A giant motorized trimaran is clearly not something you see every day! Designer Anthony Glasson thought the same - and created the concept of another giant.
sources of inspiration
Designer Anthony Glasson leads M51 Concepts. Anthony has been designing yacht concepts for years, but recently he has done something out of the ordinary. From under his pen came the concept of a motor trimaran!
According to Glasson himself, while working on the concept, he unwittingly reproduced several key features of the starship Enterprise from the Star Trek film franchise in the design of his vessel. He did not attach any importance to this until he saw the final result of his work. At that moment, it dawned on Anthony that such a concept should see the light of day.
Adds Anthony: “The exterior design inspiration came only after the work was completed: I was watching the first season of the Star Trek series and subconsciously created a yacht that resembled the original Enterprise.” By the way, the trimaran was also named Enterprise.
Details of the layout and exterior of the Enterprise
Agree, it is unusual to see a fully motorized trimaran. But this is not just a whim of the designer for the sake of a spectacular appearance (although the “wrapper” is no less important here). Anthony wanted to achieve the widest possible width of the hulls and decks. That is why the choice fell on a trimaran-type design.
Also in the concept there is a quiet covered space between the buildings, which was called the “patio”. This peculiar cabin is completely enclosed and protected from the elements.
On the roof of this “courtyard” is a large skylight that will provide guests with enough natural light during daylight hours. By the way, you can get here with the help of an elevator. In the center there is a hot tub and a bar.
The upper deck contains the bridge, as well as the owner's office, one of the living rooms, a bar and a panoramic dining room. The main deck has everything you need to have a good time - a beach club, jacuzzi, sunbathing area, etc.
12 guests can be accommodated on board. For comfortable accommodation of guests there is a master cabin in the full beam of the trimaran, as well as seven full-fledged guest cabins.
Anthony Glasson positions the trimaran not as an exploratory, but rather an “adventure” trimaran. Although the Enterprise has a number of qualities similar to research yachts, it does not burden the owner or guests on a voluntary-compulsory basis to go to the cold regions of the planet in search of scientific discoveries.
The Enterprise is designed for long hauls with a total range of 5,000 miles. At the same time, there are many opportunities for entertainment and recreation on board. So, on board there will be a huge garage for a tender and toys. Above it is an impressive helipad.
However, the presence of entertainment does not make a trimaran of this magnitude a toy. It is quite suitable for sailing in high latitudes, and a powerful hybrid power plant will help with this. In other bonuses, with the help of modern technology, Glasson was able to achieve a reduction in fuel consumption on the 30% compared to a monohull of a similar size.
Enterprise will be made of aluminum. At the moment, it is not known whether someone will undertake the implementation of the project.
