Multihull Solutions Launches New Zealand’s First Outof-Water Boat Show Following the overwhelming success of Multihull Solution’s Out-of-Water Boat Show on the Gold Coast, the company will replicate the facility at its New Zealand Sales Centre in late 2019. The purpose-built year-round Out-of-Water Boat Show is based at the Multihull Solutions Sales Centre in Whangarei just over two hours north of Auckland and has been developed in partnership with the New Zealand’s most popular multihull hub, the Norsand Boatyard. The first of its kind in New Zealand, the Out-of-Water Boat Show provides an extremely affordable and effective means for clients to successfully sell their multihull with rates at half the price of a regular marina berth. Buyers can inspect an extensive range of multihulls for sale from hull to interior on the hard in one convenient location with easy access for survey6

ors to conduct inspections prior to purchase. The facility is also conveniently located at a New Zealand Customs Clearance site making it extremely appealing for international cruisers to sell their vessel in Whangarei once they have completed their cruising adventures. Multihull Solution’s agreement with Customs enables sellers to list their boat for sale without being out of pocket with taxes. As the main showroom for the entire South Pacific region, the new facility is the only venue that buyers need to visit to view an expansive range of quality pre-owned multihulls on the hard. The Out-of-Water Boat Show concept allows sellers to showcase their boat for sale in a premium display space incurring less wear and tear on the vessel than traditional marina sales berths. The facility is professionally operated and located in a secure fully-fenced venue with convenient access to comprehensive shipyard facilities for any maintenance or repair work.

A team of multihull specialists is also on hand to facilitate all aspects of the sales process, making it an easy and stress-free process for clients. Professional maintenance and cleaning packages are available to ensure each vessel is in pristine condition for buyers to inspect. The Norsand yard is also the ideal base to manage any required refit and overhaul after clients have completed their Pacific cruising adventures. The shipyard offers quality warranty works and contractors for major brands like Catana, Fountaine Pajot, Leopard, Sunreef and more, and is the ideal facility to prepare multihulls for sale in the Out-of-Water Display.

ELG Carbon Fibre and INEOS Team UK Committed to Closing the Loop in Marine Manufacturing ELG Carbon Fibre, a market leader in recycled carbon fiber materials, and INEOS Team UK are working together to ensure sustainable materials and practices are incorporated into The America’s Cup 2021 build program. ELG has been a Technical Supplier to INEOS Team UK since the campaign began in 2018 and has processed 1000 kg of carbon manufacturing waste and end-of-use parts for the British Challengers. From ELG’s specialist facility in the West Midlands, INEOS Team UK’s recovered fibers are converted into milled and chopped products to make thermoset and thermoplastic compounds and non-woven mats. These reprocessed products are then used to manufacture composite structures during the production of the AC75 boat that will compete in Auckland in 2021. Although precise details of the boat’s design remain a closely guarded secret, ELG can reveal their recycled non-woven materials have been used in the production of two cradles to support the AC75 during transit as well as the hull and deck molds. ELG’s technicians conducted a range of fiber characterization analyses on INEOS Team UK’s feedstock. Every batch of material that is processed is also given a classification to support traceability and

consistency in the fibres recovered, and therefore in the final product. All these processes adhered to BS EN ISO 9001:2015 and EN 9100:2016 quality standards. Both organizations view this partnership as a vital step in addressing the issue of global carbon consumption and raising awareness of the urgent need to move towards closed loop recycling within the marine industry. Alan Boot, Naval Architect for INEOS Team UK, comments. “The reuse of carbon fiber products is a real game changer. We are diverting waste away from landfill and closing the loop in our production methods wherever possible. ELG’s products have fitted seamlessly into our manufacturing processes which demonstrates how successfully these materials can be in a range of commercial markets. This is a really exciting time in terms of boat production and will hopefully lead the way for other manufacturers to follow suit.” “This is the perfect partnership. ELG’s recycled carbon fibre products are helping to support the vital message of sustainability in elite sport and that is something we are very proud to be associated with,” comments Frazer Barnes, ELG Carbon Fibre’s Managing Director. INEOS Team UK AC75 Boat 1 will be launched this summer. For more information, visit:

In the Galley

with Carolyn Shearlock

Carolyn Shearlock and her husband Dave have been cruising over 11 years and 10,000 miles, first on a Tayana 37 monohull and now on a 34’ Gemini catamaran. Along the way, they sold pretty much everything they owned (twice!), gained a great boat dog, had a bunch of wonderful times and some adventures . . . and learned a ton about what does and doesn’t work! Carolyn has a website and co-authored The Boat Galley Cookbook with Jan Irons, which has over 800 boat-friendly recipes and is available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Sweet Treats



hese turtle brownies are perfect when you want a really decadent treat! When I was in grade school, every December we’d anxiously await the “cookie plates” that various friends and neighbors would give each other during the holiday season. One of my family’s favorites would come from the Brauker family – Barb made these incredible turtle brownies. One year, she included a recipe card with the cookie plate. It was the recipe for her turtle brownies! Here at The Boat Galley, I usually stay away from recipes that start with box mixes. But sometimes you’re in a location where you can get them and this is a very special treat – but I’ve also made them without the mix. And by the way, you can substitute any chocolate cake mix for the German Chocolate cake mix – it’ll taste a little different, but I’ve done it and it’s still good.

