Alibi 54 is a 57 ′ 1 ″ / 17.4 m catamaran sailboat designed by Loc Goepfert and built by Alibi Catamarans starting in 2013.

Rig and Sails

Auxilary power, accomodations, calculations.

The theoretical maximum speed that a displacement hull can move efficiently through the water is determined by it's waterline length and displacement. It may be unable to reach this speed if the boat is underpowered or heavily loaded, though it may exceed this speed given enough power. Read more.

Classic hull speed formula:

Hull Speed = 1.34 x √LWL

Max Speed/Length ratio = 8.26 ÷ Displacement/Length ratio .311 Hull Speed = Max Speed/Length ratio x √LWL

Sail Area / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the power of the sails relative to the weight of the boat. The higher the number, the higher the performance, but the harder the boat will be to handle. This ratio is a "non-dimensional" value that facilitates comparisons between boats of different types and sizes. Read more.

SA/D = SA ÷ (D ÷ 64) 2/3

  • SA : Sail area in square feet, derived by adding the mainsail area to 100% of the foretriangle area (the lateral area above the deck between the mast and the forestay).
  • D : Displacement in pounds.

Ballast / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the stability of a boat's hull that suggests how well a monohull will stand up to its sails. The ballast displacement ratio indicates how much of the weight of a boat is placed for maximum stability against capsizing and is an indicator of stiffness and resistance to capsize.

Ballast / Displacement * 100

Displacement / Length Ratio

A measure of the weight of the boat relative to it's length at the waterline. The higher a boat’s D/L ratio, the more easily it will carry a load and the more comfortable its motion will be. The lower a boat's ratio is, the less power it takes to drive the boat to its nominal hull speed or beyond. Read more.

D/L = (D ÷ 2240) ÷ (0.01 x LWL)³

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds.
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet

Comfort Ratio

This ratio assess how quickly and abruptly a boat’s hull reacts to waves in a significant seaway, these being the elements of a boat’s motion most likely to cause seasickness. Read more.

Comfort ratio = D ÷ (.65 x (.7 LWL + .3 LOA) x Beam 1.33 )

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
  • LOA: Length overall in feet
  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet

Capsize Screening Formula

This formula attempts to indicate whether a given boat might be too wide and light to readily right itself after being overturned in extreme conditions. Read more.

CSV = Beam ÷ ³√(D / 64)

Hull Length 16.40m/53.8’ Waterline beam 1.03 m Beam on centerline 6.92 m Deadweight (max.) 13.8 T Righting moment (min.) 35 T.m Righting moment (max.) 47 T.m Righting moment @ 1° 6 T.m

Foils Mast 22.5 m Daggerboard 2.8 m

Carbon mast and boom

Sails: Main sail 112 m²/1206 sq.ft. Jib 43 m²/463 sq.ft. Code 0 85 m²/915 sq.ft. Spinnaker 238 m² Downwind SA: 350 m²

Alibi 55 Mach 2.0 Special Edition

Introducing Alibi 55.5 Hull#09 - the most refined and distinguished of all its sisterships. This performance catamaran is capable of sailing at windspeed, with square top full batten mainsail, self-tending solent, code 0, and top down furling or sock asymmetrical spinnaker options available. The exterior is built with grace and strength, and the interior with form and function - offering 3+1 or 4 cabin layouts and numerous storage options throughout the boat. Constructed with E-glass hulls and high-grade PVC foam with epoxy resin, and numerous carbon parts for reinforcement, this boat is designed for reliability, without compromising on performance or comfort. In addition, its long ocean capable beam to length ratio make it a perfect cruising catamaran for extended trips away from home.

About this Alibi 55 Mach 2.0 Special Edition

Introducing Alibi 55.5 Hull#09. Available now for the first time and with delivery worldwide in early 2024. Hull #09 of the venerable Alibi 54 line is a pleasant surprise to today’s long term delivery schedules of performance catamarans. This is a brand-new boat complete with all pertinent warranties. Please watch the video for full details.

