The team behind BlackCat Superyachts, established last year, knew it could fill a market void. Catamaran buyers had few choices in the megayacht market, after all. What the team didn’t expect, however, was just how many potential buyers would be interested. That drove the decision to create the BlackCat 35, a 115-foot (35-meter) multihull.
Like the first BlackCat offering, the BlackCat 50, the BlackCat 35 comes from the drawing boards of Malcolm McKeon Yacht Design. Volume-wise, according to the team, she rivals that of a monohull megayacht in the 131- to 148-foot (40- to 45-meter) range. Furthermore, the team adds, the cost of construction, in carbon fiber, comes in lower than that of a monohull in that size range. BlackCat Superyachts has partnered with Baltic Yachts for the build, due to its expertise in carbon fiber.
That lightweight construction should enable spirited speeds. The BlackCat 35 will reportedly cruise at 20 knots and top out at 32 knots. All the while, the multihull platform will keep her more comfortable and stable in certain seas compared to a monohull.
With a beam of 45’9” (14 meters), the megayacht provides abundant room to relax and entertain. The full effect of that beam will surely be felt on the main deck. And not just inside. Take a look at the aft deck of the BlackCat 35 in the image at top, and you can imagine the sensation of space. Come nighttime, six staterooms can accommodate an owner’s party of eight, while two cabins cater to four crewmembers. Clients can work with M2 Atelier to tailor the looks to their wishes. The same studio is handling interior design for the BlackCat 50.
