Kurt Hughes Multihull (Catamaran and Trimaran) Designs

Added in Catamaran on the August 4th, 2006

Kurt Hughes is a common name in sailing designs. His designs are successful simply because he follows the simple rule of the thumb - keeping the solution simple! Complex designs and methods to solve a watercraft problem will ultimately lead to more complex problems. Through many years, boat designers and builders have come up with methods and techniques to solve those problems, and among those techniques are those proven and effective ones. Kurt Hughes designs follow the rule of simplicity, while offering what goes best for challenging water and what goes best in the hands of a sailor.

Kurt Hughes

Kurt Hughes catamarans and trimarans are usually wider, thus providing more safety since a wide multihull will be much more difficult to tip over. Kurt Hughes designs also contain the consistent feature of having long and narrow hulls. It helps the vessels to perform better in rough seas and produce rather smooth sailing experiences. They are also made to carry the lowest possible weight, in effect accomodating for more onboard equipment and easier hull grounding and handling. They also have central cockpit based controls, again making things much easier for sailors and making solo sailing possible on many of his designs.

His power catamaran and power trimaran designs come in a very impressive portfolio. From multihull cruisers to power sailing catamarans. His 60 Bridgedeck is a classic example of incredible timeless catamaran designs. It is 60 feet in length and 60 feet in beam and contain all the ementies expected in a modern class cruising catamaran.
