The Comet Cat 37 was born to offer to an owner “evolved in sailing” a perfect boat for the ocean cruise, with high performance without sacrificing space and comfort that only a catamaran can offer.
The Comet Cat 37 is the first work of a range that includes 3 other larger models designed by Marc Lombard, is a concentrate of innovations that, in the ambition of the shipyard, it will be “the point of reference” to the market in its category.
At the base of the hull design, lines innovative, thin and with little wetted surface, promise benefits as long as you respect the displacements and to be able to withstand a powerful sail plan in comfort and safety; for this has been chosen sandwich construction and the infusion technique with the use of epoxy-vinyl resin and fabrics quadraxial. The weight / sail area is by far the best in its class.
To concentrate the weight, it was decided to group the plants, and move the engines, while encouraging performance in the maneuver under sail, bound always catamarans, the rudders were located more aft as possible. Even the life raft ‘was housed in a forward position under the seat aft of the cockpit locker accessible from a dual opening always accessible. The sail plan, such as the anchor immediately forward of the deckhouse
contributes to the weight concentration and provides a set back of the mast without stifling the size of the mainsail, the real engine of the Cat.
The hulls are thin and high on the water, to reduce the wetted surface and a cockpit at 65-70 cm from the waterline to prevent the annoying impact of the waves on the bottom of the boat in rough seas.
