A new Dazcat, to celebrate the designer's 25th anniversary
To celebrate his 25 years as a designer, Darren Newton has just presented a new project, the Dazcat 1350, to show the developments in the world of multihulls over a quarter of a century.
We find of course a very fast cruiser-racer, which will be entered in ocean races. But this is not all, as the programme must allow cruising with 2 to 4 people. Aboard, we find the accommodation of a 12-metre boat (it is 14m long) and no more, but the aim is to be light (4,000 kg), easy to manœuvre and exciting under sail, whilst remaining comfortable and pleasing to the eye... Quite a programme!
A boat which should live up to the builder's motto: 'make it light, make it fast, make it beautiful'...
