The concept of the Baikal 21 CAT catamaran includes the values of family life, respect for nature and praise for slowness. The opportunity to take time with you to fully enjoy your trip, for the sake of the trip itself. To merge with the sea, to get the full pleasure of driving a boat, contemplating the environment and the opportunity to freely express your desires and personal passions. They are the starting point for the development of a new catamaran filled with style, interesting design and extraordinary technical solutions dedicated to a quiet and contemplative lifestyle.
To make the dream a reality, the Italian designer Christian Grande (Christian Grande) chose a 21-meter displacement catamaran. A boat to travel for long periods in complete comfort, recognizing the natural beauties and intimacy inherent in sea travel. A sort of entertaining island to be lived without any need to show off or show off.
Once inside this generously sized environment and its "entertainment" intent, one is immediately surprised. The central saloon, complete with a bar and furnished with a very large sofa and dining area, also has a peculiar underwater observatory: a glass platform integrated with the floor to a level with a saloon veranda and the sea overlooking between the hulls, giving a suggestive view of the sea and its inhabitants, especially at night with the help of specially designed underwater lights.
From saloon to lower deck, the vast potential of the catamaran's living space is fully exploited: two spacious VIP cabins with private bathrooms, a galley and a "kids room" with folding seats and a super sofa, giving them a real and generous playground.
The prototyping area, with another comfortable sofa, gives access to the master cabin, fitted with a glass floor under the bed, which appears to be floating on an illuminated sea. There is also a large wardrobe, vanity tables and an even larger private bathroom with double basin, shower, whirlpool and separate WC.
The character, desires and vision of the owner are fully expressed in the final product. Truly a whole boat, despite it's generous dimensions, careful and gentle, entertaining and respectful of the environment.
The color scheme is full of respect and reverence for the nature of the Mediterranean. Borrowed from cliffs, bays, streams and rendered in delicate tones such as bronze, metallic champagne and mocha, it pays homage to the most beautiful coastal areas. The surfaces are soft and seductive, all connected to the marine habitat. Natural lines and elements of wildlife awaken on the deck, which is completely covered in sand-colored teak planks and curves like desert dunes, especially in the cockpit area, as if they were really shaped by wind and water.
Another respect for nature is represented by the bow of the boat, shaped around a central tunnel in specific imitation of a Manta's mouth.
Everything is crafted to be gentle in both form and material, including a selection of pastel colors and continuous glass to illuminate the felling profile, and culminating in two vertical gardens on either side of the exterior living area. On one side of the cockpit, a relaxing hammock is offered, another clear sign of a leisurely life and the notion of a leisurely project.
A glass-lined aft terrace with smooth sofas and cushions creates a natural sea view and is repeated on the flybridge with a seating area and sunbeds forward of the bridge.
The craving for outdoor life, as well as the desired connection with the elements, is even more emphasized when we look at the interiors, where we can find several relaxing and contemplative spaces intended to communicate the Owner's (new European) love of cinema, literature and meditation about life. A wide and continuous glass door, with no visible structural elements, can become a mirror or movie screen.
Even on the flybridge, everything is thought out for comfort and a feeling of spaciousness. Contemplating the sea and surroundings is much more interesting thanks to the bar with a bar and bar stools, and a large sofa standing close to them. In addition to the seating area and helm station, the flybridge has enough space for a tender and an electric crane to lift it.
Flexibility and versatility of use are also guaranteed by the physical characteristics of the boat: large, with a high bulwark, with the possibility of installing a canopy from an awning to protect the owner from the sun or bad weather.
The catamaran is equipped with two engines powered by Volvo Penta IPS1200. This helps to reduce the environmental impact – thanks to Volvo Penta IPS consumption 33% less compared to other engines. And also so that the crew and the Owner can easily approach and depart from the berth thanks to the joystick control of the processes.
