Aqua Cat 14 Catamaran

The larger version of one of the world's most popular one design catamarans brings you performance, simplicity and weight carrying capabilities not offered in other catamarans this size. Featuring wide, flat bottom hulls with turned up bows and a small keel skeg, the pontoon design is unequaled in weight carrying capacity and planing speed. The small keels have replaced the daggerboards used on the smaller Aqua Cat and allow for easy beaching thru the surf. Designed for ocean sailing or inland lakes this cat has it all. The Aqua Cat 14 is ideal for four large adults or where capabilities to support 1,000 lbs. are needed.

The boomless sail rig supported by the tubular "a" frame provides simplicity and safety not found in traditional wire shroud designs. One sheetline and a simple tiller arrangement result in sailing simplicity, fun and excitement. Weighing in at 230 lbs. and with a 6-1/2 foot beam, it can easily be car topped or trailered to your favorite spot on the beach. Constructed of hand laid fiberglass, anodized aluminum tubing and stainless steel fasteners, maintenance is at a minimum. The rudder system is durable all aluminum construction with gudgeons through bolted to aluminum plates inside the hull and features wide performance designed aluminum blades. Positive foam flotation in each hull, plus the added feature of the mast flotation ball provide a measure of confidence and safety.

Standard features include spring loaded kick up rudders, 105 sq. ft. Dacron two colored sail, a 360 quick release cleat and rudder lift systems. Available with white hulls with red side stripes and four sail combinations, the Aqua Cat offers a performance fun package not to be missed. Experience the Aqua Cat feeling.

RESORT SPECIAL VERSION OF AQUA CAT 14 CATAMARAN

Exceedingly popular as a resort rental craft, the Aqua Cat 14 has proven itself as an excellent investment. Its simplicity allows use by the most inexperienced and offers a stable, safe and fun filled package for the Hotel Guest.

American Sail manufactures a slightly slower version of this popular catamaran for use in resort locations where most sailors are novices. The resort special features a smaller sail (90 square foot), a shorter mast and eliminates the 360 main sheet cleat to require the sailor to hold the rope controlling the sail thus reducing capsize possibilities.

Sailboat Review: Light and Lively Excess 14

  • By Mark Pillsbury
  • November 7, 2023

Excess 14 Catamaran

When Groupe Beneteau’s Excess Catamarans introduced its first model in 2019 , a test sail in winds approaching 40 knots made it abundantly clear that the 38-foot-7-inch Excess 12 wasn’t just another pretty new face in the ever-growing cat crowd. That boat could sail.

A recent light-air outing aboard the company’s newest model, the Excess 14, was perhaps equally revealing. With a hull length right around 44 feet and a beam of 25 feet, 9 inches, this is a big, roomy and comfortable cruising cat. But in just 5 knots of breeze, sailing with the main and working jib set, the chart plotter’s speed over ground read 4.1 knots heading upwind with the sails sheeted hard. A little later, with the jib rolled up and the code zero unfurled and set on a sprit that brings the boat’s LOA to 52 feet, 5 inches, our boatspeed was 5.7 knots on a reach in wind gusting to maybe 6. 

Those were conditions that would have left a lot of similar-size multihulls parked, but the Excess 14 felt relatively lively underway and “tacked quickly,” I wrote in my notes. I also noted that line handling was easy, thanks to sheet winches within reach of the helms and an electric Harken FlatWinder winch that handles a traveler mounted outboard of a comfortable bench seat that spans most of the transom.

For the record, I’m a fan of the Excess brand DNA that calls for outdoor helm stations located far aft on either stern. Sitting at them underway, you can see and hear the water rush by and feel the breeze in your face. You know, like when you’re sailing. You can converse with people seated in the cockpit, and you have easy access to the salon should you care to set the autopilot and keep watch out of the elements, through windows that provide nearly 360 degrees of visibility.

Open to fresh ideas, the team at Excess started with a blank slate when they conceived the 14, and they gave naval architects at VPLP Design some liberty in terms of hull design in their quest for better performance. VPLP, drawing from their experience with a long line of racing machines, then tested and ultimately opted for asymmetrical hulls—think of a monohull sliced lengthwise down the middle and then separated—that tend to reduce the size of the waves produced between the hulls, thereby reducing drag that slows down the boat.

The design team also toyed with replacing the stub keels affixed to most cruising cats, including earlier Excess models, with the sort of lifting daggerboards found on high-performance cats. They dropped that idea, however, because daggerboards add complexity when sailing and take away from living space below. Instead, the 14 has more-efficient, deeper and thinner fixed foils that increase draft to 4 feet, 10 inches—a few inches deeper than what you would expect to find on cats of a similar size.

