Catan47. New construction with carbon fiber is supposed to save weight and strengthen the structure
The Kats from Catan can bridge the gap from a pure cruising boat to a powerful and sporty two-hull. Now the shipyard wants to focus even more intensely on ThemPerformance and is now laminating all structurally more heavily stressed areas such as cabin superstructures, bulkheads and sword boxes in carbon fiber composite. The vacuum infusion process is also used to build all parts of the ship. Up to now, Catan has only offered this complex construction as an option. All cats in the Catana series (42 to 65 feet) are now manufactured using this process as standard. Despite the complex and cost-intensive construction, Catandie wants to keep the price for all yachts at the previous level.
Clear to see. The ship swims higher than the waterline suggests. The new design saves 700 kilograms in weight
This makes the structural connections more solid and allows significant weight savings. For the Catan47, for example, a weight reduction of around 700 kilograms is calculated, with a total weight of around 10 tons. A current video of the Catan47 Carbon Infusion at a speed of 19.6 knots shows what this makes in terms of performance.
More angular shapes, long window areas in the hull and negative bow stem. The new look from Catan is more striking, more eye-catching
At the same time, the shipyard is also introducing a completely new type: The Catan59 is to complement the existing range in the upper segment. For the first time, the in-house design team designed a ship completely independently. So far Christophe Barreau has drawn for the French. The special features of the new cat are the negative bow stems of the hulls and the sickled leeboards, which are supposed to provide additional buoyancy at high speeds.
Generous and airy. The areas of life inside and outside merge into one
The price is impressive: The new 17.90 meter long and almost 10 meter wide luxury cat from Catan will cost around 1.42 million euros. The prototype is now under construction. In the summer of 2011 he is supposed to swim.
