The hull, decks and the pilot house will be built of epoxy resin using a Kevlar / E-Glass hybrid with CoreCell foam. The structure designed to meet DNV standards, has strategic carbon fiber reinforcements for additional stiffness and light weight. With twin 500 HP engines she will be capable of over 25 knots lightship and 21 knots fully fueled and loaded. This boat has an impressive cruising range of 1800 miles.

The interior will be carefully appointed "'Herreshoff' Style" and equipped with all the commodities for luxurious cruising.

The vessel is under construction and scheduled to be launched end of 2006.

CASSIOPEIA PROJECT

The latest project to move from the drawing board to construction is a 67 long and 34 wide sailing yacht being built for a private owner. Multihull Technologies will fabricate this performance catamaran utilizing lightweight materials and high tech processes.

State of the art equipment and luxurious accommodations will make this a premier cruising yacht. Designed to meet the specific requests of the owner, this catamaran will be used for blue water sailing, able to visit any port of interest.


SEQUOIA SCHOONER PROJECT

Designed in collaboration with Nigel Irens, and built with Walter Schurtenberger, the Rustic Schooner was conceived by Tim Ainley as a "Classic Catamaran". Walter and Tim built the record breaking 80 ft. racing catamaran "Formula Tag" "ENZA New Zealand" with Nigel Irens in 1983, and the team is together again to build this exciting new boat. Sea kindliness and aesthetics are her principle design mandates, with a relatively simple economic build. Accommodated with twin double staterooms, galley, saloon and Captain's quarters, "SEQUOIA" will be used for Day Charter and subsequently Term Charter in the Turks and Caicos Islands where Tim has been sailing for the last 17 years.

 

Ultimately she will be taken around the world.

 


DRACO PROJECT

Key West, Florida - December 16th, 2002

DRACO LAUNCHED

Multihull Technologies launched their newest custom catamaran yacht, "Draco", on December 6, 2002. Draco is the newest edition to the Constellation Yachts family of luxury multihulls designed and built by Walter Schurtenberger. The massive 65' Draco features twin 1,400 HP Caterpillar 3412 diesel engines powering Hamilton Jet drives and cruises at 30 knots.

Draco is built entirely from epoxy resin composites in the Multihull Technologies facility where it has occupied the large center bay during assembly and finish. Draco's "stealth bomber" design theme and massive jet drives protruding from the back of her hulls regularly caused traffic along Shrimp Road to stop for a better look.

All Constellation Yachts are custom designs tailored to the unique desires of clients. Each one is an exercise in state-of-the-art composites construction where strength-to-weight ratios are maximized and materials life span is key. "We do not use any polyester composites because no matter how beautiful you make something from that material it will not perform or last like epoxy, so we cater to a more informed client base that knows the difference", says Walter Schurtenberger, President of Multihull Technologies and designer of Draco.

Draco features include accommodations for six between a massive master suite and two well-appointed guest cabins, push button hydraulic tender bay, state-of-the-art electronics, remote control docking systems, and a no-holds-barred bridge saloon. Even Draco's tender is a exercise in speed and luxury. Looking into Draco's engine rooms, the massive Caterpillar diesels coupled to the Hamilton Jet drives by giant drive shafts makes the viewer well aware that this machine is built to go fast for a very long time.
