BGH: Daring the Impossible

POSTED On 22.09.2022

Ameglia (SP), 22 September 2022. Memento audere semper (remember always to dare), with BGH Bluegame has made Gabriele D'Annunzio's motto its own. After the presentation to a parterre of journalists during the Sanlorenzo group's press conference at the recent Cannes Boat Show, for the first time the public will be able to admire the large-scale model of the most daring challenge that Bluegame's non-conformist and pioneering soul has dared to seize: designing and building for the New York Yacht Club, American Magic, challenger of the 37th edition of the America's Cup to be held in Barcelona in 2024, the first hydrogen-powered "chase boat", in accordance with the strict requirements of the event's Protocol.

An extremely complex challenge from a design and technical point of view: a vessel of only 10 metres that must reach a speed of 50 knots and a range of 180 miles, propelled exclusively by hydrogen in combination with foils. 

Zero emissions, releasing only a few drops of water into the environment, the ultimate expression of sustainability in yachting, unimaginable until very recently.

A brave and remarkable project for which Luca Santella, head of Bluegame's Product Strategy, has assembled a team of exceptional expertise whose members have all been involved in the design process in the last America's Cup editions, gaining the utmost know-how in the areas of structures and composites, foil design and the management of the software that controls the trim of these sophisticated flying boats.

Choosing Bluegame as a partner in the adventure to win back the America's Cup is the world's most aristocratic and exclusive Yacht Club, which has made history in this event, winning the first edition in 1851 and holding the record for 132 years, the longest winning streak in the history of the sport.

A great recognition of Bluegame's design value, a dream realised, which will touch the sea in spring 2023.
