The brand has an extensive network of dealers in Europe, USA, Asia and Australia.
The first models of sailing catamarans Excess 12 and Excess 15 are the result of a collaboration between VPLP design (nautical architecture), Patrick le Quement (exterior design) and Nauta Design (internal design).
In general, Excess boats claim to win the glory of cruising catamarans with a sporty character. The sail area/displacement ratio of the Excess is higher than that of standard cruising catamarans. The displacement of the mast towards the stern and the reduction in the length of the boom made it possible to use an automatic staysail, which increased the efficiency of maneuvers and ease of control of the vessel.
