I was wondering whether there is a perspective for more multi-hulled megayachts to be build in the future, given the obvious advantages they have over monohulls concerning stability at bad wheather conditions or the higher speed with lower fuel consumption. Not that fuel prices would be a problem for an owner of a 60 meter yacht anyway but there seem to be designs on the way that do actually point in that direction, Craig Loomes' work in New Zealand for example.
Do you think there will be more yachts like White Rabbit coming up in the future? I heard Loomes Design has completed a design for a 130 meter trimaran wavepiercer... I would love to see how such a behemoth would look like...
Boats that bring efficiency over a range of speeds are appealing to today’s coastal cruiser. Those with style and a bit of panache are sure to have their own admirers. The Absolute 52 Navetta will certainly fall into both categories.
