International Yacht Network has been a partner in Mirage Tender since the company started, however most recently IYN made a bid to purchase the company entirely. President of IYN Jarrett Bryzek said, “We needed to streamline our manufacturing process and increase the number of units delivered all while maintaining the factory to customer relationship that we are known for. We now possess the power to expand our facility, bring on new management and take the company to the next level.”
International Yacht Network has moved all of the company’s assets to Fort Lauderdale and will immediately resume production on current orders. Bryzek said, “We hope that our new facility, increased management team, new product offerings and the ability to completely build our line up in the United States will help position us as the go to manufacturer for custom tenders.”
International Yacht Network is going to use this opportunity to immediately expand their product line to include a completely redesigned 10’ rigid inflatable jet yacht tender for the fall of 2013. “We see a gap between our current collared tender lineup and the more basic inflatable tube set jet tenders that have been so popular over the years. Our design team is currently working on the prototype and it will feature the same reliable and easy to service Yamaha power plant as the rest of our lineup however this boat will fall in a lower price category with less options to choose from,” said Bryzek.
Bryzek also noted that IYN will be changing the current Mirage Tender company name to Evolution Tenders. The current Mirage Tender product line will be known as the “M” series and the upcoming inflatable tube jet series will be known as the “Evo” series under the renamed Evolution Tenders.
