The yacht is an adaptation of a traditional catamaran hull - still with under carriage clearances - and boasts useable interior and exterior areas similar to that of an average 40-metre tri-deck monohull.Photo: Lazzara Ombres Architects“The innovation is the stepped layout and higher freeboard which achieves a flush, full beam, lower deck” says Joe Lazzara, a third generation yacht designer.
