The arrival on the market of multihull superyachts or “multiyachts” was the first major development, but they’re not the only ones! There are also Opens, Monospaces, Double-deckers (and now Tri-deckers), Open day-boats, sports yachts, adventurer-explorers, powercats and more. For me, these are the “catamarans of the second kind”, whose diversity is staggering. But I believe that in 2023, we’ve seen two even more stunning innovations.

At the opposite end of the spectrum, the Gunboat 72 lets you sail at the speed of the wind, like an ocean racer, on a luxurious flybridge that can accommodate for ten.
