Marcelo Penna Yacht Design have just released their latest concept, the 56.65-metre superyacht Triexplorer. As the design’s name implies, the innovative vessel is a trimaran with explorer capabilities.The Triexplorer’s hull configuration has been designed to ensure that those on board can reach some of the world’s most remote corners while ensuring minimal environmental impact. She is equipped with a diesel propulsion system in combination with a hybrid system, which is powered by batteries. The superyacht is also outfitted with solar panels to power her generators, further limiting her environmental impact. This also helps to ensure reduced fuel consumption and operating costs.
Her ability to harness renewable energy sources further adds to her explorer capabilities as she can remain in more remote locations without having to refuel. She is autonomous up to 6,000 nautical miles. It is optional to construct the superyacht to DP-2 class standards, which means that if the vessel were to experience a partial system failure it would not cause an overall failure of her systems.The unique tri-hull not only helps to optimise her performance, but also serves to maximise space on board. The owner’s deck is 646 square-metres and includes a spacious owner’s stateroom with separate his-and-hers bathrooms, an adjacent office, an observatory lounge and a glass pool.
The Triexplorer can accommodate as many as 12 guests throughout her 1,330 GT interior volume. The superyacht is outfitted with plenty of amenities including a gym, sauna, multiple saloons, a library, a cinema and expansive deck space.
To compliment her explorer capabilities, the Triexplorer can accommodate multiple tenders, a helideck, a permanent helicopter hangar, a submarine, a diving area and a beach club.Performance-wise, the superyacht, which will be constructed with an aluminium hull and superstructure, can reach a maximum speed of 20 knots and cruise at 15 knots. She will be operated by a crew of 20.
