This is our second production catamaran and embodies all our experiences to date. The first two boats are currently under construction at JTM, China. JTM is an internationally recognized, award winning boat building company employing up to 700 boat builders and craftsmen at 2 boat yards and soon a third. Significantly, we currently have 3 x projects under building contract with this company.
The Young 55 features 75% carbon construction, epoxy resin infusion, Light displacement target of 9,500kg and a cruising payload of 3,500kg. Carbon mast/boom and state of the art rigging and sails, the Young 55 will be a stunning sailing vessel, yet it has a superb modern open plan interior and full cruising specifications. I personally think this will be the ultimate owner owned cruising vessel, as its size is manageable - yet very safe, comfortable and fast.
The hull shape is pure performance with high bridge deck clearance, reverse bows and straight rocker lines. Designed for light air sailing it has a large easy handled rig with all sail controls brought back to one of the best sailing cockpits yet seen. Beautiful and modern open "apartment style" saloon design and three en-suite cabins complete the picture.
Sailing this cat will be intensly satisfying and it will reward good sailors. Please keep an eye open for a new Young 55 website coming soon.
