LAUNCH OF THE SIRUS RACHA 1530 CATAMARAN
by Sirus Asia Catamarans Co. Ltd Thailand
Continuing in our efforts to develop our line of quality aluminium performance cruising catamarans Sirus Asia Catamarans has now located to a new fabrication and fit out premises east of Bangkok in Chonburi / Chomtien Thailand on the southern outskirts of the better know holiday destination of Pattaya.
The Australian Government Trade Commission has supported our move to our new location in Thailand and are giving us continued assistance in dealing with Thailand departments for importation of products from Australia and elsewhere in the world for our projects along with logistical support in Thailand.
Our team now comprises of skilled Thai Lloyds and DNV certified welders and fabricators supported by western Naval Architects and technical quality assurance teams
Our Sirus Racha 1530 cats are produced from a full CAD pre-cut kit
to streamline production and remove any precision factors from the
plate nesting, development and cutting process.
We have full supervision on the shop floor at all times during all stages with the western technical staff covering quality assurance aspects. Our quality assurance staff liaises between our Naval Architects, construction team supervisors, western electrical engineers and Thai fabrication and fit out crews to maintain a strict level of quality control. Quality assurance contributes to our branding program and enhances market values giving excellent re-sale values for our catamarans.
As with all of our projects R & D continues with improvements and upgrades as an ongoing process.
All plans are now to CE/ISO standards and the structural production is to CE standards. Standards achieved are to European and world class
Our first Sirus Racha 15.30M / 50.19 foot has been moved from the fabrication shed to the fit out shed in September. A few weeks later our 2nd Sirus Racha 1530 catamaran begins.
Notable inclusions are:
Duel walkthrough transoms, outside dining table to port, large sized
cockpit area in line with European concepts for out door living, alloy
cabin soles / floors giving a second skin and watertight integrity
throughout the vessel, water and fuel capacity for long distance
cruising located in the hulls providing not only extra capacity but
water tight integrity, windows angled to reduce heat intrusion into
the coach roof, a large upstairs user friendly gourmet galley,
international standard electrical systems, introduction of dedicated
black water holding tanks and sewage treatment systems, sealed AGM
batteries, addition of Brunton’s UK Autoprops for better motoring
performance and a reduction in diesel usage per mile, engine
capacity of 54 HP, 20 metre / 65.61 foot alloy rig and custom
single line reefing boom system with all controls leading aft to the
safety of the cockpit, headroom in the main saloon to over 2 mtrs /
All other Aluminum fabricated hatches are recessed into the deck with drains overboard.
Quality Anderson stainless winches have been added including one electric model for ease of halyard control from the cockpit.
Hatches and ports are quality Moonlight hatches from Denmark.
For ease of use and protection for the propellers and rudders mini keels have been installed. The hulls are sleek and hydro- dynamic, weight are low for a cat of this size even though the vessels strength is in line with CE / ISO requirements.
Very important bridge deck clearances have been maintained at 850mm in lightship mode.
Weighing in at just 8575 kg displacement / 18867 lbs and an immersion factor of 1026 kg/cm the Sirus Racha 1530 are very weight efficient considering their 15.3 metres / 50.19 foot size in length with a beam of 7.695 Metres / 25.24 foot.
Semi custom requirements can be catered for with the personalizing of the Sirus Racha to private owner standards. A semi custom built production catamaran has the best of both worlds.
New Owners programs are set in place with comprehensive training on
systems aboard supported by full wiring diagrams of the electrical
systems aboard and plumbing systems.
We offer a number of opportunities to own one of these cats with a suitable scheme for all budgets.
