The choice of a rig with self-tacking jib
In order to ensure maximum safety and easy handing, the mast was pulled back on the centreline of the boat in order to balance the weights and limit tensions on the mainsail. The headsails are larger and offer new possibilities, especialy the use of a self-steering jib, as large as a genoa.
The NEW presents 124 m2 of sail area close hauled, with 76 m2 of mainsail and 48 m2 of jib, a combination that makes it easy to control in any situation, even while short handed. In addition, the tilted boom well appreciated on the NEW monohulls, facilitates lowering and secures the crew on the fly bridge. The outside rope is optional, to support a code 0 or a gannaker.
Egineering research and construction
The NEW Catamarans project has benefited from high-technology search and resources, notably the CFD analysis, which revealed great hydrodynamic qualities. The entire structure has been analysed and validated by the finite element method (FEM) in every detail.
Balance between inside and outside space
The NEW Catamarans presents a perfect balance with the deck plan, the cockpit space, roof and foredeck divided into 1/3 of the total length. The large proportion of the roof differs from the models of the category and offer the thought of a very wide space of the living room area. Indeed, it is a testimony of a balanced project in terms of exterior and interior space, developed to offer the greatest comfort in all seasons. At the front, there are two outstanding sunbathing areas, separated by a large storage box and the anchor well. The sidedecks are spacious, and secured by hull bulwarks along the entire length. At the cockpit level, there are two steps, one on the port side and one on the starboard side, offering the access to the flybridge
The flybridge by NEW
The NEW Catamarans flybridge is a key element of this project. Elaborated as a second cockpit, it expands considerably the living space outside. Traffic is ideal with an access from two stairs – through the cockpit from starboard, and the sidedecks from port. He is equipted with a low table and surrounded by large seats and a wide sunbathing area. It also features the helm station…
A “Super Yachts” helm station
Located on the fly bridge, the helm station offers an absolute advantage in terms of visibility. The large console inspired by the superyachts, integrates all the equipment in a very ergonomic layout. The three mainsail winches, jib and gennaker are easy to reach. The helmsman also benefits from an adjustable seat and a bimini, available in both canvas or rigid.
A functional cockpit as an extension of the living room The cockpit space of the NEW is similar to a 50 feet boat or more. Indeed, the 8-metre boat’s width provides excellent space distribution and ideal traffic on board. There is a large table for 8 people, multiple seating and relaxation areas, as well as the famous plancha created by NEW The various portholes provide an incredible natual light in the rear cabins. The large window door opens completely for full communication with the lounge area.

Living room area and 360° vision
The NEW has been designed to satisfy the requirements of both owners and renters wishing to live on board throughout the year. Offering a large living room was essential and the result is perfectly achieved. The kitchen connected to the cockpit, is fully equipped and ergonomic with its many storage spaces. At the front, there is the office space – chart table, equipped with a repeater screen and an autopilot control with joystick, to control the boat from the inside. The sofa space – dining table, can be modulated in 3 positions – low table, dining table – double bed, with the seats smartly stored in the central furniture to keep the space as clear as possible. The wide 360° window facing the sea provides plenty of light. The storage are various and well thought out, with a large console with drawers, ready to fit

Guest cabins with independent access
The NEW presents an unusual configuration to access the guest cabins. To guarantee the best possible privacy in each space, a double way towards the floats has been designed – one to port, the other to starboard. So, all the cabins have a totally separate access and remain accessible from the lounge.
Each cabin includes its own bathroom with separate shower, as well as many closets and storage.Ventilation and brightness are also ideally suited.
In line with the functionalities of a large yacht, the service area of the NEW brings a huge extra value. Available in 3 and 4 cabins, it can be used as an extra kitchen, storage area, laundry room and many other possibilities according to your needs.
The skipper cabin
Available in every available layout, it is both functional and comfortable. The skipper has a 190cm x 115cm bed, and an integrated head with shower and toilet. The main access is through the front deck, but an access door to the float remains present if necessary
