Meet Spear, an Epic 460-Foot Trimaran Idea Designed to Slice Via the Seas

Believe it or not, one of man’s oldest weapons has inspired a futuristic new trimaran concept.

Penned by disruptive designer Theodore Fotiadis and the folks at Lateral Naval Architects, the aptly named Spear has the sharp, pointed silhouette of a forged iron tip that will render it both striking and efficient on the high seas.

Replete with sleek, aerodynamic lines, the 460-footer features an elongated reverse bow that can slice through waves and a streamlined hull optimized for efficient, high-speed cruising. The design team says the trimaran requires 20 percent less propulsion power than a 360-foot monohull at cruise speed. In fact, Spear’s energy demands would be akin to a much smaller, 262-foot yacht.

Speaking of power, Spear’s propulsion system is built around a medium-speed engine often found in large commercial vessels that reportedly provides a further 15 percent fuel saving per kW compared to a typical high-speed engine. The sponsons will be able to store plenty of fuel, too, with tanks designed to hold the renewable biofuel of the future.

As for performance, Spear can reach a top speed of 21 knots and a cruising speed of 18 knots. With reduced fuel demands, the go-anywhere cruiser has an impressive estimated range of more than 7,500 nautical miles.

Seafarers will be able to explore the globe in comfort, too. With a giant beam of 75 feet and a generous interior volume of 4,650 GT, Spear offers abundant living space onboard.

The main deck is centered around a large lounge and dining area, with two generous guest staterooms positioned amidships. Upstairs, the owner’s deck features a full-beam forward-facing stateroom with a private lounge, a luxe en suite, and a private deck with views of the helipad. The owner’s deck also has an additional guest stateroom and another lounge and dining area. Crew cabins can be found on the lower deck, while the captain’s cabin sits on the bridge deck.

Geared toward outdoor living, Spear sports an expansive sundeck, multiple alfresco dining spots, and plenty of open-air lounge areas. Exterior highlights include an epic infinity pool, a beach club with direct ocean access, and an upper deck Jacuzzi.

“With its striking streamline design, Spear combines efficiency, comfort, and expansive open spaces to create an unparallel cruising experience,” Lateral said in a statement.

Fingers crossed we see Spear hit the seas.
