Motorboat & Yachting - - Southampton Boat Show Preview -

Bavaria’s French-built power cata­ma­ran will be on dis­play at the show for the first time. As cats go it’s a stylish thing with a great mix of liv­ing spa­ces on deck in­clud­ing a fab­u­lous fore­deck with op­pos­ing seat­ing and a ta­ble and steps that lead up to a large sun­pad above the wheel­house.

The cock­pit is mas­sive, with seat­ing on all sides, and leads into a saloon that is bright and spa­cious and fea­tures a well-equipped gal­ley ad­ja­cent to a cosy dinette.

For owner-run boats the three-cabin lay­out’s mas­sive master suite will ap­peal, but if there’s an eye on char­ter the four cabin al­ter­na­tive is bound to prove pop­u­lar. The stan­dard Volvo Penta D4 225hp engines should be good for at least 20 knots flat out but drop the speed back to a sin­gle digit cruise and a range of over 1,000nm is likely to be achiev­able.

The colour scheme is in line with the Ger­man yard’s mono­hull mod­els

The fore­deck is a fan­tas­tic loung­ing space with di­rect ac­cess to the fly­bridge
