Key Features

Spacious Living: Featuring the largest salon in its class, this 4-cabin version offers
unparalleled space and comfort. The salon’s expansive layout ensures a relaxing and
inviting atmosphere for you and your guests.

Customized Comfort: The boat includes a splendid washer/dryer unit vented in a
converted shower space, offering 3.5 bathrooms aboard. This can easily be converted back
to a shower if needed, providing flexibility based on your preferences.

Performance: Capable of impressive speeds, “Sea Bird” has proven its mettle by sailing
from Ft Lauderdale to Boston and back. Averaging 10 knots for 5 days from South Africa,
this catamaran reliably maintains a real-world cruising speed of 6-6.5 knots, with the
potential to achieve 8 knots under favorable conditions.

Innovative Design: The Vision 450 incorporates modern build features found in
performance catamarans. The fiberglass hulls are vacuum-bagged sandwich construction
using vinyl ester resin, E-Glass, and high-density rigid PVC foam coring. The bridge deck
uses Nida-Core for high strength-to-weight ratio and excellent sound dampening.

Robust Construction: The keels are solid glass, sacrificial, and attached separately to
ensure structural integrity. The long, sloping coach roof and accentuating windows create a
striking profile, complemented by a large forward deck with ample storage.

Outdoor Living: The cockpit features a hard dodger, large dining table, and wraparound
settee. The raised steering station is equipped with all necessary instruments and controls,
ensuring ease of navigation and handling.

Self-Sufficiency: Designed for autonomy, the solar charging and battery systems include
upgraded solar panels on a custom arch. This setup provides independence from the diesel
generator, enhancing your cruising experience.
