Life on the ocean wave

The boat's appearance above the water has also been subjected to careful design, presenting an efficient aerodynamic shape to be 'slippery' to cross winds. Even the bowsprit at the front is telescopic to allow for easier docking. Fully laden, the 14 metre boat is half the weight of conventional catamarans of the same length.

"Lady Bounty"With all these design features, it is no wonder that the yacht caused a sensation at the last Southhampton Boat Show. Dr Bligh has given the design to the boat yard that built his boat, Multimarine Composites, and they are already halfway through building the next one, with potentially five more orders on the way.
