With more than 26 years of experience and the help of several established firms of naval architects, the Catana drawing office has taken a fresh look at what makes the perfect catamaran. All this has culminated in the new Catana 59. A Catana with incredibly streamlined hulls, classically elegant, and offering astounding performance. The sail plan is borrowed from racing vessels, with a short mainsail that is easy to manage and a larger foresail. Moving away from the legendary daggerboards that made the Catana shipyard's name, this catamaran is fitted with revolutionary curved daggerboards, to create a hydrofoil effect. The result is an extremely safe and comfortable boat that achieves astonishing acceleration and an extraordinary cruising speed.
Equal attention has been accorded to the layout of the Catana 59's interior.
The cockpit and salon are on the same level, with a central area which can be extended into either, to make space for a large table.
On the port side, it has a galley with a central island and a fine chart table facing the sea.
A great deal more generous in size than its illustrious predecessor, the Catana 59 has three large cabins and a helmsman's cabin that can be used as a fourth passenger cabin; the passageways and cabins are more spacious and have more storage space to provide greater comfort on a long-distance voyage.
Its incredible stability on water, due to its 59 feet and significant headroom under the nacelle, is complemented by its astonishing manoeuvrability.
The instruments are all located in the cockpit, with the toerails, lifelines and handrails designed for easy, unrestricted movement.
Visibility has also been a major focus of attention.
The unobstructed 360° view from the cockpit, steering position, chart table and even the salon, guarantees an unparalleled level of safety and comfort.
