Fast, blue water ready sailing catamarans can cross oceans without the dependency of extremely large fuel tanks. As catamaran performance is a fine balance between displacement and righting moment, ultra light weight building methods and materials are applied to reduce the weight and maximize safe sail power handling. Catamaran bridge deck layouts provide for ample living space only found at much larger monohulls.
Long distance cruising is traditionally planned from fuel station to fuel station. Starting mid 2016, enserinkdesign.com is involved in a new design project for an 80' catamaran, featuring an all new renewable energy concept. Regeneration under sail by using the yachts propellers and electric motors, using the massive energy storage capacity of pressurized hydrogen gas, will provide true fuel independence to cruise the oceans.
