Shuttleworth 52' AeroRig
This custom catamaran was designed by John
Shuttleworth, a leading high performance catamaran designer from
England. He was contracted to design a fast, smooth, safe cat
that would support the newest idea of self sailing rigging, the
AeroRig®. The result is the Shuttleworth 52.
She is constructed of Airex foam core, carbon fibers,
Kevlar, E-glass, and Pro-set epoxy resin. Her length overall is 52'2" with a
beam overall of 33'6". She has a draft of 2'10" with kickup
rudders. One dagger board in the port hull raised and lowered from the
cockpit. She is powered by twin 59 horsepower Volvo diesel engines
with Sail Drives equiped with 3 blade full feathering and adjustabe
pitch Stainless Steel props. Lots of room and easy access in the engine room,
KE-4 electric engine controls and Jastram hydraulic steering. Her displacement is
16,500 and has a useful load of 10,000 lbs. Flush deck hatches, bow netting, and
Ocean non-skid deck. The radar arch will handle radar and other
things needed as the radar can not work very well on a rotating mast.
This Shuttleworth 52 AeroRig® is a free-standing, carbon fiber mast.
This mast will assist the sailor in a virtual self sailing
environment. It has been designed so a majority of the handling
can be done by one person from the cockpit with an electric winch. Additional structural
reinforcements were designed into the main beam and adjoining cabin
top, as well as where the mast pivots in a recessed area on the
bridgedeck. Roller furling main and head sails are manual, but could be operated
from the helm as well..
She has a drop down boarding bow ladder, very beach-able, and dual
She has four staterooms and
four heads in the starboard and port hulls. Hanging lockers and
other storage have been designed as intrinsic features.
The main salon design contains the galley and a formal seating area with table for 6-8 people.
Bar stools can be added around the bar/galley and an outside portable table
on the aft deck.
on image for larger layout.
The current design of the galley is U-shaped with a refrigerator (ac/dc quiet), propane stove oven, and microwave. The counter space is abundant, as
is the amount of storage in the galley and down in the Starboard hull,
kind of a pantry area. Three 100 gallon water capacity, built in tanks with two
10 gal. elec/heat ex. hot water
tanks, one in each engine room. There are two holding tanks with Electra Scan
waste treatment. The two full size showers are in the forward
staterooms. Washer/dryer combo in the port hull.
still lots of personal touches that can be made and items such as
generator, water maker, electronics.
two aft staterooms are large and have Queen
size beds and their own heads. The two staterooms forward are a bit
smaller with double beds. Overhead hatches and port lights allow
lot of air.
The cockpit features a large U-shaped seating area with easy access aft to the hulls and to the dingy deck and aft
with storage and a live bait compartment.
This cat was designed and built for high performance world cruising
and can be single handed.
AeroRig is a free standing mast, no stays
which rotates on its own bearing system designed by CarboSpar and
built by ForeSpar in California.
