Raku 40 Performance Cruiser Catamaran
Grainger Designs – originally designers of flat-out racers – have succeeded in giving the Raku 40 the comfort of a cruiser. The light, strong construction ensures little wet surface and the catamaran concept ensures a high sail-carrying capacity. The reversed bow (to prevent “diving”) and the clean lines give the catamaran a beautiful, almost futuristic, appearance.
WAARSCHIP IS THE EUROPEAN BUILDER OF THE RAKU 40 CATAMARAN
The standard layout includes a central bathroom in the hull and a second bathroom forward in the port side. A four-cabin setup is available with central bathrooms in both hulls.
There are two cockpit layouts: one with the helm station aft and one with the helm positioned against the cabin. In both cases it is a double helm.
Inboard diesels are preferable for open ocean sailing and bar[EH1] crossing security, but outboard motors can be fitted if the boat is sailing primarily in protected waters. An Oceanvolt electrical system can also be installed.
Daggerboards and fixed keels
The standard design comes with daggerboards, but the cat can also be equipped with fixed keels.
The Raku 40 is available (as a hull) from € 189,000.
