Pioneering the Future of Dinghies and Tenders: ASTenders Arrives in Australia and New Zealand

Carbon Yachts is excited to announce a significant milestone in our journey towards redefining luxury and performance in maritime solutions. Our exclusive partnership with ASTenders marks the beginning of a new era for boating enthusiasts in Australia and New Zealand. With the introduction of ASTenders’ innovative, high-performance carbon-fibre dinghy tenders from Germany, we are set to bring unparalleled quality and sustainability to the shores of Australia and New Zealand.

A New Wave of Innovation and Craftsmanship

ASTenders, known for their refined craftsmanship and commitment to environmental stewardship, aligns perfectly with our vision at Carbon Yachts. Their dedication to producing long-lasting, high-quality boats through advanced, industrialized composite production ensures that we can offer our customers products that not only meet but exceed their expectations.

The ASTenders range, including the groundbreaking 340 Revolve with its Mitek electric engine system, and the remarkably lightweight 280, showcases the future of boating. Capable of reaching a top speed of 25 knots with a range of 120nm, and with a dry weight of only 30kgs for the 280 model, these tenders promise to redefine what is possible in the small tender market.

Premiering at the Sydney International Boat Show

The Australian premieres of these models are eagerly awaited at the Sydney International Boat Show, scheduled for August 1-4. This event will not only highlight the innovative 340 Jockey and versatile 280 but also introduce the new 400 Centre Console models, bringing the future of sustainable luxury to the Australian maritime community.

A Shared Vision for a Greener Future

Our partnership with ASTenders is rooted in a mutual commitment to sustainability and innovation. With their use of recycled materials, electric propulsion options, and advanced manufacturing processes that minimize waste and emissions, ASTenders is at the forefront of eco-friendly maritime solutions. This collaboration signifies our shared vision for the future of boating, emphasizing our commitment to not just luxury, but sustainability and efficiency.

Experience the Future of Boating

Following their showcase at the Sydney Boat Show, the ASTenders range will be proudly displayed in our showrooms located in Sydney and the Gold Coast. This strategic move ensures that enthusiasts and prospective buyers in Australia and New Zealand have ongoing access to experience firsthand the exceptional design and performance that ASTenders offers.
