Cora Catamarans

Cora Catamarans

Space, Grace and Pace

When Philippe Guenat and naval architect Dr Albert Nazarov created the Cora Catamarans concept, the ideas of space, pace, and grace guided the entire design philosophy.

From this deceptively simple framework emerged the Cora Cat 48 power catamarans that unite advanced construction techniques, high quality, and contemporary lines. This emphasis on just three words has delivered a truly defining moment in yacht design and construction.
Evolution of the Model
The Cora Cat model is an improved version of the Heliotrope 48, with a whole interior and exterior redesign, new deck moulds and extra features throughout.


Unlike many high-performance catamarans, which sacrifice comfort for speed, the Cora Catamarans range is renowned for its adept use of space. The Cora Cat 48 incorporates our huge signature flybridge, which is larger than any in its category.

Alongside generous cabins and a spacious galley, we provide plenty of deck space without compromising performance. Finally, for additional security, Cora Catamarans sit high in the water, offering all-around visibility and safe maneuvering.


Alongside the superior performance and open space, every model is a statement of our artistry, featuring a sweeping, contemporary feel. The Cora Cat 48 is semi customisable, so you can build with us the power catamaran that suits your unique tastes.


Cora Catamarans incorporate fast displacement hulls, which deliver effortless speed, high maneuverability, and excellent fuel economy. The advanced vacuum infusion hull construction technique reduces weight without compromising strength. This makes handling easy whether gently sailing the oceans or ramping up the power.

With our focus on traditional crafts and high-quality materials, choosing a Cora Catamaran will give you an exquisite vessel that will serve you for many rewarding years.

The Shipyard

Cora Catamarans are built by the prestigious PMG Shipyard. The yard was first established in 2004, as a privately held company with Swiss ownership and management.

Strategically located by the sea on the eastern seaside of the Gulf of Thailand, the production and offices sit on a 20,800m2 facility with direct sea access and its own launching pier.

PMG Shipyard specialises in the construction of luxury yachts and catamarans, both power and sail, and have produced several brands such as Silent Yachts and Heliotrope Catamarans (of which the Cora Cat 48 has evolved).

A strong European presence in management and key technical positions with world-renowned members of the advisory board, allows the shipyard to develop technically advanced, stylish, practical, economical and safe yachts. Key management includes NASA astronaut Michael Lopez Alegria and Raphael Domjan who is founder of Planet Solar.  PMG’s technical board provides new developments and contacts with renowned universities and solar research centres, strengthening their expertise continuously.
