Echo Yachts Presents Project Echo Humanitarian Support Vessel Concept

Australian yard Echo Yachts has teamed up with London superyacht design studio Bannenberg & Rowell to present a 50 metre humanitarian support vessel concept.

The Project Echo HSV Humanitarian Support Vessel is based on the same platform as the yard’s Project Echo ASY Adventure Support Vessel.

Described as a “stylish, extremely stable and capable craft”, the 50 metre yacht features exterior design penned by Bannenberg & Rowell and naval architecture by Incat Crowther Naval Architects.

The vessel is aimed at philanthropic clients looking to support humanitarian missions in remote or shallow water locations as well as undertaking their own cruising adventures.

Customisable spaces are found throughout alongside treatment and medical rooms, laboratories and medical supply storage spaces.

Elsewhere, the yacht is equipped with a 40 tonne cargo deadweight carrying capacity for multiple large tenders, water sports equipment and cargo. Tenders and water sports equipment can be retrieved using a 12 tonne knuckle boom crane.

Echo Yachts sales and marketing manager Chris Blackwell revealed the vessel is offered at a lower price that the ASY Adventure Support Yacht models.

The vessel is “very capable of launching and retrieving large watercraft and submersibles with its 12-tonne knuckle-boom crane," he said.

“Our pricing, our 100% customisable design philosophy and timely delivery are further improved due to the low Australian Dollar and our immediate new build project capacity."

Dickie Bannenberg added: “The catamaran platform offers stability, fuel efficient range and space – providing an ideal mother ship for adventure and humanitarian operations whenever the need might arise. It’s good looking and practical.”
