S/V Thundercat is a 1980 Catalac 9M catamaran for sale by owner located in the Netherlands.  Easy to handle, stable and safe enough for families, this cruising catamaran is fantastic for coastal sailing, and its shallow draft means it can go where most sailboats cannot venture.

The Catalac 9M is not only fun to sail, they are probably the safest cruising catamarans afloat. Catalacs, with over 600 boats built, have never had a catamaran capsize. Designed to sail the North Sea, Catalac catamarans feature extra thick fiberglass hulls that were built to last.

With sleeping accommodation for up to 7 in four separate areas, the boat features an extraordinary amount of living space, a massive cockpit and seemingly endless storage. The galley, with 2m headroom, is well-equipped, light and airy.

Twin fuel-efficient Yanmar 18hp engines make this 9m catamaran easy to manoever when docking — and with a modest 4.2m beam the boat will fit into a monohull moorage.

Sails and rigging are in good shape. New antifouling in the spring of 2022.  “Thundercat” is clean, well-maintained, and ready to sail.  If you are looking for an exceedingly affordable catamaran with simple systems that is fun to sail, with an exceptional interior layout and a massive cockpit then look no further.
