The DUBOURDIEU shipyard, headquartered at Arcachon Bay, launched its new baby “White Ocean”, developed in collaboration with the haute-couture group COURRÈGES.
It is the result of a great adventure which strengthens the links between Courrèges, historically based in Pau, and the Aquitaine region.
This pleasure boat, the Picnic Sport, is available to rent and can carry up to 16 passengers. Its construction has taken the best part of 10 years in the Gironde shipyard.
Its design “à la Courrèges” is refined, from the light colors of the hull to the furniture via the interior decoration, bath towels, beach bags and crew uniforms.
Only five of these luxury boats will be manufactured and will be sold between 560 and 680,000 euros apiece.
The first, belonging to Dubourdieu Services, a subsidiary of the shipyard, will soon set sail for the Mediterranean for a two-month rental before returning to Arcachon Bay.
Luxury is one of the leads explored by DUBOURDIEU who might collaborate with other big names in the future.
