Excess 11, an all-new design for a master size
The Excess brand Beneteau Group, after launching in Cannes the models 12 and 15, launches the smallest boat in the range and one of the smaller cruising catamarans on the market, the Excess 11. If the first two models placed in water they had the hulls derived from Lagoon projects (another of the Beneteau group brand), in this case it is a project conceived by VPLP Design studio with Nauta Design interior, entirely from scratch.
FOR SHIP OWNER
The choice of length, with an overall of 11.33, is not accidental. The Excess 11 in fact wants to be a catamaran intended to use mainly a master and it is also on this metric band that potential new owners are approaching to the world of catamarans. Stable, maneuverable with simplicity and with a good ratio weight / sail area, this 11 meters has the objective to be an ideal medium for a comfortable cruising.
PULSE LINE VERSION
Going into the details of the project, the construction site in addition to the standard version proposes a sail plan with increased and the difference in terms of horses is substantial: upwind Pulse version offers 85sqm against 77, to consider whether the goal is to have a also in the boat snappy tunes. The hulls are characterized by a fairly pronounced redan just above the waterline. A classic double solution with a dual function: to cut the water holding the driest bridge in case of sea formed and increase the volumes of the interior.
The deckhouse is completely overview, the arrangement of the maneuvers is designed not to disturb the aft living area with a series of solution to bring the postponements of sheets in the outer zones.
At the stern is also support for a possible tender.
