BMT Nigel Gee Launches Radical Luxury Superyacht at Monaco Yacht Show

BMT Nigel Gee launched its latest innovative design, ‘Project L3’ at the Monaco Yacht Show. The bold design is based around delivering an extreme of high speed and high volume. The overall length of 85m allows for entertainment and living areas similar to land based architecture and includes some unique features such as the main accommodation opening straight onto the pool courtyard. The sundeck sports an open-air fire pit surrounded by generous loungers which give perfect viewing for the giant drop-down cinema screen. The large beam of the catamaran also allows for storage of an oversized tender including an offshore racing cat and a two-man seaplane. Once deployed, these can be moored against a number of fold-down/extendable beach decks giving easy access to the water.
