I was looking for something that wasn't simply off the shelf. After owning a few yachts and catamarans, I wanted an entirely new, comfortable boat that was custom-made in line with my exact specifications. A sailing catamaran and a motor catamaran in one! And made of Aluminium. (More information about the advantages of Aluminium).
My preference was for smaller-scale rigging with sails that either I or my wife could handle individually, no matter what the circumstances. Oh, and I wanted two strong engines. The fuel tank capacity had to be sufficient for a Transatlantic passage, using the engines only if necessary. After a long, fruitless search at a range of different manufacturers, I finally discovered CATAMARIS.
The qualified architects in the CATAMARIS team put together a tailor-made concept according to my requirements, drew up the blueprints, and provided me with the best shipyard for my project.
I am sailing with my Parana III, the first example of the CATMAR RANGE 6, since June 2017.
CATAMARIS has built my perfect ship !
My new CATMAR Range 6 was built at a shipyard specialised in aluminium catamarans in Holland. This shipyard also constructs pilot vessels and utility catamarans for offshore wind parks. Ships that are in service 365 days each year, in all weather and sea conditions.
I am highly satisfied with the CATAMARIS team, the construction process and the high quality of the shipyard. The project management, the construction supervision and the handover by the CATAMARIS team all took place in an attentive, detailed and thorough fashion.
Catmar Range 5
Catmar Range 6
For each new CATMAR RANGE 5 and RANGE 6, the rigging, exterior design, deck, fly bridge and cockpit design, floorplan and interior design along with the engines, fuel tank capacity, air conditioning system, generators, platforms and so on are all designed according to your requirements, in consultation with our nautical and interior architects, as a unique, custom-made design.
CATMAR RANGE 5 and RANGE 6 are constructed in aluminium with a range of rigging sizes, or as a motor catamaran.
Hull number 1 is constructed in aluminium in accordance with the specifications of the building contractor and fitted with smaller-scale rigging and a powerful engine; find out more here:
CATMAR RANGE 5 and RANGE 6 are custom-made blue-water catamarans that can be constructed in any length from 53 - 57 foot (16.15-17.37m RANGE 5) and 60 - 68 foot (18.30-20.73m RANGE 6) in aluminium and as a motor-catamaran.
Our catamaran yachts can also be designed for easy wheelchair access to all areas and decks, in the dinghy and boarding to/from land (Catmar Range 6, hull number 2, see plans).
The distribution of cabins and spaces, the interior and exterior design, the deck and the fly bridge can be designed in accordance with customer requests. Using aluminium as a construction material provides more flexibility in designing a floorplan compared with GRP because transverse bulkheads are not required..
CATMAR RANGE catamarans can be reinforced for ice conditions, for travel in high or deep latitudes.
PARANA III, hull No. 1 of CATMAR RANGE 6 , is a new catamaran yacht measuring 64 ft. in length.
Parana III was successfully launched after 14 months construction period in Holland on 1 June 2017. After passing the tests with flying colours, the very happy owner and his wife actually sail Parana III on a voyage across Europe, over the Rhine, Main, Rhine-Main-Danube canal and the Danube to the Black Sea. From there, the journey will continue via the Mediterranean, Gibraltar, the Bay of Biscay and back to the shipyard in Holland, where the rigging will be completed in November 2017.
PARANA III can be viewed in Holland by appointment from November 2017.
