Alaskan 52 Power Catamaran by Schionning Designs introduces the Alaskan 52 to have every quality you need for serious long distance live aboard cruising.
The "Trawler" catchword is used on any and every type of vessel trying to project to the buyer a Trawler's solid heavy-duty ability to handle the sea because of its working heritage. Usually they are heavy, slow and purpose designed with huge motors to pull trawl loads, and are not the boat to cruise in. This is like travelling in a semi-trailer instead of a motor home.
In this way we have designed the Alaskan 52 to have every quality you need for serious long distance live aboard cruising. We use the most modern light-weight materials; sophisticated engineering and reliable new advances in technology and equipment to produce this perfectly balanced Power Cat.

Alaskan 41 Power Catamaran is a seaworthy passage maker, the Alaskan runs on very economical hulls, giving her cruising speeds of 16-17kts, and a top speed of 24kts pushed by just two 125hp Yanmar turbo diesels housed in separate engine rooms.
With such small Horse Power and very economical hull shapes the Alaskan has the fuel consumption figures to embarrass even the most frugal of monohull designs. Cruising at 16-17kts fuel consumption is 1.3ltrs per Nautical mile giving the Alaskan a range of close to 1000 sea miles. Sophisticated and stylish with accommodation to suit live aboard cruisers and well set up for very easy entertaining, this design suits a wide range of applications and can literally go anywhere.
Available in kit form with many parts pre-cut and our very latest construction plans with loads of detail, she is suitable for amateur or professional builders.
