Australian custom superyacht builder Echo Yachts have proudly revealed their 84-metre superyacht newbuild project White Rabbit during an exclusive VIP event at their shipyard in Henderson, Western Australia.
White Rabbit is 100 percent custom designed and built according to its experienced owner’s exacting requirements and is the culmination of four years of detailed design and construction efforts by the team involved.
At nearly 3000 gross tonnes, 84 metres in length and 19.6-metre beam, White Rabbit is the largest superyacht built in Australia and is the largest aluminium and largest tri-hull superyacht in the world.
Designed by Sorgiovanni Design, White Rabbit showcases the highest standards of luxury cruising and will provide amazing seakeeping, speed and fuel efficiency for a vessel of its size and magnitude.
Echo Yachts celebrated the reveal of White Rabbit in style during the exclusive reveal function featuring an evening of VIP speeches, a video documentary of the build, plus an evocative and memorable sound and a light show including special guest and cellist Ms Joanna Quail of London.
Guests were provided with the rare opportunity to step onboard and view some of the expansive exterior entertaining spaces and enormous luxury interior spaces thanks to the hospitality of White Rabbit’s owner and family who were in attendance for the special event.
Echo Yachts director Mark Stothard commented on the launch. “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 sheer 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.
