Look at the coolness I came across.

High performance catamaran - Scape Yachts

Pretty sweet. Reminds me of a Maine Cat, but set up differently.

That is a SWEEEET looking 40 foot cat. Much more refined than a Maine Cat 41.

Re: Look at the coolness I came across.

I dont want sail such a Cat on high seas... this is a boat for coastal cruising.

If a big wave hits these huge windows, one can start to pray to God and beg for mercy to survive. Too risky. And probably too hot inside... did the owner want a "winter garden" to plant his tomatoes ?

Why do boat designers not learn from "good seamanship" ?? And why they lack of respect for the power of mother nature ??

Keep away your fingers from such risky boats I would like to say. Coolness has nothing to do on high seas !! LIve in big cities to present yourself as "cool and hip".

Re: Look at the coolness I came across.

Look VERY heavy in boatshow trim. Only floating just below WL. There is a new Maine cat 38 in the works. The 30 is an OK boat as a weekender day charter boat. Would rather have a decent cabin if buying a 40' boat.

Re: Look at the coolness I came across.

I'm not sure what market they are after, and I am not sure if the front section window by the mast closes off or not. Strange, but interesting design. I like it, not that it would suit our needs, but interesting none the less.

I see that they have drains in the salon floor, so apparently it is designed to take water over the bow and into the salon. I can't tell if it's designed to let the water run straight off the back, but it doesn't look like it.

Re: Look at the coolness I came across.

A neighbor in marsh harbor had one of these and gave me a tour. The window does close in the front, and the steering station is enclosed while maintaining visibility. Great lounging space up, with the berths in the hull. Dagger boards rather than mini keels, and the owner said he had gotten it up to some pretty high speeds. He also said scaoe only makes a handful of these each year.

Re: Look at the coolness I came across.

interesting, looks as if the P/S hulls have waterproof? splashproof doors.
so its a cross between the open deck cats and the more common bridge type. Protected access but not full bridge? Sure has the topside weight of a full bridge.

not sure about winch placement on either side of the wheel - how are the lines handled? Seems as if they would seriously impede movement.

It looks like the lines come up into the steering console from underneath, and so will not impact movement around the cockpit

Re: Look at the coolness I came across.

yes, indeed, the full size image shows the apparent exit holes in the side of the console.
not sure I like the idea of lines running hidden for a significant distance - any one know what they are for?.

Sounds like they had some serious rigging problems, doesn't mean the hull isn't designed for bluewater.

Umm, let's hope they first understand why they had so many halyard failures. Maiden voyage August 31 2015 so all lines brand new?

Going abit deeper in Abigale's story:

"Three days of wet. Leaking hatches and ferocious seas has resulted in a very wet boat. But as many would say “that’s boating!”

Sounds like they have had some teething problems.
