The Cerulean 1490 will offer internal space ideal for the family, weather long term cruising or chartering. It will be fast and strong with better waterline beam values and high power to weight ratio. Designed primarily as an effective fast sailing cat with high bridge deck clearance and chamfered panels to minimize slamming.
Weight is centralized to reduce pitching and build weight is around 30% lighter than most production cats with twin dagger boards to improve the windward performance. The 1490 will be easy to sail using electric winches positioned
on the raised helm station.
With all line running back to the helm position it makes her an ideal single or short-handed catamaran. Single line reefing and furling headsails operated from a static control station makes handling an absolute breeze. Wide side decks and flat fore deck ensure that it is very safe when going forward in rough conditions.
The design incorporates large deck lockers for generous storage and a hug cockpit wiht a very open, spacious and comfortable feel. This is made possible with the advanced engineering of the bowed bridge deck not needing a back beam and moving the main sheet track up onto the cabin top which is visible and controlled from the helm position.
The helm offers a comfortable two seater position with head and shoulders above the cabin top for perfect all round visibility and all lines close to hand, the fold down shade top gives the best of both worlds, full shade with the option of zip in clear panels. Large rope locker ensure that the lines are kept out of the way and the helm area safe.
Inside the 1490 has the comfort and luxury one expects from a state of the art luxury catamaran. The big open uncluttered saloon and galley are far bigger than normal becuase advanced engineering allows to mast to be in the ideal position without the normal cross bulkhead restricting the saloon size. With a large galley offering generous fridge and freezer and an electric hob and oven. The saloon features a large table giving 360 visibility.
