Hull completed on new Curvelle flagship
Curvelle announces the completion of the hull of Quaranta, in close
cooperation with Logos Marine as principal build contractor. The flagship
and first vessel of the new Curvelle
family, on completion she will, according to Curvelle be 'the largest carbon composite power catamaran in
The vessel is four years in the making, with Lila Lou and Incat Crowther collaborating on the interior and exterior styling as specialist catamaran naval
architects. Due to a
flexible layout, instigated by Luuk V. van Zanten, the main driver behind the
project, the vessel's six double cabins can be converted into three VIP suites, six
twins, doubles or any combination of these, while still comfortably topping crew
space requirements in compliance with strict new crew accommodation regulations.
To assure optimal panorama views, all guest cabins are located on the main deck
and fitted with huge 2.5m x 0.9m windows, accommodating a company of up to
twelve guests. RINA has certified Quaranta with
their unrestricted range-classification for commercial yachts and as a third
edition MCA. With an LOA of 33.7m and beam of 9m, she will be an ocean-going catamaran
with the interior space equivalent of a 40m monohull vessel, due to her four
deck layout, and her two metres of extra beam.
Van Zanten comments: “With her
transatlantic range and a cruising speed of 22 knots, the Curvelle quaranta will be on the
market at a highly competitive introductory price, staying well below 10 million
Euros”. According to Curvelle this means quaranta approximately halves the common price of a
monohull vessel, similar in volume and performance.
With construction solely based on in-house funding, the yacht is currently in full
production in Tuzla, Istanbul, with a delivery set for November 2012.
