Incat Crowther nnounced the launch of new super yacht, Quaranta. Developed by Curvelle and built in Turkey, Quaranta demonstrates many of the advantages of a catamaran platform as applied to a super yacht. As the vessel’s name suggests, the vessel offers comparable interior space to a 40 meter monohull yacht, but with lower power requirement, reducing capital and operating costs.


To deliver the project, Curvelle founder Luuk van Zanten assembled a team of experts, including builder Logos Marine and Lila–Lou of London, who designed the vessel’s striking interior and exterior. Incat Crowther contributed naval architectural services including hull form development, arrangement and propulsion engineering.


The vessel offers functionality and flexibility, with six large cabin spaces located on the main deck. Each of these spaces can be configured as twin or double staterooms, or combined with the adjacent spaces to create three large suites. Crew accommodation and service spaces are provided in the hull and a large lounge and dining space occupies the upper deck aft of the wheelhouse.


The vessel is powered by a pair of Caterpillar C32 Acert main engines, each producing 1417kW at 2,300rpm. The shaft line consists of ZF3050 gearboxes and a pair of fixed-pitch propellers. Incat Crowther has used its extensive experience to engineer a vessel that is optimized for efficient cruising and optimum range.
