Maybe the marketing department did the web page......

"Imagine gliding effortlessly across the water at a 14 to 16 knots cruise while consuming only 2 to 4 gallons of fuel per hour!"

The proof comes from owners. I'm a member of the MotorCat forum, and all the owners cruise too fast for good mpg numbers, always over 20 kt.

But multiple owners of the Aspen proa catamaran using a single inboard diesel got 4 nmpg on their last big PNW outing, while Aspen marketing doesn't claim such good numbers. That doesn't generally happen, real world experience better than the hype.
