A custom built Class A bluewater catamaran, she was built to cross oceans and she has magnificently done so!

Review listing for full inventory of all that she brings to her new owner.

The FastCat 445 and was designed by Angelo Lavranos based on first principles to be light, strong and fast. With her double-owner layout, she was built with the private owner cruiser in mind, rather than the typical charter-market catamaran. She is well equipped to be a safe, fast, passage-making vessel. Her light but strong design facilitates a maximum payload of 5 tonnes - a very useful feature when living aboard. The cockpit layout allows her to be sailed without ever needing to leave its safety. Unlike many other production catamarans which are constructed with polyester resin, her deck and hulls are epoxy resin-infused, ensuring she remains osmosis free.

Original owner’s quote after her shakedown cruise “If a shakedown cruise is intended to test a boat fully, then rounding the Cape of Good Hope has proved to be a damned good choice. From Saturday onwards, we have been bounced around big time – and I do mean, BIG TIME! Wave and wind have done their damnedest to put her through her paces. And all we can say is she appears to have passed the test well – at no point did we ever feel unsafe or fear for her ability to cope with it all
