Wooden Boats was set up in 2012 by Marco Arnaboldi (Studio Arnaboldi) based on his experience as former director of AB Yachts, which he founded in 1992 with his father to apply the cutting-edge technology of waterjets and sandwich construction to fast yachts. The WB14 limo tender is built of carbon fibre using vacuum resin infusion for a weight of just over 7 tonnes and a top speed of 40 knots with relatively modest 370-hp engines. The sleek, low-slung exterior styling of the WB14, designed by Giorgio Cassetta, with its forward helm station and aft guest cockpit is typical of traditional Venetian taxi boats, with two generous sofas to fully enjoy the navigation. The interior design is also by Giorgio Cassetta.The sunken deckhouse is accessed via four steps and provides comfortable seating for up to 14 guests in the teak-lined, leather-upholstered and fully air-conditioned interior. The sightlines when seated are at the same height as the side windows and sliding glass skylights ensure plenty of natural light and ventilation flood the interior, allowing guests to feel in direct contact with the surrounding environment. LED lights mean that various lighting scenarios can be selected and smart details include the fold-down seat backs with glass holders.Last but not least, a very topical issue today, the automatic sanitization by means of an ozone system produced by Proteasrl, another family company. This special system ensures automatic sanitization on board after each use.
