The Roger Hill-designed 14-metre power catamaran Ayana’s new owners plan to cruise from the Gold Coast, where she was built by Noosa Marine, back to their home waters of WA.

The custom power cat is a luxurious live-aboard vessel built to survey for day charters cruising Rottnest Island, Margaret River and the Swan River.

Ayana is a spacious three-cabin multihull with a versatile cockpit for entertaining or angling, a large saloon with dinette, galley, entertainment systems and large panoramic windows. The enclosed flybridge features the helm and an L-shaped lounge and dining table, while the aft deck is fitted with a davit for the vessel’s tender.

Designer Roger Hill said the list of ‘must haves’ was daunting for him as a designer and the team at Noosa Marine.


“The challenges involved weight control more than anything else. Ayana is a 14-metre superyacht. It probably has more fridges and freezers than any other 14-metre afloat!”

Weighing-in at 12 tonnes, Ayana’s planing hull will still achieve around 28 knots.

From briefing to completion, construction took just 13 months. Key to the build efficiency was the use of the pre-cut DuFLEX panel system from ATL Composites, said Hill.

“Using the ATL Composites DuFlex panel system is a great way to build a boat, particularly when it is embraced so well, as it was by this builder.”
