Newly-founded yacht builder Amasea Yachts has announced a 25 metre tri-deck catamaran concept.
To be built in aluminium with a reinforced hull, the yacht is designed for long range cruising. It will be able to cross the Atlantic without refuelling, and has sufficient dry and cold storage to remain at sea for up to six weeks without re-provisioning.
Unlike most multihulls, there’s a third deck and a dedicated service area for the crew. This also allows more flexibility in terms of the layout. The master suite, for example, can be on the main or lower deck and the yacht is designed with two galleys: one for guest use and a smaller one for the crew.
Dr. Albert Nazarov is responsible for exterior design and naval architecture while interiors are left to the will of the client. The yacht will have a total length of 25.45 metres, a 10.98 metre beam and a draught of 1.79 metres, while power will come from two MTU 10V2000 1920hp diesel engines.
“The whole story started with our own requirements that could not be met by composite builders. I decided to go back to the drawing board when I was in the market for a 20-25 metre catamaran to cruise the world but couldn’t find what I was looking for,” said Amasea Yachts founder Jack Wijnants.
Amasea Yachts is to set up its own shipyard in Turkey to build the hull and superstructure. The first hull is expected to take 18-20 months to complete with subsequent builds taking between 13 and 16 months and production limited to seven units per year.
