Avant garde Monegasque-based yachtbuilder Wally has been commissioned to build the new Aeroyacht 110, a superfast 33.5-metre catamaran equipped with a personal exploration airplane. Representing the first model of a sleek, new range “embodying the ultimate high-performance, supremely styled world yacht,” the Aeroyacht 110 will be one of the largest composite multihulls in the world. As standard equipment the craft will come fitted with a two seat Icon A5 amphibian sports plane, launched and retrieved from a specially designed pod.
The plane is designed to be used for sightseeing, shuttling guests to and from the yacht, or in case of medical emergencies. Designed by Gregor Tarjan, founder and president of Aeroyacht Ltd., the yacht is expected to do 35 knots at full speed. Performance multihull specialists Morrelli & Melvin, multihull designers of world record catamarans such as Playstation and the US America’s Cup contender Stars and Stripes will handle the naval architecture. The first model is expected to hit the water in late 2011.
