Offshore racing meets luxury leisure yacht with the all-new Onda 331 Gran Turismo. Making its world debut at Cannes Yachting Festival next month, the 33-foot tender has a two-step, deep-V hull for increased agility, and small, light engines meaning this nippy racer burns less fuel but still packs a punch.
The Onda 331 Gran Turismo is the second collaboration between the Greek shipyard and Swedish studio Mannerfelt Design Team (the first being Onda’s limousine tender, the 321L custom-made for motor yacht O’Ptasia—shown below).
The Onda 331 boasts a modular design, which means owners can fully customize the tender to suit their needs, while the vinyl-ester and foam-core composite delivers a more robust seakeeping capability than carbon-fiber alternatives.
“In recent years, we have witnessed a growing demand for custom open and limousine tenders, but with few options from which to choose,” comments George Riginos, Onda CEO. “Thanks to over 40 years’ experience helping hundreds of clients with their boat searches at our sister company Riginos Yachts, we are in a uniquely strong position to build what the market wants and needs.”
Flexibility is at the heart of the compact design that boasts numerous adaptable features, including a convertible table that transforms the U-shaped seating area into an alfresco dining space.
It is available with both inboard and outboard engines (2 x 370 hp) depending on space, preference and intended use.
All the soft furnishings, as well as the exterior paint job, can also be matched to the owner’s mothership, for a seamless, dramatic effect.
“The name Onda brings with it a certain pedigree and trust that a boat will deliver comfort, performance and seaworthiness,” adds George Riginos. “But the features and capabilities of the 331GT mark a new era for our open tenders. We have worked hard across the board to create the sense that the 331GT is not just a support boat or tender to a superyacht, but that it is a ‘mini yacht’—a standalone boat, in its own right.”
The Onda 331GT seats 12 passengers when configured for maximum seating.
