Naval architect, Albert Sedlmayer, recently formed a standalone company; Sedlmayer Associates PTY Ltd. The new company is set to quickly make an impact within the industry, with the new Spectrum 52 catamaran design class ofﬁcially being launched to market.
With more than 40 years experience in the naval architecture and marine design sector, and an enviable design portfolio which includes 22-metre catamaran Stars and Stripes and 18-metre Pride of Airlie (formerly Pride of Auckland) Sedlmayer’s designs show crucial insight into the functionality and onboard experience of sailing and power catamarans.
The Spectrum 52 class will be the largest sailing catamaran in the world, when built. Slender, low-resistant hulls deliver efﬁcient speed via the MTU 16V 2000 M84 1,630 KW engines, while the generous overall beam provides abundant living space and stability with ample power to carry sail. That beam, at 22.2-metres, makes the Spectrum 52 a cruising delight with plenty of scope for multiple areas to lounge, eat and relax.
A sail area of 1,700m2 means 20 knots is achievable in favourable conditions under sail or power. Classic lines rule on the main deck with the aft superstructure sides draping around accommodation features. On the upper deck, the superstructure pulls attention from formal outer lines with a dramatic cut back meaning glimpses of interior shout for the eyes‘ attention.
With accommodation for owners, eight guests and eight crew, the yacht is designed with designated crew corridors to allow easy, discrete service to guests. The generous guest suites are complete with walk in robes and bathrooms, writing desks, lounge chairs and weathertight seadoor access to sidedecks.
An indoor gym sits forward of the guest suites, to port, while a boardroom to starboard means trips onboard need not be interrupted when business demands attention. A library, exceptional beach clubs and impeccable design are just some of the multitude of features which complete the design.
Sedlmayer Associates PTY Ltd will present Spectrum at the Sanctuary Cove Boat Show in May this year, where Albert Sedlmayer will be on hand in the Superyacht Pavilion to discuss the beneﬁts of the design with media and show visitors.
