This Owner’s version Admiral Executive 40 is one of the best cruising Catamarans in her size. With her wide beam, (24 feet) she feels much larger and handles extremely well off shore. She was delivered from Cape Town South Africa where Admiral built her, to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida on her own bottom and sailed the 7,000 mile passage as a shake down cruise. These Cats sail so well the primary delivery captain for Admiral purchased one for himself. These Admirals sailed from South Africa on their own hulls to the USA as a shake down cruise. These beamy Catamarans were well built and have very strong hulls that have a low center of gravity making them safe and nimble ocean crossing vessels. Punta Azul has a generator and Air Conditioning and loads of cruising gear. She is ready for new adventures with her lucky buyer, she is comfortable, and ready to go. Schedule a showing soon as she won’t last long in this market.
Sails and rigging She has a code zero sail on her bowsprite, a large genoa and a battened mainsail with stack pack.

Accommodations Punta Azul is a 3 cabin 2 head owner version Admiral Executive. She has a large cockpit with a large 2 or 3 person helm seat bench. The salon and galley deck allows for a spacious entertaining and cooking. The 2 hulls are wide and loaded with storage space. The owner side has a small desk and a large head with huge shower forward. The guest side has a head between cabins and a separate shower stall. Punta Azul is USA duty paid and imported.
The theoretical maximum speed that a displacement hull can move efficiently through the water is determined by it's waterline length and displacement. It may be unable to reach this speed if the boat is underpowered or heavily loaded, though it may exceed this speed given enough power. Read more.
Classic hull speed formula:
Hull Speed = 1.34 x √LWLA more accurate formula devised by Dave Gerr in The Propeller Handbook replaces the Speed/Length ratio constant of 1.34 with a calculation based on the Displacement/Length ratio.
Max Speed/Length ratio = 8.26 ÷ Displacement/Length ratio.311
Hull Speed = Max Speed/Length ratio x √LWL
A measure of the power of the sails relative to the weight of the boat. The higher the number, the higher the performance, but the harder the boat will be to handle. This ratio is a "non-dimensional" value that facilitates comparisons between boats of different types and sizes. Read more.
SA/D = SA ÷ (D ÷ 64)2/3
A measure of the stability of a boat's hull that suggests how well a monohull will stand up to its sails. The ballast displacement ratio indicates how much of the weight of a boat is placed for maximum stability against capsizing and is an indicator of stiffness and resistance to capsize.
Ballast / Displacement * 100
A measure of the weight of the boat relative to it's length at the waterline. The higher a boat’s D/L ratio, the more easily it will carry a load and the more comfortable its motion will be. The lower a boat's ratio is, the less power it takes to drive the boat to its nominal hull speed or beyond. Read more.
D/L = (D ÷ 2240) ÷ (0.01 x LWL)³
This ratio assess how quickly and abruptly a boat’s hull reacts to waves in a significant seaway, these being the elements of a boat’s motion most likely to cause seasickness. Read more.
Comfort ratio = D ÷ (.65 x (.7 LWL + .3 LOA) x Beam1.33)
This formula attempts to indicate whether a given boat might be too wide and light to readily right itself after being overturned in extreme conditions. Read more.
CSV = Beam ÷ ³√(D / 64)
