The impressive 21-metre beam of this unique superyacht provides the landing deck for the Agusta Westland 609, and especially enough volume to also allow for a hangar to store this aircraft.

The AW609 Tiltrotor revolutionises flying. It uniquely combines the attributes of fixed wing and rotary wing aircraft. The speed, the range and ‘above the weather’ capability of a fixed wing turboprop is coupled with the take-off and landing versatility of a helicopter. In addition, the plane has a pressurised cabin and is twice the speed and range of a typical chopper.

The striking 100m trimaran concept also provides excellent performance and is very efficient. The estimated speed of this striking yacht is expected to be 26 – 28 knots, using standard diesel engines that would not achieve these speeds on a monohull vessel of this size. Moreover, the vessel hosts large tender garages and interior spaces.
