SUPERYACHT SUPPORT VESSEL

switchblade

Designer T. E. Goffrier and carbon fiber gurus Fast Forward Composites collaboration, the Eagle Class 53, won 4 separate awards this year. They are joining forces again to develop a new concept based on the growing trend of Auxiliary Support Craft that carry a larger array of Toys and Aircraft than their mother ship is able. The length and capacity of these support vessels has steadily grown over recent years. Within a relatively modest length, Switchblade has an unrivaled load capacity and inherent stability, not to mention expanding the entertaining possibilities for the owner and guests of its mother-ship. 

The project is being developed with the environment in mind. Based on an extremely efficient SWATH hull-form, Switch Blade will knife through the water with great efficiency and speed. The diesel electric hybrid power, combined with a massive array of solar cells can be switched to run on 100% renewable energy for maneuvering in harbors and shorter passages.
