Real World Performance
Class 6 is designed without compromises to combine safety, performance and comfort.
Fast by design
Class 6 is designed to allow a couple to enjoy fast and easy sailing. The boat does not need to push its enveloppe to sail fast. Our naval architects have conceived the boat to be naturally light and rapid. Class 6 is very efficient in light air and its speed gives it stability and comfort (the bota doesn’t bob around).
Performance = Security
The best way to escape bad weather is raw speed. Class 6 is able to achieve 300 miles with constant wind to get out of trouble. Our slim racing hulls sport a large 50cm flare above the water line to combine the comfort of interior space with unprecedented speed.
The number one factor that makes Class 6 an athlete. At 14.5T light displacement, we offer today the lightest 63ft catamaran with CE certificate. Our shipyard near Riga uses top class engineering technique, vaccum forming moulds and carbon skeletons to produce a light and quick machine.
Slim asymetrical flared hulls offer stunning performances. Douglas Schickler and David Tagliapietra from ST Yachts Design did an amazing job to design the boat structure and optimise production processes.
We propose two masts for Class 6. Performance is a Carbon Rotative mast with furling boom option. Performance is the best compromise for speed and easiness. We want you to sail fast and easy without asking crew to help you for most of the manoeuvres. That explains the Carbon Rotative mast to position the boom and mast aligned with the wind for easy reefing. That explains the furling boom (manual or hydraulic). That explains the choice for no sleeve Gennaker but all furling front sails.

RACE is built to win. Race is more exclusive with more length and extra Carbon layers to have Class 6 flying on one hull. Race is also package with extra Bowsprint for XL Spi/Gennaker. You maximize power for those who like to win. We will work with our official partners NORTH SAIL Med and DELTA VOILE France to propose you the most suitable solution upon your program. We will pay attention to the rating of the races you plan to attend and match the sails accordingly.

Easy to manage
Once again, the exclusive Spine Concept uses a smaller mainsail and larger forward sails. Front sails are really easy to manage on furlers and even better with electric or hydraulic drums. Hydraulic is lighter and much faster when rolling Code Zero, CodeD, Gennaker… The main sail will be the last to be adjusted and reefing is easier as we carry less m2 than traditional catamarans. As a fast sailing catamaran pays attention to upwind performance we carry huge Genoa with 12% angle (sheets are inside shrouds on roof top) that is not self tacking to go 115% recovering mast. For self tacking, you have the Solent that will do the perfect job when breeze is coming
Carbon re-inforced / “Performance” version
Using carbon re-inforcement in strategic structural elements allows us to dramatically reduce the weight of the boat and increqse performance. Carbon is not only ideal to save weight, this is the best way to make the yacht strong as a rock. Everything on the hull is structural, making the boat very rigid.
• Carbon mast pilar,
• Carbon longitudinal beam (34 layers on center on Spine),
• Carbon longitudinal roof and bimini reinforcement,
• Carbon reinforced bulkheads x 4
Carbon 100% “Race” version
The Race version is full carbon with some Kevlar against impact. Resin is epoxy.
On wet area and about 30cm above waterline, Kevlar is used as first layer. This is today the best material to protect against impact. Kevlar is maintaining glass and foam together in the best way.
