The Felci Design Catamaran 80 is an unprecedented project.
It is a super cruising catamaran, 24 meters long and about 12 meters wide, in which the naval architecture, the stylistic and functional design are the result of a long research and development work begun on the input of one of our affectionate owners and carried forward by our studio with great enthusiasm and desire to achieve new goals.
A great work of design and synthesis in which converge years of experience and a futuristic vision of the sailing boat. This is transformed, from a means of transport and entertainment, to which to combine also a comfortable life on board, in something different. In an entity almost completely autonomous, in which to live even long periods, as in a luxurious villa by the sea, with which it is however possible to easily (and quickly) change the scenarios.
Clearly the basic research is declined in new and more extensive formal and functional analysis, in search of new spaces of housing, comfort and privacy.
The interior is on three floors. The cabins and the kitchen at the lowest level, in the hulls; the living room in direct communication with the cockpit at deck level and the fly, large terrace located 5 meters above sea level. Many are the episodes that allow you to find these separate and welcoming environments.
As the first distinctive element, coming from the outside, there is immediately the cockpit, semi covered and characterized by large stairs to climb on the walk around towards the bow. To starboard a luxurious relaxation area with sofas, convertible into a dining or breakfast area. This area is the fulcrum from which to access both inside the boat and to the raised fly bridge.
In direct connection, at the same level, we find the living room equipped with an exclusive sofa area for evenings spent relaxing inside, a large table for dinner in 12 and a study with sea views.
From a spiral staircase in carbon and teak, you can climb on the fly, where there are areas with different functionalities, for example the sunbathing area with large cushions and equipped with a “vanishing” Jacuzzi, or the command area of the boat, from which to control sailing and motor navigation.
Also at deck level, at the bow of the saloon, there is an additional outdoor sitting area that allows a pleasant privacy even when you are moored in the marina with the stern at the dock.
Note the possibility of direct access to the two very large twin cabins, with king-size double beds arranged transversally and directly in contact with the environment thanks to two large windows at sea.
In both rooms there are also two beautiful walk-in wardrobes and two toilets with separate shower and sauna, as well as a study and a sofa for moments of maximum privacy.
The hulls allow to realize also two very large guest cabins, with private toilets with separate shower, maintaining very high the style and the constructive details that characterize transversally all the environments and all the furniture.
The kitchen, directly connected to the crew area is located aft in the left hull, characterized by volume and exceptional finishes.
A real home kitchen, functional, modern and elegant, available to the crew that in addition to a private living room also has direct connection to the captain cabin, equipped with overlapping beds and large bathrooms and separate shower.
Two separate crew cabins complete the internal lay out of this project.
From a sailing point of view, two versions had been studied, one more performing with telescopic daggerboard and the other more cruising oriented with fixed keel and shallower draught.
The construction will necessarily be very Hi-tech, in carbon fibre sandwich, in order to obtain a monolithic structure absolutely non-deformable and robust.
The sail plan, with a quite aft located mast, allows you to sail without the aid of the engine power already with 8 knots of TWS and keep averages absolutely interesting, in view of the maximum reduction of consumption and emissions.
