Following the highly innovative 45m catamaran EQUINOX, featured on CharterWorld in March 2014, the super-fast 42m MY CONTINUUM concept represents another great result of a creative collaboration between Andrew Trujillo Design and Adam Younger. The aim of this yacht concept was to take on a relatively conventional layout, clothe it with a contemporary and dynamic design plus design a very quick vessel.
In fact, MY CONTINUUM has been designed to achieve thrilling speeds in excess of 50 knots, thanks to her triple water jets driven by three MTU 16 Cylinder diesels. Moreover, the hull form is based on a balanced and efficient dynamic platform to offer a great combination of speed and handling.
MY CONTINUUM has a deep bow with fluted spray rails, resulting in a good sea keeping and handling in various conditions. Furthermore, she features long and gentle waterlines to give good acceleration and overall efficiency. The hull has two transverse tapered steps, mixed up 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.
Accommodation layout consists of a generous master cabin, positioned on the main deck in the bow, providing fantastic views of the surroundings, as well as all the luxuries of a Superyacht. The main deck also hosts a main salon area, which can feature a formal dining area and lounge. Guest accommodation can be found on the lower deck, including two or three guest cabins.
Externally, MY CONTINUUM offers an amazingly huge sundeck, located above the main deck. The sun deck can host a complete bimini, but the design has deliberately sought to leave the deck open to the elements. Andrew commented: “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 a dynamic and her lines emphasize her length and add a sense of speed and adventure to it.”
Some interesting and innovative features include the aft mounted communication/radar masts, providing visual balance to the wedge shape, as well as the completely enclosed anchor pocket, allowing the hull to retain the clean lines, not only for aesthetic, but also for good hydrodynamic reasons.
