The Marathon 90, an expeditionary Motor Yacht based on the Derecktor-built “Titania” is in the design stage at Derecktor’s Engineering department.
Taking the concept of “Titania” – a handsome, seaworthy and strong Motor Yacht for extended cruising – the new vessel will incorporate today’s technology and equipment to provide a tremendously efficient, reliable and safe yacht, capable of crossing oceans in comfort.
Her low resistance hull form allows a cruising speed of 10-16 knots, with a 3500 nm range at the lower end. Propulsion options will include twin screw with either two or four diesels. This “quad” option will offer both redundancy and the ability to utilize two, three or four motors at a given time for greater efficiency or to allow service while running.
Auxilary machinery space ( pumps, generators, compressors, AC chillers , water makers , hot water tanks etc ) will be located in a mid ships full headroom space between crews quarters and guest accommodations. This full size space provides for easy access and maintenance of the ship systems as well as efficient service distribution of systems throughout the vessel. The separation of propulsion machinery from auxiliary machinery also means added safety in the event of fire or flooding of either space.
The aft located engine room, combined with advanced insulation materials and vibration reduction techniques, results in superior comfort and noise reduction while underway at all speeds. This will result in a remarkably quiet interior.