There are also interesting ­innovations found in the 14’s interior, where saving weight has a direct relationship to livelier sailing. Relatively lighter carbon-fiber cloth is employed in some structural areas for strength, and some bulkheads are infused using foam coring. And there’s less wood used in furniture, drawers and stowage areas. Overhead, the cabin top is injected-molded, eliminating the need for a liner. And in hulls with two staterooms and two head compartments located amidships, the toilets share a single holding tank to reduce plumbing, while the staterooms share one larger Webasto air-conditioning unit, saving the weight and wiring required for two. 

Excess is also involved with Groupe Beneteau’s overall efforts to adopt more-sustainable building practices. Laminates used for the performance mainsail and genoa are recycled material, and hemp fibers are used in place of fiberglass and injected with partly bio-sourced resin in some nonstructural parts such as locker lids. Even furniture knobs have been replaced by neat little loops of rope.

Buyers have a few decisions to make when ordering an Excess 14. There is a four-­stateroom version that would be well-suited for charter, and there are a couple of three-stateroom options. In one, the owner gets a large fore-and-aft bunk aft, a sitting area with a desk at the foot of the companionway, a head and shower forward, and a walk-in closet in place of a V-berth. A second plan, called the Transformer Version, has bunks far forward that can be folded down for sleeping or up for stowage. (One company photo shows a paddleboard stashed away there.) That’s the layout we saw in Miami and the one I’d choose if it were my boat. In all the layouts, the salon gets lots of sunlight and has a pleasant, airy feeling with the sliding door and window open aft. There’s an abundance of fridge and freezer space adjacent to the galley to port. Dining tables are indoors, at the front of the salon, and in the cockpit. 

The Miami boat included a pair of optional 57 hp Yanmar diesels with saildrives (45 hp engines come standard) that pushed us along at 7.8 knots in cruising speed and 8.4 knots in get-home-quick mode. Gear included an electric winch at the starboard helm to make raising the main easier, as well as engine controls at either wheel to make docking simpler. Davits are available, as are canvas Biminis over the wheels for shade.

The boat also had an optional seating area on the flybridge. It reminded me a bit of a stretch version of the footwell that you’d find on a Sunfish. I’m not sure if it’s an option I’d choose, and with the boom set relatively low on the mast, it wouldn’t be a place to lounge underway. Some might like to sit up there while at anchor to enjoy the view though.

The sail-away price for the boat we visited is right around $980,000, but that’s loaded with gear, including an Onan generator and a Pulse rig and sail package that includes a 70-foot-8-inch mast instead of the standard 64-foot-11-inch spar. The upwind Pulse rig sail area of 1,453 square feet will be appreciated by those who sail in variable conditions and like to go fast; in the trades, the standard 1,323 square feet might suffice, and the shorter rig would let you just squeeze under most Intracoastal Waterway bridges.

Me? I was happy to have the added horsepower provided by the bigger square-top main. Sailing a big cat in 5 knots of breeze isn’t always fun, but aboard the Excess 14, we had a jolly old time.

FastCat14™ Catamaran Reviews

I absolutely love my FastCat 14. It really is a great day boat and fishing boat with plenty of room for all of my gear, friends, coolers, and more. I have it packaged with a Honda 9.9 and it pushes this boat around just fine. Its great being able to get into shallow areas that many boats cannot. When I get to the beach I pull it up on the beach and use it as a day bed. The new bow padding and scotty rod holders make me jealous. Great boat!

This boat has exceeded expectations in every way. It is stable, durable, eye-catching, and very functional. There is so much room on it. I've had many fun outings on it with friends and family. Satisfied owners, on their own, created a Facebook group for those who have already bought one to get the most out of their boats by sharing information with other owners. Prospective buyers have joined to ask questions and learn—most who do get one.

My 3rd inflatable but my first Cat. WAAAY more space and 15% faster with the same 20hp motor. 24 mph Highly recommend.

I recently purchased the FASTCAT14 by Sea Eagle, and I couldn't be more thrilled with my decision. This inflatable catamaran offers an exceptional boating experience. The FASTCAT14's inflatable catamaran design provides ample space for four passengers. The user-friendly design makes it a perfect choice for spontaneous trips, and the inflatable nature of the boat ensures easy storage when not in use. The FASTCAT14 truly shines when it comes to cruising. The swivel seats make socializing a joy, and the canopy provides excellent shelter from the elements. The boat's stability, coupled with the Honda 9.9 engine, makes cruising a seamless and enjoyable experience. In conclusion, the FASTCAT14 by Sea Eagle has exceeded my expectations. It's the perfect blend of comfort, convenience, and performance, making it an excellent choice for those seeking a versatile and enjoyable boating experience. Whether you're a seasoned boater or a first-time enthusiast, the FASTCAT14 is sure to leave a lasting impression.

