The new brand from Monaco has designed an aluminium tri-deck power catamaran suitable for families and ocean cruising

Following a presentation in Monaco last March introducing the brand, Amasea Yachts has released further design details about its first 25-metre power catamaran, the Amasea 84.

The Amasea project is distinguished from other catamarans in its class in that it will be built of marine-grade 5083 aluminium instead of fibreglass, and laid out over three decks instead of two. This is to provide a robust, seaworthy, ocean-going platform for true lovers of the sea who want to explore the world in comfort and safety even in rough weather.

“CFD studies show that compared to a monohull, the catamaran configuration offers better hull efficiency and built-in stabilisation,” says Jack Wijnants, who set up Amasea Yachts in 2018 after he couldn’t find a production catamaran designed for world cruising. “Another advantage is that with a beam of nearly 11 metres, it provides much more interior and exterior volume.”

With exterior design and naval architecture by Dr Albert Nazarov, a specialist in high-speed catamarans, the Amasea 84 is designed for family use and long-distance passage-making without re-fuelling, with sufficient dry and cold storage to remain at sea for up to six weeks without re-provisioning.

“Having three decks instead of two allows for much more flexibility in terms of layout,” says Nazarov. “The master suite, for example, can be on the main or upper deck, and the yacht is designed with two galleys: one for guest use and a smaller one for the crew.”

The layout allows for outstanding flexibility. The standard layout provides for a large salon/dining room on the main deck of 63sqm, big enough to fit a lounge and dining area, and two forward cabins of 16.7sqm each. The guest galley on the same deck level is nearly 16sqm. Alternatively, clients can choose to have a single large master suite forward. The bridge deck can accommodate two VIP cabins of 20.5sqm and 17.5 sqm behind the bridge, or the upper deck can be used to house the master suite.

“The interior design is entirely up to the client,” says Jack Wijnants. “We are free to engage a designer of his or her choice. The renders that we created are only indications of what the interior could look like and they are truly impressive.” Amasea can also customise other features, such as the windows to make them larger, or lower bulwarks. The only thing that is fixed is the three-deck configuration and the exterior styling.

The crew accommodation is located inside the two hulls on the lower deck, along with the two engine compartments, laundry and twin garages for the tender and toys. The forward space in the hulls can be used for additional guest accommodation. In addition to the generous outside areas on the main and bridge aft, there is also a sundeck with exterior pilot station and an enormous lounging area on the main deck forward.

Jack Wijnants is planning to start building the first Amasea 84 at Amasea Yachts’ own shipyard in Turkey before the end of the year, with delivery scheduled in 2021. The first will take around 20 months to build, with subsequent hulls between 12-16 months. The finishing will take place in the Netherlands to the standard of quality Dutch yachts.

The Amasea 84 is estimated at a base price of €6.5 million.
