Infiniti 60: Concept Yachts presents new 18m foil-assisted catamaran

30 August 2023 • Written by Katia Damborsky

British yachtbuilders Concept Yachts and Infiniti Yachts have teamed up to introduce a new 18.3-metre multihull model to the market. Named Infiniti 60 Powercat, the yacht has sporty coupé styling and foiling technology that aims to reduce fuel consumption by 35 per cent. 

The yacht will be built in Southampton and will be the bigger sister of past Infiniti 36 and Infiniti 52 models, building on the successful existing collaboration between Concept Yachts and Infiniti Yachts. 

The yacht is designed for use as either a superyacht tender, a fishing vessel or as a compact liveaboard, with plenty of scope for customisation and the option to include two, three or four cabins. There are two main formats available; the standard is the Coupé, while there is also a Grand Tourer Flybridge version.

Design Unlimited has been brought in to style the yacht, and working together with Infiniti Yachts and Concept Yachts, has given the yacht a relatively modest beam of six metres which allows the yacht to berth in conventional slips. The catamaran is also "beachable", meaning it can transition from sea to land with ease.

Efficiency has been a top priority in the yacht's design, and the yacht has been built in resin-infused carbon fibre with multiple propulsion options available, including petrol, diesel and electric.

The retractable DSS foil comes as standard, and Gordon Kay, founder of Infiniti Yachts, was integral to developing the DSS that is fitted on the Baltic 142 foiling yacht Canova

The Infiniti 60 comes in a Grand Tourer edition as well as the standard Coupé

Between them, Concept Yachts and Infiniti Yachts have over two decades of experience in the superyacht sector. 

Denison Yachting will also be working alongside Concept Yachts as its sales and marketing partner.
