Discover the new Excess 14

by Excess Catamarans 6 Feb 2022 15:21 UTC

The Excess 14 is the pure incarnation of the Excess DNA. It is the result of a dedicated design work and an industrial execution, unique to the brand. It is a cruising yacht that is both fun and playful, with sleek lines.

This catamaran is the outcome of innovative architecture, of unbiased research work seeking 'out of the box' solutions.

The Excess 14 is designed around a layout never seen before on the market, both in the owner's version and in the charter version. More sensations yet everything you'd expect from a cruising boat: this is the challenge taken up by the Excess 14!

The embodiment of Excess DNA: a fun and playful cruising sailboat with sleek lines

Instantly recognizable design: Take a low boom, reduced windage thanks to lower freeboard, taut lines and redesigned hull windows, and you get a catamaran with a distinctive look! Add an aft-set coachroof, a forward stepped mast, a composite bowsprit (as standard) as well as inverted and inclined bows for more fun! Finish off with an non-immersed forefoot and you have a dynamic catamaran that's ready for adventure.

For more sensations at the helm, you know our preference: Helm stations right at the stern in direct contact with the rudders and a good view of the sails, as inspired by monohulls.

What you may not know is that visibility is optimal on board the Excess 14, through untinted windows - this is an Excess exclusive on the market!

This model features an optimized fins design, and the rudder blades have been extended! A direct steering system has been chosen, with textile lines, for a better helm feel (because yes, it is important!)

Innovative architecture: unbiased research to find 'out of the box' solutions

Fundamental, unbiased research!

Thanks to our collaboration with VPLP design, the lines of the Excess 14 have benefited from an understanding of ocean racing. Enriched by their Expertise and cutting-edge software, this model is designed with an forward-set rig, a square-top mainsail, and a large overlapping genoa (as standard) to optimize the sail area to displacement ratio.

As it was impossible to leave it at that, bridgedeck clearance was increased for better passage through the water, and the hulls designed asymmetrically to reduce interference drag.

Continuing in this innovative approach, there is also:

  • a lower center of gravity
  • an optimized structure (foam sandwich, carbon reinforcements, etc.)
  • a new longitudinal volume distribution

At Excess, we don't do things by halves!

More sensations and everything you'd expect of a cruising boat: a real challenge!

The Excess 14 is a cruising catamaran that also offers comfort and modularity of its living spaces.

The goal was to maintain volume and good headroom, all this in a warm and as bright as ever interior design.

In the hulls, you'll find wide, very comfortable beds, and bathrooms featuring a separate shower. For setting off on your adventure, large and subdivided storage spaces have been created!

And because there's no compromise between sailing and living spaces, the retractable chart table is really ingenious!

Designed around a layout unseen on the market, both in the Owner's version and in the Charter version.

The Excess 14 is available in several layout versions. In the innovative 3-cabin version, the main characteristics are:

  • A central bathroom
  • A private dressing area
  • An option of extra bunks

In the 4-cabin version, you'll find:

  • A layout including four cabins, four heads and four separate showers
  • An optional skipper cabin in each hull
  • A skylounge option: lounging space on the coachroof with no compromise to the look or sensations.