Excess 14 Review

Excess 14 catamaran model was revealed to the world by Excess Catamarans, part of the Group Beneteau , at an international press conference in 2022. And now, those who want to buy this sailboat, which VPLP marine engineers and designers worked on, are on the waiting list for the second half of 2024.

This newest model in the latest Excess range and its resounding success among yachtsmen has finally established Excess Catamarans as a successful competitor in the double hull cruiser market. For such a young shipyard, this is a great achievement.

But we still remember that many sailors and businessmen in the yachting world met with bewilderment the decision of the Group Beneteau to create practically its own competitor when Excess Catamarans first introduced its first cat. This was because the first Excess somewhat disappointed the yachting world with their similarity to the Lagoon. But the shipyard quickly overcame the costs of growth, which was already evident with the built-from-scratch Excess 11 , and especially so with the release of the brilliant Excess 14.

TopRik team is delighted to be able to offer customers a boat with the freedom and lifestyle that only a twin hull can offer. That being said, Excess 14 owners will not lack the thrill and pleasure of sailing as this catamaran has some serious speed and responsiveness.

Excess 14 by TopRik Team

At the 2022 Cannes Yachting festival some lucky representatives of the topRik team saw, felt with their own hands and walked around the sailing catamaran Excess 14 from transom to bowsprit for the first time. That September the shipyard Excess Catamarans was showcasing two double-hull sailboats and the Excess 14 reveal was the world premiere.

Excess 14 Review

Even from the pier you can already appreciate many of the features of the new cat. A significant height of the boards is striking, which ensures high stability of the catamaran even at maximum speed and in heavy seas.

Excess 14 Review

On the transom there are powerful enough davits to lift and hold the motor boat. Between the davits below there is a compartment for rescue equipment: rafts, oars, pumps, etc.

Wide transom steps, finished with anti-slip teak, also serve as a bathing platform, but, of course, stationary. You can only raise and lower here a ladder for descending into the water. Pay attention to how conveniently the lower part of the step protrudes - just a foot further from the curvature of the side. This is an additional convenience, if the boat is moored side-to - no need to climb over the side to get on the deck or climb from the yacht to the pier.

At first glance, even from the pier, you can see biminis above the control stations, which are mounted on solid supports - stainless steel pipes. The continuation of the roof of the cabin (or saloon) hanging over the cockpit creates a cozy atmosphere, protecting the cockpit guests from the sun and rain.

An interesting effect: when you look at the Excess 14 from the pier, the catamaran seems like a very small yacht. But when you get on board, just step on the cockpit deck, you forget that the cat is actually small - just over 13 meters. The merit of naval architects and designers is that they used the width of the boat so successfully and provided the crew and passengers with so much space, volume and height. You don’t feel cramped in this spacious cockpit, where more than 10 people can sit on the corner sofa at the table, large sunbed and transom sofa, and this is not counting the skipper at the helm and his assistant at the helm station on the other side.

Excess 14 Review

While several experts were calculating the capacity of the cockpit, which is important for our clients who are in the charter business, the skipper of the topRik team traditionally went to evaluate the helms.

It seems that his disappointed look is connected only with the fact that he cannot find fault with anything in terms of organizing a skipper post.

Excess 14 Review

Even taking photos of control posts from several angles did not help to identify the shortcomings. Adjustable seats, thoughtful arrangement of the helm panel and winches, the presence of baskets where halyards and sheets are dropped - everything is provided here for ease of control. The panel behind the helm contains all navigation equipment, a large chartplotter , as well as sensors that allow you to control the operation of all Excess 14 equipment.

On the port side, the control post differs only in a smaller number of winches. For some reason, our leader could not find a photo of this post from the exhibition, so we used the official one.

Excess 14 Review

But the starboard side is presented in all angles, and one of them is remarkable in that it demonstrates not only the excellent organization of winches and halyards, but also the width of the deck on the starboard side, as well as convenient handrails on the roof. Moving here is free and safe.

Excess 14 Review

And pay attention to the fact that most of the windows from the cockpit to the saloon are not tinted. This is done so that all parts and opposite hulls of the catamaran are visible from both control posts.

But the deck and handrails along the edge of the roof from a different angle. We appreciate these safe movement features in combination with the presence of high lifelines on both sides.

Excess 14 Review

These wide transparent three-piece doors, which move apart and slide in all variations, lead from the cockpit to the saloon. Yes, Beneteau Group’s daughter company could not help but use this technique of superyachts - increasing the total usable area by combining two different areas.