Performance catamaran aficionados will be familiar with the Alibi 54. For those learning of the brand for the first time here is a brief synopsis. From 2009 to 2018 (7) Alibi 54’s were constructed for discerning owners worldwide. Each differed ever-so-slightly from the previous depending on individual owner’s requirements. In 2017 the previous ownership went out of business. In 2021, the new owner, who is in the High-End Asian Adventure Tourism

Industry, has assembled a world class team. This includes a production manager who previously built hull number 08 for a discerning European family who have both regatta and cruising programs. Hull number 09 (now 55.5') utilizes and has the benefit of top-flight internationally acclaimed designers, engineers, and production management. “09” is about 3⁄4 of the way completed and is financed as an internal project with all timelines and goals being met. As an owner’s choice, several items remain available before expected sea trials early 2024 if requested reasonably soon. A suggested owner option sheet will be forthcoming.

Alibi Hull 09 ticks all the right boxes for an owner desiring a quick and comfortable, well built, daggerboard catamaran. The deck, sub-structure, reinforcements, mast, boom, longeron, crossbeam, and martingale are all constructed in carbon fiber. The hulls are sandwich construction of hi-tech PVC foam and E-glass with epoxy resin. This boat is being built to CE and ISO compatibility and standards. With the e-glass hulls, the boat fits into most catamaran broader insurance programs. Overall estimated weight is 13,400kg making this boat quick and responsive. This is a conservative estimate pending final lightship weight.

Extended cruising on a performance catamaran begs for certain features and amenities. Regatta racing demands certain capabilities. Combining the two exists only in a certain playing field. The Alibi 54 is one of those players.

Features and amenities people are looking for are:

1) Good visibility in a variety of conditions and this is accomplished by a low-profile easy to see over house, raised helms with articulating wheels with side deck and behind the wheel seating.

2) Comfortable external seating such as perch seats forward, bridge deck seating, comfortable cockpit lounges, and large swim platforms.

3) Features for everyday liveaboard including great ventilation, open and airy living spaces, abundance of light and lighting.

4) Storage for each crew and all their activities.

5) Inside and outside food preparation including transom fish and food prep work tables. 6) Room for folding bicycles, paddleboards, scuba gear and more.

Alibi 5409 has these.

Regarding the demanding performance sailor:

1. Outboard asymmetric canted daggerboards.

2. Daggerboards controlled by aft mounted line drivers (with ability to quickly convert to manual operation if needed.

3. Lines led aft for short-handed sailing.

4. Ability to fly a variety of hi-tech sails in a multitude of conditions with a low center of gravity sail plan.

Gear and capability aside, one of the most important qualities will be reliability. Alibi 5409 achieves this through careful selection of industry known, ocean tested equipment and the appropriate implementation of that equipment. Just because a certain new technology makes its way on the scene does not necessarily mean it should be deployed. A balance of 21stcentury tech and simplicity increase the fun to servicing ratio. Wisdom is gained from previous experience and legacy builds. As interesting as they were, dependability of clever yet exotic systems, such as the retracting props, cassette rudders, movable ballast system have been removed for reliability and simplicity on “09”. In lieu of complex propulsion systems the Yanmar 4JH 57HP was chosen for its renown reliability, ease of service and support, and excellent reputation. The dinghy or tender is now located on davits aft for immediate secured deployment. The interior has been tweaked as per owners’ input. The salon and galley optimized for liveaboard. The cockpit design gains from miles and miles underway and months aboard. The transoms on “09” are now slightly extended and the rewards come both in both additional room and added performance.

DESIGN SYNOPSIS & CONSTRUCTION

The Alibi 55.5 Mach 2.0 sports graceful feminine curves in appearance and masculine strength and purpose with its performance. Fast, sporty, and a sailor’s catamaran Alibi 5409 is the most refined of its sisterships. This wind-speed capable performance catamaran has a pleasant proportional look and feel to the design.

The interior combines form and function. A 3+1 or 4-cabin layout allows for owner, VIP guest, kids, and crew quarters. The owner’s cabin is spacious with appropriate storage and privacy. The guest cabin features the same size berth as the owner’s cabin (a queen) and also features ample storage.

Alibi catamarans in liquidation

Catamaran Alibi 57

The Alibi Catamaran yard has been placed in judicial liquidation. An economic necessity that does not exclude the construction of new boats in the future.

Briag Merlet

The Thai shipyard put into liquidation

According to several sources close to the case, the Alibi catamaran yard has been placed in judicial liquidation. Contacted by BoatIndustry for confirmation, the site manager did not respond to our requests. The company, which was building top-of-the-range sailing yachts in Thailand, was facing major difficulties. In the absence of a boat order this year, Alibi Catamarans had to stop its activity.

