Maximum sustained speed to date has been 18 knots. She is a thoroughly ocean tested multihull, having sailed 20,000 nautical miles & completed an Atlantic crossing. She has been constantly upgraded by her current owner, who has sailed her on the East Coast. Volantis would be a good choice for a performance minded sailor looking for a very attractive ocean-going multihull with seaman-like cruising accomodations.