Excess 14 Review

The photo below clearly demonstrates how wide the opening gets when you make full use of this sliding structure. And by sliding it to the other side, you can serve dishes from the saloon galley to the cockpit or organize a bar counter from the galley table if you want to throw a party on the yacht.

Excess 14 Review

The divided galley amidships occupies the entire width of the common deck. Everything here is perfectly organized for cooking and storing food. There is a gas stove (or electric at the request of the buyer), a microwave oven, an oven and a full set of auxiliary kitchen equipment.

Pay attention to the metal doors of the floor cabinet on the starboard side - these are refrigerators and freezers. By the way, the same freezer door located in the cockpit is perfectly visible from here. The saloon refrigeration equipment can be used for non-perishable products, and the cockpit freezer is regularly replenished with drinks, ice cream and other products that you want to always have on hand.

Once again, we note the attention of Beneteau Group and now Excess Catamarans to the "little things" that speak loudest of all about how manufacturers care about the comfort and safety of the crew and passengers. We are talking about rounding all joints and edges of furniture – can’t go wrong with this move.

In order to view the entire saloon, let's change the viewpoint to see that the room is divided into several zones. You have already seen the kitchen, now it's the turn to evaluate the dining and working area - the chart table.

Excess 14 Review

You can see for yourself how roomy the Excess 14’s saloon is: 10 more people in the saloon can join the diners (or rest) in the cockpit. This is a solid application for a crowded party while staying in the marina with guests from neighboring yachts.

But while the passengers are sunbathing, eating or relaxing, the skipper from time to time needs to sit down at the helm table in the saloon. Here is installed equipment similar to what you have already seen on the helm panel in the cockpit. This is also a photo from the official brochure, adding a little more atmosphere and romance to our report.

Excess 14 Review

The skipper's table is positioned so that he does not get too bored while charting or checking the course. His friends will always support him, sitting next to him and passing something tasty or refreshing.

Excess 14 Review

Despite the fact that the roof of the cabin, for obvious reasons, is devoid of hatches, there is enough natural light and natural ventilation in the cabin. In addition to a huge sliding door, light and air enter here through panoramic windows, in which opening portholes are mounted.

From the saloon it is natural to go down to the cabins located in both hulls of the catamaran.

This “comfortable and spacious” is not an advertising phrase, we often caught ourselves reminding each other: you are on a boat less than 14 meters long... We examined the Excess 14 catamaran with 3 cabins. In this version, one hull is traditionally given over to the owner's cabin with a large island double bed, a living area and a bathroom. This is what it looks like from the living room. As you can see, there is enough height, light and air due to portholes and skylights.

Excess 14 Review

There doesn't seem to be enough storage space here, some of the topRik team's experts have already begun to chalk this up as a drawback, but they've been stopped by those who have made it to the bow of the master cabin. The critics quickly hid their notes, as they were convinced that there was more than enough storage space. As you can see, even the largest family or group of friends doesn't have to limit themselves to picking too much of what they need on a cruise.

Excess 14 Review

In the left hull of the 3-cabin version, there are 2 VIP cabins with double island beds and private bathrooms each. All cabins have separate showers.

In addition to this option, the manufacturer offers a 3-cabin convertible version, when two single beds are placed in the bow of the right hull. A normal option for a family with children or if the yacht is steered or served by invited crew.

Excess 14 Review

The 4-cabin option offers 8 berths in two cabins in each hull with private bathrooms.

For charter voyages, you can also use a place in the forepeak and organize a berth for 2 people in the cabin, using a sofa, a bench and lowering the table to the level of the sofa, in total - 11 berths, and there is enough space for everyone on this "small" catamaran.

Since we are talking about the forepeak, it's time to take a look at the Excess 14 foredeck. At the exhibition, the manufacturers did not advertise it as a place to rest. Probably, they were afraid that visitors would start checking the elasticity of the nets, which many call a trampoline.

Excess 14 Review

We agreed that the catamaran would certainly be equipped with a sunbathing area in the bow, and when we unfolded the brochure, we realized that we were not mistaken.

Excess 14 Review

We took notice of Pulse Line sailing equipment option, which, unlike the standard one, is a high-performance version. This option features a square top mainsail like the standard version, but when ordered with the Pulse Line mast increases by almost 2 meters, and 12 square meters are added to the sail area on the windward side, as well as an elongated composite spier, to which Code 0 is attached. Since we could not photograph ourselves under sails, we are posting an official photo that demonstrates the installation of Pulse Line.

Excess 14 Review

To increase the sail area, a forward mast and an elongated bowsprit serve. Instead of the self-aligning staysail typical for most yachts of this class, the Excess 14 has a 120% overlap of the genoa to increase the sail area. We have seen in practice that the boom is located low and is accessible from the saloon roof, so to operate the mainsail there is no need to climb the mast ladder to attach a halyard or reach the reef line.

