What would you say is the most important amenity to have on a superyacht? It’s all about preference given the naval architect, designers, and shipbuilders will cater to the client’s every whim anyway. In the case of Hydro Tec’s latest catamaran concept, owners and guests are encouraged to take a dip and bask in luxury across its decks.
Unveiled at the Monaco Yacht Show last month, it was likely overshadowed by some of the hulls that were on display for the media and potential buyers. Thankfully, it resurfaced just in time for us to showcase what the Italian design group has in store for those interested in this project.
Outright, this vessel is built to cleave through the seas with its clean and hydrodynamic form. Hydro Tec did not bother with excessive aesthetic elements and opted for a sleek exterior that evokes a sense of minimalist beauty. The Magnificent 180-footer surprisingly touts a hybrid propulsion system for eco-friendly cruising.
It seems they are still in the early stages of planning as the team did not provide the complete specifications of said watercraft. However, we do know it can switch between its twin MTU engines and electric motors. The latter is purportedly enough for a leisurely yet impressive 10 knots in diesel-electric mode. It’s unclear if a completely emission-free setting is supported.
According to Hydro Tec, the Mediterranean Sea became the muse for this project. Hence, there are two jacuzzis, a pool, and a waterfall feature which becomes a serene attraction at the foredeck lounge. Inside, its volumes are adorned with organic materials such as wood and earthy tones to convey a cozy atmosphere.
All guest accommodations are spread across the upper decks, while the crew are assigned to hulls below. Meanwhile, the owner gets to enjoy a 1,000-square-foot full-beam suite where you can find the second jacuzzi and a private balcony. With a bold and captivating design like this, Hydro Tec won’t have to wait long before commissions begin to pour in.Discover More
