“The Echo Yachts team are extremely proud to have been entrusted to create this truly unique and amazing superyacht for our valued client and it has been a pleasure to achieve such a fantastic result together with Sorgiovanni Design, One2Three Naval architects and ALIA Interiors.

 

The enormous trimaran hull form and refined styling of White Rabbit create a profound and immediate Wow Factor that no other hull form can quite achieve.

We are confident that this unique Trimaran will produce outstanding performance and provide distinct benefits compared to other hull forms in terms of shear guest space, plus sea keeping and fuel efficiency which we intend to prove during sea trials in the near future.

 

Our team are really looking forward to launching White Rabbit and demonstrating the amazing benefits and performance characteristics this special type of yacht delivers”.

 

Final preparations are now underway for the launch of White Rabbit in early September.

 

Echo Yachts will be attending this year’s Monaco Yacht Show and available for appointments to discuss newbuild and refit opportunities, with immediate build capacity available.
