A Great Idea, The 33.70m Curvelle 'Quaranta'

Curvelle Yachts have come up with a fresh and great approach for owners to share Megayachts, using a syndicate style of ownership. Their first 33.70m (110ft) hull of a series is currently in build in Tuzla Turkey and will be ready for launch at the end of this year. The Quaranta as she will be called will be a catamaran which will give you more space, stability, performance and will be more environmentally friendly than your traditional monohull. Everything about quaranta has be carefully thought out to maximize internal volume and deck space.

Quaranta has four decks and a 9 meter beam. This is two meters wider on deck than what would be found on a monohull of similar size. The upper sun deck is large with space for everyone to relax, be it in the forward jacuzzi that is surrounded by sun cushions, the wet bar located on the port side, the dining area located aft under the radar and bimini roof or just soaking up the sun on the sunbeds.

The next deck down is the saloon deck and entertaining deck. The wheelhouse is located forward and behind is the saloon with seating areas, bar, and a large dining table aft for up to 12 guests. There is more seating areas out on the saloon aft deck for guest to enjoy. The main deck is where all the guest accommodation is located with over 20 different layout configurations that can be changed at a moments notice depending on the owners wishes. Curvelle have designed the cabins to be spacious and with a huge window that measures 2.75m x 0.95m. This window lets natural light enter to give a light a airy feeling, and provides fantastic views. At the Antibes Yacht Show Curvelle had a sample window of exact size on the wall and it is quite astonishing seeing the sheer size, you can just imagine waking up on anchor and looking out at a deserted tropical island.

She will be able to accommodate up to 12 guests in her 6 cabins that can be changed from a double bed set up to a single bed set up. The crew quarters are located on the lower decks in the two hulls. One great feature is the 6 meter platform on the aft deck that can be lowered to form a beach club and when raised it can be used for tender, large car or submarine storage.

Curvelle has the goal to allow owners to own a Megayacht at a reasonable price, and further down the line have a series of these wonderful yachts around the world so that owners can have the luxury of seeing the world aboard their yacht with out the time consuming issue of yacht delivery.
