Electric technology company Everrati has revealed a “first-of-its-kind” Land Rover Shore Tender concept, designed in collaboration with renowned studio Bannenberg & Rowell and leading brokerage firm Edmiston.
Based on the classic Land Rover Defender platform, the Shore Tender will provide “sustainable and zero-emission” transportation on shore across a number of different terrains. This is due to its “bespoke electric powertrain”, which has been hand-built using OEM-grade components and manufacturing processes. The design also includes regenerative braking, AC and DC fast charging capability and on-vessel EV charging, enabling “clean-air use in remote locations”.
Dickie Bannenberg commented: “Bannenberg & Rowell vehicle designs are quite rare beasts – as they should be [..] We are really pleased to be teaming up with Everrati and Edmiston on the Shore Tender project.” He added that “the Shore Tender is driving silently into view at precisely the right time”.
Interiors feature a custom champagne chiller and picnic hamper in the bonnet bulge, contemporary upholstery and equipment and towel storage under its benches. It also features a sailcloth roof awning, reclaimed ocean plastic floor panels and removable doors and capstans.
The exterior paintwork can be customised to match the mothership, while custom sailcloth duffel bags (embroidered with yacht names and logos) are an additional service offered. The Shore Tender has also been designed with dismountable components, able to be stowed in the tender garage of a yacht or its support vessel.
“Working with leading British brands like Bannenberg & Rowell and Everrati is always a fabulous opportunity for us,” said Edmiston strategy director Alex Holden. “This […] is a game-changer for owners seeking to elevate their superyacht experience. The project has redefined the interaction from sea to land with a vehicle that not only provides a joyous zero-emission solution on shore but also exemplifies increased environmental responsibility in the world of luxury yachting.”
The Land Rover Defender Shore Tender adds to Everrati’s growing portfolio of redefined automotives, which includes electric versions of the Porsche 911 Coupe, Cabriolet and Mercedes-Benz W113 SL Pagoda.
