2013 Catana 42 | Deux Vine
With very few Catana 42’s on the market today, this is a rare opportunity for anyone looking for a cruising catamaran that effectively combines performance and comfort.
Deux Vine features exceptional build quality, with the Catana 42’s sandwich construction incorporating Twaron®, a fibre that is 10 times more puncture resistant than classic fibreglass at half its density. The resulting weight savings and stiffness provided by this construction serves as the basis of the 42’s excellent performance.
This Catana 42 is the three cabins, two-bathroom owner’s version which boasts two exceptionally comfortable full queen-sized bunks in the aft cabins, and a double bunk in the starboard forward cabin. The port hull is the dedicated owner’s cabin featuring an abundance of storage, small desk/workstation midships and flowing through to the forward bathroom with electric toilet, spacious shower and separate wash basin and storage area.
There is a full-sized washing machine under the starboard forward bunk and a bathroom that is shared by between the aft and forward starboard cabins.
The fully equipped galley is located up on the bridge deck level and facing the cockpit which makes socialising a breeze. Forward of the galley is a roomy forward-facing navigation station with handy drawers and storage spaces.
The roomy, obstruction-free cockpit has one large L-shaped lounge around the cockpit table plus another lounge to starboard, making for comfortable outdoor dining and living. All lines feed back to the cockpit area making it easy to sail shorthanded. An electric primary winch makes raising sails and pulling up the dinghy on the davits a simple process.
The current owners have enjoyed six years of hassle-free cruising each winter and have maintained a stringent maintenance program throughout the summer.
For anyone looking for the ultimate performance cruiser that is easy to handle, manage and maintain, this Catana 42 is the ideal choice.
