85m ModCat Project L3 - With BMT Nigel Gee
Project L3 is a bold catamaran yacht concept delivering an extreme of high speed and high volume, for which BMT’s ModCat hull form is ideal.
With an overall length of 85m the catamaran design offers volume more akin to a 100-110m monohull. Such space allows for entertainment and living areas similar to land based architecture and includes some unique features. The sundeck sports an open-air fire pit surrounded by generous loungers which give perfect viewing for the giant drop-down cinema screen, a feature that is sure to be the main focus of evening entertainment. The wide beam allows for storage of an offshore racing cat and a two-man seaplane. Once deployed, these can be moored against a number of fold-down/extendable beach decks giving easy access to the water.
A number of propulsion options have been investigated from a conventional system for 20 knot performance to a hybrid CODAG system delivering 40+ knots. The ModCat hull form provides a careful balance of advanced catamaran performance with the outstanding seakeeping ability of a traditional SWATH.
