Special Offers: Two ownership models available: Fractional or Outright. This 26 ft catamaran is also available in Power boat version.

Lifestyle & Use

Comfortable accommodations and an equipped kitchen makes this compact 26 ft leisure catamaran ideal for couples. The spacious aft deck has everything needed for extended (4-6 days) cruising. Generous open areas can be enclosed in inclement weather but allow life to continue al-fresco most of the time with large opening doors and windows at deck-height.

Unique Features

A very manoeuvrable catamaran and easy to sail due to the unique uni-rig. It has one sail that rolls away when not in use. The mast is aft stepped, out of the way. All lines lead to a single winch on the mast. The mast itself can be lowered and stores on the coachroof for transport or to pass under bridges. The boat fits into an international standard 40 foot container and can be shipped anywhere with a port. It also narrows and can be towed behind an SUV.

Design & Build

This 26 ft catamaran is an exciting new design by Southwell Designs and built by Further Composites in South Africa. It is a catamaran which is 10 times more stable than an equivalent monohull. Designed with a simple rig and one sail, twin engines and tiller controlled rudders, excellent visibility and a control system that allows it to turn in its own length.

Prices & Process

The price for this vessel starts at €149,950.00 Ex Vat, Ex Factory. Build Time is 14 weeks from deposit received.
