25m concept sports motor yacht

Andrew Trujillo Design has recently developed a new concept 25m wooden motor yacht. The yacht has been designed to be produced by a cold moulding process, whereby veneers of wood are laid out at angles to each other in combination with an epoxy resin. The process is not dissimilar to that used in the making of more conventional high performance composite yachts.

The obvious advantages of this method are that the result shows off the natural beauty of the wood (if using a clear gelcoat finish) and the process is arguably more environmentally friendly than those used in more conventional high performance composites or even GRP (glass reinforced plastic).

The moulds used would be very similar, so the yacht could be made in variants of GRP or wood if required. The 25m ‘Sabre’ concept has been developed by Andrew Trujillo at his studio in the UK.

The interior layout is relatively conventional; the main deck has a comfortable indoor lounge area and a helm position with a clean and uncluttered instrument panel. The lower deck has the galley and guest cabins plus the master cabin in the bow. The guest cabins comprise two twin cabins and a double, however one of the twin cabins can serve as accommodation to crew, if required.

The other advantages of using this process selected is that the material performs very well, it is lightweight and very strong.

The design is relatively simple and uncluttered, making gentle references to classic wooden boats, but with a modern interpretation.
