Back to my blog, sorry for the delay between the last post and this new one, I was away busy at the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show.

Thanks to Gildas Plessis for the information and the images for this post. Studio 3 is an architect and design office created by Gildas Plessis and two associates Yan Dilassier and Xavier Fay. With 5 designers aboard and powerful dedicated softwares the team is able to master the most demanding projects, from production yachts to superyachts and of course luxury catamarans. They have done superstructure design work for Oceanco and Vegayachts.

Let me introduce three of their catamarans designs.

ETOILE MAGIQUE (above) is a 25 meters charter catamaran launched in 2005. Built in composite in Saint Malo by the Etoile Océane shipyard, it is available for charter through Etoile Marine Charter. It features 8 doubles cabines with their own head and a huge 55 sqm cockpit. Studio 3 is actually design a luxury version of this catamaran.

DREAM OF DUBAI, is a 49 meters in aluminium, being developped right now by the design team for a luxury charter company. A double decker with a lot of space available, restaurants and accomodations are separated for privacy and feature a great view on the sea. No doubt with such a name this project will be available for cruises in the DUBAI area.

GREYHOUND, 22 meter, in composite with dagger-boards, carbon rotating wing mast, my favorite, a very innovative and agressive design.

This fast catamaran features two independent hulls. In the hulls you have 3 double cabins and one single all with their own heads. On the platform, one side hosts a dining room and the other an owner suite both with balconies on the sea !!.

The interior has been designed by Olivier Gossart a French Designer with offices in Paris. Check his website I really like his hotels and restaurants designs.

Good luck to this design team and thanks again for the information.

If you are a designer, a design team or a luxury catamaran builder. Do not hesitate to send me your information so I can post it on my blog.
