Speed; Innovation; Grace The SIG45 is that and more, she may be the world’s fastest production catamaran!
Le Breton Yachts assembled a phenomenally talented design team for the SIG45:
Van Peteghem Lauriot Prevost (VPLP) is probably the world’s number one multihull design firm, responsible for yachts ranging from ORMA60 trimarans to luxury custom catamarans. Their 105ft
trimaran, Groupama 3, is currently holder of two transatlantic records (east and westwards) and the 24hour speed record (795nm, an average speed of over 33knots!). Their latest creation is the incredible BMW Oracle trimaran winner of the 33rd America’s Cup Deed of Gift race.
Bjorn Johansson, The emphasis of his beautiful interior is on simple, lightweight luxury. Bjorn has brought a touch of superyacht style to the interior of the SIG45, which provides a remarkable sensation of space and quality.
Bruno Peyron, As the technical consultant for the project, he has applied his extensive multihull racing experience to optimizing the design, and is responsible for the rig and deck layout.
The result of this collaboration is Speed, Innovation, Grace! A Carbon Fiber catamaran with a Carbon Fiber rotating mast and the deck space of a megayacht, a simple elegant interior that sleeps 6 with top speeds in excess of 20 knots!
She Just upgraded her drive system to electric!!!
The SIG45’s new electrical drive system consists of twoOceanvolt 8.6kW electrical engines and two small 5.6kWh lithium battery packs to save weight. This gives 40nm of autonomy at 5-6 knots, and a top speed of 8.5 knots. If required, the props can be used to charge the batteries while sailing – 2x2kW at 14 knots! In due course, the boat will have a lightweight removable generator able to provide 20kW of DC current for supporting battery packs, and an array of solar panels.

Vessel Walk Through
The SIG45 is flat out unique in its layout and deck design. Designed by Bjorn Johansson, the living arrangement are in the port and starboard hulls with full deck open. This area works great for outside entertaining.
PORT HULL The port hull is considered the owner’s suite. Upon entering from protective companionway down two steps is the owner’s salon, there is a straight settee outboard with a storage cabinet just aft, just off center is a custom carbon fiber drop left table and a fold up settee inboard. On the aft bulkhead is a flat screen TV. A very unique feature of the salon is the large opening clear hatch on gas struts. This give a large amount of light and air(if open) to the salon . It is through this hatch that food can be passed up to the one deck table. The salon has 6’3” of headroom. Forward of the salon is the galley which is down one step. There are carbon fiber countertops both port and starboard. The starboard side features a 3 burner gas cooktop and the portside has a double stainless steel sink and a front opening 12 volt refrigerator/freezer with storage cabinets. There are portlights port and starboard. Forward of the salon and down one step is the owner’s head with a with a carbon fiber countertop and sink inboard. (see photo), there is 6’3” of headroom in the head. One overhead hatch on one porthole. The owner’s cabin is aft of the salon and features a comfortable double berth opening portholes port and starboard and a opening hatch to the cockpit. There is storage under the berth, hanging locker and drawers.
Entering through the companionway to the Nav/station salon area there is a L-shaped settee inboard with the same large opening hatch to the deck. Outboard is the nav/station with carbon fiber counter top, electrical panel and electronics. Next forward is the head with carbon fiber countertop, sink, pressure hot and cold water, and shower. Next forward is the 3rd guest stateroom with double berth, drawers under and a hanging locker. There is a overhead hatch for ventilation The 2nd guest stateroom is aft of the nav station and features a double berth, storage under and a hanging locker. There are opening portholes port and starboard and a opening hatch to the deck.

Sails and Rig
The SIG45’s modern carbon rig was designed to be easily handled by a small crew, while retaining options for a racing crew to take advantage of the potential of the platform.
Simple reefs and sail changes The combination of the rotating carbon wing mast and the large high aspect ACC/ORMA60 style fully battened mainsail provides both power and a highly efficient sail shape. With three deep reefs and lazyjacks, the yacht can be quickly and easily depowered.
The SIG45’s headsails comprise a self-tacking blade jib, staysail and storm jib, plus a gennaker and asymmetric spinnaker. There are no runners or adjustable backstays, keeping handling simple. A Code 0 for upwind work in light airs is available as an option.
The gennaker/reacher, jib, staysail and storm jib are all reefed using Karver single line furlers. This makes reefing and sail changes simple and easy. The asymmetric spinnaker is set and doused using a sock.
Excellent upwind performance The SIG45’s headsails are flown from a single piece carbon bowsprit which extends forward from the main beam through the forward cross beam (which has a PBO martigale). The stiffness of this beam system helps to maintain luff tension in the jib. Luff tension and high aspect daggerboards are two of the keys to good upwind performance on a catamaran. Another advantage of the design is that the absence of waterstays dramatically reduced the amount of spray generated.
FULL NORTH SAIL INVENTORY:
3DL 600 mainsail with three reefing points with taffeta layer on both sides.
Karver continuous line furlers for staysail and gennaker
Dyneema cores sheets and halyards for all sails
Carbom Fiber rotating wing mast
Carbom Fiber boom
lazy bag for mainsail
LED lighting in spreaders and boom
Electrinc winch for main halyard
Split Harken main sail trackto reduce stack height
Deck layout Huge cockpit entirely free of ropes The SIG45 has a vast cockpit between the main and aft beams with a surface of nearly 40 square metres (400sqft). There are no sheets or other lines crossing this area. It is protected on all sides by coamings and / or lifelines at least 65cm high, creating a great area for both families and racing crews.
Crew Protection The twin helmstations are situated aft, well protected by the pilothouses and coamings (inspired by Bruno Peyron’s Orange 2). Even at speeds well in excess of 20 knots, the SIG45 is very dry. The aft helmstations provide excellent line of sight steering and keep the helmsman and sail trimmers close for good communication (and social interaction!). The three Harken sail trimming winches for mainsheet, traveller and headsails are within easy reach of the helmsman. The beautiful clear coat carbon tillers provide optimum feel, light weight and reliability.
Practical working areas Halyards, main- and head-sail reefing lines, mast rotation, cunningham, and daggerboards are controlled via a bank of Spinlock clutches and two Harken winches (one electric) from the winch island at the base of mast. The windlass and anchor chain are also located hear to keep weight well centred.

Port and starborad awning mounted on boom and rooftop carbon poles for use at anchor
