Competition to WIN a brand new EXCESS Catamaran

2 April 2019 | 36 Degrees News

The chance to win a brand new EXCESS Catamaran is up for grabs, and 36 Degrees Brokers would love to see the lucky recipient bring it to New Zealand’s shores. 

The global competition comes in the form of a virtual race, whereby the participant can make three record attempts sailing between Barcelona and Cannes, with the best time used to determine a final ranking. (Click here for full rules and details.)

This unique range of catamarans was revealed earlier this year with the first two models set to be showcased in Europe in September. Launched by Beneteau Group, both the Excess 12 and Excess 15 are said to be “inspired by racing, for cruising pleasure”.  

The super high aspect ratio rig, twin helm stations aft and contemporary interior are just some of the features which set this range apart and add something different to the multihull market. 

The first NZ order has already been placed, and 36 Degrees owner Conrad Gair says it would be fantastic for another Kiwi to get the chance to own one. 

“The chance to win a brand new boat of this calibre doesn’t come along very often. We’re hoping to spread the word and get as many New Zealander’s taking up the challenge as we can – as it would be great to see more of the Excess range here,” he says.   

By joining the challenge, you’ve not only got the opportunity to win a new catamaran, but also a weeks’ catamaran charter and also a weeks cabin cruise for two. 

So whether you’re a seasoned sailor, a virtual sailing enthusiast, or just naturally good with tech and have a bit of nautical know-how, this challenge is for all.
