The Budding Euro Line Up
Working closely and following several meetings with Dan Menahem of Lisbon, a new type of Cheetah evolved.After selecting the long foredeck version of the 9.98m Cheetah, Dan required additional onboard accommodation and had very specific ideas for a new type cabin layout which would compliment the good climate on the west coast of Portugal. The 9.98m left the workshop in mid May and although a stage B build, is already mightily impressive.
Sean’s thoughts on the project:
“The typical Atlantic west coast swell needs a boat with good bow lift that can run in straight lines and not broach in a following seas. Equally a soft riding hull when you are going into the waves is essential. Dan’s layout with the angled side doors allows double access forward without losing space for openings and access eachside of the cabin”
With a healthy orderbook, current builds include ‘X-Cat’ a Charter and Surf Safari 11m Cheetah destined for the west coast of France. A further trailerable 7.2m has just been delivered to Noirmoutier. Story and pictures to follow soon on Phyn – a new type sunny clime 7.2m.
