An ideal ocean-going explorer 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.
Perfectly suited for a small crew, e.g. for a couple, even with children or occasional guests. The sails can be operated "single-handed" at any time - e.g. during long transocean passages.
The Catmar Explorer® 57 is available with a flybridge or with a half-height, sheltered steering position. Also available in a well thought out layout for wheelchair users.
The yacht is built from class 5083 H 321/H111 aluminum, which is certified by "Germanischer Lloyd, Bureau Veritas or Lloyd's Register". Our Explorer catamarans are equipped with bow reinforcements and crash boxes with watertight bulkheads. More about benefits of aluminium.
Strong highly effective foam insulation throughout the interior provides protection against heat and cold and contributes to a pleasant interior climate.
Available with conventional diesel engines or with the innovative electric hybrid system "Green Eco Power Supply".
Particularly large living/usable space: Flybridge version 174.20 sqm, half-height protected steering position version 145 sqm. Headroom in saloon 2.10 m, in hulls 2.05 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.
The design of the Catmar Explorer® 57 can be customised to your individual requirements in terms of the flybridge 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!