Alibi Catamarans was created in 2007 by Loïc Goepfert, naval architect and engineer with a background in ocean racing, both in navigation and in the design office . Its objective was to build custom catamarans that were ultra-efficient and aesthetically pleasing. In 2008, he set up his shipyard in Bangkok to build the first sailboats.

Logistical and technical difficulties

Efforts had been made in recent months to improve the yard's profitability, in particular by opening a base at Le Canet en Roussillon to finish the boats in France and avoid the additional costs associated with transporting the numerous deck fittings from Europe. Alibi took over the premises of the former XL Catamarans shipyard in February 2017, which were only 5 years old. Loic Goepfert, who met him at the Grande Motte 2017 multihull show, illustrated the situation with the rigging . "We had to import the mast in 3 parts and for insurance reasons, Lorima's technicians had to come to Thailand for assembly. It didn't make sense anymore!"

Other innovative options, such as the annex under the front platform, were difficult to develop and very costly for the site.

Know-how on standby

Staff from the Thai shipyard were transferred to a friendly company that manufactures composite parts for industry and boating. All of Alibi's skills remain operational for the possible construction of a future catamaran.

MOSCOW, Idaho (AP) — Bryan Kohberger, the man charged in the deaths of four University of Idaho students in late 2022, was out for a drive the night they were killed, his attorneys said in a new court filing that lays out more details of the alibi defense he intends to use at his trial.

Ethan Chapin, Xana Kernodle, Madison Mogen and Kaylee Goncalves were stabbed to death at a rental home near the university campus in Moscow, Idaho, early on Nov. 13, 2022.

Kohberger, who was then a criminal justice student at Washington State University in nearby Pullman, Washington, has been charged with four counts of murder. Prosecutors say they will seek the death penalty if he is convicted.

Authorities have said that cellphone data or surveillance video shows that Kohberger visited the victims’ neighborhood at least a dozen times before the killings; that he traveled in the region that night, returning to Pullman along a roundabout route; and that his DNA was found at the crime scene.

His phone, however, was not communicating with his cellphone provider during about a two-hour period when the attacks occurred — consistent with him having turned it off to avoid being placed at the murder scene, police said.

Anne Taylor, Kohberger’s public defender, wrote in a court filing late Wednesday that Kohberger was an avid runner and hiker who frequently went out for drives late at night.

Under Idaho law, defendants may be required to notify prosecutors in advance of any alibi defense. In a filing last August, Taylor wrote that Kohberger’s alibi was that he was out driving alone that night, as he often did. Wednesday’s document offered more details, including at least one of his destinations — Wawawai Park, along the Snake River southwest of Pullman — in the opposite direction from Moscow.

“Mr. Kohberger was out driving in the early morning hours of November 13, 2022; as he often did to hike and run and/or see the moon and stars,” Taylor wrote. “He drove throughout the area south of Pullman, Washington, west of Moscow, Idaho including Wawawai Park.”

The filing also detailed that the defense intends to offer the testimony of an expert in cellphone and cell tower data to support the notion that Kohberger did not travel east along the main road connecting Pullman and Moscow that night, Taylor wrote.

Police arrested Kohberger, 29, more than six weeks after the killings, locating him at his parents’ home in eastern Pennsylvania, where he had gone during winter break.

No date has been set for the trial.

Missouri woman’s murder conviction tossed after 43 years. Her lawyers say a police officer did it

A judge has overturned the conviction of a Missouri woman who was a psychiatric patient when she incriminated herself in a 1980 killing that her attorneys argue was committed by a now-discredited police officer.

Judge Ryan Horsman ruled late Friday that Sandra Hemme, who has spent 43 years behind bars, had established evidence of actual innocence and must be freed within 30 days unless prosecutors retry her. He said her trial counsel was ineffective and that prosecutors failed to disclose evidence that would have helped her.

Her attorneys say this is the longest time a woman has been been incarcerated for a wrongful conviction. They filed a motion seeking her immediate release.

“We are grateful to the Court for acknowledging the grave injustice Ms. Hemme has endured for more than four decades,” her attorneys said in a statement, promising to keep up their efforts to dismiss the charges and reunite Hemme with her family.

A spokesperson for Missouri Atty. Gen. Andrew Bailey didn’t respond to a text or email message seeking comment Saturday.

