Wärtsilä and Pastrovich Studio partner to build luxury catamaran

Design of a 60mtr long luxury catamaran, with accommodation for up to 36 passengers, is being created by Finnish company Wärtsilä and Pastrovich Studio in Monaco.

The new vessel will feature a fully integrated combination of hybrid propulsion and solar panels for high energy efficiency, resulting in minimal impact on the environment.

X-Expedition

The agreement to develop the hybrid boutique cruise vessel follows the recent news that the two companies have paired to design the 101mtr long X-Expedition cruise ship, which also integrates the energy-saving Wärtsilä Hybrid system.

‘Efficiency and environmental performance are key pillars of Wärtsilä’s Smart Marine approach, which emphasises the need to collaborate with world-class partners’, says Giammario Meloni, senior sales manager, Wärtsilä Italia. ‘We look forward to co-developing with Stefano Pastrovich a totally integrated solution that combines energy efficiency, sustainability and onboard comfort’.

Italian naval architect, Stefano Pastrovich, adds, ‘Bringing together our architectural and marine technology know-how will create a mega-yacht design on the leading edge of innovation. 

‘I’m convinced boutique cruise ships of this calibre could spark a turning point in the charter market, attracting a new customer base of millennials and cruise veterans’. 

History of collaboration

Wärtsilä has worked with Pastrovich in projects that include the 99m X-Vintage in 2011.
