Optimus 45

Optimus Yachtbuilders is proud to announce
the OPTIMUS range of performance sailing catamarans.

For our first yacht, an OPTIMUS 45, we’re combining a very light and performance-oriented composite construction (foam, carbon, e-glass, epoxy) with electric propulsion and solar systems.
All our yachts will be ZERO-Emission and built to comply with CE-certification A.

... just sun and wind (even a tiny amount) will be enough to take you anywhere !

100% ZERO-Emission

Electric propulsion and regeneration systems by Oceanvolt.
Solar systems by Sunbeam.
Sizing of lithium battery-banks and solar capacity is optimized in collaboration with the Flemish Innovation partner VITO.

Our yachts have ample self-sufficiency for traveling and making fast-crossings in any part of the world.

100% advanced sailing technology

Performance

Retractable daggerboards, full composite construction, careful attention to the weight of every single item on board and to weight distribution, powerful rig, composite sail-wardrobe,…
The OPTIMUS-range aspires to provide the best performance
in every aspect of the yacht experience.
Shorter passage-times and the capability
to avoid or run from bad weather are guaranteed.

Destinations that were unreachable in the past, are now within reach !

 

 

Comfort & Safety

All the comfort you need on a sailing yacht :
exquisite galley, cozy living room, 2 fully equipped bathrooms with separate showers and 8 bunks.
Plus exterior furnishings ready-to-chill are also included.

Our catamarans are intrinsically unsinkable
– foam in our composite construction, dozens of sealed compartments, double watertight bulkheads in the bow and crash-boxes aft,
compliance with CE cat A –
our yachts are among the safest around !

Ship are the nearest things to dreams that hands have ever made

About us

About
