Quad 44 Solar/Electric Catamaran

I'm starting this thread (with admin permission) to introduce the Quad 44, a unique new type of solar/electric cruising catamaran. The Quad 44 is the culmination of a 10-year R&D effort to create a cruising catamaran without the flaws and compromises of traditional designs, and without the reliability and maintenance problems of diesel engines.

We've succeeded in creating a catamaran that will exceed the performance and specifications of traditional boats in seven key areas:

Much larger accommodation space with quieter cabins
Improved hull performance (more energy efficient / higher speed)
Eliminates diesel reliability and maintenance problems
Boarding and disembarking is much easier and safer
Smoother, more comfortable passage in rough weather
Much better visibility from enclosed forward helm station
Storage for 2 dinghies, with easier and safer boarding

Most of these benefits are the result of the boat's innovative raised-cabin configuration. For more details check out the web site at www.QuadMarine.com

Re: Quad 44 Solar/Electric Catamaran

I dunno. The Overblue 44 a is similar hull like design, but with a mobile home on top. It's ugly as sin. The Quad 44 looks nice albeit a bit like a space capsule on two hulls. The round portals could be one long rectangular tinted window, and sliding glass doors on each side. That would reduce the "spacecraft" look. You should show more video with the optional sail. Using sails could turn props for additional battery juice.
