After more than 9 months of work by 10 craftsmen, the ALPHA 42 catamaran hull nr.1 was completed. The composite float was carefully rolled to the assembly building which will become her new home until completion this summer. As we are writing the second hull, which only took 12 days to build will have been completed as well.
The Alpha 42 is an exquisitely designed cruising catamaran which is built in New York. With 6 units already on order this production multihull might quickly become the new benchmark for catamarans in the mid 40′ range. The Alpha 42′ is an excellent first time catamaran for owners who are new to multihulls. She is easy to handle by a single sailor or couple. However, her large and airy volume will invite long term live-aboard sailors and circumnavigators as well.
