TS42: a catamaran with 42 shades of pleasure

The TS42 bucks the current trend of cruising catamarans which have amazing living spaces on a platform over 50 feet in length, and offers you “just as much as you need” in terms of comfort, yet at the same time it has the attraction of a sporty performance and the ease of use of a compact catamaran. Join us for a lively two-day offshore sea trial!

TS 42 catamaran : Proud of its origins
The fundamentals of catamaran design are fixed for now! Relatively fine-entry bows, increasing semi-circular volumes and an arch-shape are all agreed on (with some notable exceptions, obviously!) Nevertheless, a more “Darwinian” observation shows evidence of significant evolution with certain innovative designs (and the TS42 is one of these). The TS50 or the 52 stand apart from most contemporary boats by having a power to weight ratio worthy of a GT automobile. The bodybuilding bows, the work which goes into the aerodynamic coefficient and the hydrodynamic qualities of an exceptional hull all combine with a low overall weight to offer enlightened owners some incredible new sensations. Françis Joyon (currently the fastest single-handed circumnavigator) has put this into perspective by putting in several 400 mile days on the boat’s first transatlantic delivery! The TS50-52 has just entered the very select club of the fastest cruising catamarans in the world and still has pride of place, despite the accidental capsize of one boat in extreme conditions (a brutal williwaw coming down off a Scottish fjord). We had been inspired by the test done in 2011 (Multihulls World No.119) and suggest this article as recommended reading as well as the hair-raising video to accompany it (available here).

A catamaran with an elegant, creative look
Nobody will fail to be impressed by the TS42’s flowing lines…
