A catamaran conceived around its electric drivetrain

You can’t accuse them of sleeping on the job at HH... following the brand new HH44, HH60 and HH88, the forthcoming HH52 (as ever, designed by the Californian team of Morrelli & Melvin) has been announced.

While this model, still equipped with daggerboards, is an assumed evolution of the HH50, the platform has been entirely redesigned with the aim of going electric. The HH solution is a hybrid drivetrain with the possibility of hydrogeneration under sail. The 52 will feature a brand-new coachroof capable of integrating 4,900 Wp of solar panels. The deck layout is also new and the sail area has been increased. The interior layout has also been modified: the HH52 builds on many of the lessons learned from the development of the HH44 and HH60, including the popular L-shaped sofa, a galley island as seen aboard the larger HHs, more openings and even more convincing comfort in the cabins. The yard will also offer two helm station versions – either a forward cockpit accessed by double doors around a central helm station, or twin tillers, aft. Construction of the first HH52 has already begun: launch scheduled for late 2023.
