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. Enjoy your voyage less work and more fun with this state of the
art sailing system.
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

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

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
