Coolboats to admire in Cruising Anarchy Posted December 10, 2013 What's wrong with an average 10-12 knot cruise speed in almost all conditions in a catamaran trawler concept? Much better than you would get in a standard trawler. Hell even the cruising king, Dashew, 64, 78, 90 ft motorboat passage makers are designed to average 10-12 knts? Remember we are talking catamaran trawler, not full on power cat. Results from the latest ARC show the top boats only averaging 10 or so? Is that not fast enough... Ohh wait I just saw your user name.. My bad.. Its a different design as well but I'll take the comments... Designed for that 10-12 knot average speed sweet spot and influenced by a little of the old and new... Let me know what you think... For a 34 yr old with a dream and a passion?? A 52' cat will average 10-12 knots? It sure as hell better average that. Otherwise what's the point?
