Aikane T 52

Aikane T 52

The design of the T 52’ Explorer was done bearing in mind the need for a small versatile cargo catamaran offering very large deck space for its length. Yet, the design allows the platform to be customized to just about any interior finish or usage one may require or desire.

Each hulls is divided into watertight compartments, each of them equipped with two independent bilge pumping systems making the T 52’ Explorer a very safe vessel.
