Introducing the Windelo 54 Eco-Friendly Sailing Catamaran...
38 South Yacht Sales is proud to be the exclusive Australian & New Zealand agent for the new and environmentally friendly Windelo eco-catamarans made in the south of France.
Bigger sister of the Windelo 50, the Windelo 54 is a blue water cruising catamaran designed by architect duo Christophe Barreau and Fréderic Neuman. The Windelo 54 catamarans are environmentally-friendly, seaworthy, and designed for long-distance cruising.
One of the significant differences with the Windelo 54 is the length of the floats, which are nearly 120 cm longer than those of the Windelo 50; 60 cm of this extra space is around the nacelle, making life on board much more pleasant and comfortable. Lengthened hulls also contribute to greater performance and speed under sail while improving cruising comfort, particularly in rough seas. In addition they also provide extra room in the living spaces, accommodations, and larger storage spaces.
In addition to the solar power, the large battery pack can easily be recharged under sail with the hydro generation, which means the Windelo 54 has an excellent cruising range.
Dare to dream, dare to discover, and dare to live your dreams by choosing to join great sailing adventures!
The larger floats provide additional space also in the aft cabins: the owner's cabin and starboard aft cabin offer each 60 cm more storage space than Windelo 50. The corner window is also bigger, offering a much more open sea view. Enjoy comfortably relaxing on our double 160 x 200 cm or 140 x 200 cm beds and taking in the fantastic view.
The bows are also nearly 40 cm longer, increasing the storage space or the skipper's fore cabin considerably, depending on your accommodation options. In the nacelle, the saloon and galley are also larger, increasing the comfort of these living areas, making them perfect for enjoying a good time with friends.
All the spaces are fitted with generous openings to enjoy the panoramic sea view fully. The openings are more significant in the nacelle and the cabins, pushing the interior and exterior boundaries even further. Whatever layout you have chosen for the nacelle and the floats, our Windelo 54 will allow the creation of a skipper cabin.
The nacelle, a modular social space
The key to the layout was to create a friendly space that worked for everyone and involved everyone. The first essential step was to ensure that the helm station was an integral part of the layout. You can create a spacious unified area where the skipper steps out of isolation and integrates fully into the onboard social life by opening the sliding door between the forward cockpit and the galley. With the help of autopilot, you could easily cook and steer simultaneously! It also means that crew who are relaxing in the saloon are readily available to lend a hand at a moment's notice.
There are other thoughtful practical benefits, such as the highly comfortable 115 x 200 cm pilot berth, situated in the main saloon within easy reach of the helm. There is a chart table at the foot of the forward cockpit in the saloon layout, which makes circulation on board easier. To give you an idea of the space available: the saloon dining table expands to accommodate 6 to 12 people. You can also use an additional outside table for 6 to 12 people at anchor. Depending on the power output of your solar panels, the nacelle roof can be fitted with sun pads for sunbathing at anchor.
As we are all different and our adventures equally so, we choose unique boats for a unique life experience. Options such as trims, navigation instruments or equipment for life on board, as well as the fitting and layout of the indoor spaces can all be customized to match any sailor's expectations. Feel like a portside cabin with two bunk beds, a desk on the starboard, customized showers with a separate toilet? Feel like mixing the layouts proposed in the first plan with the second plan? Our Windelo 54 Adventure catamarans are semi-custom and we can adapt the layout to suit you. Our design teams will work with you to offer customized plans, paying close attention to weight studies and centering weight.
