FlashCat 44 : A Spanish-style catamaran!We now know that the catamaran is inevitably the future for motor boats... The proof, with this FlashCat 44 catamaran.
A modern, attractive FlashCat 44 catamaran
The latest in the series, the Flash Cat 44 catamaran, which we discovered two days before the opening of the La Ciotat Show, is the fruit of three years' development. In the 'raspberry red' livery chosen by the owner, it could not be missed in the basin. Stocky, but with a well-designed shape, the bows are high and well-protected, and a PVC protection bulwark girdles the whole boat. First impressions: this is a real ocean traveller which will fear nothing. And the construction processes confirm this: hull in monolithic polyester, with a first layer in vinylester to do away with any risks of osmosis, seriously dimensioned floors, and all this carried out using the infusion process. But on looking closer, the lines, designed by the Italian architects Mezzera and Gandino, descend again prettily towards the bows. The aft platform, the cockpit and the teak deck give a first warm touch. The stainless steel gates with the builder's coat of arms and the wonderful three-door 'picture window', which opens wide onto an opulent interior, finally reassure: this boat is also civilised.