Turtle Brownies

A wonderful treat for a special occasion – with a variation in case you can’t get a German Chocolate cake mix. 18

Prep Time 25 mins Cook Time 25 mins Total Time 50 mins Ingredients 1 box German chocolate cake mix 1 package caramels (14-ounce) 2/3 cup evaporated milk (you can use a 5-ounce can, which is just slightly less) 3/4 cup butter (or margarine) 1 cup broken walnuts (or pecan or macadamia nuts) 2 cups chocolate chips (12-ounce bag) Instructions Preheat oven to 350°F. Unwrap caramels and place in a pan with half the evaporated milk. Melt over very low heat, stirring almost constantly to make sure it doesn’t scorch (you can also do this in a microwave on half power for about 2 minutes – check and stir after 1 minute). Set aside. At the same time, melt butter. Combine cake mix, remaining milk and butter with a spoon. Press half cake mixture in a greased 9″ x 13″ inch pan and bake for 6 minutes at 350°. Remove from oven but don’t turn the oven off. Pour melted caramels evenly on top – don’t try to spread it around after you’ve poured it, it will just become a gloppy mess with the brownie layer underneath. It’s fine if it’s not perfectly even. Sprinkle nuts and chocolate chips over the top. Take remaining cake mix and spread over the top – you can either crumble it or take a 1″ section at a time and quickly press it between your hands then lay it over the top (I find the latter works better for MULTIHULLS Magazine | July/August 2019

me to get it evenly distributed). It’s fine if there are empty spaces. Bake at 350° for 15-20 minutes. There’s no real test for doneness because of the caramel – you have to judge by eye. The brownie part should look dry and done. Cool and cut into bars – this is very rich, and generally 1″ or 1 1/2 ″ squares are a good size. Keep in an airtight container. Notes Unwrapping the caramels is the longest part of making this. See if you can enlist someone to help – in our house, this was always Dad’s job as Mom and I prepped the rest of the ingredients! To make turtle brownies without the cake mix, I’ve simply made a batch of my favorite regular fromscratch brownies, baked half as in the recipe, added the caramel, nuts and chips and put the rest of the brownie batter over the top. This is also a good option if you don’t want to make a full 9″ x 13″ pan – just decrease the caramels, nuts and chocolate chips proportionately as well.


s a kid, I spent summers on a small lake near our home in Michigan. And when the local sailing club offered a class for kids when I was 12, I quickly signed up. At the end of the six-week session, our instructor handed out certificates . . . and these wonderful cookies. While I’ve long since forgotten his name, both the sailing lessons and the explanation of why these are “boat cookies” have stuck with me. His mother, he said, would make these cookies when they took their bigger boat out on Lake Michigan – ginger was a natural remedy for queasy tummies, the cookies were easy to make without an electric mixer and everybody loved them. A few years later, when my Explorer Scout Post spent a weekend aboard a sailboat on Lake Huron, I suggested these cookies as an afternoon snack. It was my first experience baking in a moving kitchen | MULTIHULLS Magazine

and I quickly appreciated how easy they were to mix up. They were an instant hit! Fast forward 20 years to our first charter trip, in the British Virgin Islands with our best friends. Once again, these cookies made an appearance – and having made them once, I had to make them several more times over the course of the week. Four years later, it was our first night anchored out on our own boat. Want to guess what we munched on as we watched the most amazing display of stars?

Ginger Snaps

This recipe is easy to make without a mixer. Some find ginger helpful for mild seasickness. And it’s delicious. Sounds like a perfect boat recipe! (There’s a glitch in how nutrition facts are calculated – divide by 12 to get the amounts per cookie.) Prep Time 10 mins Baking – per batch 15 mins Total Time 1 hr 10 mins Ingredients 2/3 cup canola oil or vegetable oil 1/2 cup white sugar 1/2 cup brown sugar or additional white sugar 1/4 cup molasses 1 egg 1 teaspoon vanilla 2 cups flour (can use up to half whole wheat flour) 2 teaspoons baking soda 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon cinnamon 1 teaspoon ginger 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves Extra sugar to sprinkle over top Instructions Preheat oven to 375° F. Mix oil, sugars, molasses, egg and vanilla. Mix dry ingredients separately in small bowl so that soda and spices are evenly distributed, then mix dry ingredients into sugar mix. Make into 1” balls (mixture will be soft) and place 3” apart on greased cookie sheet (as they bake, cookies will become 3” flat circles). Sprinkle sugar over each cookie. Bake 9 minutes at 375° F. Cool on the cookie sheet for a minute or two before moving to a wire rack or plate. 19


um! There is nothing so good as fresh, hot coffee cake in the morning. This recipe is the same as my Streusel Coffee Cake, adapted for use in the Omnia Stove Top Oven. Read more about the Omnia here or buy it from either of these two sellers: Amazon or Sea Dog Boating Solutions

Streusel Coffee Cake for the Omnia Stove Top Oven

Not only is this coffee cake delicious, the recipe is designed to be made by hand and it bakes perfectly in the Omnia, taking just 45 minutes from start to finish. Prep Time 15 mins Cook Time 30 mins Total Time 45 mins Ingredients Topping 1/2 cup walnuts or pecans or chopped dried, fresh or frozen fruit 2 tablespoons sugar brown or white 1/2 tablespoon flour 1/2 tablespoon butter or margarine or canola oil or vegetable oil 1 teaspoon cinnamon or allspice Batter 1 1/2 cup flour 3/4 cup sugar 1 teaspoon salt 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder 1/2 cup raisins or chopped dates or other chopped dried fruit or fresh or frozen fruit 1 egg 1/2 cup milk or soy milk or water 1/4 cup canola oil or vegetable oil or melted butter or margarine 20

Instructions Make the topping by mixing the nuts, flour, butter and cinnamon to form crumbly mixture (it will not all clump together). Set aside. Mix flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and fruit in medium bowl. Add egg, milk and oil; stir until well mixed. Batter will be thick. Place the steel base for the Omnia on a hot burner and let it preheat for about three minutes as you ready the coffee cake. Lightly oil the aluminum food pan of the Omnia (my experience is that oil or a bit of butter or margarine does much better than non stick sprays). Pour the batter into it and smooth it out. Sprinkle topping over batter. Place the lid on the food pan and carefully place the pan on the hot base. Leave the burner on hot for one minute (60 seconds). This is important for heating the pan and the air that is channeled over the top of the coffee cake. Turn the burner down to just above medium (my stove has settings from 1 to 7, 7 being the hottest, and I turn it to 4). Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Resist the urge to take the lid off too often, as it lets out the hot air over the food pan when you do. Cool at least slightly before cutting. If cutting the coffee cake in the pan, use a nylon or silicone spatula to cut slices. Knives will scratch the pan Notes The first few times you use the Omnia, you’ll have to experiment a little with the temperature settings until you know how hot your burners are. While it’s very strange at first to bake without a thermostat, it works just fine. Most people who write to me with problems are overly afraid of burning food (I know I was!) and thus turn the burner down too low and the results aren’t satisfactory. Do NOT make a larger batch than specified – the pan will be too full and the bottom will burn before the top is done. Dairy Free To make a dairy-free version, use canola or coconut oil instead of butter, and soy or almond milk in place of regular milk. Wardrobe Guest cabin MULTIHULLS Magazine | July/August 2019