Advantages of Excess 14

As usual, let's start with the disadvantages instead. Our expert, who controlled the storage areas, nevertheless made a point that there are not enough of them for the galley in the saloon.

All the experts responsible for testing the various positions have unanimously agreed that the Excess 14 catamaran has the following advantages:

  • high seaworthiness, including speed and performance, which were achieved solely due to the found reserves and optimization of weight, steering and other structures, making the cost of a catamaran quite affordable for those who want to change from a monohull to a cat;
  • safety when moving around the boat, as well as on a long cruise with changing weather conditions;
  • enough comfort to make autonomous sailing a real pleasure and not a survival experience in extreme conditions;
  • ease of handling, in which an experienced skipper can handle the catamaran alone even in adverse weather conditions.

Reviews of Excess 14 from Professionals

Here are reviews of the Excess 14 catamaran from well-known yachtsmen, experts and journalists from the leading online maritime magazines Yachting World and Yacht World and - Rupert Holmes and Zuzana Prochazka respectively. But first let’s give a word to a group of experts from SAIL magazine who test vessels for Best Boat award.

SAIL Magazine

SAIL editors reviewed the new Excess 14 cat during the boat's US debut at the Miami International Boat Show. This is the first look at this 14 m double hull sailing yacht from Excess Catamarans, which is part of the Beneteau Group.

SAIL journalists, well known as experienced yachtsmen, identified several features on their first encounter with the Excess 14 to ensure that the yacht harmoniously combines cruising comfort with the pleasure of sailing.

The cooperation of the shipyard with VPLP Design resulted in the creation of completely new contours of the hulls and the exterior as a whole. Innovative asymmetric hulls reduce drag on the water mass, and the higher bridge position significantly reduces the impact force in waves. To improve sailing upwind, the keels have also been redesigned - they have become thinner and reach more depth.

SAIL editors also found significant changes in the steering system. The Excess 14's twin helms sit directly above the rudders, which have also been lowered to greater depths. The yacht is equipped with a Dyneema steering system which allows you to feel the helm to the maximum.

Experts noted that naval architects and engineers paid great attention to reducing the mass of a sailing catamaran. To achieve this, foam was used as bulkhead filler instead of plywood, and the load-bearing bulkheads were further lightened with carbon fiber.

A lighter deckhouse design was made possible by having the mast mounted on the deck rather than on the cabin. It also made it easier to access the mainsail via three steps to the boom.

Reviewers cited Thibaut de Montvalon, Excess Catamarans' director, who stated that the new Excess 14 aims to make up for the lack of sailing catamarans for those monohull owners who don't want to sacrifice the pleasure and feel of sailing for the comfort of a double hull sailboat.

Rupert Holmes

Yachtsman and author of Yachting World, at the start of its Excess 14 test report, goes into detail on how Beneteau Group’s developers ensure the high seaworthiness of the new range of catamarans and at the same time offer them at an affordable price.

Rupert Holmes began the review by describing sailing the Excess 14. The boat's speed rose and fell between 7.4 and 8 knots while sailing upwind with a true wind of 12-14 knots. He noted that at the same time the helm is very responsive, and the boat easily maneuvers and quickly responds to changes in the trim of the sail.

Aside from the lack of roll, this kind of sailing experience and true cruising speeds are more to be expected from a 50-foot (15.2 m) single hull cruiser. This is despite the fact that the Excess 14 is a very spacious platform 26 feet (8 m) wide, and it was not produced by a highly specialized manufacturer of single expensive powerful yacht structures, but by the world's largest shipbuilder for all kinds of of yachtsmen.

Rupert cited shipyards such as Outremer and Marsaudon Composites as examples, that produce really great catamarans. But their boats are difficult to handle, and high-tech designs and low production volumes mean high prices.

Further, the author understands why Beneteau Group and her new shipyard Excess Catamarans has the ability to provide yachtsmen with stock boats with good performance and performance at an affordable price.

First of all, the invited VPLP office, which usually deals with racing boats, analyzed the possibilities of reducing the weight of each element of the catamaran structure.

As a result, carbon reinforcement was applied to bulkheads made of sandwich panels filled with PET foam, which are subject to high loads. Low-density balsa filler has been used in those parts of the structure where loads are less high, such as the hull plating. The hull sections are reinforced with resin, water will not be able to penetrate there in case of local damage.

At the same time, the structure is monolithic in the area where the engines and keels are located, and the deck is a sandwich made of foamed polyethylene terephthalate.

