The Isara 50
The Catamaran lifestyle... Isara 50'
Catamarans are the
ideal choice for a cruising couple. They're easy to handle under power and
sail. They offer a stable platform for the experienced and novice sailor
alike. Modern designs, like the Isara, have the load carrying
ability not available in older designs. They go to windward well. They
tack. In fact, with over 100 ocean deliveries of 1,000 miles or more in a
variety of conditions--of monohulls and catamarans--we find that
catamarans offer about 20% faster passages.

(See information on 44, left)
The Isara 50 sail was conceived by Cris Jackman, who identified the
disparity between the luxury offered by leading brands in the power boat
market and the rather basic package normally offered in catamarans and the
sailing market generally.
In addition, much of the ‘production’ boat building market offers
poor quality fit out, low standard specs and cheap production methods aimed
and profit before user comfort, which meant a wealth of issues to be
addressed and improved on.
Starting with a blank canvas he created a brief that required a boat
that assigned equal importance to providing a high level of quality and
usability in every area from styling to ergonomics with the need to provide
a well performing ‘blue water capable’ sailing catamaran.
To this end Naval Architect Christian Stimson has not only fulfilled
the brief but surpassed it, and in conjunction with Hi Modulus, the global
leader of marine composite engineering they have ensured that the structural
integrity and technical challenges have been met.
In addition to the overall architecture we have added into the mix
international marine and aircraft stylist Roel de Groot who has fashioned
stunning looks and elegance both externally and internally. The use of large
vertical ports giving guests views both sides of the horizon and flooding
the cabins with ambient natural light, highlights the innovative and new
thought process we have used throughout.
The interior boasts bespoke fabrics covering every inch of the cabins
and voluminous saloon and the high quality fit out as standard is far above
anything on the market today.
Within the 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 cabin options available, the 5 and 6
cabin versions offer all cabins within the main fabric of the boat (i.e. not
forepeaks) and offer a substantial increase in charter revenue without
compromising on comfort. We also offer a ‘family cabin’ option.
Extensive customization is possible and there are options for a
complete hybrid power system and daggerboards. Call us for more details.
