Servo Yachts introduced the Martini 7.0, a 165ft catamaran featuring revolutionary technology that relieves passengers from seasickness.
Designed in collaboration with UK studio Shuttleworth Design, the Martini 7.0 incorporates revolutionary marine stabilization techniques that allow the yacht to glide more easily in the ocean, avoiding the types of movement that typically cause passengers to be seasick.
A variety of solutions have been explored and tested, including the Martini 6.0, a 150ft high speed catamaran yacht concept. The new 165ft catamaran is designed to maximize accommodation space and is the next generation in a series of smaller prototype ships ranging from 17ft to 45ft that have been developed and tested in the San Francisco Bay Area. .
The Martini 7.0 is the largest and most advanced cat in the series to date. It is made of carbon fibers and foam cores, which significantly reduces weight and provides increased durability. The multihull has an innovative electric suspension system that connects the yacht’s superstructure to two dynamic hulls, which adjust in real time to the height and angle of the waves. The revolutionary design results in less drag than traditional yachts, making her a remarkably efficient vessel that is not only safe and comfortable, but also faster in difficult conditions.
A combination of pneumatic and electric cylinders adjust in real time to keep the deck in a horizontal position to safely control and absorb sea-induced roll, pitch and lift motions. Suspension technology patented, which minimizes seasickness and crew exhaustion, and improves safety at all speeds, allows up to 12 feet of vertical displacement in each hull.
The resulting vessel can move at high speed through an ocean swell with virtually no movement in the suspension bridge where the crew and guests are located. In addition, the new design is said to cause less drag than traditional yachts, which means it is faster and more efficient than conventional competitors.
The luxurious interior can accommodate 10 guests and 11 crew members, spread over 4 levels. The main systems, engines, fuel and anchoring equipment are housed in the hulls, freeing up more space in the suspension bridge for accommodation. The external gangways around the closed helm station of the flybridge give the crew clear visibility for mooring and maneuvering. Aft of the helm station is an outdoor gym and spacious sunbathing area.
The owner’s suite encompasses the entire forward portion of the main deck and includes a private office, gym, and spectacular views through a large wrap-around window to the bow.
âWith the Martini 7.0, I think we’ve found a way to solve seasickness and dramatically improve the boating experience so that everyone can enjoy traveling the ocean. I am very happy that Servo Yachts continues to push the boundaries of marine technology and transform ocean travel â, said David Hall, Founder of Servo Yacht.
