Curvelle founder Luuk V. van Zantan takes up the story: “When we decided to do something unique in the superyacht market, the power catamaran concept created many opportunities for us which is evident when you look at our website. Having twin hulls, with a 9m beam and a good freeboard, it allowed us to use the aft deck area as a lifting platform. This is a 6m rigid aluminium structure which is powered hydraulically on Teflon slides with a rating of four tons. At deck level it provides a large area for lounging or entertaining with the tender docked safely out of sight between the hulls; it can be lowered to water level and become the beach club and with a touch of a button have two water cascades with spa bubbles from underneath! The clever bit is that the platform can go 85m below the surface to launch toys and tenders and the U-Boat Worx C-Quester 2 person submersible.”

This submarine application is the perfect illustration of one of the key features of the Curvelle superyacht `quaranta` and unique for a superyacht of 34m. It illustrates the lifting capacity and size of the platform not forgetting it will support the custom catamaran tender supplied with the yacht or the optional limo tender. It is robust enough to accommodate a large 4×4 car that can run on and off to the quay using our custom gang plank system.

When Curvelle and U-Boat Worx showcase the ‘quaranta’ yacht next spring, there will be a submarine on deck which the companies believe will capture the attention and imagination of potential customers for Curvelle, potential syndicate owners and the charter market, as their strap line says `expect more`.
