Our home ¨SOULMATE¨

WHY SOULMATE?

We decided to name the boat Soulmate because it’s a word that defines us. I’ve always believed that here on earth we have someone who is similar to us, someone who is compatible with our being, a soulmate. Those who know us will understand the meaning behind this. Stefan and I are meant to be together… two souls that became like one when they met, and complement each other every day of their lives.

We also named it like this because we’re friendly and we’ve always empathized with people. We love to get to know the heart of every human being and let them know ours without expecting anything in return.
Soulmate, our catamaran, is a boat with two identical hulls that united create a fortressed ship. It’s like having two sailboats together sailing side by side through the infinite sea.



WHY CATAMARAN NOT MONOHULL?


Minimum heeling. This is great. Your wife may actually love you again. Sailing fast and upright. Flying by monohulls on a reach. Set your coffee on the table, put the autopilot on auto tack and tack the boat by yourself. The coffee’s still there when you get back to it!

Speed.Checking our captain’s logbooks, we find that on a passage where winds are of mixed directions, catamarans average about 20% greater speeds compared to monohulls of the same size.

Volume On deck. Volume on deck. Lots of cockpit and deck space. The right boat for a party. Lay on the nets. Sit on the swim platform. Lounge in the cockpit or inside (not below – everything is at the same level) with wrap-around windows. Lots of space and connection with the environment.

Privacy. Apart from lots of room to spread out on deck, the sleeping accommodations are totally separate. Located in each hull, in opposite corners. True privacy. Separate head access. Lots of storage. Ventilation planned for the tropics. Comfortable.

Handling. The rig is smaller because of the lower displacement. It’s easier to get around. Put the auto-pilot on,  tack, and you can casually let off one sheet and take in the other with no help, and the crew/guests continue reading or eating or whatever without even realizing that you tacked.

Safety. You’re unsinkable, and have 2 motors versus 1 motor as on a Monohull.

WAKEBOARD

Quantity 2


Wakeboarding is a surface water sport which involves riding a wakeboard over the surface of a body of water. It was developed from a combination of water skiing, snowboarding, and surfing techniques.

The rider is usually towed behind a motorboat, typically at speeds of 30–40 km/h (18-25 mph),

STAND UP PADDLE

Quantity: 1


Unlike traditional surfing where the rider is sitting until a wave comes, stand up paddle boarders maintain an upright stance on their boards and use a paddle to propel themselves through the water.

It is one of the most all round sports physically, suitable for all ages, which you can enjoy from the first moment.

WINDSURF

Quantity: 1


Windsurfing is a surface water sport that combines elements of surfing and sailing. It consists of a board usually 2.5 to 3 meters long, with displacements typically between 60 to 250 litres, powered by wind on a sail. The rig is connected to the board by a free-rotating universal joint and consists of a mast, 2-sided boom and sail.

KITE SURF

Quantity: 1


Kiteboarding is a surface water sport combining aspects of wakeboarding, snowboarding, windsurfing, surfing, paragliding, skateboarding and gymnastics into one extreme sport. A kiteboarder harnesses the power of the wind with a large controllable power kite to be propelled across the water on a kiteboard similar to a wakeboard or a small surfboard, with or without footstraps or bindings.
