This new model will retain the DNA of the range, created with VPLP design and Patrick Le Quément for the first generation of Excess catamarans. 
With the architectural expertise of Lombard (MLYDG), the Excess Design Team continues to develop an innovative and dynamic second generation of Excess catamarans. 


For the Lombard team, integrating the Excess Catamarans brand with this new project is a challenge we’ve been delighted to take on! 
In partnership with the Excess design office, we were keen to develop the design of this new catamaran to reinforce the brand’s strengths. 
The brief was simple yet ambitious: to create a catamaran that’s evolving and balanced, solid, and offering great sensations, all combined with the comfort and interior volume that has made Excess such a success. 
The form of the hulls, the weight, the composite structure, the layout, the ergonomics, the efficiency of the sail plan, everything about this new Excess is designed around the pleasure of easy sailing and comfortable living on board.
Following several months of design and rewarding exchanges with the Excess team and Jean Marc Piaton, we’re taking the time to refine the design in detail and in manufacturing optimization. We can’t wait to see the boat sail!

Jean-Marc Piaton is a consultant and designer who has spent thirty years working for different brands in every sector, surrounded by specialists in every aspect of design. A profession dedicated to highlighting a particular brand’s style, expressing its personality, in every expression of each brand, from its logo to its points of sale, from uniforms to the layout of the different classes of a company’s aircraft. This is in contrast to designers, often the best-known if not the most talented, who express their own personal style. 


We heard from around thirty people who spoke to us about the brand (in-house people, dealers, owners, and charter companies, among others), and what emerged was a very positive and, above all, highly identifiable perception. This is both very rare for such a young brand, and very interesting when considering its design. Hervé Piveteau, Product Manager at Excess, had high expectations of lightness, both real and perceived, and wanted this new model to fit in well with existing models, without creating too strong a break.
