The STGI shipyard, which produces the Aventura catamaran range, has evolved considerably over the last few models. From sailboats with finishes that can be improved, we now have boats that no longer have anything to envy from the competition of large shipyards such as Lagoon or Fountaine-Pajot.
Without a doubt, the architect and designer Samer Lasta's touch plays an important role in this revival. The industrialization of production also brings an additional finishing touch. But all this move upmarket is not at the expense of price. The proof is that the new Aventura 37, which is announced for the end of 2020, will be offered in its basic version at the gung-ho price of 225,500 euros excluding VAT (standard version, 3 cabins + 2 bathrooms). By way of comparison, a Fountaine Pajot Lucia 40 is offered at around 275,000 euros HT and a Lagoon 40 at 340,000 euros. Two catamarans certainly a little larger, but also much more expensive..
Readers will already have discovered a first presentation of this sailboat. The new 3D views show a little more about this cruising catamaran, which tackles both the owner's market and the charter market. Indeed, the layout proposes a version with 4 cabins and 4 bathrooms.
On this boat, note the new design of the steering station, which frees the helmsman from the manoeuvring area and the winches. This manoeuvring station in front of the helm station also allows access directly from the cockpit. This is a good thing to ensure safety, when at sea you need to access the helm without having to go through the aft catwalks.
Still in terms of safety, the cockpit is deliberately very closed so that a family crew is not exposed to danger.
For the relaxation areas, there are 3 sunbathing areas: one at the front of the deckhouse, a second one aft of the starboard hull and a last one on the deckhouse. This arrangement creates an asymmetry in the layout, with a forward circulation which will naturally occur on the port side (on the side of the helm station).
