Catmar Explorer® 78 Power

A luxurious, spacious full custom ocean-going explorer motor catamaran for worldwide blue water cruising and circumnavigation.

The hulls, deck, deckhouse and the entire structure are made of certified aluminium. Safe, strong, reliable and robust!

The result is a stable, homogeneous and torsion-resistant structure without the annoying creaking noises that can occur with GRP constructions or mixed forms - such as hulls made of aluminium, deck and superstructure made of GRP - in rough seas.

Catamaris® is committed to environmental friendliness and sustainability. Numerous building components can be recycled and reused in an environmentally friendly way, see below.


Perfect for an owner with large space requirements.

Unlimited layout possibilities: e.g. master suite in the hull or on the flybridge, 2 or 3 guest cabins, crew cabins...

The recessed cockpit lounge on the foredeck is accessible from the outside via the walk-around decks, it can also be designed through a door from the saloon.

The yacht is built from class 5083 H 321/H111 aluminum, which is certified by "Germanischer Lloyd, Bureau Veritas or Lloyd's Register". More about the advantages of aluminium.

Our Explorer catamarans are equipped with bow reinforcements and crash boxes with watertight bulkheads.

Strong highly effective cold foam insulation inside provides protection against heat and cold and contributes to a comfortable indoor climate.

The range with 2 x 3.000 litres is 3.200 nm at 8 knots and 2.900 nm at 9 knots.

Available with conventional diesel engines or with the innovative electric hybrid system "Green Eco Power Supply".

Headroom in saloon 2.25 m, in hulls 2.20 m. CE Certification Category A with 12 persons.

Optionally available reinforcements, approx. 30 cm above and below each of the 4 waterlines, provide increased protection against containers, flotsam and ice in Arctic waters.

Design according to your preferences

The design of the Catmar Explorer® 78 Power can be customised to your individual requirements in terms of the flybridge- and fore cockpit design, the number, layout and design of the cabins, the saloon, the interior fittings, the furnishings, ceilings and walls as well as the entire technical equipment.

Alternatively, a completely new "full custom" design is also possible according to your preferences and ideas.

The designing and construction costs are comparable to those of some semi-custom manufacturers. However, with Catamaris® there are no restrictions on the realisation of your ideas and desires thanks to the "full-custom" construction method.

In the final result, every customer gets his Catmar Explorer® catamaran exactly as he wants it!
