Designed according to the very specific needs of a yacht for both private and owner's use, Magic Cat was designed in exactly the same way as a racing one-off. Her hulls were tank tested and the yard applied rigorous control over the materials and a strict analysis of the weights of all elements. The platform (hulls, beams and bridgedeck) were built in carbon fibre, and oven cured in a vacuum bag. Today such method is the expression of the most advanced technology for obtaining light and strong structures.
reover, Magic Cat's rig benefits directly from feedback gleaned from ocean racing. She has a spreaderless carbon fibre wing mast anchored on carbon chainplates (with Kevlar shrouds). All these parts were entirely made by the Multiplast yard.
The result, Magic Cat is one of the fastest cruising yachts in the world. She is capable of sailing faster than the true wind, reaching a speed of 20 knots in only 18 (33km/h) knots of wind. And the speedometer can often be seen beyond 25 knots (46km/h)._And in light airs, she is indecently fast thanks to the extremely controlled weight of the interior fittings and equipment that is obviously consequent on a vessel of this type. With just 5 knots (9km/h) of wind, the catamaran is capable of sailing at 9 knots (17km/h). Indeed, never before has a cruising yacht sailed so fast, and all that in total comfort and perfect safety.
