With an ocean-proven pedigree, this design was the basis for the French Catana 43 except her single elevated steering station is forward in the cockpit and totally weather protected with excellent 360-degree visibility. She features an enclosable hardtop and there is seamless entry into the cockpit from her sterns. Easily sailed shorthanded, designed for extended liveaboard and with the performance to race competitively if desired. Professionally built by Bakercraft in Freemantle, one of the best specialist Crowther catamaran builders in Australia. Galley up with panoramic vision through toughened glass windows and spacious saloon, four generous cabins, two bathrooms fully equipped for extended cruising. In 2020 she underwent a refit with most electronics and all instruments replaced, two new Yanmar Diesel engines and saildrives installed and a full external repaint.
