THE M32 ONE DESIGN –

A 32 FOOT CARBON CATAMARAN

The M32 is designed to be long lasting and competitive. The one-design class rule makes the M32 and its cutting edge design affordable for many. The M32 cat is sailed by a crew of four to five. It is designed for racing and has speed enough to beat 40-footers.

The M32 is a speed machine and doesn’t need a jib which would just create too much drag reducing both speed and manoeuvrability. The stripped down M32 sail configuration

with a main and a gennaker is just what you need to bring the extraordinary speed and manoeuvrability from an extremely light and stiff platform. The M32 asymmetrical foils create the perfect amount of lift and stability, making the hulls skim the surface.

DESIGNED TO SAIL

ABOVE THE WATER

The M32 is designed with forward buoyancy for the simple reason to prevent nose diving which only creates drag and just killing speed. The fact that water is 800 times more dense than air explain the importance of designing to minimize the drag of the wetted surface and waves.

The fact that the M32 floats above the water, instead of trying to penetrate the water, makes a difference in keeping the boat in the groove. In most newer designs the bow goes to deep in the water and the hull wants to drive straight instead of allowing the driver to turn the boat to achieve proper sailing angle. This difference is very noticeable in the design.

EASY TO ASSEMBLE AND TRANSPORT.

ZERO TO SAILING IN THREE HOURS.

The M32 is designed to be incredibly easy to assemble and transport with a standard car or truck. Raising the light two-piece mast requires no special equipment or crane; rigging the boat and bolting on the beams takes the crew just a few short hours. You can launch the M32 anywhere! Its ultra-light weight allows ramp launching or beach launching off small dollies, or lift launching from any small club hoist.
