Sporty, fast catamaran with comfort
Knierim Shipyard’s current project is a 17.5 High Performance Cruising Catamaran designed by Roger Hill. Two slender hulls built in carbon fiber sandwich construction and a weight-optimized structural design by Pure Engineering guarantee for a racy yacht. The rotatable performance carbon fiber rig is manufactured by Marström. The catamaran promises fast travel with high comfort. The interior offers plenty of space for homeliness. From the aft deck, protected by a fixed bimini, you enter the salon with pantry and seating, and a TV cabinet with TV lift. From there, a staircase leads to the swimmers, offering space for wet rooms, sleeping cabins and generous storage space for sails. We look forward to seeing the catamaran in action in the summer of 2022 for her first trips on the Kieler Förde.
