Excess Owners Stories - Hiroshi Hamada

Having sailed monohulls for many years, Hiroshi decided to make a change and switch to catamarans, with one clear goal in mind: the incredible Excess 15!

"My dream boat has always been the flagship model, the Excess 15. I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it, two years ago."

With its bright interior, 25-meter mast, and twin helm stations on the aft end of the hulls, the Excess 15 ticked all the boxes.

And what about the Tribe?

"I didn't expect to be so close to the people who work with Excess, both those who work on the yard and the builder."

As you can see, Hiroshi is delighted with his Excess, but also with the teams!
