Wednesday, April 09, 2008

Hemisphere (formerly Project Gemini), designed by naval architects Van Peteghem Lauriot Prévost (VPLP) and built by Derecktor Shipyards in Bridgeport, CT, is on course for delivery later in 2008. With a length overall of 145 ft. and a gross tonnage of just under 500,  is set to scoop the record as the world's largest sailing catamaran.  The result is a  design  with practical features blending speed and stability with both space and style. It features a draft of only 9.8ft aimed to add ease of maneuverability and access to ports and lagoons inaccessible to monohulls of comparable size.
