In a stunning debut at the 2023 Cannes Yachting Festival, Bluegame, an illustrious San Lorenzo brand, unveiled its maiden masterpiece: the BGM75 motor yacht. This visionary vessel, marked by its unique twin-hull design and ingenious garage for a tender boat, sent ripples of astonishment through the maritime world. Nestled between the two hulls, a unifying volume weaves horizontal surfaces together, conjuring the optical illusion of a monohull. Bluegame boldly asserts that this audacious layout defies the norms of traditional catamarans, marking the BGM75 as a trailblazer in the realm of dual-hulled motor yachts.
In stark contrast to the typically boxy profiles of conventional catamarans, the BGM75 exudes a sleek and sophisticated aura. It’s akin to an ordinary yacht, graced by an additional hull that creates an expansive interstitial expanse between the twin structures, reminiscent of a single-hulled vessel. This innovative design choice yields an abundance of room, including an owner’s cabin that sprawls across the entire vessel’s width.
The dream of an owner’s cabin on a regular catamaran, hindered by the yawning chasm between hulls, becomes a reality on the BGM75. What’s more, the vacant space typical of traditional catamarans finds purpose on this visionary craft, concealing an automated garage where a smaller boat can be stowed, ready to be lowered into the azure depths whenever desired. Thanks to its narrower width compared to most catamarans of similar length, the BGM75 comfortably docks in spaces designed for conventional single-hulled vessels, bypassing the need for the sprawling berths reserved for behemoth superyachts.
The genesis of the BGM75 was a painstaking process, spanning nearly three years of rigorous testing and design refinement. Unlike its conventional counterparts, crafting this motor yacht demanded a substantially greater investment of time and resources. During production, Bluegame strategically trimmed the length-to-width ratio, rendering the BGM75 compatible with berths intended for monohull boats, a testament to its efficiency. The masterful hull design, the brainchild of Philippe Briand, a luminary in high-performance hull engineering, underpins the vessel’s exceptional performance.
The creative prowess of Piero Lissoni from Lissoni & Partners and Bernardo Zuccon of Zuccon International Project converged to shape both the exterior and interior aesthetics of the BGM75. The exterior’s striking, almost singular lines and carefully curated palettes offer a tantalizing preview of the capacious interiors, where meticulously chosen materials harmonize with the vessel’s abundant space.
Upon arrival, wooden slabs dot the platform, while tinted windows and doors artfully conceal the inner sanctum, creating a harmonious symphony of design. Ascending the stairs to the open-air upper deck, passengers are treated to panoramic vistas of the surrounding seascape. Within the yacht’s inner sanctum, cabins are adorned with neutral elements, punctuated by the warmth of wood, the allure of rattan, and the opulence of marble. Fogged glass partitions subtly divide the space, preserving an expansive ambiance.
Not content with a single revelation, Bluegame seized the Cannes Yachting Festival 2023 as the stage for the unveiling of BGH, a hydrogen-fueled vessel that gracefully glided alongside the BGM75. In partnership with the New York Yacht Club American Magic, this chase boat adheres to the exacting design constraints of the America’s Cup protocol. A mere 10 meters in length, it relies solely on hydrogen propulsion and boasts foils engineered to achieve speeds of 50 knots with a remarkable range of 180 miles. The hydrogen marvel by Bluegame, accompanied by the BGM75, constitutes a visionary tableau at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2023, leaving spectators in awe of the boundless innovation afloat.
