Pi Superyachts reveals trimaran concept Dragonship 25
by Chris Jefferies
Pi Superyachts has revealed its latest concept, a 25 metre trimaran that is available in both sailing yacht and motor yacht guises. Named the Dragonship 25, this striking multihull design is the follow-up to the 80 metre concept that the company revealed back in 2014.
Pi Superyachts adds that the Dragonship 25 would be built to RINA standards with an aluminium hull and superstructure, while the broad 15.5 metre beam allows for 540 square metres of internal space.
Accommodation is for up to 16 guests and eight crewmembers, and key external features include a pair of foredeck seating areas and the flybridge, which comes complete with a superyacht spa pool and a hardtop bimini.
The main deck is designed around a large central reception area, with an adjacent bar, dining area and superyacht gym. Tender storage is provided in the outboard hulls, both of which feature their own passarelle.
In its motor yacht guise, the Dragonship 25 would be fitted with twin 600hp Cummins engines, drawing on a total fuel capacity of 4,000 litres for a maximum cruising range of 3,000 nautical miles.
Those looking for a more eco-friendly experience can opt for the Eco-Lux version (pictured above), which uses a fixed wing system, similar to the America’s Cup racing catamarans.
Pi Superyachts explains that the Autosail system has been developed by Jack Manners-Spencer to operate without any running rigging and features a fully rotatable carbon fibre mast.
A third option has also been designed, with a traditional fore and aft cutter rig and an aluminium mast. Pi Superyachts estimates that prices for the Dragonship 25 would start at around €5.5 million.
