Andrew Trujillo Design has recently revealed their latest 42 metre superyacht concept. Developed in collaboration with Adam Younger who was responsible for the naval architecture, she is namedContinuum. The concept emphasises both speed and dynamism as key characteristics of her design.
She will be powered by triple waterjets driven by three MTU 16 engines which provide her with an impressive top speed in excess of 50 knots, though is also able to cruise comfortably with two engines which of course greatly extends her range. Andrew Trujillo explains a little more about her design and performance, stating: “The overall scheme shows a deep bow with fluted spray rails, giving good sea keeping and handling in various conditions, but also long and gentle water lines to give good acceleration and overall efficiency."
“Then unusually, the hull has two transverse tapered steps, combined with multiple spray rails. The geometry of these being key to getting hydrodynamic performance combined with dynamic stability. This feature has also been configured to work with jet drives and actually improve the efficiency of the units. All in all - an exciting hull form, with the potential to offer new levels of performance for the superyacht market.”
On board she accommodates guests over several well-appointed cabins, including a generous master suite located in the bow on the main deck, with the choice of either two or three guest cabins on the lower deck. The general arrangement is customisable as to suit each individual owner’s needs and desires.
An extensive sundeck above the main deck also comes with options for prospective owners to choose from, and although Trujillo envisions this area open to the elements, the option to include a complete bimini is also offered.
Speaking of his design process, Trujillo continues: “It seems that so many yachts have deck upon deck, making them look a little top heavy in my mind. I sought to return to the original principle of a fast motor yacht, I wanted to make her dynamic and [for] her lines to emphasise her length and add a sense of speed and adventure.”
