The Havana 38 Express Powercat is certified by the CE as a “Category A” design.
Here is an explanation of what it means:
Category A: This craft is designed to operate in winds that may exceed wind force 8 (Beaufort scale) and in significant wave heights of 4m and above (see Note 1 below), and is largely self-sufficient. Abnormal conditions such as hurricanes are excluded. Such conditions may be encountered on extended voyages, for example across oceans, or inshore when unsheltered from the wind and waves for several hundred nautical miles.
NOTE 1: The significant wave height is the mean height of the highest one-third of the waves, which approximately corresponds to the wave height estimated by an experienced observer. Some waves will be double this height.
