‘Inspired by racing for cruising pleasure’ is the philosophy of the Excess 12 and is present in every well thought out aspect of this boat. The view from the double helm, the finesse of the sail trimming and the high aspect rig ratio are all designed to create a well-proportioned vessel capable of both coastal and off-shore cruising. Borrowing from Monohull design, the double aft helm stations give ultimate control at the helm while ensuring the skipper never misses a beat with guests.
