In this article we will define these terms and explain how the Tesoro Yachts fits into different categories.


A walkaround boat has wide side decks, making it easy to move around and access everywhere. This makes them ideal for families and groups, because everyone can move freely without having to step over each other. The Tesoro has wide gangways around the deck, making it perfect as a walkaround boat.


Tenders are relatively small boats used to sail from a larger motor yacht to shore. They are often light and easy to maneuver. Tesoro can be used perfectly for this purpose.

Chase boat

Chase boats are a relatively new type of boat specifically designed for use with superyachts. Chase boats are larger than tenders and intended to operate independently of the yacht. They are often used for exploration, the chase boat can sail ahead to find the perfect anchorage or to explore interesting places nearby. The chase boat can take guests to remote locations for water sports activities such as jet skiing, wakeboarding, or scuba diving. In short, a chase boat is a type of luxury support vessel for superyachts, which can operate independently and provide guests with additional options to enjoy their time on the water.
