The new Sea Speed designed "Quad Cat" was launched late Janurary 2012. Built by The Australian Thai Team in Thailand the new high speed aluminium catamaran has shown excellent results at sea trails in the Gulf of Thailand. Named Blu Anda 122 is the first vessel built by the builder and if the results are any indication they will build many more in the future.

 

The 12.3 Metre Power Cat is powered by four (4) Suzuki 250 H.P. four stroke Outboard Engines giving a top speed of over 37 knots and a  fully loaded speed of 35 knots with 30 passengers. By all reports this is the first time the quad' outboard application has been sucessfully completed with high speed catamarans of around this size with Suzuki outboards.  Fuel consumption is suprisingly good with a total of 80 ltrs/Hr at 22 knots and 130 ltrs/hr at 28 knots.

The sophisticated fuel system includes 3 off 200ltr aluminium fabricated seperate fuel tanks for each hull giving a range of over 300 Nautical Miles at 25 knots. The fuel tanks are situated below deck in a fully ventilated compartment with Vetus vents, fans and stainless steel grills. The compartments have vapor detectors with alarms at the helm.

 

This new power cat is a charter vessel set up to do day trips in coastal water operations. The seating is custom made by the builder to a new Sea Speed design and are fully fabricated bench type with cushions tray table and hand rests. The seating is configured in a back to back arrangement with lightweight honeycomb tables between them allowing for dining in confort during rough trips. The deck layout has a small galley forward.

 

The aft' deck has a fold down platform which can be used for both beach landing and as a snorkeling/dive platfrorm at sea. The platform is attached to a fixed platform which extends out past the outboards. This is complemented by three fresh water shower units, one overhead plus one resessed units each side. Beside the platform is an aft' toilet compartment which is full size which is a nice change from the crampt set ups of similar vessels of this size.

 

On board white goods include flat screen T.V.s with live streaming GPS navigation abd dvd entertainment plus sterio sound system and Bosh speakers. also a 4 stage cctv system.

 

Speed, confort, fuel economy and operational options such as day cruise, dive boat, evening cruise, party boat, ferry, etc all add to the perfect large outboard driven catamaran.
