Cannes 2023
Bluegame BGM75

Bluegame, since its debut, has been able to distinguish itself in the marketplace through its search for novel solutions, going out of its way to offer the alternative that often seemed not to be otherwise present. In line with this philosophy, the brand now arrives at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2023 (Sept. 12-17) with a new model, the first flagship and progenitor of Bluegame‘s new line of multihulls: the BGM75, a luxurious 22.7-meter devoted to exploring uncharted territories.

The first in the new BGM range, the BGM75 is not intended to be a simple motor catamaran. Indeed, the brand hints at the opposite, pointing out how it is actually a monohull that coincidentally features two separate hulls. A marketing choice actually intended to indicate a deliberate design differentiation from market standards, because the new 75-footer wants to be something different. At 22.7 meters long and just 8 meters wide, the entire design seeks, in fact, a new solution for the range, thus hybridizing the qualities of monohulls and multihulls into a boat strong in 3 or 4 double cabins -depending on layout, large living spaces and Maximum speeds in excess of 20 knots.

Project

Son of the design studies conducted by Bluegame for the development of its BGH -the hydrogen-powered multihull chase-boat intended for the America’s Cup– the BGM75 bears Philippe Briand’s signature on the development of the living work, optimized for a pair of 550-horsepower Volvo IPs, optionally upgradeable to 625. Also in terms of construction, the hull is optimized to maximize hydrodynamic performance and efficiency, including contemplating the use of carbon for weight management and weight distributions.

So much attention, however, also lies in the management of volumes, aimed at optimizing its overall dimensions (22.7 x 8 m), which, on the strength of a ratio more similar to that of a monohull than to a catamaran of the same square footage, allow the BGM75 to occupy the space of a barely longer monohull, with the advantages, however, given by the volumes and stability of form proper to multihulls.

Turning to the design and exterior volumes, the BGM75 immediately strikes you with its sleek, longish, and compact lines by the standard to which catamarans have accustomed us. Almost monolithic at a glance, the reduced ratio between length and beam draw a hull that is difficult to compare with the market, strong, in the Bluegame tradition, with its own distinct and individual meaning.

Coming to the actual spaces, the BGM75 welcomes with a beach area of important dimensions, extendable beyond the maximum beam thanks to the folding section of the bulwarks to the little garden, thus able to create a huge terrace on the sea. Also in the center of this, which is fully automated, is the tender garage, which uses the central part of the beach area as if it were a lift, elevating or bringing the tender into the water.

At a higher level than the beach area, where the deck then actually develops, the cockpit conforms as a terrace facing aft, effectively balanced by ample forward lounge spaces, complete with large sundeck, C-shaped sofa and central table.

The fulcrum of outdoor life thus appears to be the upper bridge, or flybridge complete with an external wheelhouse with futuristic lines, large central convivial area and aft solarium. All protected by a hard top with particularly light and minimal lines.

Interior

Returning to reduction of lateral encumbrances, it should be emphasized that this does not only result in a distinct look and dimensional advantages, but also allows for a more versatile space design, strong with easier management of the maximum beam, including the space placed between the two hulls, especially below deck. A detail that, in terms of layout, implies the presence of a large full-beam master cabin, strong with space generally absent on catamarans.

To this, depending on the layout chosen, are added two more double cabins, a galley and the crew area-in the case of the design signed Lissoni & Partners; or three more double cabins, thus bringing the total berths to 8 plus crew area-in the case of the design signed by Zuccon,-at the expense of the galley, provided in this one on the deck.

The model’s living area then comes to life on the deck, enclosed in a volume surrounded by 360-degree windows. This open space contains, with some differences depending on the layout chosen, a large aft relaxation area, complete with seating and sofas, and a second forward area more set toward conviviality or mealtime. In the version designed by Zuccon, we also find the kitchen here.
