The AB 32 is an high performance ocean-going power catamaran with spacious, easy living comfort at its best and with extraordinary fuel efficiency. Successful design studio ‘Albatross Marine Design’ has developed our new design AB32 power cat as a budget coastal weekender for tropics, perfect for family or for running small charter business. The result is an exceptional design, including large spaces and facilities normally only found in larger and more expensive catamarans of 35-40 ft range. This power cat is stable, reliable and is able to meet a wide variety of customer needs.
The feature of the hull shape: it allows twin 75 until 250HP engines to be installed. The boat’s hull is optimized for range of semi-planning speeds 17-30 kts but can be used successfully at planning speeds. Measures have been taken to provide softness of ride and minimization of wave/spray making – by increased deadrise in front half of bottom, spray-rails and chine flats profile. The first prototype tested boat with twin FNM HPE 200 diesels with shaft drives makes easily 28 kts of cruising speed and 32 knots max speed at full load condition (version D heavy weight finished and full optional boat) in a rough condition of sea with waves and wind. The prototype has demonstrated very good performance and comfort in seaway. The central weight placement of engines, fuel and water to produce balanced movement and avoid pitching, the boat cut waves without bumping, thanks also to the perfect attention to design in length to beam ratios and minimum hull resistance to laminar-flow. All those factors contribute to the vessel's high quality sea keeping performance and comfort with a neutral and natural balance and an exceptional fuel efficiency.
