2002 Catana 581 “BLUE MOON” is returning to the market after the owner has spent 9 beautiful years with her almost all around the world.

For those rare catamaran lovers who were not introduced to this model, this Catana’s 58 has set and still is a benchmark for all modern performance cruising catamarans. Cruising at speeds between 10-14 knots under sails (she recorded 24 knots if someone needs that information), and 9-11 knots under power with extra low fuel consumption due to her efficient performance hulls makes her a dream for long-distance cruising. She is definitely one of the safest catamarans to be on in rough waters.

The hull and deck are fiberglass laminate set in vinylester resin vacuum-bagged over a Divinycell PVC foam core. The hull has an inner skin of Twaron aramid fabric laminated over the core to increase stiffness and impact resistance. The deck joint is bonded then glassed over to form a monocoque structure. The only solid laminate is in areas where hardware is mounted. All furniture components and floor sections are also cored with Divinycell foam; the internal bulkheads21 in allare laid up with Nida-Core honeycomb coring.

She is a 3 cabin owner’s version with a starboard hull dedicated to the owner’s private space and an additional skipper’s cabin in the starboard hull with fore part access.

She comes completely turn-key ready and is currently cruising in Greece. Contact us for her exact location if you’d like to visit her.

She comes with a major refit and is fully kitted with an enormous list of brand new equipment.
