82' Cruising Cat by Craig Cunningham

Sent by Craig Cunningham - "This September has seen two exceptional yachting events take place.
The battle for the The Americas Cup has now been fought and won in spectacular fashion.
Focus on new technologies, exceptional design & the bold and brave efforts the crews and their support teams have all been on display.

This is an exciting moment for yachting as the worlds attention has been focussed on sailing.
The spins off will hopefully be to excite & inspire and for more people to explore sailing as an activity and a lifestyle.
Next up in Europe was the Monaco Boat Show - the highlight of the SuperYacht Calendar with builders and brokers showing off the best of the best.Together these events define everything that is exceptional about yachting and

as such 2013 is very special indeed.

It is with this as a backdrop that I send you news about one of my designs.
I am sure you will know that the big performance cruising yachts we see today can trace their roots back to the J-Class as it was those early Americas Cup racers that inspired so many to explore sailing and from that cruisers and performance cruisers evolved.

Certainly I do love those designs - but what will the next generation of yachts - being inspired by today’s Americas Cup look like?

It is with this in mind that I present to you the ENDLESS SUMMER.
The AMERICAS CUP has been a showcase for real excitement on the water. SuperYacht owners may well be captivated by the AC72 racing catamarans.

In fact I hope it may inspire some of them to consider the possibilities of catamarans as SuperYachts. Check more articles on ES at :

Industry developments

I am currently promoting this design as a new build opportunity, and am seeking a visionary client to take it forward into production.

This design could be a custom or semi production unit. Maybe for a charter fleet, with very distinctive services, combining real luxury , with diving etc.
In the event that this project is able to progress I would also be looking to various yards to tender."
