Palma 30 - Is this a comeback for small liveaboard catamarans?

Create a notification for "Catamaran"

The Palma 30 project is the result of collaboration between Nicolas Purnu, Marc Lombard's long-time partner in multihull design, and Jean-Noël Lebrun, a specialist in composite construction. The hulls and deck of the Palma 30 will be made using a PVC foam/glass/vinylester sandwich in infusion. Light and well-canvassed, this new model should be very lively under sail. Its particularity is to be available in three versions: the Open, with a central cockpit; the Navigator, with a galley, a bathroom and a large arch/cover; and lastly the Grand Tourisme, with a proper solid coachroof and four double berths (4’7” / 1.40 m wide aft, 3’11” / 1.20 m forward). It will be possible to upgrade the catamaran to a more complete version. The launch of the first Palma 30 is announced for 2022 in La Rochelle, France.
