Broadblue Rapier 550 catamaran : Pioneering breakthroughs
For several months now we have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of the Broadblue Rapier 550 catamaran. Broadblue entrusted the design to Darren Newton (and Nick Bailey) who also undertook the build, at the Multimarine yard. This fact, combined with a very advanced specification, has all the makings of an exceptional project. We set off for Portsmouth (UK) for a two-day test, including the famous Round the Island Race (round the Isle of Wight), with more than 1,500 boats on the startline.
Broadblue Rapier 550 catamaran : An immediately obvious unique styleA rapier is an elaborately designed long, thin sword. A description which fits well with this catamaran whose sophisticated design hovers between asserting a bold image while retaining clean lines. The pen of Nick Bailey and Darren Newton flirts with an avant-garde style, but the accuracy of the proportions gives the boat an almost classic personality. The quality of the workmanship and the black and white dress code join together to give a beautiful and sensual result.
Broadblue Rapier 50 catamaran : A sharp and innovative multihull
The Broadblue Rapier 550 catamaran wants it all, and wants it right now! Even so, it is not borne of the dreams of Antigone, but of rational and exacting thought, used to creating designs for the testing areas of northern waters. Speed, comfort in every possible climate and maneuverability remain greatly opposing concepts. Broadblue’s approach raises the bar, is innovative in many areas and uses only reliable technical solutions! A challenge for which the bar is already raised high! We need to have a look.
