  1. Curvelle 33-meter Catamaran
    Fractional Stability from a Curvy Feline

    With the Curvelle 33-meter catamaran, some of the finest naval architects,
    consultants and designers came together with one objective in mind: to create
    a yacht that challenges the status quo and offers a viable alternative to cruising
    aficionados with a fractional yacht that saves dollars and makes sense.​

    With an aluminum hull and fiberglass superstructure built by Cheoy Lee, Naval Architecture by Incat Crowther, exterior styling by Luc Vernet and interior design by Alex Isaac of Lila-Lou, this spacious new feline is set to pounce on the yacht market, presenting fractional stability in unsettling times.

    Curvelle Director, Luuk V. van Zanten has been working directly with LILA-LOU partner, Alexander Isaac, previously Associate Director of Bannenberg Designs. Van Zanten commented, “We have exceptional space in the 33X9 due to its catamaran design. The 9 meter beam offered our designers the freedom to develop something really special for our customers. The yacht already provides a huge space advantage over an equivalent length monohull, so we have given the interior design that something special in quality, flexibility and breathtaking contemporary styling.”
  2. According to Curvelle, this new 33-meter Cat cruises equally well at a performance speed of 20-25 knots or at a trans-Atlantic pace of 10 knots. Maximum fuel efficiency per nautical mile comes at 21 knots, which delivers a projected 30% fuel savings. But Curvelle's real performance stats come in the form of stability and space. The 33-meter X 9-meter catamaran provides as much guest space as some +40 meter monohulls.
  3. How much space? Up to 50% more. Because of the extra beam of a catamaran and four decks - a competing monohull will have three at the most - the all-important guest areas on a Curvelle yacht are about 50% more spacious than on a monohull of a similar length and performance.
  4. The LILA-LOU Design Studio is responsible for the modern interior and decks for the Curvelle 33X9. Founded in 2005, the LILA-LOU design team has an impressive record of designs. Their exterior designs for Ankida (a 73m sailing yacht featured on YachtForums), G108 (a 108m motor yacht also featured on YachtForums), & the Double L Explorer, (a 47m motor yacht), among others, have garnered much industry attention.
  5. As such, LILA-LOU has been commissioned to develop three further projects for the Curvelle brand, including a 43m catamaran & a 25m solar yacht, utilizing their progressive digital and technical solutions, such as an all-glass divider between the wheelhouse and the skylounge salon, seen here...
  6. Linda Lou has taken full advantage of Curvell's full beam. Unlike most monohulls, cats have a waterborne beam that rivals most houses. Designers often use the added space for wider decks, or in this case, looking aft from the dining area, an all-glass vista spans the beam...
  7. This is one of the many stateroom configurations available. See the GA's for further lay-out options, which include flexible accommodations for up to 12 guests in over 20 layout options, such as 6 double guest cabins - or 3 full suites - or a combination of double and single beds, all on the main deck providing horizonal views from each stateroom.
