Control and visualization system for SLIM 66, a sailing catatmaran, Cape Town, RSA
In cooperation with Capi2 Netherland BV we designed a touch screen control system for a 66 feet long sailing catamaran by GUNBOAT. The catamaran is called SLIM 66.
The catamaran is fully equipped with a Capi2 Navetica system mainly for control all electrical appliances, LED lights and pumps. The boat systems are controlled by a 10” Panel PC and an iPad as backup. The catamaran was built in South Africa.
Sailing catamarans are engineered to round-the-world racing standards. Racing catamarans are pushed far beyond the limits of any cruising boat, yet are a fraction of the weight. All unnecessary weight is engineered out of the structures, but superior safety margins to any cruising boat in production are retained.
