Below are some examples of what sets Mauliola apart from others in her class. More than $6 million has been spent to make her the way she is. Come see her and we'll show you more.
More safety features than any of the catamarans in her class. These are material features like, all reefing, furling and foresail tensionning (with the use of RAMS) is done from within the safety and protection of the aft cockpit and at either helmstation. Each of the 2 helmstations have the full complement of electronics providing all the information one needs to be safe in the worst of conditions and at night. And, the design of both helmstations, allow full view of the sails and the horizon.
More features to allow and enjoy very remote cruising, much more than any other catamaran in her class. Some examples: dagger boards and rudders can be raised to flush with the bottom providing less than 2’ of draft, allowing the entering of very special places (that others cannot) as well as allowing anchoring nestled in very close to protected places at virtually untouched islets; solar (2100 W) and a hydro-generator + 23kw lithium iron phosphate batteries can power all of its systems; being a supreme passage maker, well capable of upwards of 400 nautical mile days, etc.
There is a modern, roomy salon with a large center island and spacious countertops, dining table, a settee, and 30cf of refrigeration creating the comfort and luxury of a great room, with added indoor/outdoor function through opened windows to the cockpit dining. Its 4 cabin layout has modern and customized appointments.
This 65' fast carbon fiber catamaran, Morrelli & Melvin design with a priority to both strength and lightness, together with significant R&D and improvements done since launch to now, resulted in:
Morrelli & Melvin Designed
All reefing and foresail furling is done from within the safety of the aft cockpit and at either helmstation. – Includes (2) RAMS, one each for the staysail and reacher tacklines, so that the luff tensions can be safely adjusted from the cockpit, particularly when changing foresails.
Twin Helm Stations
Solar and Hydro Production
Dorades — Unique Fresh Air Source
Exceptional Refrigeration Capacity
Salon roof designed with gutters for water catchment that goes direct to water tanks (when desired).
Better Than New
Electrcial and Electronic Remote Display
Forward Bows Storage
New 23Kw lithium iron phosphate batteries (not lithium ion), with 24V/960A capacity.
Special Lazy Jack System
Special Lazy Jack system which reduces problems and risks of raising the full batten and square topped mainsail.
Unique Access For Maintenance
Safe and Easy Swim Ladder System
An outdoor sink is in the outdoor cockpit, near the barbecue, which has hot and cold fresh water, salt water as well as a foot pump if electricity were to be lost.
Special Rudder Well
Special Rudder well “Swisher Plate” system, with Venturi’s removing water when under way, to allow the full water line length of the vessel to be used (not having the Stern cut out).
Easy Anchor Chain Storage
Anchor chain locker designed so that even though the chain is 7/16” and is 83 m long, it doesn’t have to be flaked as it stacks nicely and easily without coming even close to the windlass.
Shallow Water Access
Engine driveshafts exit the inboard side to allow for only about 25 inches (64 cm) of draft (with daggerboards and rudders raised).
(2) 4000 W inverters (so if one goes we still have another one).
Removable Helmstation Protection
Spectra 400 System
(2) New Spectra 400 (Min 16 gal/hr each) with several special maintenance and usage features, for example,when flushed with fresh water, the filters and membrane are treated such that no growth occurs for 30 days.
Turnbuckles on whisker stays facilitates easily keeping them properly tightened (a too easy to underestimate the importance of these kinds of things for stressed conditions). These stays connect to a titanium bar (inside the crossbar) instead of the stainless bar (eliminating rust factor there).
Handmade Acetal Use
15" Displays at Each Helm Station
Master electrical on/off switch easily accessible for safety.
