The Quad 44’s design resembles that of an outrigger canoe.

Quad Marine has announced the Quad 44, a catamaran powered by electric motors and equipped with solar charging.

The Quad 44 is designed with the entire living space mounted atop the catamaran’s sponsons, similar to an outrigger canoe. This creates more living space and better visibility from the enclosed forward helm station. Quad Marine says the new boat has 40 percent more interior accommodations than the Lagoon 450 catamaran. The Quad 44 also has concealed dinghy storage.

The target market for the new boat is recreational day or extended-cruising sailors, liveaboard boaters and charter operators.

Quad Marine recently launched an online public offering to raise capital for the production of the Quad 44.
