World’s fastest superyacht concept by Barracuda Yacht Design

Share:

The Barracuda Yacht Design studio has presented its latest concept, aiming to break the record for the fastest superyacht in the world. The concept, a 33.53-metre planing yacht, has been developed during the past three years.
Both the hull and the superstructure were designed to be built from pre-preg carbon fibre to keep the weight as low as possible, while the custom deck hardware is to be in titanium.
The yacht will be powered by a diesel propulsion system, instead of gas turbines usually favoured by other super-fast yachts in order to cut down on maintenance.
When in mono-hull mode, this yacht is expected to be able to reach a speed of  70 knots. The current world record for speed for a superyacht is 70.1 knots, held by the 41.4-metre Izar yacht Foners: a pair of hydrofoils will allow the new concept to exceed such a record with an expected top speed of 75 knots.
Interior comfort has also been taken care of: the yacht will feature all the amenities usually found on a luxury flybridge yacht, such as a generous sundeck and a sheltered cockpit. The vessel will comfortably accommodate up to eight guests and a crew of four.
Íñigo Toledo of Barracuda Yacht Design estimates that the entire project could be completed in 24 months, adding: “We did not find a single yard which could do everything together, so there is going to be plenty of coordination needed.”
