Front Runners December 2015: Tender or Tourer
With its ability to accommodate eight passengers and reach a top speed of 38 knots, the new Invictus 280TT (invictusyacht.com) can be used as transport to and from a larger yacht. But with a bathroom, a shower, and a dressing room below deck, and a stove top, a refrigerator, and cabinets behind the helm, it can serve just as well as a day cruiser. The 280TT is 28 feet long and has a beam of just over 9 feet. It is furnished with a U-shaped settee at the bow and a sunbathing cushion near the stern. The starting price is about $93,000.
