6.5m Multi-Role Open Tender
Introducing the SPARK S650 multi-role tender concept designed by SPARK Marine Projects:
Developed in response to insights from superyacht captains, crew, and clients, the S650 is a 6.5m open tender designed for versatility and reliability, with requirements for drier and more comfortable handling, guest safety, watersports capabilities and simplified crew operations.
Building upon the success of a 5.6m open tender recently delivered to a 50m mothership, the SPARK S650 tender shares a similar design language, offering 25% more internal space than typical RIB-type tenders of this size.
Thanks to its deep-V hull, it provides improved comfort and handling for up to 10 guests and crew members. The waterline length, beam and bow volume have been optimised within a low-profile envelope to facilitate launch and recovery for a variety of open-deck and enclosed mothership garage arrangements.
Client options and differentiating features of the S650 include a removable steering wheel and seat-backs to maintain a low profile, custom wraparound fender, high-quality sound system, fold-down beach-landing ramp, retractable internal boarding steps, boarding handholds, flag-pole, ski-pole, and wakeboard rack mounts, forward and rear-facing projector lights, towing equipment and soft-shackle lifting rings.
