Echo Yachts’s unveils new range of high performance Active-foiling Trimaran Sports Yachts from 28m
Australian superyacht builder Echo Yachts and multihull design specialists One2Three Naval Architects have teamed up again to launch a new range of Active-foiling Trimaran Sports Motoryachts, comprising 28m, 30m, 38m and 40m models.
According to Echo Yachts, trimarans offer significant advantages over traditional monohulls in terms of hydrodynamic efficiency, fuel and emissions reductions, inherent stability, ride comfort and lower incidence of sea-sickness. Building on the success of its 84m White Rabbit trimaran superyacht, the team are now offering their innovative solutions for the 25m-50m market segment.
The flagship models of the range TSY38 and TSY40 are high performance aluminium sports yachts capable of 32 knots and 40 knots respectively. TSY38 features a twin-engine twin-screw propulsion package and TSY40 features a premium triple engine triple water jet propulsion upgrade. Both models provide accommodation for 8 guests and 8 crew with helicopter landing capability.
Combined with One2Three’s foiling multihull technology demonstrated with M/Y Andiamo, and Naiad Dynamics’ latest active-foiling ride control system, Echo claims the craft offer extremely smooth high-speed cruising and a shallow draft of less than 1.6m for unrestricted lagoon and waterways access.
All models in the range will feature ”ultra-modern styling” and expansive beams that provide large interior and exterior guest areas.