Design proposals for furnishing were also based on careful weight analysis. Thanks to this, it was possible, for example, to reduce the weight of the galley by a quarter without the use of expensive foam fillers.

As a result of this optimization, the displacement of the Excess 14 is 12.8 tons, while for other boats of the same size and purpose, this figure reaches 14-15 tons. This is just one of the factors that the developers have used to significantly improve the sailing performance of the sailboat.

Renowned naval architect Vincent Lauriot Prevost worked on optimizing the hydrodynamics of the keel. As a result of the introduction of thin keels, lowered to a great depth, we get an increase in draft by 10 cm, but also 15% increased overall efficiency of the catamaran.

At the sailors' forum dedicated to Excess boats, the developers found out that yachtsmen are ready to accept a yacht with an increased draft of up to 1.48 m versus 1.2 m. The latter indicator is the standard for shallow water anchorages in the Bahamas.

The increase in draft made it possible to halve the length of the chord, and thin keels reduced the resistance of the water mass to the movement of the cat and improved steering response. The helms also dropped by 20 cm.

The asymmetry of the Excess 14’s hulls is characterized by a large external volume and curvature. This innovation reduces the impact force and wave resistance between the two hulls.

Zuzana Prochazka

The yachtsman and freelance journalist detailed her experience with the Excess 14 catamaran, which she tested in Biscayne Bay off Miami in late March 2023.

The reviewer recalled how in 2018 the Excess line of sailing catamarans was first presented at the Cannes Yachting Festival in France, and what bewilderment this caused among fans of Beneteau Shipyard’s catamarans. It seemed a strange decision, since the Excess cats were different from the Lagoons, but not enough to justify the creation of an entirely new line.

But after the release of the 11th model, these perplexities dissipated. And, in the words of Zuzana, chic Excess 14 confirmed that the brand has finally established its identity, as the latest yacht at the moment is the embodiment of the unique Excess' DNA.

The reviewer specifically noted that the twin helms located in the stern of each hull have direct, rather than hydraulic, control of the rudders. As an experienced yachtsman, Zuzana immediately appreciated the feeling of fast and responsive steering through these helms, which evokes the analogy of steering a monohull yacht. The shipyard’s goal here was to satisfy its customers, 85% of whom switched to their first cat from single-hull sailboats.

Excess 14 review: competitively priced performance catamaran

  • Rupert Holmes
  • February 21, 2023

Can spacious performance cruising multihulls be built in large volumes at competitive prices? Excess thinks so and demonstrates just that with the Excess 14

Product Overview

Price as reviewed:.

We’re sailing the Excess 14 upwind in 12-14 knots of true wind, with boat speed hovering between 7.4 and 8.0 knots. The helm feels positive and responsive, the boat tacks easily and responds readily to accurate sail trim.

Aside from the lack of heel, it’s the type of experience and real-world cruising speeds you might expect of a 50-something-foot monohull performance cruiser. Yet, this is an enormously spacious 26ft wide platform from the world’s largest boatbuilder, not a niche builder of expensive high performance designs.

Until now, anyone looking for a catamaran sailing experience that’s fun and rewarding to sail had a limited choice. Granted, yards such as Outremer and Marsaudon Composites produce fantastic boats, but they can be complex, while high tech construction and low build volumes inevitably mean hefty prices.

Groupe Beneteau identified a gap in the market into which it launched the Excess brand four years ago. How did the yard achieve good sailing qualities and performance in a high volume production boat with a commensurate price tag?

A policy to chase weight savings in every area, without creating an expensive high-tech boat, started with a Finite Element Analysis (FEA) of the entire structure by VPLP’s Vannes office, which normally deals with race boats.

Asymmetric hull shape with more curvature outboard reduces drag and slamming. Photo: Andreas Lindlahr/EYOTY

Carbon reinforcement was added to highly stressed areas, such as the fully infused PET foam sandwich bulkheads, while weight was dropped from lightly stressed zones including hull skins, through using a lower density end grain balsa core. This is divided into small squares, separated by resin, so localised damage won’t allow water ingress to spread. Layup is monolithic in way of the engines and keels, while the deck is PET foam sandwich.

The weight of furniture also came under scrutiny – the galley, for instance, is 25% lighter without resorting to expensive foam cores. Light displacement is 12.8 tonnes, compared to 14-15 tonnes for other cruising catamarans this size, and is one of several factors that make a significant improvement to the way the boat sails.

Feedback loop

VPLP also optimised keel hydrodynamics. Renowned naval architect Vincent Lauriot Prévost was convinced these could be more efficient than cruising multihulls’ typical fat, low aspect keels – and his initial modelling showed a modest 10cm increase in draught would give 15% better efficiency.

