Spare a thought for the super rich. Not only do they have to worry about whether their luxury yacht is up to snuff, but they also have to make sure their tender can ferry guests to it in style, their day boat is well equipped for a day away, and their shadow boat has enough room for all the watertoys. French company EAMS believes it has the answer with its Tender Toy concept that it says is "3 tenders in 1."

Currently on display at the 2013 Monaco Yacht Show, the Tender Toy has a beam of 4.4 m (14.4 ft), overall length of 14.65 m (48 ft) and height of 3.4 m (11.1 ft), giving it enough room to ferry up to 14 passengers or up to 9,500 kg (20,945 lb) of supplies to and from a yacht in style.

But with a large rear garage for storing all manner of watertoys, a drawer fridge, an air-conditioned cabin housing two beds (one sliding out from a drawer) and a bathroom all coming as standard, EAMS says the vessel is also ideal as a day boat or shadow boat.

The Tender Toy features aft fold-down platforms port and starboard for launching or retrieving watertoys or taking a dip, a hydraulic table that rises from the deck, and seats that can be folded out or away to suit the circumstances at hand. The hydraulic windshield can also be lowered to get the wind in the hair or raised to link with the roof for protection from the elements.

The Tender Toy is powered by three 350 hp outboard motors and has made the leap beyond concept stage, with a number having already been sold. Prices range from €406,120 (US$548,200) without tax, up to €523,134 ($706,175) for one with all the options, which include a hydraulic crane for lifting watertoys from the garage to the water, a 4 kW generator and a Bose hi-fi system, just to name a few.

If I had the money, I would have this instead of the yacht. I think this is really nice. If I had one of these, I would charge those with mega yachts a fee for ferring people and supplies.

Support Yachts for Mega Yachts, why not. For those with the skills and experience some nice tropical jobs available!

Really, at that price, few people care.

Seems a little over done for a tender but if you have an ultra-super-mega yacht that can't go anywhere because it's too big I guess you might need this to haul your toys around? Just slightly out of my price range. I actually have seen some nice used yachts for less than this thing costs. Of course most yachts say 150 feet or less don't need something so grand. I'm sure after you've spent over $100 million on a super yacht, a half million is chump change and falls out of your pocket like a $20 out of mine...okay $5 out of mine...maybe a dollar?
