SIG45 High Performance Catamaran Sailing Fast

April 8, 2012 by No Comments

Enjoy this video of the SIG45 sailing fast in pleasant conditions in the Bay of Cannes. The boat is very fast, and very smooth. The speed is amazingly easy to achieve. The boat regularly sails faster than the wind. In this video, the top speed on a broad reach is about 19-20 knots, in about 18 knots of wind. Upwind speed is between 9 and 11 knots. Note that there is virtually no spray and that the boat stays totally dry and calm even at these speeds. The boat has a very comfortable cruising interior which sleeps 6 in three double cabins. In addition there are two heads, a large galley, dinette and nav station. This boat is like an AC45 (America’s Cup catamaran) for the family man! The boat is designed by the same team (VPLP) that designed the BMW Oracle America’s Cup Trimaran. For more information see Number 2 is currently being built by Westerly Marine in California.