At the same time, discussions on the Excess Lab, an online forum engaging directly with sailors, showed the market will accept a catamaran with deeper draught than the industry-standard 1.2m (4ft) chosen to allow access to shallow Bahamian anchorages. So draught was increased to 1.48m, allowing chord length to be reduced by half, meaning thinner keels, even less drag and further improvements in steering response. The rudders are also 20cm deeper, so their shape is less compromised than most cruising catamarans.

Other innovations include asymmetric hulls with more curvature and volume on the outside and less on the inside, reducing drag from the interaction of the wakes between the two hulls and slamming.

Our test boat had the optional 1.76m (5ft 9in) taller Pulse Line mast and longer bowsprit, which increases upwind sail area by 12m2 and adds 14m2 to the Code 0. The boat performed well on my first sail in 8-12 knots of breeze, reaching at speeds of up to 7.3 knots under Code 0, and maintaining six knots with a true wind angle of 58°.

However, it falls off quickly if you try to point too high in appreciably less than 10 knots true wind. Turning downwind and setting an asymmetric spinnaker we maintained 7-7.5 knots at a true wind angle of 145°, increasing to 8.5 knots after heading up 30°.

Light airs performance

My second sail gave an interesting chance to try the boat in light airs. Compared to a new 47ft monohull performance cruiser, sailing gently upwind in only 6-7 knots of true breeze, we were around 5° lower, but almost matched speed. Even in such gentle conditions the helm has good feel and the boat is responsive to sail trim.

The bridgedeck accommodation is bright, with a wonderful almost all-round view. Photo: Julien Gazeau

The twin aft helm stations offer numerous advantages, including a direct connection from the wheels to the rudders using Dyneema cables. There’s an excellent view of the headsail luff, but there’s a large sector where you have to peer through the saloon windows. Nevertheless, for monohull sailors this feels like a natural place from which to steer and has the additional benefit of keeping the driver in contact with others in the cockpit.

The arrangement also makes short-handed berthing easier than cats with a central helm or a flybridge. As standard, mechanical cable engine controls are fitted at the starboard helm only, but our test boat had an electronic option with controls both sides.

Standard specification includes a square top mainsail and powerful overlapping genoa. Both are ideal for cruising cats, as the centre of effort is lowered and there’s no backstay to get in the way of the head of the mainsail.

Most sail controls are led to a bank of clutches and a pair of winches at the starboard helm station. Headsail sheets are colour coded, so tacking is an easy one-person operation. Our test boat had an electric winch upgrade, including a Harken Flatwinder powered mainsheet traveller.

My final day on board was in breezier conditions touching 17-18 knots, with a steep onshore chop that led to some wave tops gently slapping underneath the bridgedeck. This short, steep sea meant speed was quickly lost if you pointed too high when sailing close hauled. However, bearing off to a true wind angle just over 50° (around 33-34° apparent) saw brisk acceleration to speeds occasionally topping 8.5 knots.

Bearing away and deploying the Code 0 saw boat speed climb up to a maximum 10.3 knots. The delivery crew taking the boat from the Atlantic coast of France to the Cannes Yachting Festival report a top speed of 16.5 knots. However, this is not intended as a high performance vessel capable of sustained speeds in the upper teens, which makes it a less intimidating, easier boat to sail.

The central section of the aft cockpit is clear of sail handling action, with the exception of the traveller on the beam aft of the long bench seat across the back of the cockpit. An extending table to port allows easy circulation of people, yet can accommodate plenty for dining. There’s also an outdoor fridge and small bench seat on the starboard side of the cockpit. Access to the water or tender is from the aft platforms of each hull.

Wide side decks make going forward easy. Photo: Andreas Lindlahr/EYOTY

Side decks are wide, with good handrails, but weight saving means there’s no well for a forward cockpit. Instead sunbeds and cushions at the front of the bridgedeck create an area for relaxing and socialising, while beanbags can be used on the big trampoline.

There’s also an option of a ‘sky lounge’ on one side of the hardtop for use when not under way. This is reached via a couple of steps each side of the mast. The boom sweeps low across the top of the coachroof and hardtop, making it easy to pack the mainsail away and close the lazy bag after sailing.

Stowage on deck is under the cockpit seating, plus large lockers at the front of the bridgedeck, one of which also houses the optional generator. This area has space for the windlass and chain locker, while there are big sail lockers forward in both hulls, with enough space for optional skipper’s cabins.

Under sail the boat has a sufficiently comfortable, relaxed and solid feel to make leaving the helm to wander into the saloon or galley a viable proposition, especially if an apparent wind speed alarm is set. There are no full height cabinets, so only the mullions obstruct vision, while the blind spot from the helm stations created by coachroof, genoa and Code sails are no longer a problem.

