Erik Lerouge

Erik Lerouge is a well know naval architect who is behind such multihull designs as the Lady Hawke 33, the Freydis 430, the Barramundi 470 and the Brazapi 51.

His elegant designs are fast through the water, quick to get going and have low windage compared to many modern designs.

Erik began his sailing career in a Tornado in 1970 and then bought an Iroquois with his father. He started designing multihulls in 1976, including the Pulsar 26,  a successful racing and cruising trimaran.

Many Erik Lerouge catamarans have rotating masts. If you spot a catamaran with a fast, sleek design and a curved cross-beam, the chances are that it is a Lerouge cat.
