Axcell 65' Power CatamaranHybrid Air-Lift System Gives Rise to Efficiency by Capt. Chuck Gnaegy and YF Publisher Carl Camper Remember that wild, young 16 year-old neighborhood kid who was forever winning boat races with cast-off hulls and engines he rescued from junk piles? You envied his daring and disorderly creativity and wondered whatever happened to that tinkering kid? Well, that kid is all grown-up now, owns a very successful business and has returned with yet another one-off design that will captivate imaginations, striking fear into the hearts of complacent boat builders who thought they were on the cutting edge. While the basic cat design may harken back to the ancient Hawaiian-Polynesian Islanders; or further, to Julius Caesar’s double-hulled war machines propelled by 300 sweating oarsmen; the Axcell 65’ Catamaran registers as a wildly up-to-date successor, and then some! This curvy feline boasts a patented “Hybrid Air-Lift Technology”™, which is poised to pounce on traditional hull forms. She’s a one-of-kind, precedent-breaking advance in marine science and she's purring sweetly into a new realm of efficiency.
