In the international leisure yachting market there is a growing need for green sailing and customizable spacious ship interiors. That's why this Dutch entrepreneur together with professional partners from the maritime leisure industry developed a composite catamaran yacht. In this development he also involved renowned companies from the regular interior/furniture sector. The catamaran concept offers a spacious flat floor experience aboard and low power needs due to the two narrow catamaran hulls. The moderate width of this catamaran motor yacht (12 x 4,90 meter) is tuned for use on inland lakes and waterways. But it is also suitable and certified for sailing in coastal areas (CE category B). The spacious flat floor creates flexibility in the floor pan and enables the application of high end regular (kitchen)furniture. The company is looking for dealers and agents in the field of yachting but also holiday real estate in Northern Europe, Austria and Switzerland, within the framework of a commercial agency agreement.
Innovations and advantages
The main innovation of this yacht is that is extremely energy-efficient due to the combination of the catamaran concept and an innovative (hybrid) propulsion system. With the 100% electric version it is possible to sail a full day electrically giving the experience of a sailing boat. Compared to other mostly from big sailing catamarans derived motor catamarans the moderate width and height of this catamaran make it very suitable for cruising (narrow) inland waters and sailing under bridges. Within the catamaran concept a spacious flat floor creates flexibility in the floor plan and enables the application of high end regular (kitchen)furniture. Extensive possibilities for customization of propulsion, layout and finishing are also distinguishing aspects of the yacht in meeting customer wishes.
