Valerio Rivellini has created the Iceman, a new explorer tender for Cantiere Delle Marche's Flexplorer 146 yacht. 

The new Iceman tender will serve as a support unit for the Flexplorer 146 – a yacht designed by CDM for cruising at all latitudes including the Arctic regions – with its own tender and a wide range of water toys.

With an aluminium hull and a carbon fibre superstructure, Iceman will be 10 metres long. Stowed in the stern area of the mother boat, it will house a second tender of around 4 metres on its own stern, a clever solution devised for maximum freedom of movement on the Flexplorer’s Main Deck.

Designed to complement an explorer vessel that roams far and wide, Iceman stands out with its superb versatility and its perfect combination of structural strength and light weight. These characteristics are typical of the design philosophy espoused by the owner of Studio Rivellini Engineering & Yacht Design, ensuring easy handling thanks to the combination of an aluminium hull and a carbon fibre superstructure.

Another feature new to this sector is the second tender of 4.35 metres stowed aboard the Iceman, with a solution that occupies half the space the two craft would take up if placed side by side (the normal arrangement on yachts of this size). This placement guarantees greater freedom of movement on the mother vessel’s Main Deck. Both tenders can also be towed.

Iceman is 9.55 metres long and three metres in the beam, and with a draught of just 50 centimetres it can access even very shallow coastal waters. It has a displacement of four tonnes, can carry 10 passengers and is powered by a 370 HP Yanmar engine.

In addition to the second tender, Iceman stows all the water toys available to guests on the Flexplorer 146: two seabobs, two six-metre canoes and four super-innovative Aerofoils, as well as fishing gear and diving equipment, including six cylinders, ensuring optimal storage far from home.
