Beiderbeck unveils 105m sail-assisted hybrid catamaran concept

15 September 2022 • Written by Katia Damborsky

German studio beiderbeck designs has lifted the lid on a new sail-assisted hybrid catamaran set to measure 105 metres in length.

The yacht was presented during the Cannes Yachting Festival and will feature four foldable rigid wings that also function as large solar panels, working in conjunction with a conventional diesel-electric propulsion system. The hotel load will be powered by the solar panels with the assistance of a hydrogen generator and methanol-reformer.

A representative of beiderbeck designs said: "We estimate a reduction of fuel consumption and CO² output of up to 50 per cent compared to a standard motor yacht of the same size and comfort."

A beam of 30 square metres provides plenty of space for amenities, including a beach club with spa and wellness area that connects directly to the swim platform. There is also a pool, which measures 16 by five metres on the main deck aft, and a helicopter landing pad and hangar on the roof deck. 

In terms of tender storage, the catamaran concept has a garage that opens up between the two hulls, with protected boarding facilities along the inner hull side.

A total 1,500 square metres of solar panels can be installed on board, which work together with the design's 1,060 square metres of sail area. 

Accommodation is for 14 guests across five cabins and a spacious owner's suite. Meanwhile, additional cabins sleep a complement of 36 crew.  

The beiderbeck studio is no stranger to multihull designs, having previously worked on an 80 metre catamaran concept Columbus2.
