As the designer of the 34-metre multihull superyacht Quaranta, Mauro Giamboi of Giamboi Designs Ltd has revealed his latest catamaran superyacht concept named EGO. The concept is inspired by the style of Italian sports cars and an informal way of living in luxury.
Spread over three decks and stretching 12.8-metres across, EGO offers guests all the spatial advantages associated with a multihull vessel, combined with good sea keeping capabilities due to her low profile and twin-hull design. Furthermore, EGO is designed to be ultra efficient with a shallow draft of 1,6 metres and a composite or lightweight aluminium construction.
Guests can relax on the huge swimming platform aft that covers 12 square metres and is hydraulically operated to be closed while at sea for safety.
“New clientele tend to be less formal in their approach to yachting” feels Giamboi. This approach is visible through the spacious and simple interior and contemporary loft-like styling of the areas.
With a full beam salon and two principal cabins on the main deck, the guest spaces are larger and closer to water access than most superyachts. Two further guest cabins are located in the portside hull, whilst most of the six crew reside in the starboard hull.
Two different propulsion packages both offer top speeds of 30 knots or higher, with a Hydro-Jet system delivering a maximum speed of 32 knots. The more efficient conventional propulsion package will provide a range of 3,000 nm.
