2012 46FT Sports Powercat
THE FUTURE WITH POWERCATS
Catamaran and Wavepiercer designs have long been the choice for innovative people "looking for more" from their boats. More stability, more room, more speed and up to 40% more fuel economy. The evolution of the Power-catamaran has been rapid over the past 10 years, to a point where they are seen as the future new trend in motoryachts. This has already been seen by their take over in the commercial passenger ferry market. After building several Power Catamarans and Sailing Cats from 42-86ft, we see a great future in this area.
Our largest powercat build, Pacific Harmony (below) was created for us to charter the America's Cup in 2003 and motor to USA. Conceived as a long range global luxury cruiser with 3000 mile range at 8-10kts and over 1000 mile range at 20kts on a mere 3500 gallons of fuel, we motored her to Florida and sold her at the Ft Lauderdale boat show. She features 20-30% more room than monohulls of her length, 30-40% less fuel consumption and the bonus of extra stability than a monohull underway or at rest without the need for stabilisers. Being an 86 foot, long range, high speed cruiser with the volume of a 100 footer and then the economy of a 60 footer makes a very desirable efficient boat. She can be built again or visit our Powercat Multihull section for 46ft and 56ft models in development.

The new 46 Powercat range offers a layout ideal to both socialising and watersports activities. The displacement hull offers the benefit of reducing fuel consumption by as much as half at 16-25 kts speeds compared with similar size planing monohull boats. The Planing hull version offers very high speeds on low horsepower with the option of foil assistance to generate extra lift and reduce drag.
