A DRIVING FORCE
The striking Impetus semi-custom series by Yachtwerft Meyer delivers an impressive contemporary design from every angle
For almost three decades, the husband and wife duo Jan and Michaela Meyer have successfully led the company
through changing times. The award-winning company from Germany is known in the tender industry for its advanced technology and progressive, contemporary design.
Drawing on a generation of custom tender design and production, Yachtwerft Meyer are proud to be pushing the limits of semi- custom offerings with the new Impetus series.
With meticulous attention to detail, sophisticated features, a striking and dynamic design, this new semi-custom series complements Yachtwerft Meyer’s existing offerings, the CC Line and the Silverline, extending the range up to 12m.
Painstakingly designed and engineered with a more aggressive, modern aesthetic, these dynamic tenders would be the perfect accessory for any modern superyacht, especially suited to a keenly styled explorer yacht.
Ranging from 10.5 to 12.0 metres in length, the new platform offers faster build times with a range of deck and interior layouts, available as a limousine or an open tender, accommodating up to 16 guests. With a beam of 3.2 metres, an overall height as low as 2.1 metres, these vessels are designed to fit into today’s superyacht garages.

Propulsion options are up to two Volvo D6- 440 with Aquamatic (Duo Prop) capable of over 30 knots top speed, with an all-electric version also at your disposal. Plus, the Impetus tenders are equipped with state- of-the-art technical features, such as gyro stabilizers, for a smooth ride.
ELECTRIC AND SUSTAINABLE OPTIONS
Sustainability is a key factor in the development of all Yachtwerft Meyer products. The Impetus range of tenders is of course optimised for emission-free propulsion, and can be constructed using natural materials such as flax fibre, cork and bio-resins.
The Impetus limousine is characterised by sharp lines and luxurious comfort. It features a high-tech opening glass roof, ergonomic seating in various configurations, full AV capabilities, wine cooler, and a wide range of customisable options. Available in aft or forward helm versions, this tender boasts exceptional design from every angle.
The open tender stands out with its uniquely designed sun deck, with innovative details and flexible functionality. It offers deep, comfortable seating, along with a distinctive sun pad and an electric bathing platform aft. The Open Impetus is a genuinely innovative tender solution that makes this vessel a destination in itself.
The significant advantage of the semi-custom series lies in its adaptability to the owner’s preferences. Let Yachtwerft Meyer bring your wishes to life with a unique Impetus tender.
