The cockpit, at the same level of the dinette, creates a total continuity between inside and outside, usable in any condition and in maximum safety. The boat is high on the water with a lot of volume in the hulls and the powerful hulls are designed to minimize the risk of flooding.
Speaking of external design, the large windows on the walls guarantee a very high brightness and contact with the sea.
The IceCat 64 is looking for exceptional performance, both sailing and motorized, also linked to an excellent internal habitability, now essential, are the elements that have most committed us in the realization of this project.
In a catamaran of this type, where clearly the search for minimum resistance is the necessary basis to achieve high performance, we have carried out a complex research to ensure adequate internal volumes, looking for an ideal compromise that would give space to both aspects. This has been possible by combining a thin and submerged living work, a wider dead work, which takes advantage of the bend that runs along the sides slightly flared, to get the minimum possible resistance to advancement, given good internal volumes and a large and livable bridge.
As far as the distribution of the volumes is concerned, at longitudinal level, it has been chosen to keep the ends rather “full”, increasing the longitudinal inertia. This solution, in addition to reducing the risk of “nose diving”, offers the advantage of eliminating an annoying “aft trim” during motor navigation.
The bows are typical of any “wave piercer” hull and the bow wheel, as well as the transom, are slightly immersed.
