UK designers BMT Nigel Gee and Design Unlimited have unveiled plans for a new 40m catamaran that features three potential propulsion packages; twin MTU diesels with propellers, Twin MTU diesels with water jets or CODAG (COmbined Diesel And Gas) with water jets. Speed and ranges for the three options are 20kt (2,600nm), 32kt (1,800nm) and 41kt (1,750nm) respectively.
The designs feature an aft facing owner’s cabin with full beam view, walk in dressing room/bathroom and a large study. The main deck below has two VIP cabins and a gym with a side-opening terrace. There’s a full beam saloon with inside/outside dinning options for 12 people.
The port hull has cabins for six-crew, a crew mess and galley, laundry area and separate foredeck access, whilst the starboard hull has two large VIP en-suite cabins that can be converted into a single VIP or master suite, depending on owner’s choice.
