FrontRunners: Fat Cat

    The hull of the first Royal Falcon Fleet RFF 135 (www.royalfalconfleet.com) arrived in Sweden in April, where it will be completed prior to its expected launch next spring. The 135- foot catamaran is the inaugural boat from Royal Falcon Fleet, which formed in 2007 as a collaboration between Swedish shipyard Kockums, Australian naval-architecture firm Incat Crowther, and Austria’s Porsche Design Studio. Reflecting its Porsche roots, the RFF 135 will be able to reach speeds as fast as 35 knots, while its 41-foot width will allow for more than 7,000 square feet of interior and exterior space. Pricing for the boat, which is made to order, starts at about $43 million.
