52' Shuttleworth Aerorig


This custom catamaran was designed by John Shuttleworth, a leading high performance catamaran designer from England. He was contracted to design a fast, smooth, safe cat that would support the newest idea of self sailing rigging, the AeroRig®. The result is the Shuttleworth 52.
She is constructed of Airex foam core, carbon fibers, Kevlar, E-glass, and Pro-set epoxy resin. Her length overall is 52'2" with a beam overall of 33'6". She has a draft of 2'10" with kickup rudders. One dagger board in the port hull raised and lowered from the cockpit. She is powered by twin 59 horsepower Volvo diesel engines with Sail Drives equiped with 3 blade full feathering and adjustabe pitch Stainless Steel props. Lots of room and easy access in the engine room, KE-4 electric engine controls and Jastram hydraulic steering. Her displacement is 16,500 and has a useful load of 10,000 lbs. Flush deck hatches, bow netting, and Ocean non-skid deck. The radar arch will handle radar and other things needed as the radar can not work very well on a rotating mast.

This Shuttleworth 52 AeroRig® is a free-standing, carbon fiber mast. This mast will assist the sailor in a virtual self sailing environment. It has been designed so a majority of the handling can be done by one person from the cockpit with an electric winch. Additional structural reinforcements were designed into the main beam and adjoining cabin top, as well as where the mast pivots in a recessed area on the bridgedeck. Roller furling main and head sails are manual, but could be operated from the helm as well..

She has a drop down boarding bow ladder, very beach-able, and dual electric windlasses.

She has four staterooms and four heads in the starboard and port hulls. Hanging lockers and other storage have been designed as intrinsic features.

The main salon design contains the galley and a formal seating area with table for 6-8 people. Bar stools can be added around the bar/galley and an outside portable table on the aft deck.
