Your catamaran is most likely a TS42. Occasionally it will be the larger TS50, but for the majority of the time it is the 42.
These are performance cats – faster than any cruising cat on the charter market. The TS series will happily sit on 12-15 knots in a decent breeze. Made by Marsaudon composites, the TS42 comes in at a weight of just 5.8 tonnes. When you compare this to the high performance Outremer 45 at 8.7t, you can see how this bad boy is able to take off like it does.
The designer of the TS42, Cristophe Barreau, is in fact the same designer as many Outremers and Catanas.
You can see the layout of the TS42 below:
The interior is minimalist, and looks something like this:
