Azzum Wavepiercer - 12m Trimaran
C3NZ’s first build is a wave-piercing trimaran that demonstrates unrivalled sea keeping for a vessel of this size. Our 12m trimaran, ‘Azzum’, has been designed to be used as a seriously capable pleasure boat that will maintain its speed in conditions that would keep most other boats at home. Powering is from twin Yanmar 370Hp diesel turbo inboards running through custom designed and built surface drives. Reaching speeds up of to 40 knots, the 42ft wavepiercer is an exhilarating ride. A seawater ballast tank is fitted in the stem to provide extra inertia to punch the bow into waves in a head sea or to reduce displacement and fly the bow in a following sea.
This sleek, yet powerful sea vessel, is constructed from medium tech e-glass, foam and balsa composites, utilising carbon fibre where appropriate. With a very shallow draft of 580mm, the Wavepiercer can access any hidden beach, giving a freedom that many other vessels cannot offer.
The Azzum trimaran provides luxurious accommodation with comfortable sleeping for 4 adults in the form of 2 double beds, whilst side windows and overhead hatches create a sense of space and give you a chance to take in the sights and scents of the ocean from the comfort of your bed.
The flybridge is spacious and has a designer feel with tiered leather Recaro bucket seating for 4, offering all passengers incredible panoramic sea views. The saloon provides the ultimate in relaxation, with leather lounges complete with 32" retractable plasma television and surround sound stereo. The gourmet galley is highly appointed and features a two burner gas hob, stainless steel microwave, lavish built-in coffee machine, as well as a fridge and freezer.
The modern bathroom has clean lines and includes a roomy shower, basin with designer tap and toilet. It also provides ample overhead storage, with more cargo space in the head compartment as well as a large volume cockpit storage area, located beneath the deck.
