Power Cruiser Catamaran AB32 Charter

   

The AB 32 is an high performance ocean-going power catamaran with spacious, easy living comfort at its best and with extraordinary fuel efficiency. Successful design studio Albatross Marine Design has developed our new design AB32 power cat as a budget coastal all round weekender, perfect for family or for running small charter business.

The result is an exceptional design, including large spaces and facilities normally only found in larger and more expensive catamarans of 35-40 ft range. This power cat is stable ,reliable and is able to meet a wide variety of customer needs.

The feature of the hull shape: it allows twin 75 until 250HP engines to be installed. The boats hull is optimized for range of semi-planning speeds 17-34 kts but can be used successfully at planning speeds. Measures have been taken to provide softness of ride and inimization of wave/spray making by increased deadrise in front half of bottom, spray-rails and chine flats profile. The boat tested with twin FNM HPE 200 diesels with shaft drives makes easily 30 kts of speed at full load condition (version D heavy weight finished and full optional boat) in a rough condition of sea with waves and wind, demonstrated very good performance and comfort in seaway

This is a successful result of a detailed analysis of resistance-speed that has been performed using different methods. Methods for monohulls known as Groot (semidisplacement) and Savitski (planning) were applied adding hull interaction factors from Muler Graf and Doubrovski. Methods of resistance prediction for catamarans developed by Molland (round bilge) and Australian Maritime College (sharp chine) have been used.

An important feature of this design is the shallow draft of AB32 that enables operation in shallow areas and makes picturesque islands and remote beaches easily accessible. The boat can be beached during tide P-brackets are studied to protect the propellers, also from fishing nets and floating debris.
