D23 is a 7 meter lenght tender type boat designed and produced in Barcelona by Ubica designers team for a new motor boats brand, ideal for day trips and coastal sailing, as well as a tender for mega yachts or water taxi for resorts, channels and harbor areas of touristic interest.

The D23 simple lines and angular shapes make it an elegant boat, unlike most boats, especially of this length. It has been designed especially considering the ergonomics aspects to provide maximum comfort for both the steering and their occupants. The boat performs excellently sailing and even provides comfort above the ordinary sailing at over 30 knots with great stability and grip.

Its most remarkable innovation aspect is the concept of the engine location. The result is the use of a conventional outboard motor, with a power between the 115HP and 175HP, which that thanks to a wise combination of volumes and proportions of the boat it’s completely hidden. That’s how it offers the advantages of an outboard motor with the aesthetic result of an inboard engine and a better use of the space on deck. Moreover, the cover, which also has strategic holes for the engine ventilation, has the advantage of acting as a sound enclosure reducing the noise that the engine generates.

Hull and deck are fiberglass and polyester resin made. Deck finished in teak and details in carbon fiber.

It’s designed for up to 6 people and offers various seating and deck configuration possibilities. There’re a lot of optional pieces to adapt the D23 to each customer’s preferences so it can be perfectly adapted to each needs and type of navigation. The D23 can have the bow closed with a sundeck or completely clear; it can also come with a low windshield as a baffle or a raised one to provide more protection and you can even opt for a hard top or a removable bimini perfect for those hot summer days.

The aft area, which also allows different adaptations, has wide aisles and easy access through the bathing semi-platforms.

The boat include also a fenders kit designed with a special shape which allows 2 positions, outside to make the fender function and inside to be used like a cushion to be stand up on the boat during the trip.

The wide range of colors to choose for the hull and cushions and the great combination of elements to equip the D23 makes that there are no two D23 alike and can be adapted to each person’s preferences.
