Marc Lombard boasts a 25 years experience in yacht design with many multihulls to his credit.  His design team has created the ML POWER 70, a motor yacht design catamaran away from the traditional trawler look. 

The ML Power 70' is a fast cruising catamaran (20/25 knots) actually being developed by the design office. The characteristics of this project may slightly change over time. A few shipyards are strongly interested in this project. 

The hulls will be built either by composite infusion, or in Aluminium (Alustar or Sealium), or in wood/epoxy, the Marc Lombard design having a great experience in this field. The superstructures will be in infused composite.

The exterior design is simple and innovative with as many integrated elements and refined materials as possible:
  • carbon handrail all aroung the yacht and on the flybdrige
  • fully integrated teak deck : transom, cockpit, foredeck and flybridge
  • "aerial" stairs to the flybridge (teak and carbon)
  • high quality sliding windows to the salon
  • integrated waterproof lateral doors
  • contemporary interior and exterior furniture design made in wood sandwich to increase performance
  • many comfort equipments (ac, top of the range sound system, ambiance lighting, wifi...)
Two versions are offered : "cruiser" (3 guests and 1 owner cabin, 4 crew members) and "lounge" specially designed for Asian clients wishing to buy a reception only yacht.

The ML POWER 70 is powered either with a shaft (2 x 620 hp up to 2 x 900 hp), or with a Volvo  900 hp IPS  (2 x 900 hp) with a maximum speed of 25 knots.

The CFD studies have been started. 

Here is a video of the the ML Power 70.
