ILIAD Catamarans | Introduction
ILIAD Catamarans are stunning achievements in power catamaran design delivering safe and comfortable offshore performance with exceptionally long range (2,500nm – 4,500nm).
Featuring class-leading fuel efficiency, ILIAD Catamarans are distinguished by their remarkable living space and exceptional quality.
The ILIAD Power of Choice allows clients to customise many aspects of their catamaran, including layout, colours, timber finishes, electronics packages, engine options and fixtures to perfectly suit their cruising needs and style.
ILIAD Catamarans | Design
ILIAD Catamarans has designed each model to evoke the comfort and style of luxury apartments, with astonishing space throughout their living areas. Conceptualised with long-term cruisers in mind, the cats are extremely functional with excellent flow across the various zones.
Beautifully appointed gourmet galleys are standard across the ILIAD Catamarans range, complete with the best quality Seimens appliances and rangehood extractor fans. Every cupboard is thoughtfully accessible for guests of all heights, and storage facilities are in abundance for extended cruising. As with the rest of the boat, the galley can be completely customised to add or remove any fixtures or styles the buyer desires.
Continuing this freedom of choice, the flybridges can be left entirely open or can be fully enclosed with fully ducted air conditioning, or owners can elect to have the best of both worlds with high-quality clears that can be opened and closed as the elements demand.
Wide, safe walkways are part of each design with hand rails at a comfortable height for complete security at sea, while clear, uncluttered decks and huge deck storage facilities make offshore passages practical, safe and carefree.
ILIAD Catamarans | Performance
Just like the legendary Achaean ships of Homer’s epic poem, ILIAD Catamarans are designed to face the most treacherous conditions with confidence. Ideal for extended-passage cruisers, each model affords impressive range and speed with competitive fuel efficiency.
Powered by 440hp Volvo or Yanmar engines (Cummins optional), ILIAD Catamarans deliver a top speed of 21 knots (lightship). Cruising long range at low speeds will afford more than 3,500 nautical miles (depending on model) at a fuel burn of less than 1.5 litre per nautical mile.
Well-trimmed fore and aft at all speeds, the long-range motor yachts are able to explore farther than their competitors with the protective grounding skegs making them beachable. The catamarans’ hulls and high bridgedecks have been designed to facilitate a smooth ride in the toughest offshore conditions, making the ILIAD Catamarans range a true explorer option that will challenge the loyalties of the most passionate monohull cruisers.
The product of years of rigorous research and development, ILIAD Catamarans boast the design expertise of renowned naval architect Riccardo Bulgarelli who worked in Italy for many years for some of the world’s leading shipyards before establishing his own design office. Bulgarelli has successfully designed and project-managed the build of many exclusive custom vessels as large as 112ft for export to the world market.
