A growing brand
The Aventura brand has been producing sailing catamarans in its Tunisian shipyard since the early 2000s. In 2016, with the acquisition of a modern factory near Bizerte, it decided to tackle the design of motor catamarans by calling on the architect Samer Lasta, who will also take advantage of the opportunity to redesign all the brand's sailing models and a brand new 14-metre motor catamaran.
A small motor catamaran very habitable
Since the Highland 35 (Fountaine-Pajot), there has been no other attempt at an economical habitable catamaran. With all the manufacturers seeming to have agreed on a minimum size of 40 feet, Aventura has thrown itself into the fray by presenting its first motor catamaran, less than 10 metres in length, in 2017. Entirely designed for motor propulsion, it offers a habitability as close as possible to the 12-metre models that are popular for their four real double cabins. Available with outboard and inboard engines, the first models were recommended for coastal cruising and were an immediate success. As a bonus to its record living space, the aft cockpit, not closed, could optionally receive a pivoting transom that could be transformed at anchor into a spacious aft deck without changing the overall length of 9.98 m on the bill of lading.
The CS version transforms it into a real ocean-going cruiser
In 2019, and in response to a customer request, a more opulent aft cockpit option was proposed under the name CS for "cockpit salon". Combined with an engine twice as powerful, it increases the range and positions this cruiser for real ocean cruising.
A modern and elegant design that blurs its large volumes
In order to accommodate four cabins, a beautiful saloon, an aft cockpit and one forward, plus a spacious flybridge in this reduced size, the architect's pencil stroke has turned to angular shapes nibbling on cm², but suggesting a touch of stealth, while preserving a certain curvature, not unrelated to the sailing range, to keep its asset of seduction. The plucked and slightly inverted bows with rounded bridles and the hulls with a step back hull augur well for efficiency on the water. Its shapes also make it possible to cleverly lighten the silhouette by playing with different shades of paint on the hull sides.
The glass/foam sandwich construction uses epoxy resins and the woods are water-repellent. The particularity of the building site, which does not produce large series, is to be attentive to the demands of the future owner
