Great News for Thrill Seeking Multihull Enthusiasts!

Space, Style AND Speed

 

It is no secret that Multihulls are the fastest growing sector of the leisure yachting industry today. Within this sector there is a small but growing niche of clients who want space and domestic-style comforts for extended periods afloat, but who still want to enjoy the thrill of sailing very fast when they are in the mood to put the pedal down. Historically there was a pretty stark choice between cruising and performance cats, but modern lightweight, high-modulus construction materials and techniques have more and more enabled both of these apparently opposing requirements to be met in the same yacht.

We are thrilled to be given the option of marketing the stunning new TAG 60 and a Bermuda 77, both excellent examples of this new breed of fast, comfortable and beautiful big cats. Both are built in South Africa, which has long been at the forefront of bespoke catamaran construction.

TAG yachts are based on the Eastern Cape of South Africa. Specifically built as a high performance cruising catamaran, the all-carbon TAG 60 has been designed with ease of sailing in mind and with hydraulic joystick controls. Every function is easily managed from the duel helm stations by the Captain. Despite the high-volume interior and luxurious saloon, the TAG 60 will thrill those who push her to her full potential  -in the right conditions she can lift a hull and will comfortably cover over 300 miles a day! 

The Bermuda 77 was conceived by Schionning Designs, one of the most respected designers of performance cats in the southern hemisphere.  Built from wood composite, she left a small carbon footprint when she was constructed and will continue to do so when she is under way:  her tiny 110hp engines will drive her along at up to 15 knots. The Bermuda 77 is built for fast, comfortable blue water sailing with superyacht features inside and out, yet with none of the usual complexities of maintenance or operation associated with a boat of this size.

Both of these yachts are currently being commissioned, after which sea trials are available for discerning clients. They are very welcome additions to the Ancasta Multihulls collection and we will keep you informed of their progress.
