Aspen Power Catamarans has launched a new 35-foot outboard power Proa Catamaran. The Aspen C108 expands on the company’s patented hull design featuring both non-symmetrical hulls and power that provide exceptional efficiency, tracking, and performance in all sea conditions.
According to Aspen, the C108 was inspired in part by current adventure-seeking Aspen owners who wanted an eco-friendly cruiser that could also be easily moved to new cruising grounds. By increasing the beam to 10 feet 8 inches, the LOA remains under 40 feet, while expanding the interior accommodation space and still allowing the boat to be trailered. A combined boat and trailer towing weight of approximately 12,500 pounds (Aluminum trailer) means the C108 can be easily towed by a standard ¾-ton or larger pickup truck. Owners can enjoy flexibility, whether simply hauling out for the winter or transporting their C108 to different cruising areas.
Aspen appears to have employed an expansive layout in the C108, with a large salon finished in fine teak that boasts 30 percent more livable space than previous Aspen models. Full-height wraparound Solar Guard windows provide remarkable visibility while underway from the five-person C-shaped dinette and the twin Bentley helm seats. The 12-foot-long galley has an oven/stove combo, microwave, stainless steel sink and multiple Burmese teak drawers. According to the builder, cabin space is unparalleled for a boat this size and includes three private cabins. Multiple hatches and portholes permit ventilation and light when not running heat or air conditioning. An expansive head with shower and a master suite with a king-sized bed reflect accommodations typically found on larger vessels.
