Euro 1480 Bi-Plane

Schionning Designs Commercial Catamarans

Euro 1480 Bi-Plane

The Euro 1480 Bi-Plane is a new custom design commissioned by a client wanting to think outside the box and utilise the bi-plane rig on a commercial vessel. The concept suits commercial work well due to it's simplicity and the outward situated masts mean that the interior bridgedeck space can be utilised more effectively.

The interior layout of the Euro 1480 Bi-Plane features a large main cabin with ensuite situated forward on the bridgedeck, with a walk-around galley behind leading out to a large cockpit with plenty of seating for guests. Two queen cabins are located down in each hull, with their own toilet and shower and a smaller berth forward.

This layout would suit skippered chartering with crew occupying one cabin and guests in the main cabin, or any desired combination. The bi-plane rig means easy sailing and sail handling with minimal sail controls cluttering the deck space. ​

She has capacity for 32 guests with a focus on sailing ability to give customers a true multihull experience.

G-Force 2350

The G-Force 2350 is currently the biggest Schionning design to date (not including concept designs) and one example is operating as a charter vessel in the Caribbean. ​

Zara - Royal Naval Dockyard Bermuda - Schionning Designs G-Force 2350 Catamaran 1

Measuring in at a staggering 23.5 metres, and 10 metres wide - the parameters have really given the design team a blank canvas with which to create the flagship of our company.

This design is perfect for charter work, and one example of this design is currently working in Bermuda however it is customised and not a performance vessel.

The G-Force 2350 began as an exclusive custom design however is now available for amateur and professional construction. Any of our recommended Schionning builders on the production page could deliver a beautiful example of this design.

G-Force 2000

SDI - G-Force 2000 - Schionning Designs International

G-Force 2000

The G-Force Series has continued to grow from the very first G-Force 1400 over ten years ago.

Now another bigger sister has joined the ranks - commissioned by an experienced G-Force owner Tony Longhurst, the 2000 is a specialised version that has some small changes and added waterline length. With his beautiful G-Force 1800 'KATO' having turned many heads, it is now time for the G-Force 2000!

With a 19.50 metre waterline length, the G-Force 2000 is the largest G-Force design to be launched. Noosa Marine completed the build of the first boat, using very distinctive carbon fibre panels with an end-grain balsa core from ATL Composites. Extreme measures have been taken to reduce weight and produce one of the lightest and fasest cruising multihulls on the water. The dog bowl and toilet are even carbon fibre! The boat is equipped with North Sails 3Di technology, Southern Spars rig and furling boom, along with Oceanvolt electric propulsion.

Thank you for your interest in Schionning Designs!

G-Force 1800 SSS

G-Force 1800 SSS Catamaran - SDI - Schionning Designs International

G-Force 1800 SSS

The G-Force 1800 SSS is a little meaner and leaner than the ‘C’ (Cruise) design, with the waterline beam ratio at 15:1, the freeboard slightly lower, the forward double bunks on the bridgdeck have been removed, moving the trampolines back 1.5m and then using a ‘soft’ bottom shoe with all stealth type styling above.

The displacement is slightly lighter at 11 tonnes compared with 12.5 tonnes, this increases her power to weight ratio positively.

'ZERO' is the first SSS design on the water and was built by Cure Composites using Cure Fusion panels, made in-house. The finish as you can see is beautiful, with a stark black and white interior colour scheme and stainless furnishings.

The Study Plans are currently being prepared and will be available soon for download.

The G-Force 1800 SSS is a lightweight performance cruiser with serious style and luxury.

G-Force 1800 C

G-Force 1800 Cruise Catamaran - SDI - Schionning Designs

G-Force 1800 Cruise

The G-Force 1800C is the ultimate in high performance cruising catamarans. This design has been the basis for a number of vessels and new designs, including the Legend 60, the 1800SSS and the 2000 Speciale. ​

Staying true to her heritage she is extremely quick while not compromising too much of the luxury that one expects from a design of this size. Inside we have a number of different layout options, however the standard layout features two king sized cabins forward, a split up/down galley and spacious saloon that opens onto a large cockpit.

Twin helms have been the favorite choice when it comes to the smaller G-Force designs however the 1800C leans more toward easier sailing and even single-handing, utilizing a single helm station with all sail controls running back to one central location.

Powered systems are recommended if you're thinking of handling the boat short-handed (a couple for instance), these systems are invaluable for hoisting sails and controlling the entire boat with the push of a button (or touchpad).

The G-Force 1800C is a one-of-a-kind performance oriented cruising catamaran with a generous payload and plenty of room for all of the toys you'd expect.

G-Force 1700 Cruise Catamaran - SDI - Schionning Designs

G-Force 1700 Cruise

With a huge amount of interest in the schionning Designs International G-Force 1700 design, this cruising version just had to happen. Everyone loves the concept and look, and dreams of being the young at heart racer they probably once were, but now having matured into a sensible, almost balanced individual, they realise some common sense needs to be put into the mix. No, not enough to be boring – just enough to allow fast cruising in a cutting edge lean but not too mean cat.

With a huge amount of interest in our G-Force 1700 design, this cruising version just had to happen. Everyone loves the concept and look, and dreams of being the young at heart racer they probably once were, but now having matured into a sensible, almost balanced individual, they realise some common sense needs to be put into the mix.

No, not enough to be boring - just enough to allow fast cruising in a cutting edge lean but not too mean cat. For round the world cruising, and this is where most are aimed, a little more displacement is needed to carry the payload of enough food, water and those few essential toys like surfboards, a kayak or dive tanks that make cruising so much more fun.

A cat this size really demands some luxury and better room in the individual hulls to feel like home. These are the changes she accommodates very well yet she remains nice and slim at 13.4:1 waterline beam ratio.

There is that little bit more headroom in the saloon and easier walk-down headroom over the steps, things racers can live without in their quest to win.

The G-Force 1700C is a mid to large-sized performance cruiser that will embarass other catamaran owners in regattas and sleep 6-8 family or friends comfortably.

G-Force 1500 C

G-Force 1400 Catamaran - SDI - Schionning Designs International

G-Force 1500 C

With our G-Force 1500 design blasting it’s way to the top of the podium in local races and dominating the Asian race circuit with line honours and race records it’s no wonder the G-Force performance range have caught the imagination of so many cat sailors.

Peter Wilcox (GF1500 Owner “Mojo”) is finding her a very comfortable cruiser having now clocked up thousands of ocean miles but he needs to keep her mean and lean for speed, and while we all imagine ourselves as serious racing sailors as we of course used to be a reality check in the mirror sadly reflects a rather more mature sailor with often a very different beam to length ratio.

Add in the kids and grandchildren and it becomes clear our real requirements are a little different now. Usher in the new G-Force 1500 “Cruise” design, this is definitely a better fit as she can carry the extra cruising gear we need for that circumnavigation, the toys we want and the comfortable accommodation to have family and friends join us as and where they can.

However it is important that she retains her blood lines, good beam to length ratios, fresh power to weight ratios and a moderate mast height and yet just so easy to sail.

CE compliance is optional with this design. European owners and builders will require this. Displacement has been increased to carry the additional structural requirements and provide good cruising payload.
