Bluegame at Boot Düsseldorf 2023

by Bluegame 21 Jan 09:19 PST 21-29 January 2023

The 2023 trade fair season gets off to a flying start with the return of Boot Düsseldorf after a two-year absence to be held from 21 to 29 January.

Bluegame invests in the world's largest indoor boat show and presents its vessels in an even larger and more original stand than at the last edition.

An increased presence that reflects the important evolution of the shipyard, which has further grown in the past two years in terms of economic results and innovative projects. Bluegame will take part at Boot Düsseldorf 2023 with three internationally award-winning boats. Two models from the BG line will be on display: BG72, the largest in the fleet, and the latest BG54, while the BGX60, the second generation of the brand's crossover range, will represent the BGX range.

But there will be more than just vessels on the Bluegame stand. The Sanlorenzo brand will bring a globally important guest to the fair: sustainability.

A theme that is very close to the company and has become central to its product strategies. Important projects that Bluegame is realising will be discussed, first and foremost BGH and BGM75, two different but both revolutionary models that will be launched in Cannes in 2023.

The BGH, the first boat completely powered by hydrogen propulsion, will flank the New York Yacht Club American Magic, during the 37th America's Cup to be held in Barcelona in 2024. An ultra-technological concept boat that will fly on foils at 50 knots with zero emissions, it is the result of an incredible design effort involving an unprecedented team of experts, turning the spotlight on the brand's incredible potential.

The BGM75 is also a multihull, confirming how much Bluegame believes in and wants to focus on this type of product, creating a new parallel market segment: the BGM75, in fact, is a luxurious and beautiful motor-yacht that 'incidentally' does not have one hull, but two. Distinct from any catamaran on the market thanks to the unique layout that guarantees greater stability, large volumes and reduced consumption. It is precisely in this last aspect that, with this model, the yard expresses all its design capacity, paving the way for interesting future projects in the area of sustainability.

See you in Dusseldorf!

Bluegame is always one wake ahead, actually two
With the BGM75, the Ameglia shipyard enters the multihull segment and yet again does so with a groundbreaking vessel that looks to the future, a platform for innovation that confirms the leadership in sustainability achieved by the group.

Something new is in the air, or rather in the water -- but just what is it?

It is the new Bluegame, shrouded in mystery and ready to break the rules. How was it created?
The BGM75 is the first model in the new BGM range with which Bluegame enters the multihull segment. Indeed, it could be said, with which Bluegame creates a parallel segment, far away from the multihulls to date on the market.

The BGM75, consistent with the Sanlorenzo Group's positioning, is first and foremost a luxurious, beautiful motor yacht that "by chance" has not one hull, but two. Not even in this last feature can it actually be compared to an existing catamaran on the market, as the length-to-width ratio, layout, full-beam owner's cabin, the reduced space required for mooring in the marina, and the cushioned perception of movement at sea, brings it closer to a mono hull yacht.

From the multihull, the BGM75 benefits from increased stability, large volumes, and reduced fuel consumption.

It is in this last aspect that, with the BGM75, the shipyard expresses its full design capacity in the field of sustainability.

An ultra-efficient hull derived from the America's Cup, designed by Philippe Briand, a world-renowned expert in the design of performance hulls, optimisation of the Volvo IPS propulsion system with 50% less power required than mono hull vessels of the same volume, use of carbon for the hull, use of lightweight materials for all non-structural parts and all furnishing components, all contribute to an impressive reduction in fuel consumption.

To fully understand the magnitude of this reduction, some figures based on a comparison of BGM75 equipped with 2 x Volvo 600h with a 90' displacement vessel (comparable volume) equipped with 2 x MTU1200 for 300h use: - 220 l/h, equivalent to -175 tonnes of CO2, - 66,000 litres, for a commensurate reduction of 120,000 euro!

An additional detail of attention to sustainability is the production of 5kW of green energy, guaranteed by the 56 solar panels that can be installed on the deckhouse.

Experts of the caliber of Bernardo Zuccon and Piero Lissoni, tried and tested collaborators of the brand, have fully grasped the power of such an avant-garde project, giving a "futuristic" contribution to the external lines and a smart use of the interior volumes, such as to make one forget that they are distributed over two separate hulls.

Always of the moment, maximum comfort, refinement and distinctive liveability are the hallmarks of all Bluegame models.

The BGM75 is much more than a new yacht, it is a new, highly differentiating concept, in which the shipyard has infused all its design skills and dared to innovate across the board. "Our only limitation? Being true to our DNA: great hull design for a safe and comfortable ride, robust construction, well-protected sides, large beach areas open to the sea, generous front lounge areas, connected cockpits, optimised position of the helm station, great visibility, extremely easy maneuverability, superior quality, great attention to detail and understated elegance."

Thus, commented the Head of Product Strategy, Arch. Luca Santella.
