It’s a Workhorse and a Thoroughbred
The term Workhorse refers to a particular type of horse that was bred to haul heavy loads all day long without tiring. On the other end of the spectrum is the Thoroughbred. The Thoroughbred was bred to race. It can reach levels of performance that other horses simply cannot. A Munson tender comes from a long line of both. Huge loads are not a problem. Dock or no dock, you can run aground, load or unload passengers and gear, then run back to your vessel with agility & performance.
While tenders are used for a wide variety of transportation tasks, one of the most important features of a tender is the ability to move passengers to and from the beach. Delivering a group of excited guests to a beach picnic, exploring a remote stretch of shoreline or simply loading up passengers & gear from wherever you need to be, nothing gives you the unrestricted access of a Munson Yacht Tender.
