Seasoned Naval Architect Unveils Conceptual Idea Behind the Largest Sailing Catamaran in the World

Kicking off the start of his own standalone company; SedlmayerAssociates PTY Ltd., naval architect, Albert Sedlmayer, has unveiled an interesting concept.

Seeking to quickly make an impact within the superyacht industry, he has come up with the idea of new Spectrum a new 52 metre catamaran design.
Set to be the largest sailing catamaran in the world, when built. Slender, low-resistant hulls deliver efficient speed via the MTU 16V 2000 M84 1,630 KW engines, while the generous overall beam provides abundant living space and stability with ample power to carry sail.

That beam, at 22.2-metres, gives plenty of scope for multiple areas to lounge, eat and relax in.
A sail area of 1,700m2 means 20 knots is achievable in favourable conditions under sail or power.

Classic lines rule on the main deck with the aft superstructure sides draping around accommodation features.

On the upper deck, the superstructure pulls attention from formal outer lines with a dramatic cut back meaning glimpses of interior shout for the eyes‘ attention.
With accommodation for owners, eight guests and eight crew, the yacht is designed with designated crew corridors to allow easy, discrete service to guests.

The  guest suites are complete with walk in robes and bathrooms, writing desks, lounge chairs and weathertight seadoor access to sidedecks.
An indoor gym sits forward of the guest suites, to port, while a boardroom to starboard means trips onboard need not be interrupted when business demands attention.

A library and several beach clubs are just some of the multitude of features which complete the design.
With more than 40 years experience in the naval architecture and marine design sector, and an enviable design portfolio which includes 22-metre catamaran Stars and Stripes and 18-metre Pride of Airlie (formerly Pride of Auckland) Sedlmayer’s designs show crucial insight into the functionality and onboard experience of sailing and power catamarans. 
The concept will be presented at the Sanctuary Cove Boat Show in May where the designer will be on hand in the Superyacht Pavilion to discuss the benefits of the design with media and show visitors
