ECO Catamaran Concepts to Watch

Italian shipyard Wider and Pajot Custom Yachts have announced their partnership for the building of 33.6m catamaran 110’ called “Eco-Yacht”.

The hulls and bridge deck will be built in aluminium paired with a composite superstructure.

Low drag catamaran hulls are combined with simple sail handling for good sea keeping and easy handling with minimum crew.

The 14.12 metre beam meanwhile provides an interior living area of more than 200 square metres as well as plenty of outdoor entertainment areas, including more than 200 square metres of dining and relaxation areas forward and aft of the flybridge.

The interior layout and style will be custom designed to match the personality and tastes of the owner.

Accommodation on board is for a total of 12 guests, comprising two aft VIP cabins with private exterior access and a panoramic 22 square metre master cabin on the main deck, also with private outdoor access.

Elsewhere, the catamaran features a Jacuzzi on the main deck forward and counter current swimming pool aft, as well as storage for a Williams 625 tender.

Beiderbeck Designs reveals 60m catamaran concept

The concept for a new catamaran motorsailer has been revealed by German yacht designer Beiderbeck Designs. The motorsailing yacht will measure 60 metres and will be constructed from aluminium with a composite superstructure.

The beiderbeck catamaran will offer 1250 GT of interior volume spread over three full decks. Up to 12 guests can be accommodated in six cabins, with the master suite offering 100 square metres of interior space and its own private deck area. There will also be room on board for 24 crew in 14 cabins.

Interiors will be flooded by light and will offer excellent views thanks to the large windows on her hull and superstructure. The design and styling of living spaces on board will be completely customised to the owner’s preferences.

Highlights will include generous deck areas with plenty of space for al fresco entertaining, as well as an indoor/outdoor gym on the main deck. At the stern of the yacht, guests will find two large foldable transformer-style bathing platforms that can be combined into one large bathing platform measuring 12 x 3 metres.

With ample space on board there will also be plenty of room for equipment stowage, including storage for an 11 metre Solas Limo Tender, a six metre RIB and watertoys including Jet Skis.

The superyacht will feature an innovative cat rig with just two furlable mainsails, and under power from her two 1300kw propulsion engines with be able to cruise at a speed of 12 knots with a top speed of 15 knots. The designer has also suggested that it will consider using methanol propulsion to further reduce emissions and make the yacht as carbon neutral as possible.

BlackCat superyachts together with Malcolm McKeon Yacht Design has unveiled their third design in the BlackCat series, the BlackCat 30 Catamaran. 

To be built by McConaghy Boats, this 30.4-metre design collaboration is a result of requests made by clients for a catamaran of this size.

The interiors, designed by M2Atelier, feature panoramic windows, a lounge area with open space design, BlackCat 30 can host larger crowds for clients inclined to entertain. She accommodates up to eight guests in six cabins hosted by crew quarters for four. She is designed to be constructed using lightweight carbon fibre, helping her cruise efficiently with low carbon emissions.

The BlackCat 30 Catamaran, cruising at 30 knots and reaching a top speed of 32 knots, presents itself as an appealing alternative to a 40-metre monohull for many clients due to its design allowing customizability with extensive details. Malcolm McKeon comments, “There’s been space in the market for some time for a large catamaran design that can offer the luxury and quality of a superyacht this size, and also provide this level of stability and high performance.”

Being a brainchild of Australian yachtsman Mitch Booth, the BlackCat range benefits from his experiences and knowledge gained through racing a variety of catamarans in a career that earned him Olympic medals and Yachtsman of the Year awards. His over 40 years of experience in the field is now helping him shape and create the intriguing concepts of the BlackCat range.


With a constantly growing demand for large luxury sail catamarans, Sunreef Yachts teams up with one of the world’s best yacht designers Malcom McKeon to present a radical superyacht concept – the Sunreef MM460 CAT. Globally-known for in-house manufacturing and designing,  Sunreef Yachts now engages in a special collaboration focusing on one the industry’s most exciting multihull concepts. 

The design is defined by its impressive glass superstructure, atop which sits a 60 sq.m flybridge.  This additional expanse of space not only gives the dual helm positions clear sight lines in all directions, but also provides a safe yet thrilling spot for guests to relax whilst the yacht is under sail, with fantastic elevated views.

Thanks to the yacht’s 16.65m beam, the aft deck can boast positively palatial proportions.  Under the overhang of the flybridge, a sheltered lounge and al fresco dining area is created whilst further aft, L-shaped sofas nestle against the guardrail and disguise steps leading down to the swim platforms.
