Power Multihulls

85' Term Charter Catamaran

85' power catamaran in composite construction.

This 85' power catamaran was developed for a group in Mexico and another group in Ecuador. The idea was to take the robust basic configuration of an efficient charter cat and give it 8 luxurious staterooms. The captain's quarters are on the upper level. The upper level also allows a vast area to sun and lounge.

Unlike the common metal catamarans, this composite design is already insulated and quiet. The very efficient displacement hulls give a top speed of over 32 knots, but still give an unequalled smooth ride in rough water. The rigorous laminate design allows the draft of only 1.01m including the wheels. Like the other power catamarans in this lineup, it will have exceptional fuel economy.
