Multihull Solutions has added the new Cora Cat 48 to its range after being announced as the shipyard’s exclusive Asia Pacific distributor.
The feature-packed family power catamaran is built by the prestigious PMG shipyard who have been building a number of Silent 60 yachts for the Luxury European Silent Yachts Group.
Adapted from the original Heliotrope 48, the Cora Cat 48 comprises a host of upgrades including a full interior and exterior redesign, new deck moulds and a huge suite of features.
The catamaran has been designed with an emphasis on functionality, safety and comfort and is ideal for weekend cruising or blue-water adventures with an outstanding long-cruise range of 1,500nm.
Philippe Guenat and naval architect Dr Albert Nazarov designed the Cora Cat 48 around the principles of space, pace and grace, and the result is an impressive catamaran that unites advanced construction techniques, traditional craftsmanship, high quality finishes and contemporary lines.
The Cora Cat 48 features a huge signature flybridge, which is larger than any in its category. Alongside generous cabins and a spacious galley, there is also ample deck space without compromising performance.
The Cora Cat 48 also has fast displacement hulls, which deliver effortless speed, high manoeuvrability and excellent fuel economy. The advanced vacuum-infusion hull construction technique reduces weight without compromising strength, making handling easy in all conditions. Her hulls are further strengthened by an extra layer of 5mm SORIC for chock and impact-resistant protection.
The Cora Cat 48 is not a production boat, so clients can make adaptions to suit their particular style and cruising needs.
PMG Shipyard was founded in 2004 as a privately held company with Swiss ownership and management. Strategically located by the sea on the eastern seaside of the Gulf of Thailand, the production site and offices are situated on a 20,800m2 facility with direct sea access and its own launching pier.
The company’s key management and technical team features a strong European presence with world-renowned members of the advisory board, allowing the shipyard to develop technically advanced, stylish, practical, economical and safe yachts. Key management figures includes NASA astronaut Michael Lopez Alegria and Raphael Domjan who is founder of Planet Solar. PMG’s technical board provides new developments and contacts with renowned universities and solar research centres, continuously strengthening their expertise.
Multihull Solutions has ordered the first Cora Cat 48 to be on display at the 2023 Australian boat shows, and the first Australian order was taken following the 2022 Sanctuary Cove Boat Show. The company is fielding strong interest in the model from power catamaran enthusiasts across the region. The next available Cora catamaran is available for delivery during 2023.
