Description: Looping catamarans are known for their seakeeping qualities and their excellent ergonomics. Patrick Luscher designed them to be simple, strong, light and fast while taking excellent care of a bluewater crew. Hulls are long and slender. Bridgedeck clearance is superb. Weight is intelligently centered. The living environment is practical, comfortable, and elegant. In fact, most Looping owners have graduated from production catamarans like Catanas to a custom Looping because of the excellent balance between performance and liveability. This catamaran will turn in very high daily averages and feel good doing it. She is brilliantly thought out, expertly constructed, and outfitted to sail the Pacific, the Caribbean, or around the world. She will be your turn-key home on the ocean. Even a solo sailor can handle her easily and experienced sailors will appreciate her toughness, lightness, and performance characteristics. If you are ready to go now, this is a catamaran you should not miss!

Equipment: There are four double berths per hull, sink/shower, head and closets amidships. The bridgedeck has a nice salon and spacious galley. The galley is a chef’s dream (and the envy of all cruisers who come aboard); pantry space, plenty of counter space and an oven and has a full four burner stovetop. There are two forward compartments accessible from the deck currently being employed as storage space. Speaking of storage, there are four forward lockers on the front deck for storage and a lot of compartments in the cockpit. The expansive cockpit can seat up to 20 guests.

Galley Equipment
The galley is to starboard on the bridgedeck. It is shaped for efficient and secure meal preparation underway. The shape also creates a very convivial galley that interfaces well with the salon and the cockpit while keeping foot traffic out of the galley.

Design and Construction
HULLS: The hulls are built strip planked red cedar. The hull layup is double diagonal with longitudinals inside and outside cold molded with epoxy resin and glass. The hull design is unique with no bilges. Instead she is built with foam under the floors to the hull (No bilge odors, squeaky floors or maintenance.)
BULKHEADS: There is a forward collision bulkhead on both hulls. The second full bulkhead aft is also sealed from the rest of the hull. The engine room bulkhead is sealed from the hulls. These bulkheads provide watertight integrity in the event of hull failure from a collision, etc. Plywood ring frames, secondary bulkheads, and cabinet work bonded to the hulls complete the structure.
CROSSBEAM: The main beam is red cedar wrapped with carbon fiber and with a carbon fiber strut bonded to deck and hull.
KEELS: Keels are formed of plywood saturated in epoxy, foam filled and fiberglass ( Kevlar) sheathed to the hull with no keel bolts.
STEERING: Foam cored fiberglass rudders on alloy shafts. Steering uses a single wheel with hydraulic system. The both autopilots are connected with two different electopumps. A manual tiller arm is also on board on the transom steps in an emergency.
