Alpha Centauri Hydroplane Superyacht Tender Concept
A quick terminology primer for those unlucky individuals to whom a tender is a cheap piece of chicken: In yachting lingo, a tender is the boat you take from the shore to your yacht and back again. And the people at Alpha Centauri have come up with a concept tender that makes even that purely utilitarian vehicle the “Lamborghini of the Seas”: The Alpha Centauri Hydroplane Superyacht Tender Concept.
The Alpha Centauri Hydroplane Superyacht Tender Concept looks like the Batboat, and I’m afraid there’s just no getting around that fact. It’s almost 30 feet long and runs on a 750 horsepower, 9.5-liter Chevy V8 engine, but much like the Batboat it is still at this juncture only a concept, and not something you can actually purchase – not that you’d be able to afford it anyway.
