Join us for the launch of the Aspen 10,000 mile tour!
For Immediate Release:
An Aspen C120 is about to embark on an
This 40' Proa Catamaran
will cruise over 10,000 miles from Washington state to Annapolis, Maryland.
avid and Sue Ellen Jenkins - the proud owners of the brand new Aspen C120 Knot Wafflen' - have teamed up with Captain Blake Eder and Larry Graf, founder of Aspen Power Catamarans, to take their boat on a shake down cruise like no other.
Having already cruised to the
they will soon depart from Anacortes, Washington and head North into Canada and on to Alaska. This is just the beginning of the adventure. After some summer fun in Alaska the boat will turn South again and run from Juneau, down the Pacific
Coast with stops in
California before continuing
Cabo San Lucas and into the Sea of Cortez. From there the boat will be portaged across Mexico and Texas where she will be re-splashed in Galveston. The voyage continues through the Gulf of Mexico to the west coast of Florida, then Key West, the Bahamas and up the Eastern seaboard finishing the trip in Annapolis, Maryland.
This trip will be the longest water delivery in history for a 40' power cat!
Larry Graf, the founder of Aspen, is an open ocean adventurer with several firsts, including being the first to complete the Bermuda Challenge, crossing to Midway Island in the Pacific with a trailerable boat, and traversing the Bering straits in a trailerable cat.
Aside from having a great time the trip's goal is to clearly demonstrate the strength and all weather capabilities of Aspen Power Catamarans. Aspen's patented Power Proa-Hull makes a trip like this feasible and fun. The design, with its deep displacement hulls and high bridge deck,
slices heavy seas while the twin asymmetrical Proa hulls
(one 35% larger) slip easily through the water, creating very little drag. The net efficiency of the single engine cat allows speeds in the teens with single digit hourly fuel burn rate. This unique design provides performance never achieved before in a 40', multi stateroom, multi head, flybridge cruiser.