aking on a boat isn’t quite the same as in a house. You may not have an electric mixer, your oven might have a hot spot due to its small size, or you might not even have an oven. Fear not! With a few quick tips and some boatfriendly recipes, you can have delicious sweets to nibble. And it’s oh-so-worth it to have something yummy on board. No electric mixer? Recipes, like this one, that use oil instead of shortening are much easier to mix by hand, with the added bonus of oil not requiring refrigeration and being slightly healthier. Hot spot in your oven? A baking stone (Amazon) will do wonders to even out the temperature. No oven? No-Bake cookies don’t require an oven, or an Omnia Stove Top Oven (available on Amazon) is an easy way to bake cakes, brownies, bread, casseroles and more on the stovetop with great results. You can learn more about using a baking stone and baking on the stovetop on The Boat Galley. For now, let’s move on to the good stuff – the recipe. You can find this one in The Boat Galley Cookbook.

Peanut Butter Cookies

These cookies are a snap to mix up, with flexible ingredients to suit what’s on board. Ingredients 1 cup brown sugar or white sugar 1/2 cup canola oil or vegetable oil (olive oil has too strong a flavor) 1 cup peanut butter (smooth or crunchy) 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon vanilla (optional) 2 tablespoons milk or water 1 egg 1 3/4 cups flour 2 teaspoons baking powder | MULTIHULLS Magazine

Instructions Preheat oven to 375° F. In medium bowl, mix brown sugar, oil, peanut butter, salt, vanilla, milk, and egg. Add flour and baking powder and mix well. Make 1” to 1 1/4 ” balls and place on greased cookie sheet (if you don’t have a cookie sheet, use a double sheet of aluminum foil). Use fork in a crisscross pattern to flatten. Bake for 9 minutes at 375°. Remove from cookie sheet to cool. Notes If you first measure the brown sugar, then the oil, then the peanut butter, you won’t have stuff sticking in the measuring cup.


y great-grandmother began serving this chocolate cake nearly 100 years ago, and it’s been a family favorite ever since. It’s great on a boat, as it uses cocoa instead of baking chocolate, was intended to be mixed by hand and baked in a “moderate oven” fueled by wood – perfect for a somewhat temperamental galley oven. Plus, the frosting won’t run in tropical heat!

Grandma Phila’s Chocolate Upside Down Cake

This Chocolate Upside Down Cake is designed to be made without an electric mixer and tastes great – perfect if you live on a boat, RV or off the grid. Prep Time 10 mins Cook Time 35 mins Total Time 45 mins Ingredients Cake 1 cup flour 2 teaspoons baking powder see note below 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 1/2 tablespoons cocoa 21

3/4 cup sugar 1/2 cup milk 2 tablespoons melted butter or vegetable oil 1/2 teaspoon vanilla 1/2 cup nuts Topping 1/2 cup brown sugar – if not available, use white sugar and a smidge of honey or molasses 1/2 cup sugar 5 tablespoons cocoa 1 cup boiling water Instructions Preheat oven to 350°F. Place all cake ingredients in a bowl and stir to mix. Pour into an ungreased 8”x 8” pan (or anything that is reasonably close). Let sit while you prepare the topping, which can be made in the same bowl (scrape the batter into the pan and you don’t need to wash the bowl). Mix together topping ingredients and spoon over the mix in the baking pan. You’ll notice that the cake mix will start to float to the surface – that’s normal. Bake in a 350°F oven for 35 minutes. Time it! Cake is done when the top is uniformly dry, although the frosting mixture may bubble around the sides. Don’t overbake! Allow to cool before serving. To serve, cut cake into pieces and slip a spatula under one slice. Carefully take it out of the pan and flip it upside down onto a plate – the gooey frosting will now be on top. Notes If you use a smaller pan, the mix will be thicker and you’ll probably have to bake it longer. An 8” or 9” round pan works well, as does a 9” x 6” pan or even a bread pan. This recipe doubles well to fill a 9” x 13” pan – baking time is approximately the same. Be sure to store your baking powder inside a Ziploc bag, taking it out just long enough to measure the amount you need. Humidity is the enemy of baking powder since it reacts with moisture to raise the batter. If it has already reacted with moisture in the air, it won’t do anything for your batter. I learned this the hard way, with a very flat cake! If I make this while underway or in a rolling anchorage, I measure the cup of water for the topping when I put it into the teakettle to heat, then just pour it into the mixing bowl. Much safer than trying to measure boiling water in a moving boat. MM 22

Incat Crowther Shadow Cat Offers Unparalleled Capability


ODOR is the first in the Shadow Cat range that brings Incat Crowther catamaran capability to the yacht industry. The platform offers incredible amounts of deck and storage space, flexibility, stability, efficiency and capability. The design offers a stable platform for the safe transfer of guests from helicopter to the mothership, via tenders. Design and naval architecture was by Incat Crowther, project management and technical consultation by Robert Smith of YCTS and construction by Astilleros Armón at their Burela shipyard in Spain. HODOR has been completely customized to carry the specific equipment and supplies to support and enhance the owner’s mothership capabilities. The design uses the robust engineering of hulls proven in offshore platform service, such as the SEACOR CREWzer class and Incat Crowther 70m Fast Crew Boat (FCB) class. The hull incorporates a reverse bow, a deadweight capacity of 240t and a low propeller draft of 3.1m. The platform accommodates an astounding number of toys, facilities and personnel. This includes five tenders (the largest being 56’ / 17 meters in size), jet 34

skis, quad bikes, a submarine garage, a helipad, a large complement of crew, staff and support equipment. The tenders and submarine are flexibly located and can be launched from the upper and main decks; the upper deck via the two large knuckle boom cranes, on the main deck via twin beam cranes and the main feature of the vessel; the aft lifting platform for the 56-foot chase boat. A portable davit on the fore deck facilitates the launch and recovery of the vessels ROV

