The XCS 12 Is For Sale In South Florida + California.

The sight of an Excess 12 catamaran at full speed ahead with unique lines, open-air layout, and sporty gray and orange sails is simply seductive. And it’s not just us who think so, it won “Catamaran Of The Year 2020” by Cruising World and was honored with “Multihull of The Year 2020” by Multihulls World Magazine. There’s no denying that the XCS 12 is a breath of fresh air to the sailing world of catamarans.


If you’re looking for your next socially distanced escape, the Excess 12 is the perfect boat to sail around Catalina or the Caribbean. We’re highlighting the top 5 reasons to buy an Excess 12 and how it will exceed your expectations. This one-of-a-kind catamaran is for sale in South Florida and California.

1. Work With A Blank Canvas

While new boats come well equipped with an extensive list of factory options, customizing a new yacht to suit your preference is part of the fun. You can choose among interior wood choices, decor, entertainment, dishware, and storage options. It just depends on how you want to optimize your new boat.

A new Excess 12 is your blank canvas. It comes with options for the layout to accommodate exactly how you’ll use the catamaran. Got a big family? The 4 cabin, 2 head version seamlessly converts the office space into a double berth. A 3 cabin, 2 head layout is perfect for a couple who loves to invite friends onboard for extended sailing trips. The flexibility in working with a blank canvas lets you create your perfect Excess 12 catamaran.

2. Professional Orientation And Support

The Excess 12 is an adventurous purchase, but the beauty of this catamaran is that it’s fun and easy to sail. This catamaran offers plenty of sensations to create a more seaman-like concept that brings you closer to the sea. The XCS 12 has a generous sail plan — a self-tacking jib makes it easy for single-handed sailing, twin helms provide excellent visibility, and electric winches are conveniently placed on either side of the boat.

As a new or veteran boat owner, you’ll receive comprehensive technical and operational training when you purchase a new Excess 12. Denison will explain how to keep your boat running smoothly from stem to stern. We also include on-the-water instruction with an expert captain to quickly build your confidence and accelerate enjoyment on the water. After your new boat is delivered, Denison’s factory-trained technical team is available to provide assistance when you need it.

3. Trade-In And Trade-Up

Beneteau designed a catamaran that combines performance and comfort. A notable feature on the Excess 12, and the entire Excess range, is the convertible coachroof. There’s no other catamaran designed with an optional retractable sunroof over the cockpit. Pulling the roof forward not only allows ample light to shine over the cockpit, but it also allows the captain to see the mainsail and know what’s going on with the sail trim.

If that sounds more appealing than your current boat’s design, Denison has a no-hassle trade-in program to help you purchase a new boat. We’ll help you receive the highest value for your current yacht towards the price of the new Excess 12. It’s not as complicated as you may think — we’ll handle the nitty-gritty details so you can plan your next cruise around The Bahamas.

4. Easy To Purchase

Denison recently sold an Excess 12 to first-time boat owners in San Diego, California. We helped them navigate the process of buying a new boat and set them up with a five day ASA catamaran course with West Coast Multihulls. While Denison makes buying a boat accessible for everyone, the overall process of buying a new yacht is easier than buying a used yacht. There are no surveys, haulouts, or engine inspections to complicate the process.

On top of that, Denison’s new boat brands come with a 3-year manufacturer’s warranty to ensure peace of mind and reduced maintenance expenses. That includes Excess catamarans. Buying a new boat with warranty protection and local service means you can confidently pay and sail away.

5. Welcome To The Family

Twin helms aft, retractable sunroof, and flexible layout are just a few of the key features that make the XCS 12 stand out among a sea of ordinary catamarans. Beneteau thought of every last detail to ensure that you fully enjoy the experience onboard. When you purchase a new boat through Denison, you become part of our family. As one of the largest new boat dealerships in the United States, we buy in volume and pass the savings along to you. We’re excited to help your family enjoy treasured memories on the water.
