New 71m catamaran superyacht concept Manifesto by VPLP

New 71m catamaran superyacht concept Manifesto by VPLP

French-based naval architects and designers VPLP Design has unveiled its vision of 'Manifesto', a 71.3-metre aluminium catamaran concept motor yacht.

VPLP is best known for designing high-speed sailing catamarans that race across oceans – the VPLP trimaran yacht Banque Populaire VII set the new Mediterranean solo crossing record, for instance – making the superyacht Mainfesto concept a departure for the design house. VPLP also designed the VPLP 100 maxi catamaran sailing superyacht, launched by French builder JFA.

A flybridge with lounge area tops a two deck superstructure, while the main deck includes a large swimming pool and lounge area aft, with steps leading down to twin bathing platforms located at the rear of each hull. Forward is a large recreational area which doubles as a helicopter landing deck. An owner’s suite, two VIP cabins, and three guest cabins provide accommodation for 12 people, with separate accommodation for the yacht’s crew of 18.

The elegantly muted styling and ultra-open layout both externally and internally emphasises space and light, while each area of the yacht is designed to offer privacy and conviviality. An internal garage houses a variety of large tenders, sailing boats, and a submarine, and a full deck is reserved for technical areas for easy external access, maintenance and reliability.

The catamaran design with its beam of 22 metres provides high stability, while different propulsion modes give Manifesto an extended range of around 6,000 nautical miles and low running costs ideally suited for ocean crossings, and its shallow draught of less than three metres is enough to enter small harbours.
