Bury Design's 60m Expedition Trimaran

First thoughts, she is sleek and stylish but designed for the open oceans and the exploration trips of a lifetime. Bury Design have worked closely with submarine manufacture Trition Submarines on this design to carefully tailor it to meet the requirements to store a range of Triton personal submarines. She will provide unmatched levels of performance in the support of small submarines for extended deep ocean operations, but will also be quite at home being used as a more general expedition yacht.

Paul Bury’s experience in superyacht design and marine oil and gas applications has enabled him development this unique expedition yacht that combines high efficiency, comfort and serviceability. The design will give you the space and stability of a catamaran with the ride comfort of a monohull, giving you the best of both worlds.

She consists of a long, narrow and deep centre hull containing all the propulsive machinery. The outer hulls are shorter, shallower and of much less volume. The dimensions of the outer hulls are tailored to provide initial stability and are optimised for minimal resistance. Her hull arrangement allows her to be configured and optimised for either high efficiency moderate speed operation or very high maximum speeds.

Her layout provides a very large working deck area aft with a customisable forward accommodation area. The aft deck is set to support submarine activities, including below decks stowage and dedicated workshop facilities of up to four manned submersibles. The subs are suitable for personal or tourist excursions, including the Triton 36000/3, capable of full ocean depth (FOD) dives to the bottom of the Mariana Trench.

She has a large helicopter hanger and landing pad forward, with the aft deck and upper deck also fully customisable for helicopter operations.
