Test MY 37 - Nautica.it

In a sector mainly made up of monohulls, the choice of the French shipyard Fountaine Pajot stands out to transfer its experience in the segment of sailing catamarans in that of motorized multihulls, proposing a range of boats from 37 to 68 feet. The entry level, the MY 37 is a catamaran of 11 meters in length for 5.50 of width, numbers that presuppose great stability and, above all, a habitability on board equal to that of larger boats. In fact, we find three double cabins and two bathrooms located in the two hulls, separated by a living area divided into a central square with kitchen cabinet and lounge / dining, plus internal wheelhouse. A second command station is located on the upper deck, from where you have a 360 ° view on the horizon that allows you to maneuver, even in mooring, having everything under control. In navigation, the MY 37, by virtue of its length / width ratio, demonstrates great qualities of stability and maneuverability, and also by facing the waves at full speed and forcing the turns - a diameter of about 15 meters - the boat transmits safety and solidity. The MY 37 reaches 22.5 knots, but the most significant data we can offer the consumption, which are really contained and that, thanks to a quite large fuel tank, translate into a great cruising autonomy. Thanks to its stability in navigation and above-average roominess, typical qualities of multihulls, the MY 37 is the ideal way to tackle long-distance cruises.
