Echo Yachts has released the first renderings of two new build projects currently under construction at the company’s Henderson facility. Both projects have been commissioned by the same experienced owner. The 84m trimaran superyacht is due in 2017 with its 46m support catamaran scheduled to beat it to water in the first quarter of 2016. Echo Yacht’s reports that both projects are on schedule.

46m shadow vessel

Commissioned as a support vessel for the 84m mother ship, this catamaran has been designed by the New Zealand based LOMOcean to be strong and capable of housing a fleet of 11 watercraft – including a 12m catamaran – in a number of environments. Built in fiberglass using vacuum infusion processes the 46m support vessel will, Echo Yachts believe, showcase a commitment to research & development, build efficiency, and quality. The addition of high tech laminates to the fiberglass hull will aid a high strength to weight ratio.

84m trimaran

The 84m superyacht, the latest in a succession of superyachts built for the experienced owner, will be a culmination of his many years of experience. Designed by Sam Sorgiovanni, this yacht will not only be the biggest superyacht ever built in Australia, but also the largest tri-hulled superyacht ever built. Large interior volume will provide ample living space for her 12-guest capacity.
