Catana 42



C42 30th Anniversary Edition :
A CATANA commitment

■ Truly in the spirit of Catana, the C42 brings together all the exclusive technical innovations in an exceptional 12.6 metre catamaran.  A unique length to beam ratio, lifting daggerboards which allow the boat to plane downwind, and inclined, tulip-shaped bulbous bows, will all become quickly apparent, as much at sea as in port.

At the forefront of semi-custom yacht-building, the high-performing Catana 42 is as resilient as it is light.   With speeds of up to 20 knots downwind and 12 knots upwind, the Catana C42 generates an extremely high level of comfort and safety unequalled in its class, allowing the crew to enjoy sensations previously only available to racing skippers.



Tailor-made fittings and a panoramic view from inside allows for easy movement around the boat and for exceptional sailing.  The spacious saloon and cabins are free of unwanted noise thanks to the insulation system and their height above the water.  Everything is designed to make life on board easier, and to allow everyone to enjoy the pleasures of blue water cruising.

Seen from the inside, the Catana C42 gives you an amazing sensation of space with a 360° panoramic view.  With direct access to the cockpit, the saloon really is the hub of life on board.  The quality of the materials, the brightness of the cabins, their perfect ventilation, the design of your bathroom, sound and thermal insulation, ...  everything is designed to make your life on board easier and more comfortable, allowing you to live effortlessly on long passages at high speed or even on choppy crossings.

At the helm, the bridgedeck clearance and the length of the hulls give the C42 remarkable stability on the water.  The ease of handling and the smoothness of the helm allow you to maintain speed easily in all conditions.
The tulip-shaped bows and the option of raising the daggerboards in heavier weather give your Catana C42 a greater level of safety than other catamarans.  With the daggerboards lowered, it is just as able to point upwind at good speeds, keeping on course in difficult seas to get you to the nearest port if a storm is approaching.
