The Russian organisation, Baikal Yachts Group has a unveiled a new 35-metre superyacht catamaran concept.On board, this fast-displacement superyacht will feature a spacious owner’s cabin on the second deck, spanning approximately 70 square metres, which includes a bedroom, a private office, bathroom and cloakrooms. Looking out of the owner’s suite, you are greeted with a 180-degree view, creating a feeling of infinite space.
In addition, there is a large owner’s saloon, equipped with large sofas, tables and a private bar for relaxation and entertainment. For additional all-fresco relaxation, sofas and lounging areas can also be found on the sundeck. The guest cabins located on the catamaran can be found in the main deck and in the hulls. Interestingly too, this new 35-metre catamaran also features a transformable hull which gives the vessel a differing function, depending on the objectives of the client. It can be an open cruise catamaran for day trips, have an alternative design with charter in mind, and be used as a vessel for private use by a single owner.
Indeed, the trim and outfitting level of all three versions would be considerably different, with exterior elements of the design remaining the same. As Sergey Gmyra, the owner of Baikal Yachts Group explains, “Considering the new 'wind direction' and the trend towards catamarans, our company has decided to propose to the yachting world a concept enabling a shipyard to make quick adjustments depending on the market needs without the introduction of significant changes in basic hulls”. He continued, “We are ready to provide any shipyard with the solutions that are able to meet the demands of customers of different categories.”
In addition, the new catamarans will be eco-friendly, and can easily be equipped with modern hybrid propulsion systems, with a large area of the roof over the flybridge available for solar panel installation. These solar panels will feed diesel-electric plants of differing capacities, which, in combination with her fast displacement hull, will give a considerable fuel saving at higher speeds for a vessel of her size, according to the shipyard.
