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.

The Alaskan 52
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.
