Bury Design reveals 57m trimaran concept Global Explorer

30 September 2021• Written by Tom McGhie

Australian studio Bury Design has revealed a 57 metre trimaran concept named Global Explorer.

The trimaran’s hull configuration consists of three aluminium hulls; a central narrow and deep centre hull, which incorporates the propulsion package, and two outer hulls.

The concept is constructed in aluminium

This configuration provides safe seakeeping with a “low rate of roll” and “minimal resistance”.

The Global Explorer’s diesel-electric propulsion system consists of four CAT engines and twin 1100kw electric motors for a top speed of 22 knots. A range of 6,000 nautical miles is possible at a cruising speed of 18 knots.

Four CAT engines give a range of 6,000nm

“With the speed and seaworthiness of a much larger vessel, this design is a unique blend of hull forms,” said designer Paul Bury.

The concept, he said, is “designed to travel the world, from relaxing cruising, intrepid arctic exploration or open ocean transits.”

The design features three hulls

Elsewhere, a touch-and-go helipad can be integrated on the yacht’s large aft deck, alongside storage for submarines, tenders and water toys.

The concept was designed to facilitate research explorations, with the aft deck including engineered hard patches to allow for specialised lifting equipment.

Accommodation on board is for a maximum of ten guests and a crew of nine. The guest areas also include upper and lower lounges with far reaching ocean views.
