This Morelli and Melvin designed custom 50 represents the summation of a veteran multihull owner's favorite parts of three legendary ultra high performance cruising cats. There is a nod here to the forward cockpit idea, while still providing protection from apparent wind and spray. There is a continuous open salon area connected with the aft cockpit on one level, giving a great indoor/outdoor feel. There is an aft starboard below sitting settee, which is ideal for many purposes. This is a unique, visionary cat, that has the best performance capabilities imaginable, combined with amazing forward thinking.

SHOOTING STAR SPECIFICATIONS
Shooting Star is a unique custom high performance cruising catamaran based on the design input of owners who have greater than 30,000 miles offshore multihull cruising experience. She is nearing final completion of the interior, but has been sea-trialed extensively over the last year. She is a joy to sail. She sails very smoothly with all weight distribution and hull shapes specifically designed to reduce pitching and enhance responsive steering. The helm is uniquely balanced throughout the various sail configurations and wind strengths. The sailing cockpit is protected, and all sail handling operations can be performed without getting cold or wet. All sheets and halyards are led to a winch deck and can be adjusted without letting go of the helm. The cockpit design allows passengers to be proximate to the sailors, without risk. The cockpit and sailing space has excellent 360 degree visibility, and is very convertible to allow protection in bad weather, dryness and warm in wet weather, and coolness in tropical heat.
The interior is designed with three private staterooms with large amount of storage, and private heads each hull. The galley is very large and contiguous to both the pilothouse and below decks settee/dining area. Both ventilation and heat systems are oversized for maximum comfort belowdeck.
