The Fusion 40 is a Lidgard design and is still in production.

Re: lidgard catamaran??

Yep sailed a few Lidgards. Of course they are all custom builds (even the fusion is fundamentally custom) so their presentation and performance etc is highly variable, but Lidgard is a good designer and most of his boats (mono and Multi) I have sailed have been good stylish designs with good fundamental attributes (bridgedeck clearance and the like), perform well and look good. Certainly he favours the good sailing boat, rather than the apartment on water design concept.

I haven't seen him around for a year or two, but his site is still up, so I am guessing he is still in business.
