The Euro 1480 Bi-Plane is a new custom design commissioned by a client wanting to think outside the box and utilise the bi-plane rig on a commercial vessel. The concept suits commercial work well due to it's simplicity and the outward situated masts mean that the interior bridgedeck space can be utilised more effectively.
The interior layout of the Euro 1480 Bi-Plane features a large main cabin with ensuite situated forward on the bridgedeck, with a walk-around galley behind leading out to a large cockpit with plenty of seating for guests. Two queen cabins are located down in each hull, with their own toilet and shower and a smaller berth forward.
This layout would suit skippered chartering with crew occupying one cabin and guests in the main cabin, or any desired combination. The bi-plane rig means easy sailing and sail handling with minimal sail controls cluttering the deck space.
