For several months, the engineering and naval architecture office of Blue Coast Yachts at Coste Design & Partners has been developing several power trimarans, comprising one 60-metre and two 53-metre yacht models. The composite material construction process, making use of epoxy, glass, as well as carbon fiber, has just commenced this month.
The yachts have a transatlantic range and reach a maximum speed exceeding 30 knots. For silent low speed navigation and maneuvering, each outrigger (ama) is fitted with a high torque electric motor as auxiliary propulsion.
The interior, customized to the wishes of the owner, gives priority to volume with a modern and minimalist decor. Extensive hydro and aerodynamic research conducted by Gilles Vaton, who collaborated on the project, helped to develop highly efficient water lines and geometry linked to a wing-shaped cross beam generating ground effect to increase comfort and performance even in rough seas.
