SOLID Tugboat

SOLID is an authentic, full of history Dutch tug.

Build in 1940 in Rotterdam first was used by German occupants (name: H.K.7) until Netherlands liberation. In 1946 it started serving as a police boat under the name of PVII. After been used as a service boat for almost 3 decades it traveled from place to place in Netherlands and had few owners that made the boat as their home.

In 2017 we brought SOLID (ex name BREEHORN) to French Riviera for a new start. Giving tugs structure, outside space and its durability it makes a perfect Shadow Yacht – support vessel to carry all the water toys that market has to offer at this moment.

Convenient for official Flyboard shows, effective use as a water toys boat and perfect place to spend time enjoying Mediterranean sea, SOLID will be proposing most exclusive and fun day charters in the area.

The ShadowYacht SOLID is visible at the port of Mandelieu.

The Shadow Yacht is a pleasure yacht trailer to spend a day at sea with family or friends with a max of fun or to accompany your main yacht. It’s a kind of floating garage that allows you to take your water toy collection behind you like Jet Ski, Flyboard, Hoverboard, JetPack, Seabob, JetSurf, Paddle Board and more.

The ShadowYacht can also store fuel, water, spare parts and supplies of all kinds, allowing trips over longer distances and ensuring the maintenance of the toys that are stocked on board. One side practical and easy to use. You can do things with a Shadow Yacht that you could never do with another boat.

What makes the Shadow Yachts special is that they are made from marine boats out of service for professional use and therefore refitted into a custom pleasure boat at the customer’s request. A little gem made from an existing boat hull and long manual work as well as solid materials.
