Designed by the young French designer François Perus who has talked a lot about himself with successful innovative projects, the C-Cat 48 was designed to sail the sea in safety, comfort, and speed with a family crew.
The C-C at 48, follows the same philosophy of C-Cat 37 and incorporates the main concepts: the cockpit protected by a large bimini and fully closable for pleasant outdoor livability, the cockpit and dinette on the same floor, divided only by a large sliding door to have a single large open space living room.
The manoeuvres of the C-Cat 48 are made particularly easy by the double stern wheelhouse, with all deck equipment immediately available to the helmsman, for total control of the sails without leaving the cockpit. This solution makes the boat really manageable by only one person both on sailing and for mooring.
Navigation is made pleasant, safe, and easy thanks to the net high on the water, which together with the light displacement, favours the passage on the wave. The solution that cancels the typical blows in the hull of the heavier cat.
The relationship between sail surface and displacement has been carefully designed to place the C – Cat 48 at the top of the performance cruiser category.
Modern and efficient, the C-Cat 48 is equipped with movable scimitar drifts, with a partial downforce effect and the adoption of an internal wheelhouse (optional).
Many construction options, however, start from a very high standard that provides a laminated sandwich structure infused with multiaxial fabrics and epoxy-vinyl matrix. The bulkheads shall be composite with carbon-reinforced spaces.
The boat interiors are proposed as the larger sisters in two highly customizable versions: Antigua structured for life on board sportily comfortable with solutions that keep it lighter, and S.Barth more luxurious, with all the amenities for those who love to feel at home on a boat.
The launch of the first unit is scheduled for June 2021 and will be exhibited at the Cannes and Genoa boat shows.
