Features

 

The indikon k4 has been in development for over 4 years with our design partner Morrelli & Melvin.  They have applied all their design experience that has yielded boats such as the 2011 NACRA 17 Olympic catamaran and 2012 America’s Cup 72′ catamarans for Emirates Team New Zealand and Luna Rossa Challenge. The result is a truly unique vessel with incredible features:

Performance and Comfort

  • Lively & fast catamaran sailboat
  • The safety, confidence and fun of a fast motorboat
    • 15 kt cruising speed
  • Designed for a low fatigue ride with minimal pitching
  • Pete Melvin of Morrelli & Melvin comments on the indikon k4 “S” shape rocker line.Regarding the S shape in the rocker line, it does several things:

    1. Improves trim angle without having a very deep transom, thereby reducing resistance and increasing speed in both powering and sailing mode.

    2. Reduces pitching in both sailing and powering modes. Reduced pitching results in improved performance and a much more comfortable ride.

    3. Improves propeller shaft angle by moving the propeller upward relative to the engine, and thereby increasing powering efficiency.

    4. Helps reduce sailing resistance as well. This rocker line shape is even used in the ETNZ AC72, and our NACRA 17 Olympic class catamaran design!

Eco Efficient
