Echo Yachts have partnered up with Sorgiovanni Design and One2Three Naval Architects on their latest project, a sleek 120-metre trimaran.
The trimaran – or ‘stabilised monohull’ – design is a form the yard are comfortable working with. The next White Rabbit is currently already in build at the yard, and will at 84-metres be the largest trimaran and largest all aluminium yacht in the world.
The trimaran form is reckoned by many to be better suited to guests who suffer from too much roll and movement in standard monohulls. The yard says the 120m concept is suited to various different types of propulsion systems, and with ‘at speed’ ride control and zero speed stabilizers will provide exemplary sea keeping, ride quality and reduced running costs.
The large interior volumes include a rotating master stateroom section, dining for 26 guests and a large cinema. There is also a private owner’s entertainment space with swimming pool, a fully-appointed gym and spa and one helipad on the sundeck and a second touch-and-go helipad on the bow.
The yacht will top out at 20 knots, and be able to cover 5,000 nautical miles at cruising speed.
