Design Unlimited reveals MC155 trimaran concept

British studio Design Unlimited has released details of its latest concept, which has been developed in collaboration with Australian yard McConaghy Yachts and legendary naval architect German Frers.

Dubbed the MC155, this 46.8 metre trimaran would be built to LY3 and MLC regulations. Tank testing has taken place in Potsdam, Germany and the studio adds that the project is now ready to go into production.

All aspects of the naval architecture and exterior styling were developed by Frers, with Design Unlimited providing the interior decor. Accommodation is for up to eight guests in four cabins, while the crew quarters allow for a staff of up to six people.

Preliminary tests show that this design can deliver the performance and efficiency of a 23 metre monohull, with a top speed of 24 knots and a maximum range of 2,500 nautical miles at 14 knots.

Key features include a side-loading tender garage and a large sheltered aft deck, complete with bar area, infinity pool and two staircases leading down to the large swim platform, which provides easy access to the sea.

Moving inside and the master suite takes over the entire upper deck with an en-suite bathroom, walk-in wardrobes and private superyacht gym. What’s more, the private aft deck includes enough room for a touch-and-go helipad.

On the main deck, the saloon and dining area make good use of the MC155’s 11.3 metre beam with room for 12 guests to enjoy a meal around a circular table. This open-plan layout that creates a seamless flow between these two areas and the aft deck. In terms of decor, Design Unlimited has focussed on lightweight materials working with a clean, modern colour palette.

Should it be built, MC155 would be the largest project from the Australian yard to date, easily eclipsing the 42.5 metre Adastra, which hit the water back in 2012.
