Presented at the Cannes show as a preview, this second powercat from Aventura Catamarans finally revealed her secrets during our test sail at La Grande-Motte, at the end of the International Multihull Show. Well-finished and displaying top-of-the-range comfort, this rather elegant motor catamaran is playing in the register of the oceanic trawler yacht. She is equally capable of some very varied programs... and to top that off, she is by far the cheapest powercat in this category.

Test location: La Grande-Motte, France
Conditions: Wind, westerly 15 to 20 knots slight to moderate sea

In the early 2000s, Aventura, a boatbuilder specializing in polyester composite construction, started out with sub-26-foot monohulls and small coastal camping catamarans from 20 to 28 feet, then coastal cruising boats. From the outset, prices were kept low. The positioning of “the cheapest boat in its category” became an integral part of the builder’s policy, and that is still upheld today. The following decade saw the shipyard move upmarket to models over 40 feet in length that were super-livable and comfortable, and designed for ocean cruising. Since 2015, naval architect Samer Lasta has been designing the Aventura, and this collaboration has made the brand a great success, establishing itself in the panorama of medium-scale multihull manufacturers. With an annual production exceeding fifty units, Aventura Catamarans is in fact just behind the leading large shipyards. Three sailing models are offered: the 34, the 37 and the 44. The first powercats appeared in 2016 with the 10 Power, available with an outboard or inboard drivetrain.
