Big guns collaborate on 40m catamaran

BMT Nigel Gee and Design Unlimited have announced their collaboration on the development of a 40-metre powered catamaran.

The 500 GRT design is offered with a number of propulsion options, with the fastest model offering a 41 knot top speed.

The accommodation spans three decks with the lower deck being split across the two separate demi-hulls.

This lower deck includes crew accommodation to port with cabins for six, the crew mess and galley, the laundry area and separate access to the foredeck. The starboard hull contains two large, well appointed, en-suite VIP cabins with the option to convert them into a single large VIP or master suite.

The main deck features two further en-suite VIP cabins and a gym with side-opening terrace for an indoor/outdoor workout. There is also a large, fully-equipped galley.

The full-beam saloon occupies the aft section of the main deck with inside/outside dining options for 12, plus a bar, large comfortable lounging areas and circular sliding doors giving access onto the aft sundeck. This sundeck incorporates a feature pool which can also be accessed from the aft hull swim platforms.

The upper deck holds a massive suite with an aft facing central bed, which takes in the full width view. There is also a walk-in dressing room/bathroom and large office. Finally there is a large en-suite captain’s cabin which has private access to the spacious wheelhouse.

The exterior of the yacht is well planned with generous sunbathing and outdoor seating spaces. The main deck has a large foredeck which houses two 6-metre tenders together with a crane and there is also a lower garage for jet skis and water sports equipment.
