Recreational vessels are built to specific requirements, depending upon the very specific needs of the owner. For example, one request was for a live on-board tank as the owner has a hobby of diving for tropical fish and wanted to transport them to his home tank. Our 10m Naiad 'DV8' won 2009 Boat of the Year & our 10m Naiad 'DV8tion' won 2010 Boat of the Year.
