YACHT STYLE Issue 53: Catamarans Shine in ‘Multihulls Issue’ 2020
Yacht Style’s second annual Multihulls Issue throws the spotlight on power and sailing catamarans, as the boating industry pushes on.
Considering how sustainability has pushed to the fore again during this difficult period, Yacht Style’s annual ‘Multihulls Issue’ seems to have come at a good time and we’re delighted to profile the latest updates on these twin-hulled cruisers, whose appeal goes far beyond impressive economy.
Sailing catamarans still dominate the order books of the likes of Sunreef, Lagoon, Leopard, Fountaine Pajot and Bali (Catana), yet there are also several powercat-only builders like Aquila, ILIAD and Silent-Yachts, which all have production facilities in China.
With many of these catamaran builders developing increasingly large motor yachts, powercats have been making headlines since our last multihull issue, so we’ve split our cover story between power and sail.
Nautor’s Swan owner Leonardo Ferragamo talks about the Finnish builder’s growing one-design classes and new maxi era.
In fact, considering the effect Covid-19 has had on the industry, it’s remarkable just how much has been happening, with exciting model updates from Sunseeker, Custom Line, Sanlorenzo, Abeking & Rasmussen, Dynamiq, Sunreef, Nautor’s Swan, Dufour, Numarine, Bakri Cono and Grand Banks.
In our region, Sanlorenzo Asia has opened an office while Asia Superyacht Development has partnered with Yachtalia (Besenzoni, Opacmare …), while the issue also features a lively Luxury section that puts the ‘style’ into Yacht Style.
Columns covers the Water Revolution Foundation’s ‘Sustainability in Practice’ course, the benefits of boating and marinas to an economy, and the appeal of a new sailing school in Subic Bay, Philippines, which gives a taste of what people can do once we’re finally allowed out and it’s safe to catch up with family and friends, travel and get out on the water.
