Big powered cats are an endangered species, but they may be about to make a comeback if designer Franco Gianni and SFG Yacht Design & Management have their way. The 47-metre Super Cat promises all the virtues of the form – shallow draught, and bags of space for accommodation and on deck.
The concept shows a raised pilothouse configuration, with plenty of flybridge space and a forward sunbathing area at the bow. Aft on the main deck is a hot-tub, with a cascading water effect between the hulls. Twin hulls mean more beam and plenty of extra interior space for the designer to play with.
It is, of course, fully customisable but Gianni envisages a ‘double main salon’ offering great views out and a master suite forward. There is room for six guest cabins in one hull leaving the other free for spa, gym, cinema and crew areas. Tenders and toys can be launched straight from the garage between the hulls. Four MTUs driving waterjets should ensure a stellar performance.
