WindQuest – Long Island 85



Semi-custom sailing catamaran

WindQuest, the first catamaran in the Long Island range, was the result of a fruitful relationship between JFA Yachts and Marc Lombard. Its size and free-board, attest to the fact that this semi-custom, composite catamaran, was designed to sail far and in the greatest comfort. By combining aluminium and composite, the objective was to obtain a multihull with a weight limit adapted to its sailing programme. This catamaran offers an innovative interior layout for its size: it boasts an owner’s cabin situated in front of the nacelle with a panoramic view and direct access to the forward trampoline.

Marc Lombard

Naval architect

Long Island, the new range of large catamarans built by JFA represents the ultimate achievement of our design office with their 25 years of experience in producing cruising catamarans for customers who demand more and more space, light and functionality.

The challenge was to avoid compromising the performance while making sure the boat remained easy to handle.

The most appropriate use of building materials and simple yet reliable systems have enabled us to maintain an acceptable loaded displacement. Digital simulation analysis allowed us to optimise precisely the hull lines and the shape of the appendages.

The deck gear and the interior equipment have all been carefully selected on the basis of the best ratio quality/weight. The outcome is simple, efficient and seaworthy, benefiting from our depth of knowledge in the design of cruising multihulls that combine extreme comfort and high performance.
