Malcolm McKeon Reveals BlackCat 30 Catamaran Concept

Malcolm McKeon Yacht Design has revealed a new sailing catamaran concept, which will become part of BlackCat Superyachts’ range of high-performance catamarans.

The 30.4 metre BlackCat 30 model was born from client requests for a catamaran of this size, according to McKeon, following the first model in the series, the BlackCat 50.

Look inside the BlackCat 30

According to the builder, which was founded by Australian Olympic yachtsman Mitch Booth, the new model will have “the same beautiful lines of its larger sister and features spectacular interior design by M2 Atelier.”

Accommodation on board will be for a total of eight guests in six cabins with a crew quarters large enough for a staff of four. Elsewhere, the main deck saloon has an “open and spacious feel” and is large enough to cater for entertaining and dinner parties.

Capable of cruising at 20 knots, with maximum speeds estimated to exceed 30 knots, the BlackCat 30 will have a low heel angle and stable platform, the builder said. Each design can also be customised to small details stipulated by the owner. McConaghy Boats meanwhile has been selected as the builder of choice for the BlackCat 30.

Speaking about the new model, designer Malcolm McKeon said: “There’s been space in the market for some time for a large catamaran design that can offer the luxury and quality of a superyacht this size and also provide this level of stability and high performance.”

Revealed in 2016, the BlackCat 50 concept boasts 350 square metres of accommodation space, a superyacht swimming pool on the foredeck and would becoe the largest single-structure carbon-fibre yacht in the world if built.
