These are common staff I see on most of the live aboard boats. Breadmaker or toaster doesn't really weight much..
With hulls 12,5:1 , you will certainly be fast, no doubt. But when you say that you have a 3 full queen size bed, either yr understanding of "full queen size" is different than mine (or generally accepted standards) or yr boat is at least 65 ft or more..
(Queen bed size in US standards is 80"X60", 60"X12,5=19 meter if the beds are installed at the largest part of the hull ???)

Just by curiosity, what boat are you sailing ?

Cheers

Seriously, how many cat's do you know of that have the beds at the waterline? Ours are at bridgedeck level, and in fact are BIGGER than queen beds - standard width, but longer. I'm tall.

We carry most of that stuff, except a few bits we really don't need.

The boat is an Oram 44C, we cruise at around 6-6.5 tonnes.

The boats like FP, Lagoon, etc with "U" shaped and relatively larger hulls have the beds slightly above the water level and very good load carrying ability, but they have other problems..
As opposed to yours , they are slow, particularly in light winds..

I can climb a couple of steps for the sake of better performance, but I don't like the beds under the bridge; just a personal opinion.. Oram's are otherwise very good boats,if you can keep them light..

Re: TS42 Catamaran designed by Christophe Barreau

The TS 42 looks very nice, but really no room inside.
In my Catathai 43 (only 5 tons light!) there is 3 real queen bed, and if she's not as fast as the TS 42, she runs 8kts at reaching with 5 kts of wind...
Does the TS42 really runs 10kts at 45° of true wind with 25kts of wind? almost 30° off apparent wind with the waves expected ? hard to believe! Almost the performance of a trimaran ORMA 60ft that cost more than 2 million €uros...

Re: TS42 Catamaran designed by Christophe Barreau

Hello

I have been looking at the catathai 42 also. It is announced on the web site as 7.5 tons light. What changes did you make to go to 5 tons light? Carbon?

Best

Re: TS42 Catamaran designed by Christophe Barreau

Nothing so expensive! And the 42 has too much room for me
My boat is only the "old" 40 GC with long tail (sorry, I'm bad in english!)
There is almost the same inside space than the Catana 42, and this is realy enough for me and my wife! The two rear berth are 1,70m wide (67inch) and the "small" front one is 1,50m(59inch) and 2m long(79inch).
More, no polyester but only Vinylester to avoid osmosis...
For me the good one! Even if very simple inside

Re: TS42 Catamaran designed by Christophe Barreau

I know this is an old thread but I was looking at the TS42 and the reason I can't see it being a cruising boat is, as far as I can tell, there is no door...

Can you imagine cruising around but not being able to lock up when you go ashore?

Not exactly the same size but some gunboats have the same config, with main enclosures coming down the hulls, obviously not great for liveaboard in northern Canada though

I saw the ts 42 in Martinique last winter . I t is a fantastic boat , fast as all get out with carbon mast and boards I spoke to one of the charter workers and he said it is one of the most popular boats they have . A local sailmaker was on board one (it might have been a 50) and they did the run from le Marin to Rodney Bay in about an hour .That is a nominal 25 nautical miles . what it is not is a live aboard but so what, neither is a melges or a TP52 or all sorts of other sport boats. About the door that is not there, that is one of the real outside the box design ideas . It keeps the weight down to nothing and allows maximum space flexibility. The access to the hulls is through a water tight lockable hatch .
