Catana catamarans offer more than just speed.
Few catamaran builders can match Catana’s cruising boat designs that simultaneously deliver innovation, speed, and luxury without compromising seafaring characteristics.
But with each new model, Catana brings together the three elements it holds dear: Performance, Safety and ultimate Comfort. This objective is evident in the unique boats that Catana brings to cruising.
Its pedigree speaks for itself. Catana has built more than 650 models over the last 30+ years.
Catana catamarans are built using foam-sandwich vacuum-infusion technology combined with carbon and aramid fiber (high-performance Twaron Impact) assembled using vinylester and polyester resins. A combination which guarantees rigidity and strength of the structures, significant weight savings, and because of this fact, higher speed.
Every model in the Catana range, from 42 to 70’ is designed in close collaboration with its future owner. This approach to “semi-custom” design enables us to offer to clients, fittings, décor, and equipment to suit their own specifications. To produce a boat which corresponds to their individual requirements. Because every Catana is unique.
Good bridge-deck clearance and high freeboard for comfort and safety, inverted bows to improve performance while reducing loadings, curved foil-type daggerboards to help avoid the risk of “tripping up” and to optimize the pointing angle, “crash boxes” forward and aft to make the boat unsinkable,… because a Catana is, quite simply, a Catana.
In order to offer such performance with this level of comfort and features, Catana has called on the major equipment suppliers for the technical aspects, and component manufacturers for the interior finish. All so that the best of their products is combined with Catana know-how.
Performance, safety, longevity, innovation, finish, attention to detail – these are the principal characteristics of a CATANA.
The Catana Group has two production sites in France, at Canet-en-Roussillon and at Marans in the Charente-Maritime. This enables the Catana yard to control every stage of the build of its models. From research and development, to building and finishing, to delivery and hand-over. All “made in France”!
