Catana - The Catana 59 is selling well, thank you!

Sea trial with the new Catana 59:
The new Catana 59 caused a stir of interest amongst professional journalists. As follows; please find the the results of our latest sea trial: 

  • Angle : 60° / Real wind speed : 22 knots / Catana 59 speed : 16 knots
  • Angle : 70° / Real wind speed : 25 knots / Catana 59 speed : 20,4 knots

Curved daggerboards
 

For the development of the new Catana 59, 70 and 53 the shipyard worked out a curved profile of daggerboards. Teir hydrofoil effect provides t the boat better stability and due to lesser surface in the water the performance of the boat improves considerably. The handling of the daggerboards is a real success as their handling is astonishingly easy. 

New models 

The last moulds of the Catana 70, big sister of the Catana 59 are finished now and the shipyard started the moulding of the Catana 53.

Having diploma CAP for carpentry, Ruddy worked during two years for the group Decospan a company manufacturing wood veneer based products. In 2006 he started an internship in the shipyard Catana assembling furniture into the boats. Today Ruddy is head of the department carpentry where all luxury furniture for the Catana catamarans is manufactured. For reasons of weight-saving, many parts of the furniture are made in sandwich-foam. As  Ruddy says: “We convert ordinary things into extraordinary items. It’s a dream".
