Format 400 catamaran: a semi open from the east !
The multihull segment has come out of the slump of 2009, and is again progressing, despite the brakes linked to the price of the boats and the difficult and costly search for harbour berths. The competition between the makes is intense and has brought about a regrouping of the offer around consensual products in the leading range of 12 – 15 metre boats. The Format 400 catamaran originality has come to break up this harmony and offer an attractive alternative approach to fast, comfortable cruising.
Format 400 catamaran: An attractive
The Format 400 catamaran is a pretty catamaran; its proportions testify to a good command of the exercise, as well as a style. The elegant lines of the hulls makes it appear longer than it is in reality, the hull integrates classically designed rectangular portlights, and the hull-deck junction is quite fluid. The hard-top benefits from this design freedom, and covers a pleasant saloon and the 2 companionways; very little material, and lots of relevance! But the bows could be a little slimmer. The slender sail plan supports the silhouette’s sporty character; the (light grey) tinted gel coat contributes to the perception of a quality boat.
