The second pair of F620 Yacht Tenders was launched in October 2011. Powered by Volvo D3 220hp engines with stern legs, rather than the Yanmar 260hp and Hamilton Jets of the earlier Kokomo boats; these Tenders achieved a top speed of 43 knots.
The sea keeping qualities of these boats continues to impress, with the heavily flared hull coupled with the folding bow dodger creating an extremely dry and comfortable ride. The Volvo power assisted steering system provides fingertip control, while the stern leg trim control further enhances the rough water handling capabilities.
The first two of Lloyd Stevenson's F620 Yacht Tenders were commissioned for SY Kokomo and have performed beyond all expectations. The low topsides necessary in most Yacht Tenders to enable storage in tight Lazarette spaces often results in a wet ride, but Fontaine Design Group did a superb job with the hull form to create a vessel that performs incredibly well at all speeds while remaining very dry and safe to handle.
While both boats have swim platforms with deck showers and retractable ladders, rod storage racks and through deck rod holders, one will serve more as a fishing tender and as the yachts rescue boat, while also being the crew transport and provisioning vessel. This tender also has a ski or wakeboard pole and removable game fishing outriggers.
