HH Catamarans has been turning heads since 2012 with a line of sporty, high-tech boats that feature a luxury fit-out. What started off on the drawing board as a fast 48ft cruising cat has grown to 50ft in the building.
“One of the biggest reasons was the addition of a second helm station aft,” explained marketing manager
“That and, during the design review, we found we were able to increase sail efficiency by 6 per cent if we lengthened the hull.”
The lay-up is all carbon, with twin bulkhead helm stations and longskirted hulls. With a self-tacking jib and push-button controls at the helm station, she should be a breeze to sail short-handed.
Her accommodation all looks very elegant – dark teak contrasting with lighter fabrics. The saloon windows are huge, letting light gush in, with a semi-horseshoe galley to starboard, a navstation forward and dining table to port. There are configurations allowing for three or four cabins.
Morelli & Melvin’s design generally looks modern and aggressive (even if we question the aesthetics of the hard biminis above the helms). Tbc
