I'd expect the Outremer's immersion rate would be higher (in kg/cm).

So a boat might float a cm or two deeper. Is that really going to be the end of the world? Will insurance companies really notice? Will Queensland transport throw us in jail? Will the coroner really investigate us? Or is someone getting all worked up over nothing...

Tagging along as well - My short list is down to the L450S and the FP47. I'm told the first 47 hull wont hit US shores till Spring.

I love the idea of that dingy platform, but I wonder how heavy it is and how stable it is when you stand on it. It looks like something I think I saw from another company, so hopefully it's not a brand new mechanism.,

Re: NEW 47? ok, nice, but what's the diff' ??

I placed an order yesterday for the 47 New with March 2018 delivery La Rochelle.
The hydraulic platform included.
The dealer confirmed also a hydraulic gangway (although not mentioned on the FP price list) and I am waiting for specification (price 8500 excl VAT).
Hope it could be built into the construction somehow to hide it completely when not used.

Does anyone have experience with hydraulic gangway on FP catamarans?

EliGoo,

This is how your hydraulic gangway will most likely look like on your new FP47

Cotemar,

I very appreciate your reply.

Do you happen to know what dinghy is on the picture? I would like to replace the "standard" one with a central console and more power than 15HP.
The hydraulic platform supports up to 250kg, so I think a dinghy like this one on the picture would be a good choice (provided it is not too heavy).

Thank you very much for any advice.

Looks like a Grand G340EF

Nice boat, but it may not work for your FP47

The Problem being that you have a 6 person catamaran, so you need to be able to carry 6 people in your dinghy.

You need at least a 12' (3.65 meter) dinghy to support that many people.

You may be better off with a Highfield CL380

Thank you, Cotemar.
I may need davits in addition to hydr. platform for a 6 persons boat with console and max. supp. engine.
I will check the FP47 davits capacity.
