Echo Yachts Reveals 31 Metre Catamaran Concept SP30

2020-10-30By Miranda Blazeby

Australian multihull specialist Echo Yachts has teamed up with Misha Merzliakov Yacht Design to present a 31-metre fully customisable catamaran yacht concept.

Unveiled during the 2020 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, the 31-metre SP30 has been added to Echo’s “Design Collection”.

The yacht is fully customisable in both arrangement and specification and features an exterior characterised by “masculine automotive exterior styling cues”.

Elsewhere, the concept features a reverse bow and wide aft deck for storing toys and tenders.

Also aft, a hydraulically lowering swim platform can be used to launch and retrieve the tender as well as delivering guests safely into the water for swimming, diving and other water sports.

Varying accommodation configurations are available inside the sub-500GT interior spanning five to six guest cabins for a total of 12 guests. The master cabins will sit on the main deck while the remaining guest cabins will be found on the lower deck.

Elsewhere, the wide 13.3 metre beam provides spacious living areas inside. A “deliberately casual elegant interior” combined with “clever ambient lighting” will result in “a warm and welcoming atmosphere on board”, the yard said.

The SP30 concept will benefit from the natural stability and shallow draft provided by the catamaran hull form and will boast a top speed of 20 knots and cruising speed of 15 knots.
