Australian yard Echo Yachts has unveiled two new 27 metre catamaran yacht and shadow vessel models ahead of the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show next week.
The yard has added the duo to its recently launched “Design Collection” and revealed that development into larger models is also under works.
Exterior and layout design of both the yacht and support vessel has been completed by Misha Merzliakov Yacht Design. The yachts are described as sporting a “chiselled modern styling aesthetic” with extensive glass surfaces on the superstructure.
The catamaran yacht features a 53 square metre beach club and aft entertaining space. A variety of water toys, including multiple Jet Skis, Sea Bobs and tenders are stored on the aft deck. Once deployed, the central platform can be lowered down, transforming the stern into a “waterfront retreat”, the yard said.
The upper decks meanwhile have been dedicated to living and entertaining while the majority of the guest cabins sit on the lower deck. The master cabin measures more than 50 square metres and includes an optional private “owner’s den” located in the port hull.
The raised pilothouse design provides full walkaround decks with far reaching ocean views.
The shadow vessel meanwhile is equipped with a helipad, decompression chamber, gym, additional crew accommodation and guest cabins. It has been specifically designed to have a simple layout and design.
Both 27 metre models would have an estimated build time of 18 months, the yard said.
The presentation of the new catamaran models comes during a busy period for Echo Yachts, which has also unveiled plans for a range of customisable explorers and a trimaran sports yacht range.
