ALACRITY is an excellent example of Fusion Catamarans. Fusion catamarans came in kit form from Australia using computer design and foam core / glass w/Vinylester resin (so no osmosis). The sections were then shipped in 2 40ft containers to the builder. Alacrity was built by expert craftsman in the former Manta Catamaran factory in Sarasota Florida.

Gary Lidgard’s Fusion 40 catamaran model was designed after lengthy consultation with multihull owners worldwide. The result is a mid sized cat with features that ideally suit an owner who needs good cruising comfort along with a light and relatively nimble performance. Gary Litgard’s design for the Fusion 40 was truly a fusion of the best Australian catamaran design concepts. Fusions have a central electric winch in the cockpit as innovated by Lock Crowther and commonly seen on Catanas. They have an Owner’s Hull layout with huge aft owner’s shower & head very much like that of the successful Perry 43. And they have a ‘barn door’ cockpit/salon integration and protective hard bimini similar to Seawinds. Litgard added a galley up and surprisingly good CAD assisted ergonomics to the package and integrated everything into a sleek and seakindly profile.
