Craig Loomes Design Group is recognized as an industry leader in the design of Wavepiercer Catamarans. >p> Naval architect and stylist, Craig Loomes brings over 20 years of boat design and building expertise to the company. In 1998, Craig Loomes won the prestigious International Super Yacht Society Award in the 23-32m category for his 26m Wavepiercer "Ultimate Lady". Craig Loomes has an international reputation for designing attractive, practical top performing boats.

85m Wavepiercer - This 85m wavepiercer is deliberately styled with a ’cab forward’ emphasis, retaining the characteristic CLD styling with its distinctive hawk eye window and ramping through four tiers to an upper heli deck. Intended for use as both a private motor yacht and also for elite charter purposes, the boat is targeted for operation in the US, Europe and the Caribbean.

Four main accommodation levels are offered, including the upper heli deck some 44’ above the waterline, affording dramatic views. A dramatic circular atrium allows natural light to filter through all three levels of the boat from the glass dome atop the heli deck roof. A bathroom, shower and change area service the outside jacuzzi and a gymnasium, located in the aft sections of the mid deck.

The helipad is sized to handle a Bell 430 helicopter or Bell Agusta 603 Tiltrotor aircraft, with full access to all parts of the aircraft from the deck. 3000 gallons of Jet A fuel is carried aboard the vessel. The forward portion of the bridge deck is dominated by a command station befitting a vessel of these proportions and complemented by a Portuguese Bridge leading forward to the sunken bow and aft to the accommodation, including the Captain’s and First Officer’s suites, storerooms, main galley, movie theatre, and guest offices. The dining room on this level accommodates a large dining table with seating for twenty people, as well as space for a grand piano and loose seating. And when the weather is fine, there is plenty of space for al fresco dining on the aft deck.

Luxury accommodation for the discerning guest is provided on the main deck. Eight king sized cabins and four twins, each with extensive ensuite bathroom facilities, jacuzzi bath and private external deck with hydraulically actuated screening doors can provide accommodation for 24 guests. Large opening windows allow the guest cabin jacuzzi to be transformed into an outside area. Also, this vessel has a large automobile garage on the Lower Deck.

The demi-hulls house all major machinery. Twin tender garages are located in the aft sections of each demi-hull, housing 26’ rigid bottomed inflatable boats. Twin staircases at each quarter stern lead down to the 80 square foot swim platforms or to the tender garages. The tenders are deployed via hydraulically actuated side doors, seven feet wide and 30 feet long, which hinge close to water line and form a useful dock for the tenders and other vessels to draw along side. This also makes a convenient boarding area for guests arriving at the vessel by water.
