Builder Comments

Total Performance
Any potential owner–a charter operator, or a cruising sailor– is interested in a boat’s performance. It helps to think of Searunner Total Performance as a series of parameters, constants that vary with the circumstances. These are some of the most important:

Sailing Performance––
SEARUNNERS are “sea-proven” designs. They have the speed, and maneuverability, to meet the demands of serious long-range seafaring and commercial operation. All of the vessels in the series, from the smallest to biggest, feature:

• High wing clearance to avoid wing pounding even when heavily loaded.
• Practical rigging, and sail options (including high performance) are integrated in each design. 

• “Reef-cruncher” low aspect keels provide for excellent windward performance and allow Searunners to be operated off the beach. 

• Fixed rudders made possible by the keel design so that unreliable “kickup” rudders are not required.   

Load-carrying Performance––
For the day-charter operator, having the most U.S. Coast Guard approved passenger carrying capacity for a given boat size means more flexible and thus more efficient operation.  In term charter operation, spacious interiors are easily equipped to suit any intended service. Both crewed and bare-boat charters can be accommodated at any level of amenity.  Most important of all–– If conditions of service change, Searunners can be more easily modified because of their basic construction. For the serious world cruising sailor, they can carry the load and offer sea-keeping competence under the widest variety of conditions. 

Cost Performance–– 
cost is very important to the operator because return on investment (ROI) depends in large part on minimizing the up-front cost of the vessel. Considered as a business, any boat in commercial use depends on having as short a “buy-back period” as possible (this refers to the payback of initial cost of vessels financed with private or financed investment capital). A successful charter operation is one that proceeds from a situation where debt service is a dominant expense to a place where the vessel is “paid off.”  This is because debt service on the vessel is typically one of the largest item of expense during the early years of a charter business.

Operating cost, the second element of the cost equation, includes daily manpower requirements, cost of maintenance, and repair/replacement costs of sails and major equipment like engines. As any charter operator will tell you not all boats have the same operating costs. Each of the foregoing is vitally dependent on the details of design and construction. 

Searunner Catamarans are designed to offer the most boat for the money in all respects. Consider the following: 

• Wood/Epoxy composite construction as applied in the construction of Searunner Catamarans results in immensely strong tough boats. Wood, a naturally replaceable resource, has physical characteristics that make it ideal for boat building. Its strength, stiffness, lightweight and resistance to fatigue give wood advantages over other materials. In combination with Epoxy a space age adhesive/moisture barrier, it is possible to make a very long lasting durable structure. This built-in durability means much higher returns over the life of a vessel used as a revenue-producing asset. 

• Construction cost advantages flow not only from the building method’s superior structural attributes but also from lower mold and shop setup costs. Final finishing is expedited because hull and panel finishing is less labor intensive.  And, It doesn’t stop here. Even the installation of deck hardware, masts and rigging are all cost enhanced by the nature of the wood composite construction. All of these savings can flow through to the bottom line— Searunners, feature for feature, have a lower initial cost to the buyer.  

• U.S. Coast Guard Certification as a cost advantage–– It makes very good sense for any multihull built today to be certified for passenger carrying for hire. This is because even boats that were originally intended for cruising or racing are often sold into the charter trade.  Boats sold with a going charter business attached can really enhance the price of a vessel on the used market.  For this reason it pays to think about “certification.” 

These are just some of the reasons we think Searunners offer the best combination of Total Performance on the market today.
