Motor Yacht A tenders – Starck Design

Motor Yacht A and Sailing Yacht A are some of the most spectacular and largest private yachts ever designed and built. Crafted by famed designer Philippe Starck, these are examples of sheer opulence that even multi-millionaires dream of.

The tenders are things of beauty and more attainable for mere mortals when our heads hit the pillow. For Motor Yacht A, Starck designed two stunning 11m tenders called the Limo Tender and the Open Tender to be used for two specific purposes.

Limo Tender is simply used to shuttle guests and the owner, Andrey Melnichenko, to shore and back. It features a beautiful teak and holly deck and bow, but that’s not the stand out feature. That lies to the interior. One that is so plush that it surpasses five star hotels with 1.9m of headroom, supple looking armchairs and sofas allowing guests to relax as they are chauffeured to shore.

The Open Tender on the other hand is more a service tender than anything else. With an open compartment, it allows the crew to access elements of Motor Yacht A’s bow and sides, but that didn’t stop Starck from designing it to be as unique as its sister tender, with its circular guest compartment.
