Largest Archipelago yacht launched

Archipelago Yachts has launched its latest vessel, the Archipelago 80.

The addition to the range is the largest leisure vessel in the line-up. It was built upon a Chartwell Marine hull form utilised extensively in the offshore wind industry, created to be a go-anywhere, do-anything vessel, combined with the ability to be owner-operated.

The vessel is equipped with a fuel capacity of up to 20,000 litres and a payload capacity of 16 tonnes and is suitable for any weather and all conditions.

The vessel additionally offers an optional high-capacity helipad situated on the top deck.

The Archipelago 80 has a top speed of around to 30 knots and has diesel-electric propulsion as standard.

Other key features of the vessel include accommodation for up to 12 people, a shallow draft of 1m, 20kW solar panelling and various propulsion options available, including waterjets, and variable pitch propellers, tailored to specific requirements.

The vessel also has a payload capacity of 16 tonnes complemented by an optional Palfinger long-reach crane.

“The Archipelago 80 represents ultimate versatility in a sub-24m owner-operator platform, and the embodiment of our commitment to delivering exceptional experiences on the water,” said founder of Archipelago, Dr Stephen Weatherley.

“The vessel was designed for a visionary owner who shares our passion for pushing the boundaries of boating. I am very excited to see this project come to life and welcome the customer onboard for some unforgettable journeys at sea.”
