Andrew Trujillo is pleased to announce his latest 25m wooden motor yacht ‘Sabre’ concept. The 25m yacht has been designed to be built by a cold moulding process whereby veneers of wood are laid out at angles to each other in combination with an epoxy resin. The concept will also plan to have water jet propulsion
‘Sabre’ has been developed by Andrew Trujillo in the UK. The yacht has been an exercise in thinking and to show the designer’s take on designing a yacht that is more sustainable but practical and easier to maintain than a conventional wooden boat. The other advantage of using the process selected is that overall the material performs very well as it is light weight and very strong. This ensures that the yacht is efficient.
Andrew Trujillo said: “I recall going out on a water-jet propelled Italian yacht that I had been involved with on the design and was really impressed by how it worked and particularly how effective it was at slowing the vessel down. I was converted. I figured that it is the future and I believe wood also has an important part to play too, we use it throughout the interiors of our yachts, but it should be used on the exterior. The design is relatively simple and uncluttered. It does make gentle references to classic wooden boats, but it is a modern interpretation. I feel that it is important to move things on.”
