After telling you about the great success of catamarans(CLICK HERE) and 7 advantages that modern models have(CLICK HERE), today we look at how the two-hulled boat is evolving further. The news comes from Amasea Yachts, a new brand entering the boat market by changing the “recipe” of the motor catamaran. The new “ingredients”? Aluminum and three bridges. This model that significantly changes what is the standard approach to the catamaran by abandoning the classic fiberglass and two decks that usually characterize this kind of boat.

Amasea catamaran: 3 decks and aluminum for an oceanic catamaran

With a total length of 25 meters this catamaran will have as many as 3 decks and an area dedicated entirely to the crew. This “triple” subdivision of space increases flexibility in terms of interior layout, which can be totally customized. The ability to leave plenty of room for the owner’s taste in the boat’s interior is one of the shipyard’s strengths. On board it will be able to accommodate up to 20 people including crew and guests divided over the hull’s 25 meters overall. The exteriors were taken care of by Albert Nazarov, a specialist in high-speed catamarans.

The yacht is currently under construction in Turkey and will need about 18 to 20 months of work to be completed before it can leave for trans-oceanic sailings. Precisely for these long voyages the yacht is constructed of aluminum, with reinforcements on the hull for crossings in the most challenging seas. After this first model, subsequent catamarans will take about 13-16 to complete.

Boat motorization

Two MTU engines of 1920 horsepower each will push the catamaran up to a maximum speed of about 18 knots with cruising speed at 11 knots. A study is being developed to install a hybrid engine on board this Amasea.
