EXCESS CATAMARANS: ideally designed for sailing … and the tropics

Be the first to step on board an all new Excess Catamaran! Join us at the Boot boat show in Düsseldorf …

At Sail Tahiti we’ve been looking out for the ideal catamaran for your South Pacific cruise. We know what we like as we’ve sailed a bit ourselves: a family blue-water cruise from France to Tahiti, followed by 2 years living on bord in Polynesia and the sale of many dozens of multihulls. We talk with our customers and listen to their experiences. What we see is that certain values are key:

  • In the Pacific, best is a performance catamaran, because the distances are bigger than cruising in the Med or the Caribbean.
  • Sailing is what we’re about, so the visibility from the helm must be good and the feel while helming rewarding
  • You need space for long term cruising, but the boat needs to stay light, so the interior volumes should be good, but the accommodation minimalist.  You should be able to move around easily, including into the cockpit.
  • We love modern design, pure and without compromise

Open to the stars

Uncompromisingly modern

All these values are the essence of Excess, the new range of catamarans launched by the Beneteau Group with naval architects VPLP.  Designed for a new generation of sailors: sporty, passionate about adventure, water sports, travel and discovery.  People who value simplicity but remain connected to life and sharing experiences with their friends and family.

We love the sporty character, the clean modern design filled with innovation that brings a new spirit to catamaran sailing: a bimini that opens to the stars; twin helm stations that offer a perfect view of the sea; a Pulse Line rig with dyneema rigging and larger sail area for maximum sensation and an optimized on-board living space with attractive finishes.

Excess catamarans have been designed to adapt to new ways of looking at life on the water. We’re proud to be the exclusive dealership in Polynesia, because we share the same spirit!

Sail Tahiti will be at Boot Dusseldorf :

2 models have already been launched, the Excess 12 and 15. At Boot in Dusseldorf, you can be one of the first to see the new Excess 11.  With an accessible pricing, this is an ideal boat for your sabbatical cruise in Polynesia, perfectly designed for today’s sailor: young at heart, connected to life, sporty and with an appetite for adventure.

If your dream is to sail the South Pacific, now’s the time to meet with us, in Tahiti, or you can join us for the Boot boat show in Düsseldorf end of January and visit the Excess 11, 12 and 15.
