Catamaran Motorsailer type Commuter 72 'built in 2001, according to Jim Antrim plans.
The hulls are made of aluminum construction Marinalu to Raiatea (French Polynesia and the composite structure to sites Triboulat Gilles (Raiatea, Gilles Triboulat Shipyard).

The composite structure is balsa sandwich (platform) and Divinycell PVC foam (roof and beams). Large carbon reinforcements surround all areas of solicitation.

The epoxy resin, recommended by the architect comes from ONE COMPOSITE California (US supplier ships the America's Cup). The composite parts were performed under vacuum.

This highly innovative catamaran was designed at the request of current owner, who wanted at once a reliable boat and marine and energy consumption reduced.
The gamble has paid off with this engine sailing: its slender hulls allow excellent penetration into the waves, whatever the weather, his wing of 70 m² and can be maneuvered very easily from 15-20 knots of wind is enough to move the boat.

The boat was equipped and furnished for use in charter. But he has hardly ever been used in this configuration.
Its owner has sailed to Polynesia to New Caledonia and New Zealand.
The catamaran has just returned from New Zealand.


Two inboard motors of 85 hp John DEERE 2007 each (1300 and 900 hours)
