About this Excess 12


‘As new’ 2021-launched Excess 12. MAMMA MIA is a fully-optioned example of the Multihull Of The Year 2020 winning Excess 12 catamaran.


Launched in 2021, MAMMA MIA is an ‘as new’ example of the fantastic new Excess 12 cruising catamaran from Groupe Beneteau. Her specification highlights include:-

• 4-cabin, 2-heads layout

• Performance ‘Pulse’ sailing option with tri-radial laminate sails and square-top mainsail

• Code Zero

• Raymarine navigation equipment

• Upgraded 45 hp engine option

• Large solar panels

• Chain counter for windlass

• Fusion interior and waterproof speakers

• Tender Outboard engine


The Excess 12 adopts a marked chine and a pronounced deck sheer, creating unique lines. Her twin helm stations, located aft, offer a maximum of sensations and create a more seamanlike concept that brings us closer to the sea. The light and precise helm and the opening bimini are reminiscent of the pleasures of helming a monohull.

The cockpit of this boat is bathed in light thanks to its opening roof. On the outside there is the usual trampoline between the hulls, great for sunbathing, as well as the large exterior table. The hulls have a large volume with the option of a three double cabin or four double cabin version.

With her completely new lines for the coachroof, a short nacelle and the taller Pulse Line rig, the Excess 12 brings a breath of fresh air to the world of cruising catamarans.


A world where catamarans are as much fun to live on as they are to sail. An elegant look, amazing colors and sophisticated lines all combine in a catamaran that’s simply a pleasure to sail. This is what today’s new sailors are asking for. Excess is for them.

The increased sail area of Excess catamarans, the mast set forward of the coachroof or the twin aft helms that allow you to sail with direct connection to the rudders. As for the volumes on board, they are designed for a lifestyle inspired by the oceans.

Architectural choices signed by VPLP Design, specialists in ocean racing. A perfect combination for living the sea; and living at sea in all simplicity.

Everything has been carefully designed to meet the expectations of generations who want a modern, lively, aesthetic boat, adapted to the new ways of thinking about life on the water, a sailboat in phase with their lifestyle.


Groupe Beneteau, builder of Lagoon catamarans, has introduced a new multihull line called Excess. The first of the boats to reach U.S. shores at the Annapolis boat show was the Excess 12, a 38ft 6in design based on the popular Lagoon 40. The thought process behind this new boat was driven by customer feedback, with an eye toward creating a light, open cat that connects the crew more directly with the sailing experience. According to Beneteau, the target market for this sporty-looking design includes monohull sailors in search of something new and multihull aficionados looking for the wind-in-your-hair experience that makes them feel more “at one” with whatever boat they’re on.

Construction of the Excess is much like that of the Lagoon, with vacuum-infusion and balsa coring in both the deck and hull above the waterline. Built in three sections, the Excess 12 has the same bridge deck and inner-hull design under the waterline as the Lagoon 40. However, the outer hull sections were reshaped by the specialists at VPLP to include two new chines that create more interior volume and a slightly different aesthetic overall. To enhance performance, literally a ton of weight was taken out of the boat relative to the Lagoon 40, most of it in interior furnishings.

The differences aboard the new Excess are immediately visible from the dock, primarily because of the twin helm stations aft on each hull and the fact that there’s no flybridge. The starboard helm has a Raymarine MFD and engine controls. The port helm has wind instruments and an attachment for a tablet, which acts as a repeater. An option I would certainly consider is adding engine controls to both sides. They’re well integrated into the outboard hull sides at hip level where you can reach them without taking your eyes off the bows when docking.

A double seat for the driver and a companion is located at each helm and each is designed to fold up and tuck away to provide clear access to the aft steps and swim platforms. An often-heard complaint with this kind of outboard layout is that it leaves the person at the helm exposed to the elements. However, Excess has come up with a fairly elegant solution in the form of a bimini structure that wraps in from outboard to provide a sunshade above. It’s the least intrusive solution I’ve seen in this kind of configuration, and it works.

Another contentious issue with having twin helms aft is visibility, and while many of the designers of such models will claim you can see the opposite bow through the saloon, I’ve found that claim to be somewhat dubious, at best. That said, aboard the Excess 12 the design team appears to have truly dialed it in, and you can actually see all the way down to the tips of both bows. Excess has even gone so far as to make all the windows with clear rather than tinted glass, allowing you to see through equally well at night.

Throughout the interior, the French builder has focused on streamlining the interior wood structures and in so doing has done away with various bits of cabinetry hardware, including drawer pulls. The effect is a smoother and lighter interior that still does all you need it to.

The Excess 12 is offered in two versions: Standard and Pulse. The latter is the souped-up iteration with a 3ft-taller mast and an additional 54 sq. ft of sail. The mast in both configurations is positioned well aft to make the main smaller and easier to handle for shorthanded crews. Both versions also have a self-tacking jib and square top main. Another performance advantage to the Pulse line is its gray tri-radial laminate Incidence sails, which is how the boat for our test sail on the Chesapeake was outfitted. A sprit is optional and serves as the attachment point for a Code 0, which on the Pulse line is 86 sq.ft larger than on the standard version of the boat. It’s a versatile sailplan, easily managed by a cruising couple.
