Curvelle highlights clever feature of its power catamaran Quaranta

The catamaran builder Curvelle has teamed-up with submarine builder U-Boat Worx to highlight the ingenuity of its first build’s stern platform.

Curvelle is currently building the world’s largest carbon hybrid composite power catamaran, the 33.7m Quaranta, at Logos Marine in Turkey, with delivery expected early next year.

‘Having twin hulls, with a 9m beam and a good freeboard, it allowed us to use the aft deck area as a lifting platform,’ notes Curvelle founder Luuk van Zantan. ‘This is a 6m rigid aluminium structure which is powered hydraulically on Teflon slides with a rating of four tonnes.’

At deck level it provides a large area for lounging or entertaining. Alternatively, it can be lowered to water level and become the beach club, or further to 85cm below the surface to launch toys, the vessel’s custom catamaran tender and even, of desired, a mini submarine – such as the U-Boat Worx C-Quester two person submersible.

Curvelle also notes that platform is robust enough to accommodate a 4x4 car that could run on and off the quay using a custom gangplank.
