The Crowther 50, Triple 8, is a fast, 50 ft center pod cruiser / racer electric catamaran, professionally maintained to the highest standard and fitted with the very best sails, hardware and rigging.

Full carbon composite construction built in the US in 2007. Triple 8 is lightweight and very strong. Cruising at speeds in the low 20 knots and with a top speed of over 27 knots, she is a delight to sail. Easily driven she needs very little sail to move at 10-15kts and make 240nm days at sea.

Winner of the SSANZ 2011 2 handed coastal series, and runner up ( to an Orma 60 ) in both the 2010 & 2011 NZ Coastal Classic 888 is a proven shorthanded and offshore capable catamaran.
