SHUTTLEWORTH DESIGN – 32M TRIMARAN

06/10/2016

SHUTTLEWORTH DESIGN – 32M TRIMARAN

While Astrada has already covered more than 14,000 miles and demonstrated the comfort of the wave-piercing trimaran formula, achieving average speeds of 17 knots in rough seas and up to 50 knots of wind, the Isle of Wight-based office is presenting this project for a 32-meter oceanic exploration trimaran.

On the drawing board, we find the accommodation for 6 guests and 2 crew from a 20-meter monohull, but the comparison stops there. The stowage volumes provided by the length and above all the outriggers, is infinitely superior, for storing various exploration kit, such as kayaks, motorbikes, and microlights. The out-of-the-ordinary seakeeping qualities, the total absence of rolling, the easy passage through the waves are all helped by flexible propulsion. An 1150 hp Caterpillar gives a top speed of 23 knots and a range of over 6,000 miles at 12 knots. For maneuvers, 2 x 110 hp engines are fitted in the hulls, to serve as auxiliary engines at slow speeds. The looks are of course the icing on the cake.
