Power catamaran

Archipelago 47 - An aluminum powercat for extreme programs

The builder has taken great care to combine robustness and comfort - the interior is fitted out with the greatest of care and is even equipped with an underfloor heating system, contrasting with the “utilitarian” appearance conjured up in large part by the forward windows whose slope is reversed. Another very “professional” detail is that the interior helm station can be blocked off, so a night watch can be properly maintained even with the lights remaining on in the saloon. Note the large trampolines up front, now a very atypical feature aboard a powercat. Our only one regret with the deck plan is that there are no footbraces (much less any sort of bulwark...) on the side decks. The nacelle remains very open to the cockpit - the latter, decked with synthetic teak and its after end becoming a neat aft platform. A large part of the coachroof is taken up by a roof rack, which is very practical for carrying kayaks or paddleboards for example. Generously powered (840 HP in total for a lightship displacement of 17 tons), the Archipelago 47 is capable of reaching a maximum speed of 25 knots. The builder also offers hybrid and electric propulsion systems and will soon be designing other models with the aim of creating a complete range.
