The Moxie 61 TOSCA was created to bring cruisers what racers have enjoyed for years: fast, safe, no-compromise sailing. With one extra twist: sailing in luxury.
TOSCA offers an impeccable pedigree and luxurious appointments in an ultra-light, all-carbon construction. Safe, user-friendly, and featuring ocean-tested solutions, TOSCA reflects VPLP's 25 year history of record-setting designs. With lines that spell speed and elegance, TOSCA is a world-class multihull for all sailors - monohull racers, luxury cruisers, and anyone seeking high performance, comfort, and safety at sea.
With numerous performance, bluewater catamarans on offer in today's market, how does one distinguish between another polyester production cat and a Stradivarius. Quality of construction, materials, design features, equipment, volume, amenities?
An all carbon-epoxy over core-cell foam construction, TOSCA sails with the best of the very high performance catamarans. She is equipped with a rotating carbon wing mast, all textile standing rigging, carbon dagger-boards and rudders. VPLP developed hull shapes for the Moxie 61 directly from the ORMA 60 class. The mast is placed on the aft salon beam to optimize weight placement and create a large foretriangle for powerful headsails.
The distinctive, beam to beam (TEUG) coach-roof design expands the interior space and headroom. TOSCA has salon, cabin, bathroom volumes and headroom that rival cruising cats from France and Poland in this size range. Huge, tempered glass windows at the front of the salon provide unobstructed views forward.
In 2017-2018, TOSCA underwent an extensive $400K refit including:
- New LORIMA carbon rotating wing mast
- All new standing textile rigging by FUTURE FIBRES
- New NORTH sails (main, solent and genoa)
- Two new 80 HP YANMAR engines
- All new electronics including B&G plotters, radar, wind, log, speed repeaters and transducers
- New MASTERVOLT Lithium-Ion battery pack
Over the last three years, the yacht has been continuously improved with a priority to comfort and practicality. Helm seats with generous binnacle mounts for plotters and instruments were installed. Folding biminis were placed over the helm seats. Handholds were added around the coach-roof and steps were lengthened to facilitate safe movement on deck. A full cockpit enclosure (isenglass) was fitted for all weather protection in the cockpit. Recently, all canvas was replaced including mainsail cover, winch covers. The salon and cockpit upholstery is all new.
An 8KVA generator was added to run large AC consumers: battery chargers and inverters, air-conditioning, water-maker, electric winches. The entire 24V system was refitted with new toggle switch breakers to back-up the digital switches.
The electronics were upgraded with new B&G plotters at each helm and the chart table. New fuel bladders were fitted and the water tanks consolidated. New sail-drives have been purchased and delivered and will be installed at the next haul out. A complete list of upgrades is listed in the attached inventory.
New sail-drives and rudder bearings installed in May 2023. New bottom paint in May 2023.
TOSCA is in Freeport, Bahamas and we would be delighted to show this truly groundbreaking design to motivated prospects.
