Australia-based Fusion Catamarans has opened a production facility in Sarasota, Florida, where it is currently building the Fusion 40 USA to individual customer order. This Gary Lidgard design shows a profile of gentle curves capped by a rigid cockpit roof that flows in all dimensions from the saloon. More curves direct the transom steps to permit boarding from inboard of the hulls rather than over the sterns. A relatively short forward bridgedeck connected to the bow crossbar by a catwalk supports the designer’s claim that this cat is built to deliver performance. The self-tacking jib suggests you won’t have to work hard to obtain it.

The interior plans show a master suite to port and in the starboard hull a queen suite forward and a study aft. The saloon has a 360-degree view and opening windows to create cross ventilation. The builder can make modifications “to reflect the needs and tastes” of each client.
