Sail-World.com : New catamaran - sailing comfortably at 20 knots
New catamaran - sailing comfortably at 20 knots


'Catana 42 - sailing downwind comfortably at 20 knots, upwind at 12 knots. Now THAT’s how to avoid a weather system!'    .

How would you like to cross oceans, under sail, in comfort, and at around 20 knots? There's a new catamaran being introduced to the market in Australia which can do just that, but to see it first you'll have to make your way to Queensland's Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show.

Yes, after astonishing Europeans with her remarkably fast sea trials, the Catana 42 is set to impress Australian multihull enthusiasts at the 2013 Sanctuary Cove Boat Show from 23-26 May.

Multihull Solutions will be displaying the new demonstrator model that will be fully optioned and ready to turn heads with her contemporary steel grey exterior.

The Catana 42 demo includes performance hydranet sails, bowsprit with gennaker, carbon bimini, textile lifelines, solar panels, Garmin electronic pack, LED lights, and Alcantara interior.

The Catana 42 recorded nearly 22 knots during recent European sea trials, and the fiery catamaran is demanding attention from buyers, media and industry experts alike with its ability to harness the slightest gust and deliver fast and outstanding offshore performances.

How come she is so fast? The Catana 42 sails at incredible speeds due to the comprehensive range of technical innovations. The catamaran’s unique beam/length ratio, adjustable daggerboards, tilted and tulip-shaped bows, aerodynamic coach-roof and torpedo-shaped hulls make the Catana 42 a revolution in the marine industry.

At the cutting edge of recreational boatbuilding, the carbon infusion process ensures that she is an incredibly high-performance, light and resistant boat,. At 20 knots before the wind, and 12 knots into the wind, the Catana 42 offers its crew an unrivalled level of comfort and safety for a boat of this size.

Inside she's good too. Like all catamarans, the Catana 42 has an ambient and spacious interior, and she also has 360° panoramic views from big windows. With direct access to the cockpit, its saloon is the hub of the boat and is equipped wit plenty of storage space. The light-filled cabins, excellent ventilation, contemporary interior design, thermal and audio insulation, all come together well.

Multihull Solutions is the exclusive importer and distributor of Catana in Australia and New Zealand. Further information or inspections of the Catana 42 at the Sanctuary Cove Boat Show can be arranged by emailing Rachel@multihullsolutions.com.au, contacting 1300 855 338, or visiting the website at www.multihullsolutions.com.au.
