BREAKING NEWS ! KALAN 12 - Easy disembarkation

Albatross Marine Design, based in Thailand, offers a compact powercat for expeditions or professional use. This 40-foot (12-meter) catamaran built in aluminum is distinguished by its large bow deck and its bow door comparable to that of a ferry. It is therefore possible to disembark onto a quay or even onto the beach, directly from the bow. The Kalan 12 is propelled by two 250 HP outboards: the maximum announced speed is 45 to 50 knots (30 to 35 knots for cruising speed). The Kalan 12 can carry 16 people on board

L925 SEMI DISPLACEMENT POWER CAT - Epoxy ply for amateur or pro construction

New Zealand-based naval architecture firm Dan Leech is offering a number of power multihulls for amateur builders. Among them, the L925 is the perfect choice for relaxed cruising for a couple. This model is built in 1/2” (12 mm) plywood - the panels can be digitally cut - with glass/epoxy reinforcements. Its limited beam will allow you access to a marina slip without any noticeable extra cost. On the other hand, the gain in habitability and stability is considerable compared to a single-hulled motorboat. This kind of construction is very accessible to an enlightened amateur (4,000 hours of work were counted for the first model) all the more so as having outboard motors for propulsion considerably simplifies the technical aspects. Despite its semi-displacement hulls, the L925 is capable of making than 20 knots with two 90 HP engines.

ARROWCAT 320 - Compact but luxurious

The ArrowCat 320 is now in its third generation. This model features a luxurious finish - rare in compact powercats - such as a wooden steering wheel, or modern, full instrumentation on a carbon-look dashboard. Inside, the manufacturer has paid particular attention to the owner’s cabin. The 320 is powered by two outboard motors. The limited beam of 10 feet (3.05 m) allows the boat to be transported by road in certain countries such as the United States. The manufacturer ArrowCat, based in Clearwater (Florida), also offers a 420, again equipped with outboards.
