Warwick Yacht Design W43m Powercat

by admin

The W43m Power catamaran is the latest thinking from the Warwick Yacht Design studio for a compact entertainment centre with a multipurpose 95 sqm helicopter deck uninhibited by navigation towers / roof structures and ideally suited to a EC 120b Eurocopter. Once the chopper is safely on deck the roof rises up to allow access to the other lower decks via stairs or lift.

The upper deck provides for the 4 guest suites with glazing opening onto balconies and a large passageway to central stairs forward down to main deck. The upper aft deck caters for a kiosk type bar arrangement with Jacuzzi and sunbeds, the water from the Jacuzzi  forms a waterfall down to the main deck pool with stairs both sides down to the main deck pool area.

The main deck features lounging to port with rotating seating to optimise view, a generous central passageway/gallery and dining to starboard, moving aft through curved sliding glazing to twin bars and infinity type pool, twin stairs down to the stern platforms with transformer bathing platforms each side.

The owner has his stateroom forward on the main deck which occupies a generous 126 sqm incorporating an atrium area forward in the nacelle with sliding roof and forward viewing.

The W43 has an overall length of 43m, beam of 15.5m and ½ ship displacement of 335,000 kg. Power is a pair of MTU 12V 4000 M70, which will freturn a maximum speed of 18 knots and cruise speed of 12 knots. Range is 4,000 nm @ 12 Knots.
