Power catamaran

Long Island 78’ Power - Hull #1 launched

Create a notification for "Power catamaran"

The hulls designed by Marc Lombard are made of aluminum, while the deck, superstructure and wheelhouse use composite materials. With its two 500 HP Cummins engines, the 78 Power cruises at 12 knots, with three more knots to reach top speed. The objective, thanks to this moderate engine size, the large tank capacity and the extensive work that’s gone into controlling the displacement, is to offer transatlantic range.

The deck layout presents some interesting innovations: the wheelhouse on the flybridge is an enclosed space intended for navigation but also for relaxation with a bench seat and a desk. This wheelhouse is complemented at the stern by a table and a kitchenette. Forward, on the main deck, there is a saloon and a seawater pool.

The interior layout of the nacelle is particularly voluminous and open to the exterior with a 360° view. The main deck offers several living areas: galley and saloon with direct access to the foredeck to port, dining area and navigation station to starboard. In the hulls, the builder has fitted out an owner's suite and four guest cabins.
