Broadblue 385 Sport Catamaran is a well designed, well maintained Luxury Catamaran. The Broadblue 385 is designed to be a fast, responsive, coastal or blue water cruiser built to the normal high quality standards of Broadblue Catamarans. She has the optional Twin Stateroom Interior, larger owner bath with separate shower, owner’s desk with custom made cabinets and cupboard, guest bath/shower combination, walk-in locker, hard top bimini with dodger.
It meets the highest European Union boatbuilding standard, which can be seen in its six floatation compartments and aluminum-framed glass windows. Both one-piece hull and deck mouldings are hand laid glassfibre, using powder – bound mat, biaxial clothes, woven rovings, isopthalic resin. Below the waterline, the hulls are solid laminate,.5 to 1.25 inches thick, with Kevlar reinforcing in high-load areas, while the topsides and deck incorporate an end grain balsa core. The deck has an integrally moulded non – slip finish.
Rudders are skeg hung on stainless steel stocks with self-lubricating bearings. The steering system is hydraulic with the rudders linked together with a cross-link beam. The hydraulic arm is attached direct to the rudder shaft. The port rudder has an access cover above and is designed to accept an emergency tiller.
The hull and deck join is fully bonded and protected by a substantial rubbing strake. Many of the structural bulkheads are of vacuum bagged foam core, and when the interior furniture is fully bonded, in a light and stiff ‘honeycomb’ structure is created. The 385 is virtually unsinkable due to its watertight bulkheads and buoyancy compartments fore and aft. The keels are integrally moulded and sealed off from the hulls forming a double bottom. Antifouling paint.
The 385 is designed for the cruising couple who need more comfort and storage aboard. The galley and saloon are very spacious and contain handcrafted joinery.
The striking bows, along with the specially designed bridgedeck, are the result of thirty years of design experience. This design allows the boat to sail over the waves with less water over the bow creating a dry, smooth, seakindly ride with sparkling sailing performance.The end result is a beautiful boat that delivers comfort and safety at sea. The 385 is built to the highest level of the European Recreational Craft Directive: Category A (Ocean) and is built using Lloyds approved materials.
