Palma 30 Fast Catamaran
Innovative, state-of-the-art design
The Palma 30 builds upon the expertise of Nicolas Purnu, a long-time associate of Marc Lombard for multi-hull designs, and of Jean-Noel Lebrun, with 40 years of fiberglass works.
Our objective was to offer a fast, safe, very light yet exceedingly comfortable 30 foot catamaran that will meet the sharpest family cruising requirements.
Hulls have been optimized for performance & stability. We have streamlined accommodations to save unnecessary weight and we have centered equipment as much as possible.
The innovative deck design reduces aerodynamic drag while optimizing the space available for the crew as well as movements on board.
The yachts are built by Windpearl Yachts in Charente-Maritime using infusion techniques. The sandwich hull and deck use exclusively PVC foam and vinylester resin for increased strength and durability.
Built for performance
The Palma 30 with its Performance Package offers up to 74 m2 for upwind sailing under 3 tons of MSC displacement.
With a square top mainsail, a bowsprit, chine hulls, and a 5.70 m beam she is a fast and stiff yacht across all wind conditions.
Flexible navigation plans
The Palma 30 maximum draft is 0,99. Her two fins will let you beach deep inside lagunas and harbours, further extending your navigation reach.
Great for friends & family cruising
Each Palma 30 configuration offers two aft cabins with 1.40m wide double-berths and 1.90 m headroom.
The Navigateur and Grand Tourisme versions may add two smaller cabins forwards. They
are accessed directly from the companionways and have 1.20 m wide berths at the head.
The Navigateur version is equipped with one starboard bath while the Grand Tourisme version may have one bath per hull.
A comfortable deck saloon
The Open version is dedicated to day sailing, the center cockpit hosts up to twelve guests. You may add a deck shower, a kitchen sink and a 90 liter refrigerator under deck.
The Navigateur version features a PMMA windshield and large sprayhood, the deck saloon may be completely enclosed in bad weather.
The galley is either located in the port side hull (standard Navigateur layout) or up on the deck (Summertime and Classic layouts).
The heavier Grand Tourisme version features a hardtop roof over the deck saloon.
The standard Grand Tourisme version has a large U shaped kitchen behind the windshield (Classic layout).
The Grand Tourism version also offers a Nordic configuration with the galley under deck, two Diesel engines and a Webasto heating system.
The Palma 30 is equipped with Incidences sails, Z-Spar masts, Harken & Antal gear, Lancelin ropes, Ruchaud upholstery, Vectran lifelines, and Lewmar Delta anchors.
Standard configurations include a 13 m long mast. A Performance package delivers extra power with a 14 m long mast, a bowsprit, three high-end Aramide or CZ laminate sails, and two extra winches.
You may select from different types of sails, Honda outboards, Nanni inboard engines, as well as NKE or Raymarine electronics & autopilot.
As an option, we also offer synthetic teak from Flexiteek for the cockpit floor.
Options for long range cruising
The Palma 30 may be fitted with a water-maker, a 130 liters freezer, 780 W solar panels, and two diesel engines & tanks to let you sail in full autonomy for extended periods of time.
Easy to handle
The Palma 30 twin helm stations provide excellent visibility across the horizon and all around the yacht hulls. With its five winches, controls remain always at your fingertips.
The powerful yacht mainsail is controlled through a dedicated winch located at the center of the aft cockpit bench. The low blocks of the mainsail tackle are mounted on a Harken big-boat cart & rail to allow for fast and precise adjustments.
To free the gangways and to facilitate movements along the yacht, the shroud chainplates
are bolted to the yacht structure on the roof sides instead of the hulls.
Davits are available as an option to store the tender right behind the transom.
If you choose a single outboard engine, it will always run coupled to the rudders while the option of two outboard or inboard engines will provide extra flexibility in tight marinas.
Nanni inboard engines and electrical pods are also available.
The right choice for the environment
The light weight of the Palma 30 means its construction is a small drain on our planet resources when compared to heavy cruising cats.
The Palma 30 will also save you money
Equipped with an outboard engine and two sails, the Palma 30 Open starts at 110.000 €,
the Navigateur at 139.500 € and the GT version at 152.000 €, plus VAT.
When their navigation programs evolve, owners may take advantage of our upgrade kits to migrate their catamarans from an Open to a Navigateur or Grand Tourisme version.
