sy Umnyama, our Catana 42 carbon infused performance cruising Catamaran is for sale. She was built in France in 2016 and since then, we – a Dutch couple of 60+ – sailed around the world in 5 years. Last year we were stranded in Covidfree St Helena, stayed there two months and then sailed 4000 NM to Grenada. There Umnyama was on the hard during the hurricane season. After another season in the Caribbean we sailed via the Bahamas to the US. Umnyama is now winterized on the hard at Safe Harbor New England Boatworks in Portsmouth RHode Island for maintenance and some repairs.

UMNYAMA is an Owners Version, and is ready to sail around the world again with all the amenities you need: generator, watermaker, double autopilot, big solar panels, washing machine, gennaker, Parasailor, all Raymarine electronics, Iridium antenna, radar, AIS, WiFi router, Fusion marine entertainment, super dinghy, et cetera…

We sailed the boat conservatively, often with only head sails – sailing around the world is mainly downwind – with boats peeds of max 15 knots and with max windspeeds of less than 40 knots. But with less than 670 liters of water and 430 liters of diesel, and with less than all the junk we carry, you might go faster indeed…


Since you are interested in a Catana 42, you will already know all the details of this fast performance catamaran. If not, this is – cut and paste – what Catana writes:

The cutting edge of recreational sailing construction, the infusion process and the use of carbon are now standard on all models. Powerful, hardwearing, 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.

Leave the port and set sail for the open sea. Every single detail has been carefully designed to allow you to enjoy the incredible thrill of high speed at sea in complete safety, whether you are making a short trip to a little island nearby, or crossing the world’s greatest oceans.

The Catana 42 truly is the ultimate experience of speed and comfort. Inside, it has an incredibly spacious interior with a 360° panoramic view. With direct access to the cockpit, its salon, fitted with generous storage space, is the living hub of the boat.

Quality materials, light-filled cabins, perfect ventilation, excellent bathroom design, thermal and audio insulation come together to make life on board easier and more comfortable. Now you can sail through high-speed journeys and stormy seas, effortlessly.

The ease of movement and the extreme smoothness of the steering system are also there to help you easily maintain the speed of your Catana 42, in all weathers.

The shape of the floaters and the option of lifting the daggerboards in heavy weather give your Catana 42 a much higher standard of safety than other catamarans.

With its original daggerboard system, your Catana 42 is also capable of tacking at a good speed, sailing on course in the roughest seas and reaching the closest port when a storm is approaching.

The Catana 42 is the only boat of its size that can maintain high average speeds, whatever the points of sail or weather conditions.

The Catana 42 displays the true essence of Catana: all the exclusive, technical innovations of the brand in an outstanding catamaran measuring 12.58 metres in length. The owner of this catamaran, will truly benefit from the exceptional Catana know-how.
