Question English language help is needed

I am not an English native speaker and need the correct expression.

Our boat has zodiac as a tender. According to Croatian law it must be marked as a boat belong to our sailboat called "MaRe"

What is the right English expression:

Tender of MaRe
or
Tender to MaRe
or
do I need to use a completely different term?

Your help is highly appreciated.

R.

"Tender to" ..... often marked on the dinghy as "T/T".

The hysterical laughter you hear as you drive a way in your"new" boat ..... is the seller.

None of those meet the legal requirements of Croation registry
