Italian designer introduces yet another innovative a yacht catamaran called the ‘pagurus’ or the ‘crabmaran’ formed as a 25-meter long amphibious catamaran, the newly designed vessel uses solar power to make its way through water and land.
The yacht designed by Pierpaolo Lazzarini subdivides the living spaces in two side hulls, connected to each other through a bridge tower deck station. to stiffen and reinforce the main body, a bridge steel structure connects each side to the other. the twin steel hulls can be configured on each side with 2 to 3 bedrooms, a kitchen, and a toilet, accommodating up to 8 passengers, plus 4 crew members.
Sailing propulsion is achieved with dual stern drive propellers, coupled with twin 890hp diesel engines, capable to move the ‘pagurus’ to an estimated top speed of 24 knots.sailing propulsion is achieved with dual stern drive propellers, coupled with twin 890hp diesel engines, capable to move the ‘pagurus’ to an estimated top speed of 24 knots.
When the ‘pagurus’ reaches the land, the rotating cylinders lower towards the ground, transforming the catamaran into an amphibious vehicle able to move on sand or mud terrains. the central area works as a helm station with the possibility to load different vehicles through an incorporated crane platform, that connects to 4 electric winches.
