After so many years of effort in designing boats for serial production, I felt the desire to design a large boat, without the obligation of the costs and times of serial production.
But where do we start? As always, from a quick sketch on a messed up sheet that I always keep close to the computer, the idea was then elaborated to fix general dimensions and layout. For my professional nature I am unable to sell only “emotions” to make a good impression with the client, only to have to modify the project because it is difficult to implement, so even if it is a free project it must be feasible and serious as a setting, I have had confirmation from Micad of my friend Amedeo Migali , when I asked for advice on technical aspects and on the engine to be adopted.
Normally during projects I identify with the client and wonder how I would like to live on board. In this case the priority seemed to me to take advantage of the more than fifty meters long and twenty wide to caress the sea at any time, with exteriors that almost touch it at the stern and allow you to always perceive it, even inside with large windows. full height. The owner has at his disposal a balcony and a Jacuzzi in addition to a considerable internal space. The bow deck offers absolute privacy during stops in port, or to enjoy the breeze while sailing.
The Maxi Cat has begun to take shape and the first layout is aimed at a customer with a sporty nature, with four guest cabins and an immense multi-function saloon, the outdoor spaces offer both aft and bow an engaging proximity to the sea. At the stern we find an area almost in contact with the water which, thanks to the central platform adjustable on three levels, becomes from time to time housing for tenders or helipad, solarium or hauling for tender and swimming pool in the sea in safety.
We have proposed different layouts, and also thought of a version with a third deck, in this case for the exclusive use of the owner, the guest cabins can become six, the crew of sixteen sailors plus the captain.
For the engine, the first hypothesis was hydrogen, with production on board with electrolyzers controlled by solar panels, existing green technology but to be verified, for the immediate future you can opt for the solution recommended by Micad : two MAN 2000 engines per hull one of which it is hybrid.
It should be built in composite or aluminum with carbon superstructures, depending on the yard.
We are ready
