The 52 marks a whole new era in the design of cruising catamarans, as indeed did its predecessor, the famed 500.
With its diamond-shaped vertical bows, bevelled hulls, its as if levitated deckhouse and tall rig, the 52 is no ordinary catamaran, but its originality goes a great deal further than just its "outer" appearance, or even its interior layout.
Noble and luxurious materials, with soft shades for a harmonious interior continuous horizontal and fluent lines give the interior open and generous spaces continuity between exterior and interior life a slender exterior design for a boat with a strong character.
The boat is accessed via open aft transoms, facilitating boarding and disembarking broad sidedecks. With recessed deck hatches the cockpit is level with the saloon and has an outdoor lounge and sun-lounging area to starboard the fly bridge is reached either by a staircase leading from the cockpit, or by another leading from the deck on the starboard side.
The steering station can be adjusted to three different positions (starboard, centre or port), giving the skipper perfect visibility under sail or when manoeuvring.
