An Open Ocean 740 Performance Cruising Catamaran, Skimmer has been designed with a tall rig, carrying a large sail area, and a deep keel and rudder to offer above-average levels of performance. She has a pleasing low-profile fly bridge design, yet one still has the feeling of being on a much larger yacht. Designed to cruise the world, the 740S has a comfortable interior that has been optimised for the best use of space and interior flow. She has 5 double en suite cabins, accommodating 10 people comfortably, as well as 2 crew cabins to accommodate 4 crew, allowing the owners to welcome guests onto their boat wherever they may be in the world.
