Design Unlimited announced its collaboration with BMT Nigel Gee by presenting an original 40-metre motor cat. The basic model has a top speed of 20 knots and a range of 2,600 miles. However, this can be boosted to 32 knots or 41 knots in versions sporting water jet and gas turbine propulsion.
It was decided to keep the maximum beam relatively conservative (11.8 metres) to facilitate berthing and manoeuvring, and there are three decks. The crew are housed in one hull while there are two ample VIPs, which can convert to a single large suite, in the other. Up on the main deck, there are two further cabins and a gym with terrace. The saloon takes up the stern section and is linked to the al fresco cockpit. The owner’s suite is above and there is a bar and pool for guests too.
