Essay

The 'Tender 08' motorboat was created as a cooperative venture between the Fachhochschule Nordwestschweiz (FHNW), Bootswerft Heinrich AG and further industrial partners. Designed as a day boat for up to eight persons, it is characterised by its clearly defined lines and the top quality materials that have been used. The design emphasises safety and functional effectiveness. The hull made of composites materials has been produced with the help of modern process technology. This makes the boat light and agile, and gives the advantages of its energy-efficient drive system every chance to shine.

Comment by the nominators:
With its combination of efficiency, economy and elegance, this luxury sports boat is impressive. It represents the state of the art in boat-building today. In addition, it may be seen as the result of a model partnership between industry and college research institutes.
