Palma 30 Fast Cruising 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 is to offer a fast, safe, very light yet exceedingly comfortable 30 foot catamaran. Its modular design will meet the sharpest family cruising requirements.
Hulls are optimized for performance & stability. The deck design reduces aerodynamic drag while optimizing the space available for the crew as well as movements on board.
The yachts are built in Charente-Maritime (France) using infusion techniques. The sandwich hull and deck use Airex PVC foam for increased strength, weight savings, and durability.
Built for performance
With a square top mainsail, a bowsprit, chine hulls, and a 5.70 m beam the Palma 30 is a fast and stiff yacht across all wind conditions.
The yacht Performance Package offers up to 81 m2 for upwind sailing and its MSC displacement is well under three tons. A carbon rotating mast from AGPlus is also available.
Flexible navigation plans
The Palma 30 maximum draft is 0,99 m. Her two fins will let you sail and 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, Grand Tourisme, and Grand Voyageur versions may add two smaller cabins forwards. They are accessed directly from the companionways and have 1.20 m wide berths at the head.
Each cruising yacht is equipped with a full bath on Starboard and may host a second bath, a small office, or a galley on Port.
A choice of deck configurations
The Open version is dedicated to day sailing with its large cockpit hosting 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 a large sprayhood which may extend up to the composite arch and completely enclose the deck saloon in bad weather.
The heavier Grand Tourisme and Grand Voyageur versions feature a composite coachroof, which will extend up to the aft beam for the Grand Voyageur.
The Navigateur and Grand Tourisme units offer several choices of kitchen configuration: under deck on Port, U-shaped behind the mast, or L shaped at the yacht center.
As an option, a forward deck saloon with a U shaped bench around a folding table will complement the trampoline on Port.
Options for long range cruising
Except for the Open version, all Palma 30 units may be fitted with a water-maker, a 130 liter deep-freezer, solar panels, and two diesel engines to sail in full autonomy for extended periods of time.
The Nordic configuration combines a galley under deck, a fully enclosed deck saloon, two diesel engines, and a Webasto heating system.
The Grand Voyageur version combines three cabins under deck with an L-shaped kitchen above deck, two diesel engines, a water maker, a deep-freezer, 880 W solar panels, and a code 0.
The Palma 30 is equipped with Incidences sails, Z-Spar masts, Harken & Antal gear, Lancelin ropes, Ruchaud upholstery, Vectran lifelines, Lewmar Delta anchors, as well as NKE or Raymarine electronics and autopilot.
Standard configurations include a 13 m long mast. The Performance package delivers extra power with a 14 m long mast, a bowsprit, three high-end Aramide & CZ laminate sails, and two extra winches.
As options we also offer synthetic teak from Flexiteek for the cockpit floor as well as a composite wall between the aft cockpit and the deck saloon.
Your choice of engines
You may select one or two Honda outboards, two Nanni inboard engines, or two electrical pods and their lithium battery bank.
If you choose a single outboard engine it will run coupled to the rudders. Using two outboard or inboard engines will provide extra flexibility in tight marinas.
Easy to handle
The Palma 30 twin helm stations provide excellent visibility across the horizon and all around the yacht hulls. With up to 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 hull sides.
Davits are available as an option to store a tender behind the transom beam.
The right choice for the environment
The light weight of the Palma 30 means its construction is a smaller drain on our planet resources 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 105 000 €,
