The Australian superyacht builder is creating a line of cutting-edge, high performance motor yachts

Australian superyacht builder Echo Yachts and renowned multihull design specialists One2Three Naval Architects have teamed up again to launch a new range of cutting-edge, active-foiling Trimaran Sports Motoryachts, comprising 28m, 30m, 38m & 40m models.

Trimarans offer significant advantages over traditional monohulls in terms of hydrodynamic efficiency, fuel and emissions reductions, inherent stability, ride comfort and lower incidence of sea-sickness. Building on the success of their international award winning 84m White Rabbit trimaran superyacht and its class-leading powering and fuel efficiency credentials, the team is now offering innovative solutions to the 25-50m market segment.

The flagship models of the range TSY38 and TSY40 are high performance aluminium sports yachts, capable of 32 and 40 knots respectively. TSY38 features a twin-engine twin-screw propulsion package and TSY40 features a premium triple engine triple water jet propulsion upgrade. Both models provide luxurious accommodation for eight guests and eight crew with helicopter-landing capability.

Combined with One2Three’s proven foiling multihull technology demonstrated with M/Y Andiamo, Naiad Dynamics latest active-foiling ride control system ensure these innovative craft offer extremely smooth high-speed cruising and a shallow draft of less than 1.6m for unrestricted lagoon and waterways access.

All models in the range deliver ultra-modern styling and expansive beam with the trimaran hull form. Added to inherent trimaran stability and high-speed ride comfort the 38m and 40m designs provide for large interior and exterior guest areas for spacious onboard living and entertaining.
