Power Multihulls

46' Cruising Catamaran

46' power catamaran in composite.
Twin staterooms forward and a spacious bridgedeck salon area define this 46' power catamaran. As well it has an extensive aft deck lounge for entertaining. Construction is knitted glass roving and foam core. Advanced engineering keeps the weight down and the aerodynamic house cabin helps reduce drag at speed. Both combine to give surprising speed and economy. Unit #1 was designed with surface piercing props, but I believe a standard 3 blade prop will provide a more cost-effecitve and reliable solution. The hulls are semi-planing, providing a smoother ride than a full planing configuration, and better economy at the lower speeds. Expect 100 hp per side to give between 23 and 25 knots depending on loading.
