Got some more info on development and changes to the latest :-
40 Foot Catamaran
Each Admiral 40' is custom-built to clients' individual specifications.
1. One of our more innovative recent moves was to design and fit a fuel
tank that can be fully removable. The capacity is now 380 lt fresh water
and a 380 lt diesel
tank. The access and area around the tank has also improved.
2. We are now utilizing a 19 inch LCD display with DVD
on a swivel bracket next to the nav station instead of the fixed screen
. This gives the operator more versatility in terms of positioning the screen
stocks have upgraded to 2 inch schedule 80 stainless steel
4. The helm
seat has been redesigned, we have reduced the base bar that occasionally scuffed the back of your legs, and have brought the back rest further forward making the seat more comfortable.
5. The steering
bar has been reinforced at the point loading position of the auto pilot bracket to insure that there is no shear.
6. We have added an additional 1100 quad axel mat on the join lines taking the layup
to 4725g/sq meter to prevent hairline cracks. ( 1100g/sq meter over the designer
7. The keels have been reinforced with an additional lay up, taking the lay up to over 9000g/sq meter. (some 3000g/sq meter over the designer
8. The introduction
of vinyl cladding on all the cabin
bulkheads has softened the interior
9. After considerable design work we are now incorporating a galley storage
box above the counter top over the port hull
. This unit can house the microwave or other act as additional storage
lights have now been placed on three individual switches allowing more versatile usage of the saloon
11. Engine plumbing
now includes exhaust
goose necks, as well as siphon breaks and strainers. This will ensure longer life of the impeller as well as reduce risk of water back siphoning into the engine
12. Hinged head
boards with sound proofing have also been added allowing for easier access to the steering
Available as extras:
1. A sturdy sky light grab rail over the sky lights.
2. A large horizontal grab rail the width of the cockpit
door, which ties in with the vertical grab rail at the cockpit
