Dune Super Tender Boat by Eugeni Quitllet | YACHTS
The 196-foot-long open-bow by Spanish designer Eugeni Quitllet is an hybrid between a sail boat and a motor boat. This one-of-a-kind concept, Dune, is the world’s first super tender with six cabins available for guests making it fine for cruising. The upper deck is pure sci-fi, with matching seats and helm stations plated in rose gold and protected by a sloping teak deck that’s shaped— of course—like a dune. Behind the helm, another curved entrance gives entry to the saloon, galley, and staterooms below. The master suite and guest cabins are finished in gold. Under the waterline, Dune’s Azimuth propulsion system includes two rotating pods that deliver exceptional maneuverability for a 200-footer. Apart from the two sculpted lounges in front of the helm, Quitllet left the foredeck empty. “I wanted the owner and guests to feel as free as possible in the middle of the ocean landscape,” he says. He estimates that build costs, including the precious materials, will approach $70 million.
