#0401 Solitaire Power Catamaran
Solitaire was commissioned by the happy owners of a previous LOMOcean design, the 11m, 40 knot power catamaran Aquavette.
Inspired by the performance and sea keeping of the smaller boat, the New Zealand based couple wanted a larger, extended family oriented boat whilst spending more time on the water, cruising, fishing and diving around the North Islands Coromandel peninsula, Great Barrier Island and beyond.
Although only 3m longer than Aquavette, Solitaire offers nearly three times the interior volume using an unusual interior arrangement that is almost Tardis-like; the boat feels much bigger than her exterior dimensions would suggest, with a huge master cabin with ensuite to port and two guest cabins to starboard that share the day head and shower.
Also quite novel is the aft location of the helm station in the saloon, which affords a view of all four corners of the boat from the very comfortable helm seat and allows the skipper who can often be isolated from the rest of the party on a flying bridge – to interact with those seated at the dinette directly in front of the helm, or in the adjacent galley space.
Twin Caterpillar C12s offer a heavy ship sprint speed of 30 knots, yet the boat has a range of over 500 nautical miles at 25 knots from her semi-displacement hull forms and that increases to over 1000 nautical miles at 9 10 knots. The boat is well equipped with generator set, water maker, air conditioning, dive compressor, night vision camera and entertainment systems; there aren’t too many toys left on the shelf to put on this boat…
