Blue Coast Yachts Reveals Its New Concept Trimaran

Blue Coast Yachts, a French shipbuilder that specializes in designing and constructing multihull carbon-fiber yachts, has introduced its new 197-foot concept, the BCY 60m. The yacht’s trimaran hull provides excellent stability and increases fuel efficiency by reducing drag during motion. The hybrid propulsion system, which pairs two retractable electric motors with two diesel-powered MTU engines, also reduces fuel consumption. When powered entirely by its diesel engines, the yacht is able to reach speeds in excess of 30 knots; when cruising at a more modest 11 knots, the boat is sufficiently fuel efficient for transatlantic crossings. The yacht can also operate entirely under electric power, allowing it to run silently for six hours at 9 knots.

Each yacht’s interior is highly customizable and can be configured to accommodate as many as 12 guests and eight crew. The full-beam owner’s suite is located forward on the main deck and is equipped with an en suite bathroom, a walk-in closet, and wraparound windows providing panoramic views. The yacht’s flybridge includes a small indoor seating area and an outdoor hot tub aft. Though construction of the first BCY 60m has not yet started, work on two 174-foot variations of the trimaran has already begun, with deliveries expected next summer. (www.blue-coast-yachts.com)
