New Catamarans - Dolphin 460

Dolphin Catamarans

Testimonials by Dolphin Owners

"

Delphine Lafitte, The Multihull Company's agent in France, organized a trip to the south of France where we were able to test sail each of the catamaran brands that we liked and this enabled us to very quickly decide on Catana as a fast, stylish cruising catamaran.

Performance

The Dolphin 460 is a performance cruising catamaran for serious sailors, designed to sail at least twenty percent faster than typical production catamarans. Under trade-wind conditions she will regularly average 200 to 230 miles a day. With her fine bows, high-bridge deck clearance, and dual dagger-boards she points high, runs fast, and will not slam or pound like charter designs. And she surfs, of course, like a Dolphin!

Many catamaran builders claim that their boats are fast, or point high, but you never back their claims with racing results. We are confident that a Dolphin 460 will regularly average between 8 and 11 knots while cruising in winds over 12 knots. One of our recent owners raced his Dolphin 460 (loaded with a generator and air conditioning, and every piece of cruising gear) from Clearwater, Florida, to Key West, and averaged 9 knots. He was first overall in the catamaran class. In a recent race in Brazil, one of our Dolphin 460ís average 11 knots for a solid 12 hours. Of course, while surfing, the Dolphin 460 often achieves speeds over 15 knots. But the true test of a performance cruising cat is her ability to sustain high average speeds, both upwind and reaching.

With her dual daggerboards, there is simply no question that a Dolphin 460 sails upwind and close reaches at considerably higher angles and speeds than similar size cruising cats with fixed keels.
