The V. G. 62 foot - the first powercat totally made in Italy
A high-performance luxury yacht capable of arriving in places where others can only get to by tender. More stable, more comfortable, faster and safer, providing above-and-below deck roominess superior to any monohull vessel of similar dimension. The V. G. 62 foot powercat is designed on these principles and built at the new dockyard facilities of V. G. Shipyard Yacht.
Exploiting every catamaran potentiality comes an extraordinary new vessel uniquely suited to match elevated performance with low fuel consumption, luxury with practicality. An exciting yacht design that goes beyond what has been offered so far anywhere else in the world.
The primary objective of the project is to achieve maximum quality based on robust fundamentals of seaworthiness, strength, performance, safety, reliability, comfort and elegance combined. All indispensable requirements for an ultramodern Mediterranean luxury powercat that cruises seas at 20 knots yet enters shallows with the greatest of ease.
The hull and deck are constructed of woven fiberglass, vinyl resin and PVC foams of differing densities, depending upon the rigidity-flexibility demands of the entire laminate. The long-lasting quality of the durable finished product is ensured by the utilization of the Vacuum Infusion Process during lamination.
This powerful pleasure craft is a proud emblem of Italian style and engineering, both in terms of her technical profile and her masterful design. The catamaran hull is the result of extensive hydrodynamic testing in a Froude's tank to guarantee maximum performance and stability, while the topside is distinguished by a sleek, aerodynamic sheer with discreet vertical bulwarks.
The cockpit is spacious and the fully equipped galley opens to a luxurious drawing-room with large sliding glass doors. Gangways are comfortable throughout and stratified glass partitions grant excellent visibility from all angles.
The distinctive fly-bridge hosts an area for guests and owner, connecting below deck via stairs and panoramic gangways. The primary wheel house is located on the fly-bridge, but the design is predisposed for a second internal wheel house if so desired.
Interior rooms are all well-lighted for night and illuminated naturally with ample bulwark windows by day. They are ventilated and air-conditioned, with many special comforts including a stereo hi-fi system, centralized in the base model, plus LCD television. The cabins have queen-size beds, spacious bathrooms and separate showers. Meticulous attention to detail is given at every stage, from personalized design elements to finished construction and launch, combining performance, looks and luxury balanced to perfection, Italian-style.
This superb craft possesses numerous characteristics unique to her class, particularly her superior roominess, both topside and inside, compared to a monohull powerboat of similar length (20% more enjoyment space.) She is safer, more stable and faster, plus she goes places that other vessels just cannot achieve thanks to her shallow draft.
