Excess 12 – Have fun in comfort

The Excess 12 is a boat that aims to change the relationship between sail area and displacement compared to the Lagoon 40, from which it inherits the platform, in order to create a boat with more performance that can attract not only the public who loves catamarans but especially those coming from monohulls. This is a boat able to give back to its sailors important performances, which often make them forget the noise of the engine. The external sections of the hull have been remodelled by the VPLP specialists to create a slightly different overall look, but above all, a ton of weight has been saved on the construction, rationalising the internal furnishings and making a different choice of materials. All this without upsetting the DNA of a catamaran that remains to all intents and purposes a cruiser.

Description

Excess 12 – Interior

Let yourself be carried away by the design of its unique, harmonious and seductive lines. The visibility from the wheelhouse, the precision of the rudder, the sunroof…everything has been thought to give you the possibility to fully live the experience on board of the Excess 12. The interiors by Nuata Design are in a rather sober style, with a good balance between wood and composite components.

The interiors are available in 3 different layouts, which affect the habitability of the hulls while the central platform remains unchanged: the first one with 3 cabins and two bathrooms, with the left hull that remains entirely dedicated to the owner, with a large owner’s cabin aft, a central corridor with large closet at side and a very large bathroom in the bow with separate shower box. On the right hull, instead, the guest configuration with two double cabins at the ends of the hull and a central bathroom (also with separate shower box). The second version is a 4 twin cabins in both hulls with two central bathrooms, always very large and with separate shower. The last layout, instead, is the classic ideal for charter, that is 4 cabins and 4 bathrooms and that was also the layout we could observe during our test. However, the spaces are not lacking and benefit from the many passages of light – and air – present on the deck and on the sides of the hulls. In this latest version, the bathrooms are a bit sacrificed, we no longer have a separate shower, but without a shadow of a doubt, it is the perfect solution for rental. In the saloon we find a large table to use when it is a bit cold outside and a large ‘kitchen’ perfectly equipped. In the dinette you can appreciate the brightness given by the turn of the glasses that runs along the entire perimeter of the structure and gives a great airiness to the environment that, as written above, is then very well connected with the outside for the benefit of livability. You can see a great effort in ergonomic studies, with all the edges well rounded and many points of support as well as the wise use of space available.

Excess 12 – Exterior

The full glass deckhouse recalls the Lagoon world, but it is by now a constant in the cat world. The sail plan foresees a large square top mainsail and a self-tacking jib whose rail is positioned high on the deckhouse: a choice that guarantees a good shooting angle for sailing upwind, leaving a free view towards the bow if we are inside at the chart table. On the outside, the helmsman’s seats are interesting, sheltered by a small cover for the sun or useful even on rainy days. The bows are quite sharp and the flares along the hulls give the boat a sporty look. The manoeuvres are organized in a rational way so as not to dirty the external living area, with the mainsail deferred to the extreme stern. The primary winches for the manoeuvres have been positioned outside the cockpit, and are in a convenient position to be reached also by the helmsman.
