Maine yard builds first Brevilla

ADVERTISEMENT

Front Street Shipyard in Belfast, Maine, has begun construction on the first boat in a new series of center console power catamarans for Brevilla Boat Company. Hull No. 1 is a 48-foot composite catamaran with a 13-foot-10-inch beam and 20-inch draft. The full Brevilla boat line will be available for new construction in the coming months.
The Brevilla hull form provides lift, speed, shock mitigation and exceptional handling. The Brevilla 48 will run at speeds in excess of 55 mph with twin 350-hp outboards, operating with a 30-40 percent increase in fuel efficiency over a comparably sized monohull. The tunnel-mounted outboards are above the boat’s maximum draft, providing propeller protection when running in shoal water or when beaching.
Front Street Shipyard will launch the first test platform of the Brevilla 48 in early October.
