Isara Catamarans

This new catamaran line was just recently brought to my attention. I did not see any mention of it here on the forums, but when I googled it I came up with a number of sites,...a few:
Roel de Groot Design - Isara 50 catamaran

ISARA YACHTS - Luxury Sailing

New Isara 50 catamaran. For private pleasure or charter.Luxury meets practicality

I suspect so as this friend of mine, Robert Noyce is involved in some manner....likely connecting that boat yard with the design group.

Re: Isara Catamarans

I got some notice that it might be at the new spring show in Annapolis MD. I'll have to see if that's true. If so I may go down and have a look as there is an old friend sailmaker I want to talk to as well.

You are correct. There is one scheduled to be at the spring boat show.

Re: Isara Catamarans

I have noticed on the most recent offerings of modern sailing cats, no more propane. On this cat use of induction cook top and electric BBQ. Somewhere on this forum a year ago, I stated my next refit would include the dumping of all propane appliances for electric. I wonder if this cat will be powered for propulsion by a hybrid diesel-electric drive system? Electric galley goes hand in hand with diesel-electric drive.

The way of the future if both concepts are employed together IMHO. And of course, a electric powered dinghy.

Re: Isara Catamarans

This is all I can find on the first one......


























Looks like it is going to need some custom designed davits for the dink.

I've emailed them directly to ask....just to confirm their latest plans.

I used to be in the multihull business in Annapolis,...in fact one of the very first such (Chesapeake Catamaran, Inc), and I still live reasonable close by. We were the original importer of the Fountain/Pajot catamarans that have now grown so popular, and that this company Bayside Yachts now deals with. But that was a number of years ago 1978-1990

Now I'm just trying to do a little designing and consulting on cruising/exploration/liveaboard vessels,.... ...even looking at monohulls again

Outdoor Cooking, and not all-electric

By this do you mean an electric cooktop embedded into the counter...like many household units?? I would ask that you give serious thought to this. Propane is not really that bad, and its available everywhere in the world.

And you are not requiring a generator to be running to cook a little something. Besides ask any 'chef' in this world if he would cook with electric....just not a controllable 'flame'.

I might suggest one makes accomodations for 'outdoor cooking', like on this power cat. There are many times you don't want to smell up the whole vessel with cooking indoors.

There was a time I was very big on these diesel electric concepts (and I still harbor the desire to see them perfected), but there are a number of horror stories associated with early deployment of these systems. BEWARE, do lots of reading on the subject.

I have been doing a lot of research, even devoted a section of my forum for the collection of experiences and links. Integration of systems

I have designed and built electric vehicles and firmly feel the hybrid diesel-electric propulsion system complimented by a stout 48 volt propulsion/house bank of batteries is the way of the future. The BBQ on the railing will be a common, insulated, 1500 watt unit, and yes, induction cook tops. They bring water to boil faster than calrod or gas, and are very controllable. You ever notice the cooking segments on TV, they all use the induction type hot plate. So easy to clean up as the cooking surface doesn't get hot, the only drawback is your glass/pyrex cookware won't work. Plus, energy efficient. With a large capacity 48 volt battery bank you can do all your electric galley work without running a gen set, and since it is 48 volts, the amperage draw on the DC side of the inverter is 1/4 of what it would be at 12 volts. If solar isn't enough for daily needs, that is where the light and efficient DC diesel charging gen-set earns it keep, being able to be fully loaded during run times, pumping 52 volts at 350 amps into the propulsion/house battery bank. No need for a partial loaded, heavy AC gen-set since with an inverter that would be redundant.

Re: Isara Catamarans

I saw this yacht at the Annapolis Sail boat show this weekend and it is a game changing design. The sense of space and light was amazing - they have used a different method with an arch which has opened up the space and it has the best views of any catamaran I have been on.

The finish was high end, with the feel of a luxury apartment. The appliances were Miele and I was envious of the kitchen - you could not call it a galley. It was more like a New York apartment than a boat.

The model was 4 cabin with each cabin feeling spacious with its own bathroom. They customize each catamaran and you can have 1, 2, or 3 cabins in each hull.

This was an impressive catamaran.
