Xtenders 8.0m Socium Open

The story

The open limousine Socium is a compact elegant tender that combines bespoke styling and comfort at sea with a multipurpose lay-out. The Moderate V-hull design by Vripack and carbon fiber based technology guarantees durability, great sea-keeping and dry riding.

All aspects of the design can be customized to match her motehrship’s styling and required functionality.

The 8.0m Socium features a large centre seating plan combined with two drivers bolster seats to optimally accommodate the guests and ensure that the crew is in control in all situations. Boarding is facilitated through aft deck and side stairs at the bow. In addition the bow can be opened to provide the beach access. Bow seating can accommodate up to 4 passengers.

A soft-top canopy is optionally available to provide shelter from the elements. For a more convenient enclosure see our 8.0 Open Socium HT.
