What started as a short infomercial about the ultra-high performance Marstrom 32 Cat turned into a truly enjoyable interview with legendary carbonologist Goran Marstrom and his lead designer Kare Ljung about this new era of carbon multihulls. Learn more about this XL turbo beach cat that’s somehow sold five boats already in a dismal market, but you also might learn how much a boatbuilding autoclave costs, what the magic upwind angle is where a boat has a faster VMG than wind speed, and whether stiffness is always the answer to higher performance. And even if all that bores you, stick around for the last few minutes when Goran explains why reverse bows are silly and tells the real story on what wins A-Cat championships. Fascinating stuff from one of the real leaders in the world of high performance sailing, Marstrom Composites.
