About Fusion Catamarans
A project like the Fusion 40 does not just happen, it is diligently planned. Worldwide analysis is done capturing the data that will eventually make up the hundreds of pages that become the business plan.
Unlike most catamarans, the Fusion 40 was designed primarily with the serious cruiser in mind. It not only has the performance that is sought from a modern design, but has the ability of a good monohull when going to windward. Lengthy discussions with specialist multihull yacht brokers were undertaken to rationalise the preferred requirements of the buying public and sizes were analysed before the dimensions were given to the Garry Lidgard Naval Design Studio.
One very critical element was to produce a boat, not only exceptional in her looks but also light, enabling her to perform safely and endure the challenges at sea.
To achieve this, two chief engineers developed an improved vinylester and vinylepoxy resin for use in the vacuum infusion moulding process for all parts of the vessel. There are no better composite parts available on the market. The manufacture of moulds starts with computer design and progresses with the use of a five axis router for accurate component mould manufacture.
This process has also created a gelcoat finish on the Fusion 40 that most companies only dream of - and a weight and strength ratio never before seen on a production catamaran. Whether you are looking for a cat to do the weekend race, coastal hop, or cruise oceans, Fusion 40 is at the leading edge.
