Longreach Power Catamarans has launched its brand with 44- and 54-foot (13.5 and 16.5m) high performance models designed specifically for long distance coastal cruising and passage making in modern apartment living comfort. A new 36-foot (11m) model is also on the drawing board.
The Australia-based company’s focus is on a super-efficient hull shape and modern raked bow design, to ensure long range motoring with very low fuel consumption. Cruising range is in excess of 3,000 nautical miles with the standard long range fuel tanks – ideal for venturing around the top end of Australia or into the South Pacific.
A hydrofoil package is available for the High-Performance version of the Longreach 44, offering speeds in excess 30 knots for fast commuting.
