Lifestyle & Use

A blue water cruising catamaran designed for short-handed sailing, with excellent sailing performance and a spacious, bright and comfortable interior for living aboard.

Unique Features

The helm station is thoughtfully designed for easy, short-handed sailing, and the moulded bimini roof makes the cockpit feel comfortable and protected. With a semi-custom design and build, the boat can be tailored to the owner's specific needs, with options for two, three or four double berth cabins.

Design & Build

Designed by Angelo Lavranos, combining aesthetic design, engineering, and offshore experience the yachts are in production at a purpose-designed factory in Cape Town, South Africa. With the focus on quality workmanship and attention to detail, each custom catamaran is soundly built.

Prices & Process

The catamaran is a fully custom build, and the final price will vary depending on your choice of specifications and equipment. Build time is approximately 10 months. Please contact Bruce for more information.
