Articles Catamarans New Models — 30 August 2012

An unprecedented combination of performance, elegance and comfort

We are delighted to announce the successful launch, sea trial and 1200 mile delivery of the latest SIG45. This extraordinary yacht offers a sailing experience which combines the thrill of an America’s Cup 45 foot catamaran with genuine luxury. Speeds which have until now been reserved for racing boats are effortlessly reached by a yacht with comfortable cruising accommodation. On the second day of sailing, the boat reached 22.3 knots in just 16 knots of breeze, with the new owner at the helm. In its first week, the new SIG45 exceeded 25 knots in flat water, with sustained speeds of 23.5.

What makes this truly extraordinary is that these speeds were achieved on a cruising boat with air-conditioning, electric flush heads, and barely a drop of water on deck. At 20 knots, the owner’s guests continued their relaxed conversations as their magic carpet smoothly carried them to an idyllic anchorage at a similar speed to a powerboat, slicing through the chop without slamming or noise.
