Upscale Living Magazine - - Contents - By Eu­geni Quitl­let By Lisa Marie Lash­ley

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.
