BMT’s XSS hull-form has now been fully proven in the demanding offshore energy industry where speed and sea-keeping ability are critical to operations. A second XSS is currently under construction in Holland with ever larger variants under design development at BMT’s Southampton based office.

James Roy, Yacht Design Director at BMT Nigel Gee concluded, “Owners, and indeed our wider industry, are quite traditional in the choice of hull-form. It would be nice to see a greater take-up of multihull platforms.

Our XSS provides the best compromise between performance and sea-keeping ability for a high speed catamaran and Claydon Reeves have demonstrated with Project Chuan just how that volume can be put to use for dramatic effect.”
