Turkish shipyard VisionF Yachts has signed an order for its largest model to date, a 30.5-metre VisionF 100 catamaran.
Unlike the shipyard's previous aluminium VisionF 80 models, the new flagship will be built with a kevlar composite structure for a “high strength-to-weight ratio," according to the yard. Construction is expected to start soon with delivery slated for 2025.
The flybridge catamaran shares the same in-house design DNA and many of the features of its smaller siblings and will offer multiple accommodation and layout options.
The model will have a 1.2-metre draught paired with a beam of 12 metres, allowing for access to shallow waters and offering guests ample onboard space.
The main deck offers a 100-square-metre saloon with full-height, sliding glass doors port and starboard saloon that lead to the large foredeck terrace. Owners have the option of a large glass-bottomed 2.4-metre Jacuzzi while the master suite can be positioned on the lower deck or the main deck forward with private access to the foredeck.
A secondary sun lounge is offered on a 116-square-metre sundeck alongside sofas, sunbeds, a dining table and a bar unit. Meanwhile, the aft cockpit provides shaded al fresco dining with a flexible lounging arrangement where the backrest can be shifted to face the table or a folding terrace suspended over the stern.
Accommodation can be configured for as many as six en suite guest cabins, depending on the requirements and preferences of each owner, while up to three crew cabins can be reached via separate crew access.
The VisionF 100 propulsion system comprises four Volvo Penta IPS engines for a maximum speed of 22 knots. The shipyard confirmed that a second VisionF 100 unit will follow shortly.
Other projects underway at the Turkish shipyard include four Silent VisionF 82 models, a collaboration with hybrid catamaran specialist Silent Yachts, as well as a Silent 120 Explorer.
