Power cat breaks new record

Power cat breaks new record

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.”
