Named after a fish renowned for its leaping abilities and strength, TARPON-1 is our very own development of an inherently-armored, stealth escape tender yet fully capable to sustain your business operations even in emergency settings.
TARPON-1 is meant for three specific applications:
- as luxury escape tender for any mega-yacht, capable of carrying up to 6 people in complete comfort and survivability;
- as citadel (safe room) which can be launched from teh yacht in case of emergency;

TARPON-1 has been designed on the basis and as a combination of the best of two revolutionary boats, the Barracuda Stealth Interceptor and the XSV 17 Interceptor, both made by Safehaven Marine of Cork, Ireland.
