Making its debut at the Cannes Yachting Festival earlier this year, Bluegame launched its first multihull motor yacht, complete with a garage for a tender garage: the Bluegame BGM75. The debut model in its range, the BGM75 sits in line with the Sanlorenzo Group owned brand, but stands on its own as the first of its kind. Featuring a groundbreaking concept that reportedly took Bluegame, together with Briand Yacht Design, roughly three years of testing and development to create, the BGM75 distinguishes itself with a layout that connects horizontal surfaces between two hulls into a single volume. Artfully creating the illusion of a monohull, a feature unachievable in traditional catamarans, her exterior and interior design is the collaborative work of renowned designers Bernardo Zuccon and Piero Lissoni. Measuring 22.7 metres in length, the exterior of the BGM75 boasts a unique look that merges the sleekness of a monohull with the benefits of a catamaran. She retains a futuristic look that maximises the 8.5-meter beam, offering increased stability, larger interior volumes, and notably reduced fuel consumption. Arguable a trailblazer straddling between two segments in yachting, read on to learn more about this innovative multihull motor yacht.
The unique layout of the BGM75 enables the inclusion of an owner’s cabin that spans the entire width of the boat, a feature seldom feasible on regular multihull catamarans. This design also cleverly utilises the space between the two hulls, often left vacant in traditional catamarans, to house an automated garage for a smaller boat. Unlike other multihull motor yachts, the BGM75 can be docked in spaces meant for regular single-hulled boats, rather than requiring larger berths for multihull yachts. Onboard, she exudes a sense of elegance and sophistication. The upper deck has an open-air concept, with space for a sit down bar, sofas and a table for alfresco dining. Depending on whether her owners opt for interior layout by Lissoni & Partners or Zuccon International Project, the open layout main deck features a galley forward with a dining table that leads into the living room.
Her interiors, furnished with neutral elements that include strong presences of wood, rattan, and marble, are partitioned by fogged-up glass, maintaining an expansive feel. Able to welcome up to eight overnight guests across four ensuite staterooms, depending on the choice of interior, this includes an expansive owner’s suite forward. In terms of sustainability and efficiency, the BGM75 sets a high bar. Her design boasts close to a 40 percent effective power savings compared to a 90-foot displacement vessel, requiring 50 percent less power than a monohull of the same volume. This is achieved through its innovative hull form, developed by Philippe Briand, and the use of carbon and other lightweight materials for non-structural components. Additionally, she can generate 5kW of green energy through 56 solar panels installed on the deckhouse.
Bluegame’s commitment to innovation is further highlighted by the BGH, a hydrogen-fueled support boat that was unveiled alongside the BGM75. This chase boat, developed in line with the design restrictions of the America’s Cup protocol, reflects the forward-thinking approach of Bluegame and Sanlorenzo in creating sustainable and high-performance yachting solutions.
The BGM75 is not just a new motor yacht, its forward design rethinks and challenges the distinctions between monohull and multihull yachts.
