tender (craft) = a boat for carrying passengers to and from a ship, close to shore = 船舶(游览)
Explanation: Hadn't heard of this term, but it's certainly there in the company publicity.
craft = a boat, especially a small one 船舶(优指小船) The harbour was full of sailing craft. 港口里满是帆船. (朗文进阶词典)
tender = a) a ship to supply or service another ship, a submarine, etc b) a boat for carrying passengers, etc to or from a ship close to shore. (Collins Concise English Dictionary)
-> it is 2. From the texts 可以看, the 'mother ship'is a scow (= a large flat-bottomed boat with square ends, (原来) used for towing coal, sand etc. and often towed by a tug.)
-> the tenders are passenger boats which put out from the scow. (Saw this idea recently in a travel programme on TV on Antarctic cruises - where the open passenger motor boats put out from the cruise ship to sightsee and go to the shore and back - 也许在旅游业很普遍).
