Michael Ferris, Director of Prout International Super Yacht Division has announced to SuperYachtTimes.com the Tristrike 420 Project. This 420’/128m tri-hull, motor yacht intended for all oceans, long range, and expedition passage making. Based on a proven military design heritage the Tristrike platform is a “mind blowing” 128m / 420’ X 27.5m / 90’.
The hull and deck is to be constructed in high-grade steel and fitted with a hi-tech infused vinylester composite five (5)-deck superstructure and modular interior furniture D.V.M. Classification and S.O.L.A.S. Fitted with three MTU 2000 diesel power plants, developing 6,000hp the vessel is calculated to have a top speed of 18 knots with a displacement of 2,500 tons. Optional turbine engines developing 26,000hp, yields a projected top speed of 40+ knots for the foiled version... Due to the tri-hull configuration aided by the Computer-Assisted-Control (C.A.C.) stability active foils, the calculation for anti-roll and high-speed control is exceptional for all sea states, for the foiled version at speeds in excess of 25 knots.