MULTIHULLS Magazine | July/August 2019

and can also be used for additional jet ski storage. The helipad is a fully-certified and CAP437 compliant for helicopters of 6t and up to D-value of 16m including the Eurocopter EC145. A large reception room, finished to a yacht standard, sits forward of the helipad, allowing guests to be transferred in comfort between helicopters and tenders. The port hull shell door, provided for guest access is finished to a yacht standard and directly connected to the guest lounge via a guest staircase. The starboard hull shell door is reserved for crew operations. There is also water access via two stern platforms, should weather conditions require stern boarding. Dive equipment is fully integrated with compressors, NITROX and O2 facilities, as well as a hospital with decompression chamber. Specialized spaces are dedicated for fresh and frozen food storage, additional storage for the mother vessel, waste treatment and general and spares stores. Propulsion is provided by two main engines, giving a max speed of 22.5 knots, or long-range cruising at 14 knots up to 5,500nm. The catamaran platform allows fuel savings of around 40%, affording the full vessel range with only 160,000 liters of diesel fuel. The vessel’s tankage supplies toys and vehicles with jet fuel, petrol and diesel from dedicated bunker stations. A complement of 20 crew and staff are comfortably accommodated in a mix of double and twin ILOcompliant staterooms, each with en-suite bathrooms. The wheelhouse is situated with excellent visibility. Access to electronics systems is simplified with incorporation of a walk-around main helm console and a dedicated MEC. Fitted with an exhaust cleaning SCR system for IMO Tier 3 and EPA Tier 4 compliance, greenhouse gas emissions are significantly reduced, allowing the Incat Crowther 66 design to be more environmentally friendly. | MULTIHULLS Magazine


The inherent stability of the catamaran does not require gyro or roll stabilizers whilst at rest. When underway, the vessel pitching motions are reduced by twin Humphree active interceptors on the stern. A twin anchoring system is provided, which, combined with the widely spaced twin hulls, provides reduced motions whilst at anchor. Patton Marine has inspected the vessel, and marine surveyor Tom Corness explains, “the quality of workmanship is exceptionally good for this commercial standard of vessel – it blends commercial and yacht standards perfectly to perform yacht support tasks”. Incat Crowther, together with YCTS Ltd, is offering a new range of Shadow Cats that are set to bring a new level of capability to yacht owners and operators, with unparalleled support vessel capacity, stability and flexibility. The design is fully customizable to suit each owner’s requirements, including further features, such as a helicopter hangar, available on request.

The New Nautitech 46


he French shipbuilder Nautitech took the opportunity of the 10-year anniversary of the International Multihull Boat Show to unveil the characteristic features of their latest family member: the new Nautitech 46, before it is to be presented at the floating boat show in Cannes this coming September. The Nautitech 46 Open and 46 Fly have been redesigned by ship architect Marc Lombard and by Roscoe Design so as to achieve the most accomplished association of performance and comfort currently available on the market. “Our customer’s satisfaction is our top priority. This is why we have decided to redesign this version; the market segment of the 46 is very active and new developments are constantly presented. Our customers should be able to benefit from the latest trends – be it in terms of 38

ergonomics, materials, or performance. We therefore have imagined our new catamaran as a perfect combination of performance and comfort.” – Maya Gauthier

Upgraded Performances for an Incomparable Sailing Experience

The unique features of the new Nautitech 46 were reinforced by the bi-color roof that confers it a modern and racy look, the longer

mast, the lowered boom and the larger sail surface area, which all together contribute to establish the sailing performances of this catamaran model: it achieves one of the best weight/displacement ratios in its category.

New Boat


un Concept is a boat-building shipyard, fully dedicated to developing and building solar powered vessels. We have started 4+ years ago, aiming to develop sustainable vessels. Our first model, a 7-meter boat for 12 people, was a success, and we have so far build and sold 18 units, mostly to tourism operators, and the proof of concept is accomplished. The needs of the market for a bigger, faster and offshore boat were clear. Two and a half years ago we started to develop our new model, CAT 12. The boat is now in the water, with wonderful performances. With several versions available, it reaches tour operators, charters, professionals and private users. It is the next step towards a more sustainable nautical future. There is no better place to enjoy a walk in the wild than on board of a CAT 12. Spacious, versatile and extremely comfortable, the CAT 12 is ideal for unforgettable trips. And without harming the environment! 42

CAT 12.0

CAT 12 is a solar powered catamaran, with capacity for 25 to 45 passengers, with modern lines and sophisticated and great aerodynamics. At 12 meters long and 27.5m2 of deck area, CAT 12 is ideal for sightseeing, for parties and events or just to enjoy a great gathering of friends. Just imagine a sunset aboard the CAT 12‌

MULTIHULLS Magazine | July/August 2019

CAT 12 uses, as its source of energy, the sunlight that is stored in the photovoltaic panels on the boat. With the CAT 12, you can sail at zero cost and still benefit from an 85% more economical maintenance than on traditional boats. CAT 12 stands out from the other boats of the same category for its aerodynamic lines, which provide smooth navigability, even at higher speeds. The space is wide and adjustable to various situations, which makes CAT 12 ideal for tourist events of various types, always with comfort and sophistication as a backdrop. To later remember! CAT 12 does not consume fossil fuels and does not produce greenhouse gases (GHG). Its electric motors do not spill oils or produce exhaust fumes that damage the environment. The hull, specially designed for minimal impact on the ecosystem, allows it to be in perfect harmony with the surrounding nature and to preserve the riverside fauna and flora.

All fuel consumption numbers are the total for all engines in the boat. Speeds are measured with Stalker ProSports radar gun or GPS. Fuel consumption (gallons per hour) measured with Floscan digital fuel-flow meter or by on-board factory-installed diagnostic instruments. Range is based on 90% of published fuel capacity. Sound levels determined using Radio Shack digital decibel meter on A scale. 68 dBA is the level of normal conversation. Time to plane is measured from start of acceleration to formation of rooster tail behind boat.

The high bow profile of the Horizon 3000 and the rounded tunnel design make this cat capable of handling head seas with aplomb, something not usual in power cats.


Twin 250-hp Evinrude E-TEC G2s on Armstrong brackets provide power and 50.6 mph speed on our test boat. The Horizon 3000 is rated for and could handle twin 300-hp outboards.

