The Ocean class Catana 521 is designed to be a safe, fast ocean-crossing vessel. Designed as a performance cruiser these boats are ideal for those who are looking for more performance than a typical cruising catamaran while maintaining an excellent level of comfort and living amenities.

As with any performance boat avoiding excess weight is a key requirement and Catana introduced modern high-strength materials and advanced production techniques to achieve this goal. NIDARI has many new or upgraded features including electronics, sails, etc.

Catana catamarans are the exception to the rule, as they specialize in semi-custom boats built with input from their future owner. In addition these are high performance cruisers. Each boat is built with carbon fiber in the inner skin and the SCRIMP resin infusion process. The sandwich construction also incorporates Twaron, a fiber that is 10 times more puncture resistant than classic fiberglass at half its density.

The resulting weight savings and stiffness provided by this construction serves as the basis of Catana’s excellent performance. A combination which guarantees rigidity and strength of the structures, significant weight savings and because of this fact, higher speed. The hulls are asymmetric and canted outward. The bows are “tulip shaped” to increase reserve buoyancy and reduce pitching motion and the risk of burying a hull. Lastly, they are designed with daggerboards, which allows Catana catamarans to outpoint any other cruising catamaran brand afloat.

The deck and coachroof are fabricated from a single mold and cored with Corecell closed cell foam with a molded diamond-pattern nonskid. The helms are out on the hulls, as there’s nothing like the clear sightlines you get with an outboard helming station. Aboard a higher-performance cat, an outboard steering position also allows you see the rig easily when threading your way through the windshifts while, say, sailing to windward.

This is a fast cruiser-racer with slim, lightweight asymmetrical hulls. These lightweight cruising catamarans define the term ‘performance’. Daggerboards enhance hydrodynamic efficiency and a high bridgedeck clearance avoids wave slapping, and her top to bottom performance driven design aspects ensure excellent performance to windward.

Grenada has become one of the Caribbean’s premier yachting destinations and with over 10 years’ experience living here I can provide a brokerage service which has previously not been available in the Southern Caribbean. With great marinas and modern haul-out facilities able to handle boats up to 37ft Beam and up to 242 tons this is an ideal location to buy or sell your boat. Having bought and sold boats through the Catamaran Company, I have a unique perspective of how important choosing the right company is in making the buying or selling of your boat a great experience.
