Baikal Yachts Reveals Hybrid Catamaran Concept

The Russian organisation, Baikal Yachts Group has a unveiled a new 35-metre superyacht catamaran concept, that was designed in-house by Maxim Lodkin. On board, this fast-displacement superyacht will feature a spacious owner’s cabin on the second deck, spanning approximately 70 square metres, which includes a bedroom, a private office, bathroom and cloakrooms.

Looking out of the owner’s suite, you are greeted with a 180-degree view, creating a feeling of infinite space. In addition, there is a large owner’s saloon, equipped with large sofas, tables and a private bar for relaxation and entertainment. For additional all-fresco relaxation, sofas and lounging areas can also be found on the sundeck. The guest cabins located on the catamaran can be found in the main deck and in the hulls.

Tender and Jet Ski storage would be offered on the upper deck aft, while the crew quarters are suitable for a staff of up to ten people split across six cabins. Other key features include a foredeck spa pool and a superyacht sundeck just aft of the wheelhouse.

Sergey Gmyra, owner of Baikal Yachts Group, explained: “Considering a new trend towards catamarans, our company has decided to propose to the yachting world a concept enabling a shipyard to make quick adjustments depending on the market needs without introduction of significant changes in basic hulls.”

In addition, the new catamarans will be eco-friendly, and can easily be equipped with modern hybrid propulsion systems, with a large area of the roof over the flybridge available for solar panel installation. These solar panels will feed diesel-electric plants of differing capacities, which, in combination with her fast displacement hull, will give a considerable fuel saving at higher speeds for a vessel of her size, according to the shipyard.
