We make farther destinations available to our guests. We enjoy the sail as much as the destination.

For this, we have built the most advanced cruiser-racer sailing catamaran and we make it available.

For passionate cruisers, demanding racers or for team building and special events. Or just for the fun of it!

One of the best high-performance catamarans ever built is available for charter with crew for cruising or racing.

Avel Vaez is hull #3 of the ORC 57 racer-cruiser sailing catamaran designed by Marc Lombard Yacht Design and built by Marsaudon Composites shipyard in Lorient, Britany, France. This model is the third and largest from the ORC (Ocean Rider Catamaran) series. Extremely light weight with generous sail plan makes the ratio sail area/weight amongst the very best on this market.

With 57ft (18m) in length and 30ft (9m) in breadth, Avel Vaez offers a very spacious platform. The cabins are large, and showers are separate from heads. The salon is very cozy and can seat eight. The cockpit has a large table to seat ten guests. Imagine yourself at anchorage having drinks with friends after a fun day of sail seating in this cozy cockpit. Electric power is provided by solar panels. The potable water is made on board. The boat size also allowed to install a larger dinghy which will be really handy to disembark or explore areas further away from the anchorage. It can as well take a group of divers to the close reefs.

The hull is made of infused foam glass vinilester composite and the main bulkheads are made of carbon fiber for light weight and strength. There are two retractable daggerboards which allows great performances at all wind angles and yet access relatively shallow and protected anchorage for a great and relaxing night.

The rigging and sail plan retain the spirit of the rest of the vessel, it is simple and very efficient. The fixed carbon mast also has composite rigging. The performances are exceptional, and the boat speed often exceed the wind speed. To help the crew, the three main winches are electric powered. You can also grind if favor the exercise, but the ease and comfort of the electric winch make sail handling really safer, quicker and with less efforts.

Unlike standard chartered catamaran, Avel Vaez simply offers more fun! You can decide to explore destination that are further away. For the same number of days on board, you will discover places that no other sailboat can reach in the same timeframe and without the boring slow speed long tacks or even motor sail. If shorter distances are preferred, you will be the first to arrive at the next anchorage and get the best spots and spend more time enjoying other activities like exploring the island, snorkeling around the nearby reefs, diving to the deeper side of the reefs. You can also decide to depart later and enjoy a tour on the stand-up paddle as the day begins and the sun rises.