The Eastward Horizon 3000 is a versatile power cat utility boat that can be customized for fishing, diving, search and rescue, or outfitted with accommodations and A/C for overnighting.

The basic layout is utilitarian. The shear of the boat has higher freeboard forward (52� - 132 cm) than aft (42� - 106 cm).


Distinguishing Features • High bow • Rounded tunnel


Dave East and his company, Eastward Boats, build power cats in Fort Pierce, FL. For purposes of full disclosure, Dave East worked as a Test Captain for for four years before acquiring the molds for this boat from Kevlacat, an Australian company known for building search and rescue boats. He then left BoatTEST and started Eastward Boats and has been happily building customized versions on this hull design ever since. East brought a very basic boat to our inspection to demonstrate what he called his “Lego” approach, which is adding components to a clean canvas, bounded only by imagination and a checkbook. The boat comes in four versions: center console, two pilothouse options, and a cuddy cabin - add “Lego” options to suit. Today we are evaluating the center console version. The hull design incorporates a high bow that can cruise at displacement speed into a steep head sea, something that most cats don’t do very well. The tunnel is also rounded for superior strength and softer landings, when compared to catamarans that have squared off tunnels. This also eliminates stress cracks in the tunnel. It is a proven hull design with a long history of providing a smooth dry ride and the strength to withstand the punishment of extreme conditions.

The rights to build from the Kevlacat design were purchased. Here we can see the mold with stepped hulls and rounded tunnel as it is prepped to make a new boat.

The 3” (7.6 cm) PVC pipes are for rigging. All of the bulkheads are constructed out of 1.5” (3.8 cm) high-density Coosa foam core. Limber holes are added to the bottom of each bulkhead and sleeved with 1” (2.5 cm) PVC to ensure that no water can be trapped in the hull.

Boat Inspection Bow

The freeboard forward is 52” (132 cm), measured from the water to the top of the caprail. The proven Kevlacat hull design, seen here with a pilothouse, is popular with fishermen, divers, and search and rescue outfits.


Coosa foam core is very strong and typically used only in high load areas, such as transoms, due to expense. However, Eastward has chosen to use it throughout the boat, which makes the boat very strong. 52

Capt. Steve inspects the slope in the deck toward the bow. There are storage lockers over each sponsor. MULTIHULLS Magazine | July/August 2019

Capt. Steve likes the stainless-steel rubrail on the Horizon 3000.

The self-draining cockpit has scuppers through solid glass, showing the thickness of the transom.

The foredeck (4’ L x 7’3” W – 1.2 m x 2.2 m) is raised and has a tension-hinged hatch over the anchor locker in the center. A bow roller and anchor windlass are options.


The livewell behind the helm seats holds 42 gallons (159 L). It also doubles as the fixed base for the helm chairs.


Note the outlines in the aft deck where the sun hits - this is where the fuel tanks are installed. Storage lockers in the deck behind the fuel tanks are an option.

The deck behind the center console measures 8’5” W x 7’8” L (2.56 m x 2.33 m). The 96-quart (90.84 L) Nice coolers serve double duty as seats with the addition of cushions and bolsters. An aft livewell with seating is optional to replace the cooler seats. | MULTIHULLS Magazine

We test lots of things – sometimes by brute force. Here Capt. Steve sheepishly replaces the arm pad. These armrests don’t flip up – who knew?

The helm chairs have flip bolsters, fixed armrests, and slide plates to adjust fore and aft. The seats can also reverse to face backwards. 53

The boat made it to the boat show without nav electronics but we measured the helm panel to find out what size displays would fit. Two 12” (30 cm) displays would fit on the 32” W x 13” H (81 cm x 33 cm) panel.

The boat has a stainless-steel wheel, offset on the left side of the console. It is on a tilt base and has a speed knob. A plexi windshield with drainage wraps the console and accessory switches with breakers are on the right. Below them are two stainless-steel drink holders with drains. A charging port is on the side of the throttles/shifter mount. Between the throttles and the wheel are ignition and start/stop switches. Above the wheel is the Evinrude engine display.

Capt. Steve demonstrates the footrest built into the console; there is a second by his knee. He’d like to see a toe kick added at deck level to tuck his toes into when standing.

Between the cambered console top and the windshield frame is a drainage channel.


A closeup of the accessory panel reveals how each switch has a corresponding breaker directly below it for quick resets. A charging port is located lower left.

Inside the helm console, there is a clearance of 4’1”H x 3’6”w x 3’8”L (1.2 m x 1.06 m x 1.12 m), which is more than enough space for the optional Porta-Potti.

This view inside the helm console shows the electrical installation – batteries, battery switches, and tinned wiring with heat shrunkterminals.

In front of the console is a 102-quart (96.5 L) Nice cooler with a seat cushion and padded backrest. MULTIHULLS Magazine | July/August 2019


The canvas T-top has 10 rocket launchers across the back and sides, and built-in outrigger mounts near the vertical supports over the helm.

Side Decks

The hardtop support is integrated into the console so clearance between the console and caprail is 19” (48 cm).

The boat has six 8” (20 cm) pull-up cleats.

Forward at idle speed, the Evinrudes sipped gas at a miserly 0.5 gph.

The Eastward Horizon 3000 has a LOA of 30’3” (9.2 m), a beam of 9’3” (2.83 m), and a draft of 14” (36 cm). With an empty weight of 4,000 lbs. (1,814 kg), 201 gallons (761 L) of fuel onboard, plus five people and test gear onboard, there was an estimated test weight of 7,255 lbs. (2,077 kg). With two Evinrude E-TEC G2 250-hp gas outboards turning 15” x 20” (38 cm x 50 cm) 4-bladed stainlesssteel props, the Horizon 3000 reached a top speed of 50.6 mph at 5600 rpms. The wind was blowing 15-20 knots, kicking up a light chop. When backing off to 3000 rpm and 23.3 mph, the best fuel economy, with a burn rate of 11.7 gph and a range of 537 SM was found, all while still holding back a 10-percent reserve of the boat’s 300-gallon (1,135 L) total fuel capacity.

