Excess 14 - First off, pleasure at the helm!

Create a notification for "Catamaran"

The Excess 14 retains the attributes of her three forebears (aft-set nacelle, helm stations aft on the hulls and modern design), and even gives a little more with the hulls being asymmetrical, a little like the good old Hobie Cat 14 and 16, whose outboard edges create the anti-leeway effect. Also notable are optimized and deeper skegs, with a draft of 4’10” (1.48 m). As for the rig, like the Excess 11, it is stepped forward of the coachroof. The self-tacking jib of the previous models now becomes a very slightly overlapping solent, and an XXL bowsprit can bring the overall length to 52’5” (15.99 m). Numerous layout possibilities are available, among which is the neat idea of the Owner’s hull with a dressing room in the forepeak.
