Alibi 65: faster, lighter, maneuverable and custom

Alibi65-5-1024x684The Alibi range of catamarans, which started eight years ago with the 54-footer, a highly successful customization model, is being expanded with a new 65-footer to be unveiled at the Dusseldorf Boat Show (Jan. 23-31, 2016).

Although the model is already in the water (the prototype boat is called Surprise), as seen in the gallery above taken in Singapore (where it made its debut at the Singapore Yacht Show), which hints that it is a “big brother” to the 54′, very little is yet known. It will be a multihull designed to achieve the best performance even in the lightest winds, thanks to innovations that, as of now, will also characterize the 54: the percentage of carbon on board has been increased from 30 to 46 percent (on the 54 this is 600 kg less!), easy sailing has still been improved, and you can practically steer it yourself. There are six cabins, plus two single bunks (!). The engine has a retractable shaft and propeller, just like those adopted on the Volvo Ocean 65 and Sydney Hobart maxis. www.alibi-catamarans.com