The gunnel supports double as holders for boat hooks and fishing rods. The work boat finish of the bulwarks, with no liner, is intentional.

The cruising range of 537 miles at 23.3 mph on a 300-gallon (1,135 L) tank of gas makes the Horizon 3000 with her twin Evinrude 250-hp E-TEC G2s one economical cat.

Acceleration An unusual cap rail, designed to maximize freeboard, measures 5”w x 2.5”H x 2.5”w (12.7 cm x 6.3 cm x 6.3 cm) stepping up from outboard to inboard. | MULTIHULLS Magazine

Time to plane was 3.1 seconds. Zero to 20 in 3.9 seconds. Zero to 30 in 5.9 seconds. 55

The twin 250-hp Evinrude E-TEC G2 outboard engines are mounted on Armstrong engine brackets. There are some advantages to using Armstrong brackets: they add a little floatation to the boat, they allow for a full height transom for safety and, with the full transom, some of the engine noise is blocked. These brackets are mounted to the stern with 44 stainless bolts.

One final performance note: With one engine turned off and kicked up, the Horizon 3000 still made 36 mph - 1.7 mpg - 5100 rpm on one engine.


This is a fun boat to drive, with excellent handling. We didn’t get the chop we were hoping for, but we sliced right through any wakes we crossed. On acceleration, because there is very little bow rise, there is just the sensation of going faster and faster. When she turns there is a bit of an outboard lean, which we’d get used to.

The connecting platform and the two Armstrong engine brackets measure 7’10” w x 2’4” L (2.38 m x 0.7 m), providing space to add an optional swim ladder.

Capt. Steve checks out the steering/tilt mechanism and clean rigging installation of the E-TECs

Jumping wakes is fun in most boats. Capt. Steve labeled this one as “cool.”

We’d like to see a boarding ladder as standard equipment on the engine platform - this test boat didn’t have one. However, there are two options available: a 4-step folding ladder for the platform between the engines or a custom dive ladder for the side of the boat.

Engines and Outboard Brackets/Platform

Lifting a leg over the transom suffices when visiting the stern platform. However, an optional $1,900 transom door is available.


Two-stroke engines were always lighter, with less moving parts than 4-strokes. Now they can be more efficient and cleaner burning, too. MULTIHULLS Magazine | July/August 2019

Two-stroke engines were always lighter, with less moving parts than 4-strokes. Now they can be more efficient and cleaner burning, too. Capt. Steve once asked a boater how he liked his new Evinrude E-TECs. The boater said, “I love them.” They talked a while longer and Capt. Steve mentioned they were 2-stroke engines. “What? I had no idea,” was the concerned reply of the boater, and now he was prepared to find fault. Like many of us, our unenlightened boater remembered why we all had a bias against 2-strokes. Back in the day they were not friendly to the environment with high emissions problems. The reason was that with carburetors, fuel was delivered to the cylinders while the exhaust ports were still open, and some fresh fuel always escaped along with the exhaust. And there was no way around it, until direct injection came along. Today, with Evinrude E-TECs, the carburetor has been replaced by direct injection of fuel into the cylinder. Fuel is timed by a computer to reach the cylinder when the piston is on the upswing and the exhaust port is closed. Further fuel efficiency was attained by using computational fluid dynamics to design the E-TECs. Even compared to Evinrudes one generation back, these engines have 25% more torque, 25% better fuel efficiency and half the emissions of previous Evinrude engines. The Evinrude E-TEC G2s now have a California Air Resource (CARB) Rating of three stars for Ultra-Low emissions. Well, these aren’t your father’s 2-strokes. Evinrude has completely flipped the script with technological improvements. Time to let old 2-stroke biases die and get onboard with today’s better engines.

In the 200 to 300-hp range, Evinrude’s 250-hp E-TEC G2 had the lowest total emissions of hydrocarbons, nitrogen oxide, and carbon monoxide (scale on left). | MULTIHULLS Magazine

Evinrude E-TEC is the only marine engine ever to receive the EPA Clean Air Excellence Award - and they come in lots of colors.

How To Fish In The British Virgin Islands


Article courtesy of The Catamaran Company in the BVI

hen you come to the British Virgin Islands at the beginning of your chartering experience, you are in for a week of relaxation, beautiful views, and amazing local cuisine. You may think that this incredible getaway could not get any better, but what if I told you that you can also fish these beautiful and bountiful waters! In this article, you will find out how to acquire your Pleasure (Temporary) Fishing License, where you can get any equipment you might need, and also some other suggestions to make your BVI fishing experience as good as it can get. Â

Fishing Permits

The removal of any marine organism from BVI waters is illegal for non-BVI islanders without a recreational fishing permit. 62

To acquire your Pleasure Fishing License in the British Virgin Islands, you must submit an application to the Department of Conservation and Fisheries. The fee for the permit is $45.00 and it will be valid for 30 days from the day that it is received. Alongside the application, you must also submit a valid form of picture identification (passport or driver’s license). You can expect to receive the permit 1-5 business days after submitting the application, but we still recommend that you apply two weeks in advance just in case there is an error in your application and you are asked to resubmit it. There is also a credit card authorization form that you will need to fill out if you are completing the application and payment via e-mail. Both forms can be found on the BVI Government website at http://www. MULTIHULLS Magazine | July/August 2019 Children under the age of 18 are not required to have a fishing license, but the boat you are fishing from must hold a Fishery License. Fortunately, all boats at The Catamaran Company in BVI have this license and you can receive the vessels registration number through your charter broker.

Fishing Equipment Fishing Equipment can be rented by either Island Surf & Sail or Last Stop Sports, linked above. They both offer prearranged kits for light casting or trolling, depending on your preferred method of fishing. At The Catamaran Company, we recommend that you rent your gear from Island Surf & Sail as they are very familiar with the location of the base, and for a small service fee they even will leave the equipment you have rented on your boat prior to your arrival. You are also welcome to bring your own equipment into the BVI, but no spearfishing equipment

is permitted. In the BVI it is illegal to use or carry onboard a fishing vessel any spear gun, explosive, poison, or other noxious substances for fishing. If you are caught using any of this equipment, you risk being prosecuted or fined up to fifteen thousand dollars ($15,000.00). West End

What Will You Catch?

