SPIRIT 35 - NEW ZEALAND YACHTS


Eye catching Yacht



Special thanks to Roger who left a message on my blog and is a fan of wave piercer.

New Zealand Yachts is a shipyard located guess where specialized in designing and building Wavepiercer Yachts. They have also done recenlty the refit of BELLA DONA and DOUCE FRANCE the world largest sailing catamaran.


New Zealand Yachts has developped a line of Wave Piercer Catamaran Yachts from 25 to 50 meters.



They see 4 main advantages in this type of yachts :
  1. Environementally sound : 40 % lower fuel consumption than a monohulls and hull shape specially designed to protect corals reefs and have less influence on the sea environment.
  2. An amazing stability : slamming is really reduced. The air trapsact as cushion and smooth the ride even at high speeds in a 4 meter sea.
  3. Increased Real Estate : 25 % more interior and exterior space compare to a monohull
  4. Style : I have to admit that the Ken Freivokh (Maltese Falcon Designer) exterior design is quite nice for a motor yacht which I am not always a fan off.
Great Bathing Plaform - goes up while cruising
