Specification & Inventory
Triple 8 is a fast, 50 ft center pod cruiser / racer catamaran, professionally maintained to the highest standard and fitted with the very best sails, hardware and rigging.
Full carbon composite construction built in the US in 2007. Triple 8 is lightweight and very strong. Cruising at speeds in the low 20 knots and with a top speed of over 27 knots, she is a delight to sail. Easily driven she needs very little sail to move at 10-15kts and make 240nm days at sea.
Vast deck space at 30 foot wide x 50 foot long, the unique central pod contains two queen berths and bathroom, sleeping up to 4 people. Full headroom plus plenty of storage - a very comfortable cruiser. An alternative interior plan is included. This has a chart table, small galley and salon table as well as 2 doubles and 4 single berths.
The carbon hulls, pod & curved crossbeams all unbolt for storage or shipping overseas. 888 was dismantled for transportation by truck and shipped to NZ from USA.
888 is a development of the Crowther Southern Ocean50 catamarans: Atmoshpere, Raw Nerve and Rongtdjuuu. She benefits from being the last and most evolved of the line. Rongtdjuuu’s design requirements were to be capable of Racing in Australia and NZ and based in New Caledonia. This required a strong and safe boat for these demanding sea conditions
A feature of the hull design are the bulbs in the bows and the v section forward giving lift and keeping bows up under load. The asymmetric carbon foils, made by the same company who makes the AC45 foils: Sterling Composites are very strong and light.
888 has the latest technology and is ready to sail shorthanded or fully crewed.
Winner of the SSANZ 2011 2 handed coastal series, and runner up ( to an Orma 60 ) in both the 2010 & 2011 NZ Coastal Classic 888 is a proven shorthanded and offshore capable catamaran.