Fishing Locations

In the British Virgin Islands, there are both Fisheries Protected Areas and Fisheries Priority Areas. Fisheries Protected Areas are reserves, which serve to protect and preserve the breeding grounds and habitats of aquatic life. In these areas, it is prohibited to anchor, dive, build, or fish. Fisheries Priority Areas are designated locations set aside for registered and licensed vessels and persons to engage in fishing.

Fisheries Protected Areas: • Horse Shoe Reef, Anegada • Beef Island Channel • Hans Creek, Beef Island • The Sound, Ginger Island • Big Reef, Peter Island • Green Cay • Frenchman’s Cay • Taylor Bay, Virgin Gorda • South Sound, Virgin Gorda • The Sound, Salt Island • Money Bay, Norman Island • Santa Monica Rock • North Bay, Guana Island 64

Within these beautiful and bountiful waters, there are close to 300 different marine fish species, making it an absolute blast for recreational fishers. While trolling around the channel in your island hops, you have a great chance of catching surface feeding fish like mahi-mahi, kingfish, tuna, and mackerel. Go out a bit deeper to the North or South drop, and you might find yourself catching something much bigger! At these locations, you will find blackfin tuna, blue marlin, wahoo, sailfish, white marlin, or yellowtail tuna. We do ask that you release any marlin or sailfish that are caught as they are gamefish and greatly important to local fishing tour companies. Inshore you will find yourself catching barracudas, hardnose, Atlantic bonito, jacks, permit, snappers, tarpon, triggerfish, and parrotfish. If you want to catch and eat fish, we do recommend avoiding barracuda, snapper, jacks, triggerfish, parrotfish, and tarpon as they are predatory reef fish and are therefore more likely to have ciguatera poisoning. This type of fish poisoning can give you a very nasty, and sometimes fatal, food poisoning. If you are still unsure of what you have caught, on most boats you will be able to find a fish identification chart. If you are still unable to identify the fish, it is best to stay safe and release it back into the sea.

First off I want to say THANKS! to all of the wonderful folks who have answered my questions and offered tips & advice. I really appreciate it. Now here’s my latest question - We are sailing Out of the Blue on Sat 6/1 but only 8 will make the noon departure. 2 more are coming into Road Town on Sun 6/2 via the last Fast Ferry from STT. We need to figure out the best spot to pick them up that’s close to ferry dock for them & easy for us to get in & out of. What are your thoughts? And should we just use the dinghy & shuttle them from dock to boat? TIA for your help.

John Vernon Roger Zouhar an easy option is to choose a bay/marina on Tortola and have your next Day arrivals take a cab and meet you at that location. Like Reply 2w Edited View 1 more reply

Larry G. Vaughn When I have folks who arrive a day or more late, I meet them at Trellis Bay. If they can fly into Beef Island Airport they can literally walk to Trellis Bay. If they arrive in Road Town, It's about a 30 minute cab ride from the ferry terminal to Trellis Bay. In the interim, you can sail to Cooper Island, or Marina Cay, and still be close to Trellis. I've done this many times and it always works well. Like Reply 1w

What is “OPERATION SAIL IT FORWARD BVI”? The Catamaran Company formed this Facebook Group soon after Hurricane Irma in December 2017. It was formed for our Charter Guests to ensure they could support the local economy after a very destructive Category 5 hurricane named “IRMA” that took place in September 2017. Many of The Catamaran Company Charter Guests felt compelled to return immediately to the BVI post-IRMA to ensure they could continue to connect with local efforts and volunteer on the ground. By booking a charter and going sailing meant they could support the local economy, to do some good and have a sailing vacation at the same time. Each charter vacation was documented on the Facebook Group with images, video, tips, and local advice while Guests were sailing on their vacation and posts were shared with others through the Facebook Group who were waiting to return to the BVI. Today, OPERATION SAIL IT FORWARD BVI is used as an informational platform to better charter vacations with tips on how to get to BVI’s, itinerary advice, anchorage info, new spots open, provisioning tips and more. ‘OPERATION SAIL IT FORWARD BVI’ is a group dedicated to Charter Guests sharing their sailing experiences whilst on vacation in the British Virgin Islands. Not only does it enhance your vacation while underway but also makes the sailor more prepared prior to arrival. At the same time, we are supporting the local economy after hurricane “IRMA” by chartering a boat in the British Virgin Islands. Search “OPERATION SAIL IT FORWARD BVI” on Facebook Groups.

Colt Luedde is with Kelly Winters Luedde at Oil Nut Bay. May 20 at 11:36 PM

On day two of our time in the islands and we went to Oil Nut Bay for the first time. We went to the new dockside restaurant, pool and lounge area and it did not disappoint! The place was incredibly well done and the service was amazing. Jackie rocks - incredible story of her survival during Irma and we were so moved we had to jump up and give her a hug. Everything was beautiful and we will definitely be back!

Volvo Nacra 17 Europeans 2019

Gimson and Burnet in an Italian Sandwich


uggero Tita and Caterina Banti (ITA) continued their relentless march at the top of the leaderboard, notching up two more first places in their qualifying group, only falling foul in the last race of the afternoon. “We were fast upwind and going well downwind in the waves,” said Banti. “We just didn’t start quite so well in the last race and couldn’t pull through.” The only race the Italians didn’t win was taken instead by Great Britain’s Ben Saxton and Nikki Boniface who enjoyed getting out in the big waves after a few light-airs regattas. 74

“We did a lot of training over the winter in strong winds and big waves,” said Saxton. “It took us a race to remember what to do, but it felt good after that.” The 15-knot breeze did drop away to more like 10 knots by the end of the afternoon, although was still testing enough for the overworked crews doing all the gunnel running fore and aft along the 17-foot hulls. There were certainly enough gnarly moments to catch out some of the crews crashing into the back of the nastier waves. Two teams wiped out their aluminium bowsprits, leaving them

without the ability to fly the gennaker downwind. One of those was the Spanish team of Tara Pacheco and Florian Trittel who failed to get a result in the middle race but made amends with a 2,3 in the other two heats to sit in fourth overall. On the other side of qualification, another British crew, John Gimson and Anna Burnet, sailed a stellar day to rack up 1, 1, 2 and rise to second overall. The British team now find themselves sandwiched between two Italian crews, the leaders five points ahead and just a point behind in third overall, Vittorio Bissaro and Maelle Frascari.

