This is a listing for a new semi-custom built Alibi 54 with 9 month delivery from order.When we say that the new Alibi 54 catamaran is one of the most revolutionary performance cruisers to appear on today's market - we really mean it.

Sailors might have noticed that not much has changed in the last 2 decades and catamarans of the 80's do not look much different than the ones sailing today. Enter the Alibi 54 - an unprecedented new concept, designed from the ground up by the best naval architects and constructed in one of the most high tech yards in the world.

Performance and reliability of the Alibi 54 are emphasized by innovative features - many firsts on a cruising boat, such as hybrid electric drives, asymmetric daggerboards, square-topped mainsail, wing-mast and an ingenious tender storage under the nacelle just to name a few. Best of all - customers will appreciate the fact that they are not forced into a certain layout or option package. The Alibi 54 is marketed and built by a small team of industry professionals, such as naval architects, ocean racers and expert composite craftsmen who will listen to clients' requirements and build a unique boat around their program. There are very few high performance cruising catamarans on today's market. The ones on offer are very expensive and really do not present any new features. The Alibi 53 will become a limited production boat and is offered at a very attractive introductory price, presenting a unique opportunity for the discerning enthusiast to custom build a unique performance catamaran at nearly 40% less than the competition.

This offer is for an early delivery build slot at a special introductory price. Construction at the Alibi shipyard would take approx. 9 months from order.
