Boat Show Special Package
Excess Catamaran's newest and sportiest model, the Excess 14, has just completed her World Boat Show Tour and is now available for delivery on the Gulf Coast of the United States.
Launched in Les Sables d'Olonnes, France, in August and code-named "Rocket," she was delivered by the Excess Team for her World Debut at the famous Cannes Yachting Festival. She then sailed to Italy for the Salone Nautico 2023 (Genoa International Boat Show), followed by a stop in Spain at the SalonNautico International de Barcelona. "Rocket" was then sailed the 130 miles to Palma and loaded on a ship bound for Florida.
The Murray Yacht Sales Team retrieved her from the ship in Ft. Lauderdale and sailed her to our St. Petersburg. office for sea-trials, press events, and commissioning. She made her United States debut at the Miami International Boat Show in February and is currently moored at our St. Petersburg office on Salt Creek.
"Rocket" was built with great attention to detail under the watchful eyes of the entire Excess Team. Contact us for more information and details of "Rocket's" Boat Show Special Package.
WELCOME ON BOARD!
This catamaran is the outcome of innovative architecture, and unbiased research work seeking 'out of the box' solutions. The Excess 14 is designed around a layout never seen before on the market, both in the owner's version and in the charter version. More sensations yet everything you'd expect from a cruising boat: this is the challenge taken up by the Excess 14!
THE EMBODIMENT OF EXCESS DNA
Instantly recognizable design:
Take a low boom, reduced windage thanks to lower freeboard, taut lines, and redesigned hull windows, and you get a catamaran with a distinctive look! Add an aft-set coachroof, a forward stepped mast, a composite bowsprit (as standard) as well as inverted and inclined bows for more fun! Finish off with an exposed forefoot and you have a dynamic catamaran that's ready for adventure.
For more sensations at the helm, you know our preference: helm stations right at the stern in direct contact with the rudders and a good view of the sails, as inspired by monohulls.
What you may not know is that visibility is optimal onboard the Excess 14, through untinted windows - this is an Excess exclusive on the market!
This model features an optimized fins design, and the rudder blades have been extended! A direct steering system has been chosen, with textile lines, for a better helm feel (because yes, it is important!)
Fundamental, unbiased research!
Thanks to our collaboration with VPLP design, the lines of the Excess 14 have benefited from an understanding of ocean racing. Enriched by their Expertise and cutting-edge software, this model is designed with a forward-set rig, a square-top mainsail, and a large overlapping genoa (as standard) to optimize the sail area to displacement ratio.
As it was impossible to leave it at that, bridge deck clearance was increased for better passage through the water, and the hulls were designed asymmetrically to reduce interference drag.
Continuing in this innovative approach, there is also:
- A lower center of gravity
- An optimized structure (foam sandwich, carbon reinforcements, etc.)
- A new longitudinal volume distribution At Excess, we don't do things by halves!
MORE SENSATIONS AND EVERYTHING YOU'D EXPECT OF A CRUISING BOAT
The Excess 14 is a cruising catamaran that also offers the comfort and modularity of its living spaces.
The goal was to maintain volume and good headroom, all this in a warm and as bright as ever interior design.
In the hulls, you'll find wide, very comfortable beds, and bathrooms featuring a separate shower. For setting off on your adventure, large and subdivided storage spaces have been created!
And because there's no compromise between sailing and living spaces, the retractable chart table is really ingenious!
A LAYOUT UNSEEN ON THE MARKET
