2015 Paradox

First Public Introduction of our All New Version 3 A Class Catamaran
          Speed, stability, easy to tune for different conditions, value, elegant engineering.
          Benefiting from three years of structured testing, data collection and validation.
          Developed in close collaboration with Glenn Ashby.
          Built in Australia to aerospace standards.
Hull Shape
          High volume combined with narrow waterline beam through U shaped sections.
          Flat bottoms for maximum planing lift and minimum dynamic wetted area.
          Rocker shaped for responsive trimming: Easy transition from bow-down (lowriding) to bow-up (step back/takeoff).
          Bows have generous volume underneath and peaked low-freeboard tops for wave piercing and water shedding.
          Low windage and high stiffness.
          High modulus beams, Nomex cored hulls.
          Integrated construction, sealed low-stretch trampoline, streamlined rear beam.
          Future-proof foil case design, able to take any shape foil. Go from Z to L with no mods.
          Optimised Z foils with variable section (camber changes along the span).
          Full use of permitted lifting span.
          Precise rake adjustment through worm-gear, as used by proven foiling classes.
          Good foil support (no slop, no jamming) with precise toe-in through rotating bearings.
          Optional L/V foils, plug and play.

          All new: A leap forward from the existing dagger/cassette concept that we pioneered and has since been widely adopted.
          The new system allows much better refinement of rudder planform as well as easy rake adjustment on the water and greater safety.
          Superior grip at low speed, low drag and precise control when foiling.
          Customer deliveries expected to start in August 2015.
          Ongoing deliveries after September including containers to the Americas and Europe.
