80m Sailing Trimaran
This design is a striking all-aluminium 80 metre 5 deck 3 masted trimaran with folding amas.
The rig is highly innovative and cutting-edge, similar to the wing masts recently used on the America’s Cup AC72 yachts. The system does away with the use of sheets for control, instead relying upon a powered rotating mast which supports the aerofoil section sail. Along with being fully automated the system also has the advantage of being able to rotate the sail surface to achieve the most efficient angle to the wind on any point of sail. Another unique feature is the ability to gybe the sails over the foredeck due to the 360 degree rotational freedom of the rig.
One particular issue addressed by this design is the problem that such a large beam of 30m can create when in harbour. It was decided that the amas should be designed to fold away alongside the main hull when docked. This provides a much reduced beam at 20m and will allow the multihull to access marinas that would otherwise be off-limits.
Her layout was designed to be charter-friendly, accommodating 12 guests in six cabins and supported by a crew of 17. Crew cabins are located in the amas while the Captain’s suite is on the upper deck, not far from the bridge. Tenders and toys are also stored within the amas leaving the aft end of the vessel available for a stunning Owner’s suite, complete with permanent balcony and private access foyer.
The main and upper decks are dedicated to social areas which will offer unparalleled views out to sea. Facilities on the main deck will include the Saloon, Bar, Dining Room, Library, Spa and a Gym , all encompassed by a wide promenade offering the sheer luxury of space. Outside dining is catered for at the aft end of this deck, while the foredeck is kept clear as a reconfigurable space that can be populated with loose furniture as desired.
The upper deck features the skylounge and has an emphasis on out-door enjoyment. A large exterior bar overlooks the Spa Pool and spacious sun-pads. This area can also be shielded from the sun by the built-in awning system. Forward of the bridge is another large exterior seating area including a bar/TV cabinet which leads on to open deck space for sun-loungers.
Exterior helm stations are located on the fifth, upper-most deck and boast commanding views of the rig and offer clear views out to sea. This deck also provides seating and a bar for guests to share in the thrill of helming the powerful, graceful yacht.
