What makes the HH50 unique is its ability to sail a percentage of the wind speed much higher than other cruising cats. Being a daggerboard boat you can claw to windward more and increase speed downwind. The HH50 is a high-end performance cruising catamaran all the while offering top level construction and accommodations.
What makes the boat different? Well, first its the design prowess of Morelli and Melvin and the exacting standards of the engineers and staff of HH Catamarans. The HH brand accommodates the small niche of people who demand performance, quality, and high-end accommodations.
Equally important is the experience of Rocknak's to guide you through the build. We have visited with, and know, the key personnel at the factory on a first name basis. Rocknak's has the capability to train you in your boat and provide service and support while you own your new OC50. Ask for recommendations.
Where the HH Catamarans HH50 differs from the HH Catamarans OC50: The HH50 has a carbon composite hull, deck, and super structure. All the bulkheads, floors, and supporting components are also carbon fiber. The carbon construction allows for lighter weight among other things. The standard mast is carbon fiber and has more strength than an aluminum spar. This opens up the ability to push the envelope by a larger margin. The HH50 has two helms vs one on the OC50. There are other differences as well. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for the full comparison sheet.
On your first sea trial you will find the boat turns quickly, is stable, points much higher than what you have been accustomed to on charter cats, and can be maneuvered easily in port. The transoms stay out of the water, the boat is dry, and the bridge deck design allows for quiet passages.
The boat is predictable, has excellent bridge deck clearance, and exudes quality. Inquire how to see the boat yourself. You will see why visitors at the boat shows and those that have been aboard say the HH Catamaran is their favorite.
