Boat Review: Excess 12


DEC 6, 2019


Groupe Beneteau, builder of Lagoon catamarans, has introduced a new multihull line called Excess. The first of the boats to reach U.S. shores at the Annapolis boat show was the Excess 12, a 38ft 6in design based on the popular Lagoon 40. The thought process behind this new boat was driven by customer feedback, with an eye toward creating a light, open cat that connects the crew more directly with the sailing experience. According to Beneteau, the target market for this sporty-looking design includes monohull sailors in search of something new and multihull aficionados looking for the wind-in-your-hair experience that makes them feel more “at one” with whatever boat they’re on.
