New adventure vessel range, Roam, launched
A new range, Roam, has been launched which is designed for the adventurous superyacht owner.
It currently includes a series of smaller, 4.5–6m fully inflatable outboard ribs, the Roam inflatable landing craft, a D rib range from 8–10m, and the ‘ultimate toy carrier’, the 24m or 27m Roam Shadow.
Josh Richardson, CEO, says Roam is focussed on providing the superyacht industry with the most seaworthy and capable vessels to enable owners to push the boundaries of what is possible.
“There is no comparable set of vessels designed for the adventurous owner who wishes to go off the beaten track and explore. Whatever the weather, wherever it is being used there is no better tender or yacht support vessel for delivering the adventure,” says Richardson.
Roam’s range has been developed in collaboration with a team of naval architects and designers, yet every boat is tailored to the individual client requirements.
Roam Shadow is available as 24 or 27m and, the company says, is conceived as the ultimate toy carrier. This is specifically designed to be a second yacht and prioritises functionality to support a main yacht with immense storage capacity, a high speed (up to 27 knots) and only crew accommodation. It is value driven and is said to offer owners a cost effective way to not need to limit tenders, toys and submersibles to ones that can only be carried on their main yacht.
The vessel has a large open deck, with crane, plus a fully enclosed indoor hangar storage which can also convert into a gym, spa and wellness centre. Richardson says this is the world’s first turnkey solution that provides the yacht, all equipment, tenders, chocks, cradles, fendering and more all under one package with a single manufacturer. This, he says, ensures cost savings for the owner combined with seamless control during the manufacturing process to ensure everything fits and works as it should without issues.
Roam tenders are available in GRP or aluminium and have D RIB tubes which give a vast interior volume aiding crew duties, watersports and guest transfers and the tenders all have storage and load carrying of yacht toys and equipment. This includes built-in Seabob racks with chargers, dive bottle racks, air compressor, load carrying raising and lowering roof rack for bikes, kayaks, surfboards and more.