MULTIHULLS Magazine | July/August 2019

Back in 15th place are Nathan and Haylee Outteridge, still discovering the quirks of the Nacra 17 in big waves. The Australian siblings made rapid progress last season in the flat water, and now it’s up to Nathan to see if he can master a different beast on these same Olympic waters that propelled him to 49er gold at London 2012. There’s a widespread acknowledgement that Weymouth Bay is proving a useful testing ground for the kind of big-wave swell that competitors might encounter at next year’s Olympic Regatta in Enoshima. Out of all the Olympic disciplines, the skiffs and the foiling catamaran find the waves the big-

gest challenge, so every day of experience in Weymouth Bay counts as a vital day of discovery on the

road to Tokyo. For more information, visit:

Japan Beats Australia to Sit Atop the Leaderboard by One Point


n front of large crowds lining the waterfront in downtown Manhattan, the Japan SailGP Team – helmed by double Olympic medalist Nathan Outteridge – beat off strong competition from Tom Slingsby’s Australia SailGP Team to win its first event in the inaugural SailGP season. An intense final match race took place between the two notorious rivals on the Hudson River racecourse, which saw drama before the start as the high-powered F50s, capable of intense speeds, made contact. A penalty to Australia saw Japan eventually get the better of the season’s leaders and take the victory in New York. “Here we knew it would be a challenge and what I am really proud about is that our whole team focused every single step of the way,” said Outteridge. “I am 76

relieved because we really needed a win, we deserved to win, and I am proud of everyone’s effort. The Aussies are, without a doubt, the team to beat, and I think now we are starting to even out the playing field and can’t wait until Cowes.” New York’s urban landscape provided an extra challenge for the world-class athletes this week as they battled shifting breezes and varied wind speeds on a smaller, more challenging racecourse. Boat handling and maneuvering on the foils was significantly more of a factor than ever before as the boats flew around the Hudson at the fastest speeds yet seen on SailGP, with the Australia team hitting a top speed of 48.69 knots (nearly 60 mph). It was the superior adaptability of the Japanese team that won the event on the Hudson. “It was tough conditions, but the Japan team was MULTIHULLS Magazine | July/August 2019

better. They’ve been better than us the last two days, and they deserve the win,” said Slingsby. “The way this sport has gone, and the way Nathan and my careers have gone has been amazing, and we’re so happy to be here racing each other; unfortunately, it’s on different teams, but it also makes it more fun.” The United States SailGP Team, led by Rome Kirby, gave the estimated 30,000 people lining the shore a reason to cheer when they crossed the finish line first in race five. Scoring its first ever SailGP win on home turf was a special moment for the United States SailGP Team, and a move that placed the crew third overall at the event. “The boys were pretty fired up to go racing today, and it showed,” said Kirby. “To win a race is awesome but we want to win events. But we’re happy to be on the podium, and it was awesome to see the crowd out there.” Only one point separates Japan and Australia on the Season 1 leaderboard, but now four teams have proved they are capable of winning races, putting the pressure on for the next event in Cowes. One team that will be looking forward to racing in Cowes is the Great Britain SailGP Team, which suffered a capsize on the Hudson that significantly damaged its wingsail. The British will be eager for | MULTIHULLS Magazine


redemption in front of their hometown crowd at the first European event of SailGP’s inaugural season. “It’s been a disappointing weekend all in all for us – we learned a lot from our capsize yesterday, and I’m proud as a team of how we came back after that setback,” said helmsman Dylan Fletcher. SailGP’s next stop is Cowes, UK, over the weekend of August 10-11, when the home of British sailing will be able to witness the intense racing and aweinspiring speeds of the F50s.

Challenge at Every Turn Determines Winners


hile last year was a drifter, this year was anything but for the 202 boats competing in the 2019 Bell’s Beer Bayview Mackinac Race. The 95th running of the longest consecutively held freshwater race in the country started Saturday, July 20 at noon on lower Lake Huron and served up a “little bit of everything” on its way to the finish line at Mackinac Island. The race included reaching, running, a lot of beating, and a pretty nasty storm thrown in on Saturday evening. There is a good mix of challenging conditions being more typical of the event than not, especially since the Cove Island course takes a radical hitch from the northeast to the west roughly halfway through. The beat after Cove Island Buoy (the turning mark) was 100 plus miles with winds in the mid-20s for a while. It had been a spinnaker reach/broad reach up until then, Place 1 2 3 4

interspersed with the entertainment of the storm. According to Bell’s Beer Bayview Mackinac Race Chairman Robert Nutter, the storm dumped torrential rain for three hours straight and harbored gusts in excess of 30 knots. “There were some breakdowns, but most everyone persevered and enjoyed a great race with average wind speeds of 15-20 knots.” First to the island, finishing on Sunday at 5:37 pm, was the Greene Formula 60 Earth Voyager, which finished the Cove Island Course in 27 hours, 47 minutes and 8 seconds to become overall winner of Division III for Multihulls. “That was pretty quick time, but we’ve done it in 14 hours before, so we’re always looking to one-up ourselves,” said Todd Howe (Rochester, N.Y.), who co-skippered with his brother Ryan and jokingly added that being first to the island has its advantages: “… getting drinks without waiting in

line and showers and sleep before the other boats come in.” Howe said his crew, which included his father Ray (who built the boat and has sailed the event with his sons since 1995 when multihulls were first allowed), had shortened sail some 40 to 50 miles into the course to repair a failed mainsail track. “We actually had no mainsail up when the storm hit. We saw 35 knots, and after the storm passed there was zero wind for what seemed like an eternity.” In the end, Earth Voyager averaged speeds of 21-22 knots for “hours and hours of very fast sailing.” Added Howe: “The top three boats in our class finished within 71 seconds of each other on corrected time, so I think we had to be the closest in finishes of all the classes.” A total of 20 classes sailed in three divisions at the 2019 Bell’s Beer Bayview Mackinac Race, which prides itself on being one of the most spirited events on the Great Lakes.
