Design Samana 59
The main emphasis in the design of the Samana 59 is on ease of maintenance. This will definitely please any yacht owner!
Fiberglass hulls and bulkheads reinforced with carbon fiber. The interior is made of wood laminate, while the countertops are made of synthetic resin.
Literally a few countertops and doors can boast of being made from a full-fledged piece of wood.
The catamaran is equipped with large air conditioners, fresh water tanks are larger than average, and the distributed electrical system copes with the tasks more than successfully.
All this is monitored by a large touch screen controller near the chart table. It also displays maps. If you want to lay out paper maps, there is also plenty of free space for this.
The catamaran is equipped with two powerful 110 hp engines. manufactured by Volvo. They do an excellent job without making too much noise.
There is a version with two 150 hp engines. from the same Volvo.
The yacht is rigged with two pairs of spreaders. On Samana 59, the mainsail looks more like a trapezoid than a classic triangle. In addition, there are two stays on this kat. One carries the genoa, and the second one can be equipped with a staysail.
Hydraulic furling on the stay makes it easier to work with the headsail. Electric winches on the flybridge are used to control the halyards and sheets.
The advantage of the Samana 59 will be a really huge space on the deck for relaxation. There's enough space for everyone!
Accommodation on board
The Maestro version includes a master cabin in the starboard float. It is slightly larger than the other four cabins. Each cabin has its own bathroom, and two aft cabins have separate entrances from the aft decks. Comfortable and practical layout!
There are other layout options, including the version with a galley in the left hull. So you get an even more spacious interior. There is an option with crew cabins in both buildings. This will create additional beds.
The spacious galley has large sinks, a four burner stovetop and four separate fridge/freezers. There is plenty of space for cooking, and for guests and family there is a huge table in the cockpit and another smaller one in the saloon.
The sails on board the Samana 59 are large, but powerful furls and winches help to cope with them.
From the experience of yachtsmen, it is worth noting that if you want to go at maximum speed and, as they say, feel the yacht for real, then it is recommended to use genoa.
If you are going on a calm and measured cruise, then a staysail is suitable for this. In fact, this division is very conditional. Everyone should choose the perfect combination for themselves.
Do not forget about another feature. Samana 59 cannot be called sharp in terms of handling a catamaran. He, when compared with people, is calm and measured. This is due to the dimensions and hydraulic steering of the Samana 59.
under the engine
At 2,400 rpm on the tachometer, the boat will reach a speed of 9.5 knots. At the same time, it is quite quiet inside the cabin. At high speeds of 2,900 rpm, the speed was 10.5 knots.
Stops, turns and reversing are easily controlled. The boat has two engines and a thruster. Together they provide excellent maneuverability. For such a wide boat, this is a big plus.
