cat-hpAlready under construction is the latest addition to the Alumarine house. The French shipyard’s 48-foot catamaran, designed with the collaboration of naval architect Pierre Delion, will be in the water in August 2014. This new 15-meter has a sturdy aluminum structure, a material in which the French shipyard has long specialized.


FORWARD A COCKPIT THAT CAN BE ACCESSED FROM THE INTERIOR

The first feature that one notices when looking at the deck drawings is the presence of a forward cockpit that can be accessed directly from the interior, through the French doors of the master cabin. This area turns out to be a very pleasant area while sailing, but also on evenings spent at anchorage. Also noteworthy is the presence of two otherFrench doors on the sides of the multihull that allow convenient access to the interior especially in port. All areas of the main deck are on the same level to promote communication between inside and outside. We then find all of the maneuvers deferred to the wheelhouse area, which allows easy handling of the catamaran even with a small crew, also facilitated by the development of the maneuvering area on a single plane. The skipper’s dedicated area is well protected from both sun and rain by a well-designed hardtop and has a raised seat to ensure maximum visibility when sailing.

THE SECRETS OF ALUMINUM: STRENGTH AND WEAR RESISTANCE
The aluminum hull and superstructure construction gives the catamaran strength and wear resistance while at the same time containing displacement and providing great safety on board. Aluminum also gives a great possibility of space customization that allows the owner’s needs to be met to the fullest. Created for long sailings, this multihull is designed with ample storage space and capacious tanks (two 200-liter tanks for water and two 300-liter tanks for diesel fuel).

THE LAYOUT OF INTERIOR SPACES
The choice for the layout of the interior is functional: a very spacious salon with plenty of space for galley storage, a bathroom, a chart table on the starboard side, a very useful technical room, a heated closet for quickly drying wet oilskins, and, depending on the owner’s needs you can choose a three- or four-cabin solution.
