The new high performance Catana 47 has been launched to international acclaim and will soon be turning heads in Australia, launching at the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show, 24-27 May.

This new model sets new standards in comfort, safety, quality and performance which are hallmarks across all their range and responsible for creating Catana’s impeccable reputation.

Replacing the legendary Catana 471, the new Catana features astonishing performance and an innovative design, and has been hailed as the perfect vessel for extended passages or world cruising.

This new model is almost 700kg lighter than its predecessor with carbon fibre used as standard for the main partitions, roof and numerous structural supports.

The Catana 47 provides exhilarating sailing with the power to maintain high average speeds over long distances. Timed at almost 25 knots during its initial trials, the catamaran is exceptionally fast, light, robust and remarkably easy to handle, giving both helmsman and guests an unforgettable experience.

The Catana team set out to create the perfect alliance of fluidity and large living volumes, evident in the generous cockpit with its excellent shelter and ergonomic helmstation.

The interior design by Linea Concept exudes a warm and inviting ambience with wengue floors and clear panelling.

With its three cabins, in the owner’s version, the Catana 47 can easily accommodate up to six people on a long voyage. Its well designed, spacious interior offers an excellent standard of comfort for a round-the-world trip, whether you sailing single-handed or with a partner.

Another key benefit of the Catana 47 is the generous headroom under the nacelle, making it comfortable at high speed regardless of the sea conditions. This contributes to the boat’s unique static and dynamic stability, making it easy for the helmsman to control the sails even in high winds.

Its legendary ease of use in all weathers is combined with straightforward maintenance and simple resale, for complete peace of mind.

The Catana 47 is not just robust in all kinds of conditions but also extremely easy to manoeuvre. The instruments are all located in the cockpit, with the toerails, lifelines and handrails designed for easy, unrestricted movement and to avoid an awkward stumble in heavy weather or when sailing single-handed.

Tacking, reefing and handling the daggerboards are much easier as a result, particularly with the help of electric winches. Crossing the ocean is plain sailing – even on a solo voyage.

The first Catana 47 will arrive in Australia in March and will be on display at the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show from 24-27 May and the Sydney International Boat Show from 2-6 August.

Its Sydney-based owners plain to race and cruise in local waters before venturing off to explore the Pacific island.

The new owner is a keen dinghy sailor and appreciates high performance in a multihull, which directed his purchase of the Catana 47.

The Catana 47 is priced from AUD$995,000 (sail away) with fully optioned models available from AUD$1.2M.
