With the speed and seaworthiness of a much larger vessel, this design is a unique blend of hull forms,
construction methods, and onboard systems creating an exceptional platform for global exploration.
Designed to travel the world, from relaxing cruising, intrepid arctic exploration or open ocean transits, the
stabilised monohull explorer provides exceptional levels of comfort, safety, and speed.
Form and function
The trimaran configuration is key to this vessel. It provides outstanding powering efficiency, seakeeping ability
and comfort not possible with a monohull or catamaran. Bury Design’s experience in superyacht design and
marine oil and gas applications has enabled the development of a unique vessel for global exploration.
The hull configuration consists of a long, narrow, and deep centre hull containing propulsive machinery. The
dimensions of the outer hulls are tailored to provide initial stability and a low rate of roll and are engineered for
minimal resistance. The hull arrangement allows the vessel to operate in the open ocean comfortably at very
high cruising speeds for long distances, perfect for a globe spanning explorer.
The vessel layout provides a very large working deck area aft with a highly configurable forward accommodation
area. The low levels of vessel motion, both at sea and at rest, make this a good platform for helicopter
operations. The helicopter configuration includes a touch and go landing platform forward with tender storage
Guest accommodation features upper and lower lounges, with expansive views from all spaces. With crew and
service areas in the lower hull, the vessel has accommodation for 10 crew and 9 guests. The large aft deck area
provides operational flexibility, allowing for tenders, water toys or submarines to be stowed and launched safely
and easily. The aft deck is load rated with engineered hard patches to allow for specialised lifting equipment and
containerised hardware, facilitating serious research and exploration missions.
Propulsion is diesel-electric with 4 x CAT diesel driven generators, powering twin 1100kw electric motors driving
controllable pitch propellers. Construction is from unpainted aluminium
