Excess 14 - Priority given to the pleasure of helming

Create a notification for "Catamaran"

This model, following on from the Excess 11, validates the principle of total autonomy: no elements coming from Lagoon are used here. The emphasis has been placed on the pleasure of helming, with asymmetrical hulls, deeper appendages and a sail plan potentially boosted by a boom that’s almost flush with the bimini and large downwind sails secured to long bowsprit. Compared to the Excess 11, note the return of an overlapping genoa and a pivoting helm seat that is more functional (it is integrated into the mini-bimini) than the old folding seats. The colors and materials are also a little more neutral than the flashier ambiance seen aboard the Excess 12 and 15.
