The crusader catamaran is a luxury 17 metres motor sailor with a beam of 7.4 metres. The boat can also be produced as a 6.5 metre beam power catamaran, or could be produced using the same hull mould to provide an excellent sports fishing or commercial passenger boat. The combination of a foam-cored and engineered laminate structure has resulted in a light-weight hull, deck and expert structures which means excellent performance is achieved with relatively low fuel consumption. The motor sailor version achieves 19 knots (nominal) performance with only 220lp engines. These can be replaced with higher horsepower plants for foster speedo in the power version. The intent is to produce future versions of the hull using vacuum assisted resin transfer to further lighter the hull.
