C-Cat 62: Welcome to the big league!

While their smaller model is forging a path in a market little exploited by the big builders, this next C-Cat 62 will be facing models that are already well-established in the sector of high performance, top of the range catamarans over 60 feet - Catana, HH, Icecat, Kinetic, McConaghy, O Yachts. It looks as though the project is being well carried out judging by the very attractive design - the two-tone coachroof and the design of the hatches are particularly successful. The sleek deck plan manages to reconcile sail maneuvering, ease of moving around on board and space for relaxation. The two raised helm stations and the retractable door also look great. The overhead hatches in the saloon will bring in a lot of light, and they fit into a slight reveal, helping to protect them under the tropical sun from ageing of the seals, which are highly exposed to UV rays, and the expansion of the glazing. Inside, the manufacturer is proposing from 3 to 5 cabins and numerous customizations, at the request of the client. With her 14-ton displacement for 222 m² (2,390 sq ft) of upwind sail area, the C-Cat 62 has a sail area /weight ratio comparable to that of a Gunboat. A guarantee of lining up 350 to 400-mile days under the trade winds...
