The G70, as Tricon Marine also calls it, further features a low center of gravity for better stability and should resist roll better than other yachts. That’s due to the proprietary hull design that Tricon Marine and naval architect Howard Apollonio devised for its Argos series. The design was extensively tank tested to ensure it would be fuel-efficient, especially for long-range travel. A good turn of speed was also a requirement. The G70 is expected to cruise at 12 knots and top out at 17 knots, powered by twin 715hp Caterpillar C12 diesel engines. At speeds slightly lower than the cruise speed, the yacht should also enjoy a 2,000-nautical mile range.

Inside, the G70 will accommodate six people in three staterooms plus two crewmembers. As you’d expect of a luxury yacht, each stateroom will have an ensuite head. Guests will also appreciate a large salon with tall windows on either side. A particularly nice layout twist is the split-level sundeck which separates your tender storage from the entertaining space above. Depending on how the owner decides to outfit it, toys like PWCs or a RIB can be stowed fully aft, freeing up the front of the sundeck.
