|"Skye" the uber stylish 2013 Catana 42 Carbon Infusion sailing catamaran which has been fully optioned and only lightly cruised by her current owners. She is now on the market and ready for her new owners to take over.
This Catana 42 displays the true essence of Catana: all the exclusive, technical innovations of the brand in an outstanding blue water passage maker.
With her ideal beam to length ratio, adjustable daggerboards, tulip-shaped - outward facing bows, aerodynamic coach-roof and torpedo-shaped hulls, the Catana 42 makes waves wherever she goes.
The cutting edge of recreational sailing construction, the infusion process and the use of carbon are now standard on all models. Powerful, hard wearing, yet light, the Catana 42 is a high-performance boat which reaches speeds of 20 knots before the wind and no fewer than 8 knots close-hauled, ensuring its passengers an unbeatable level of safety and comfort.
The Catana 42 continues to garner international acclaim with the catamaran being recognised in the prestigious US Cruising World Boat of the Year awards.
The speedy multihull won the "Best Midsize Multihull under 50 Feet" category against strong competition.
Awards judge Mark Scrader said the Catana 42's design appealed to those who like to push the limits of multihull sailing while still enjoying excellent on-board comfort. "I found the steering, the hardware and the metalwork all to be excellent. The target demographic here is 'real' sailors'. And this boat sails very well, " Mark said.
Fellow judge Ed Sherman was particularly impressed by the Catana 42's helm station. "It's got a different helm situation than virtually all of the other multihulls that we tested, in that they're located well aft and outboard. I found it to be a comfortable location, " Ed said.
"It's allowed them to do some interesting things with the way the canopy over the cockpit area is set up. It's elevated and has an opening with a view forward. Add that to the panoramic view from either wheel, to port or starboard, and you have very good visibility, " he said.
Awards judge Tim Murphy said the Catana 42's construction was also a major factor in the boats success. "Catana has also evolved with their construction techniques and are building boats using the SCRIMP process, " said Tim.
"They're putting carbon into the structural components of the hull which is also relatively new. And they're using foam-cored furniture. So they're really paying attention to weight throughout this boat", he said.
"Long term, I think that the SCRIMP hull construction technique is going to enhance the value of the boat, and that's important. "