Hemme was shackled in leather wrist restraints and so heavily sedated that she “could not hold her head up straight” or “articulate anything beyond monosyllabic responses” when she was first questioned about the death of 31-year-old library worker Patricia Jeschke, according to her lawyers with the New York-based Innocence Project.

They alleged in a petition seeking her exoneration that authorities ignored Hemme’s “wildly contradictory” statements and suppressed evidence implicating Michael Holman, a then-police officer who tried to use the slain woman’s credit card.

The judge wrote that “no evidence whatsoever outside of Ms. Hemme’s unreliable statements connects her to the crime.”

“In contrast,” he added, “this Court finds that the evidence directly ties Holman to this crime and murder scene.”

It started on Nov. 13, 1980, when Jeschke missed work. Her worried mother climbed through a window at her apartment and discovered her daughter’s nude body on the floor, surrounded by blood. Her hands were tied behind her back with a telephone cord, and a pair of pantyhose was wrapped around her throat. A knife was under her head.

The brutal killing grabbed headlines, with detectives working 12-hour days to solve it. But Hemme wasn’t on their radar until she showed up nearly two weeks later at the home of a nurse who once treated her, carrying a knife and refusing to leave.

Police found her in a closet and took her back to St. Joseph’s Hospital, the latest in a string of hospitalizations that began when she started hearing voices at the age of 12.

She had been discharged from the hospital the day before Jeschke’s body was found, showing up at her parents’ house later that night after hitchhiking more than 100 miles across the state.

The timing seemed suspicious to law enforcement. As the interrogations began, Hemme was being treated with antipsychotic drugs that had triggered involuntary muscle spasms. She complained that her eyes were rolling back in her head, the petition said.

Detectives noted that Hemme seemed “mentally confused” and not fully able to comprehend their questions.

“Each time the police extracted a statement from Ms. Hemme it changed dramatically from the last, often incorporating explanations of facts the police had just recently uncovered,” her attorneys wrote.

Eventually, she claimed to have watched a man named Joseph Wabski kill Jeschke.

Wabski, whom she met when they stayed in the state hospital’s detoxification unit at the same time, was charged with capital murder. But prosecutors quickly dropped the case upon learning he was at an alcohol treatment center in Topeka, Kansas, at the time.

Learning he couldn’t be the killer, Hemme cried and she said was the lone killer.

But police also were starting to look at another suspect — one of their own. About a month after the killing, Holman was arrested for falsely reporting that his pickup truck had been stolen and collecting an insurance payout. It was the same truck spotted near the crime scene, and the officer’s alibi that he spent the night with a woman at a nearby motel couldn’t be confirmed.

Furthermore, he had tried to use Jeschke’s credit card at a camera store in Kansas City, Mo., on the day her body was found. Holman, who ultimately was fired and died in 2015, said he found the card in a purse that had been discarded in a ditch.

During a search of Holman’s home, police found a pair of gold, horseshoe-shaped earrings in a closet, along with jewelry stolen from another woman during a burglary earlier that year.

Jeschke’s father said he recognized the earrings as a pair he bought for his daughter. But the four-day investigation into Holman ended abruptly. Many of the details uncovered were never given to Hemme’s attorneys.

Hemme, meanwhile, was growing desperate. She wrote to her parents on Christmas Day 1980, saying, “Even though I’m innocent, they want to put someone away, so they can say the case is solved.” She said she might as well change her plea to guilty.

“Just let it end,” she said. “I’m tired.”

The following spring, she agreed to plead guilty to capital murder in exchange for the death penalty being taken off the table.

Even that was a challenge; the judge initially rejected her guilty plea because she couldn’t share enough details about what happened, saying: “I really didn’t know I had done it until like three days later, you know, when it came out in the paper and on the news.”

Hemme’s attorney told her that her chance to avoid a death sentence was to get the judge to accept her guilty plea. After a recess and some coaching, she provided more information.

That plea later was thrown out on appeal. But she was convicted again in 1985 after a one-day trial in which jurors weren’t told of what her current attorneys describe as “grotesquely coercive” interrogations.

Larry Harman, who helped Hemme get her initial guilty plea thrown out and later became a judge, said in the petition that he believed she was innocent.

“The system,” he said, “failed her at every opportunity.”

Hollingsworth writes for the Associated Press. AP researcher Jennifer Farrar in New York contributed to this report.
