Endeavour 40/42/450 - Narrow beam?

Hey all, I have read a lot about the Endeavour 44 but I do like the layout of the 40/42/450 with the full beam spanning stateroom, and the “skylounge” in the case or the latter two.

However, I do have some concerns about stability with a 16’ beam combined with the height and weight up high of these boats. Anyone have any experience in weather with these boats or a similar design? The use would mostly be typical Loop cruising but there are many open bodies of water that can get pretty choppy depending on time of year.

Thanks!

I think you're overthinking this. I had to google it to find out what the boat was and found it's a catamaran. A cat with a 16' beam should handle much more than what you are comfortable with.


My boat is a monohull with a 15'7" beam. It's wide enough that other boat wakes don't rock it and most waves don't rock it much at all.


Sea trial one before you buy and I think you will be pleasantly surprised.

You could very well be right. But I don’t think a 16’ beam cat can be compared to a 16’ beam monohull in this respect.

Maybe I’ll ask it differently - wondering what are the design trade offs and handling trade offs compared to most 40’ cats, that are more like 20-22’ beam?

I can’t speak to the newer 450 boats. We have a 2004 44’ Cat Trawler, and she is very stable in most conditions. As with any cat, a full beam sea will produce some quick rolling motion, but any monohull in a beam sea will roll as well, except greater motion. You can’t beat the comfort and room, and the Endeavour are ready well built

Jack, I am looking at the ‘44 endeavour and have many questions but mainly about fuel consumption. Have you got any numbers regarding fuel. My wife and I are looking for a loop, coastal maybe Bahamas boat and think the endeavour might be the boat for us. Any feed back you have would be aporeciated
