Cure 55 Catamaran Build Update

The first Cure 55 catamaran (hull #1) has reached a big milestone in the build process. The cabin top is done and the Cure production team have spent the week attaching the structure to the hulls.

It’s always good to see a new build take place like this and with the cabin top windows being cut, the Cure 55 is beginning to show her lines.

Cure 55 Catamaran Taking Shape

Every part of the new Cure 55 was designed with a view to raising the bar in every area.

Her power to weight ratio means high performance but this is a design focused primarily on safety. This is a boat to cross oceans with speed and comfort.

The Cure 55 was designed by Paul Bury with support from the in-house Cure Design team.
