Class 6 is the only catamaran to offer SPINE CONCEPT. This is a third central hull that acts as a wave piercing device. You can position the mast wherever you want on this carbon spine. As any racing catamaran we moved mast aft on a central position compared with Charter oriented catamarans. There are clear advantages to moving the mast back :
– A much longer usable living space forward of the mast (about 30% more than that of similar yachts).
– A perfect view when seated in front of the mast.
– A better balance of the yacht in motion.
– A smaller main sail but larger front sails. Therefore it is easier to handle for a couple.
Except for what comes out of mold, ALL LAYOUT & EQUIPMENT is custom. The owner is driving since the beginning of building process.
As today we have 2 Class 6 :
