Advanced Racing Catamarans > DNA A-class catamaran

"DNA" Racing Catamaran designed and engineered  together with top sailors Pieter Jan Dwarshuis and Arno Terra off for  succes!

This has been one of the most challenging projects so far. With Pieter Jan and Arno firing requirements, cross sections and weight/volume distributions at us, it wasn't easy to keep all the "continuous curvature" constraints needed for a super fast hull in place.

Using thinkdesign, one of the most advanced surface modeling CAD programs around, was absolutely key in turning the design out well. Eventually, very little compromise was made towards the raw design objectives from these sailors. As racing titles have been won, and even more will follow, we're very proud to have worked on this project. Good winds to you guys!
