This innovative concept of a 23.9m catamaran has been developed by Thailand-based Albatross Marine Design for custom boat builder Bakri Cono Shipyard. The boat combines the advantages of a performance ocean cruising catamaran with superb live aboard facilities, and is actually a ‘super yacht’ in terms of space but formally within easy certification small craft range below 24m.
The designers did not intend to maximize the number of beds, but in the end provided accommodation comparable with a house. An innovative solution is locating the luxury master bedroom at bridge deck, with bathroom and wardrobe down in the hull. Four guest cabins with private bathrooms are in the hulls, also the crew cabin. Cockpit and aft deck provide great space and seating for outside entertaining.
A hull shape with 10:1 length to beam ratio was selected for performance but it also provides enough volume to accommodate the cabins. Simple bridge decks with good vertical clearance – 1500mm in full load condition – is excellent for “Open Sea” cruising.
