A number of propulsion options have been investigated from a conventional system for 20 knot performance to a hybrid CODAG system delivering over 40 knots. The semi-SWATH catamaran resulting from BMT’s development programmes in the naval and offshore industries provides a careful balance of advanced catamaran performance with the outstanding seakeeping ability of a traditional SWATH.

James Roy, Design Director at BMT comments, “This was both a very exciting and challenging proposal to work on as the styling needed to reflect the speed of the vessel while maintaining a high volume for the interior. Gentle flowing lines which have a sense of urgency about them have been combined with a bold colour choice to ensure that this 85m, high performance catamaran makes a statement in the harbour!”

James Roy, continues, “It is always refreshing to work on a design which challenges convention and to integrate technology developed in other markets, it will take a visionary client to realise the project.”