The saloon is large, with ample room for circulation, plus a navstation and big table with space to comfortably seat eight people for dining. There’s good natural ventilation, including two big hatches in the front windows, plus one outboard of the cooker, as well as wide doors aft. The lack of full-height lockers means acres of galley worktop space. There’s also generous refrigeration and easily accessed stowage, plus considerable additional volume below the floor.

Chines above the waterline boost accommodation volume in the hulls, giving more space than high octane performance cruising designs. The charter version has a full four cabin, four head, four shower layout with good space, privacy and stowage.

Owners’ versions offer an unusual, but effective, take on how to use the space at the front of the starboard hull. There’s a flexible forepeak, instead of the standard 4m-long bathroom, with excellent stowage, including space for a walk-in dressing room (or even workshop). Yet this area can be converted to two single berths when necessary, perhaps with grandchildren on board. Aft of this is a midships washroom with twin sinks alongside enclosed toilet and shower compartments.

Between this area and the large peninsula berth aft is a generous dressing table/desk area, with ample space for those who work from home. There’s substantial further stowage in multiple hanging lockers, shelves and drawers.

It’s often said the benefits of owning a multihull come at the cost of compromising factors that bring joy to boat ownership. Excess has done a good job with this design which is a step forward compared to its first two models, the 12 and 15, which were hampered by being based on Lagoon hulls. Of course, there are more spacious and better finished boats of this size, as well as some with considerably better performance. Closest rivals are perhaps the Nautitech 44 Open and Neel 47 trimaran. Both are two tonnes lighter, faster and arguably nicer to sail, but they have appreciably less accommodation and the former is more expensive. The Excess Lab is also an example of the brand’s determination to try different things and pursue a different line, including how key interactions with the boating public are handled. It’ll be interesting to see what’s next.

RS Sailing, the world’s largest small-sailboat manufacturer

CATAMARAN SAILING

Sailing gives the ultimate sense of freedom, blasting across the water with no agenda or a care in the world. This couldn’t be more fitting when sailing the RS CATs. Durability, convenience and fun are the hallmarks of the RS CATs. Simple to rig, simple to sail and yet packed full of modern features that make ownership and boat handling an absolute breeze. The RS CATs have stability and space so you can enjoy the excitement alone or with family and friends. A new design protected system for joining the beams to the hulls gives increased stiffness compared to other rotomoulded polyethylene catamarans, with the added bonus of allowing the boat to be disassembled quickly for storage or transport. From fantastic family fun to SailGP Inspire Racing, the RS CATs really do offer all the versatility and the awesome performance you would want.

Even under main and jib alone, the RS Cat 16 sizzled along, its wave-piercing bows doing their thing while a pair of laser-beam-straight wakes stretched out astern. A few minutes later, we hoisted the A-sail, and life became very satisfying indeed.

A New Kind Of Sailing Experience.

The Topaz 14 is an accessible but high performance cat designed for two medium to light crew. There is room on the trampoline for three for cruising. 

The Topaz 14 delivers tremendous performance and is light, responsive, nimble and beautifully behaved. The Topaz Catamarans have been designed by International multihull racing legends Yves Loday and Robert White. With such sailing experience and pedigree, not to mention their proven design track records, it comes as little surprise that the Loday/White team have produced such a stunning range of cats.

catamaran new cat 14

A great first racing catamaran

A wonderful 14 foot catamaran that is fast, fun and forgiving and is ideally suited to lighter weight crews.  The Topaz 14 has a twin trapeze and a powerful 9.98m2 sail area courtesy of a large Dacron main and jib.

catamaran new cat 14

Tremendous stability & speed.

The 14 X option generates even higher performance with an added 10.00m2 gennaker to provide a more powered up downwind ride – while still retaining the excellent stability. The result; far more control and fewer spills than you’d expect from a cat with this much power.

2002 HOBIE WAVE 14 FOOT SAIL BOAT READY TO SAIL

2002 HOBIE WAVE 14 FOOT SAIL BOAT READY TO SAIL

Beacon Falls, Connecticut

Category Catamaran Sailboats

I bought this with hopes of learning how to sail. I realize now that I am not going to learn to sail this year due to my busy schedule already. The boat is located in Middletown CT and I maybe able to drop it off at your location. The boat is a 2002 Hobie Wave 14 foot. It took me a while to find this boat. I see many older (80's and 90's) that sell for $1500 to $2000. I have not found another 2000 or newer model for sale anywhere. The sail was new last year and the rest of the boat is in very good shape and is 100% ready to sail. Low ball offers will be automatically be declined. To replace this with a new one is well over $6000.00 so I think I priced it fairly. https://youtu.be/eLqiHS7aSG8
