bluegame’s first multihull motor yacht emerges as catamaran with garage for tender boat

Bluegame’s unprecedented BGM75 two-hulled motor yacht

 

Bluegame, a San Lorenzo brand, makes its debut at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2023 with its first-ever motor yacht BGM75 which features two hulls and a garage for its tender boat. The horizontal surfaces between the two hulls are connected using a single volume, creating the illusion of a monohull. Bluegame states that this layout is not feasible on traditional catamarans, making the BGM75 a pioneer for a two-hulled motor yacht of its kind.

 

Unlike regular catamarans, which often have a boxy shape with widely spaced hulls, the BGM75 is designed to be sleeker. It can be compared to a normal yacht with an additional second hull. This design creates a single, larger space between the two hulls, similar to what can be found on a single-hulled yacht. Thanks to this approach, the BGM75 can offer spacious areas, including an owner’s cabin that spans the entire width of the boat.

An owner’s cabin may not be feasible on regular catamarans because their hulls are too far apart. The space between the two hulls that Bluegame went for, which is often empty on traditional catamarans, is utilized on the BGM75 to conceal an automated garage where the user can store a smaller boat that can be lowered into the water whenever needed. Since it is not as wide as most catamarans for its length, the BGM75 can be docked in spaces meant for regular single-hulled boats rather than requiring the larger berths reserved for super-sized yachts.

 

It took Bluegame approximately three years of testing and design processes before bringing the BGM75 to life, as the design and realization of the motor yacht required significantly more time and resources than a traditional model. During the production process of the catamaran, Bluegame reduced its length-to-width ratio to enable the BGM75 to be moored between monohull boats rather than between much larger superyachts. The efficient hull is designed by Philippe Briand, a world-renowned expert in the design of high-performance hulls.

Piero Lissoni of Lissoni & Partners and Bernardo Zuccon of Zuccon International Project joined forces to design the exterior and interior of Bluegame’s BGM75. The pronounced, almost singular, and distinctive lines and palettes of the exterior allude to the spacious interior of the motor yacht, concealing areas and materials that have been selectively chosen and refined to suit the catamaran’s maximized space.

 

At the entrance, slabs of wood dot the platform, and tinted windows and doors conceal the interiors while creating a synchronously designed effect. Stairs lead up to the open-air upper deck where passengers can take in the landscape, and cabins inside the motor yacht are furnished with neutral elements alongside the strong presence of wood, rattan, and marble. Fogged-up glass partitions appear to divide the space without diminishing the sense of area size.

During the Cannes Yachting Festival 2023, Bluegame also unveiled BGH, a hydrogen-fueled vessel that floats beside BGM75. In collaboration with the New York Yacht Club American Magic, the chase boat follows the design restrictions of the America’s Cup protocol.

 

It calls for a boat of only 10 meters with only hydrogen propulsion and with foils that must achieve a speed of 50 knots and a range of 180 miles. All these elements emerge in the hydrogen vessel by Bluegame, which can be seen together with BGM75 at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2023.
