New generation catamarans
Our catamaran FastCat/GreenCat 445 was designed from the bottom up to be lighter and stronger than the previous generation catamarans. This meant bringing the methods that have been perfected for other technologies into the art of boat building. Extensive use of CAD tools allowed us to put strength where it is needed and remove materials and weight from places where it is not. Every corner of the design was examined with a keen eye towards strength and weight. (infinite analysis)
Examples of how we produce our catamarans
- The complete hull is made of basalt fiber (optional: carbon fiber) and is vacuum infused with epoxy.
- The hulls are reinforced with the Twaron aramid impact protection system.
- The complete catamaran is spray painted in two component paint (no gellcoat is used to save weight).
- Keels, bimini and saloon roof are made of carbon.
- Diesel and water tanks are integrated with the hulls which results in less weight and more strength as the tanks are part of the structure with Twaron or Aramid fibre and carbon reinforcements in all structural areas.
- One piece construction whenever possible.
- All our epoxy yachts are post cured in order to gain maximum strength (they are baked in an oven for eight hours at eighty degrees Celsius).
One piece builds
Unlike most other catamarans the hulls and lower deck are built as one piece as is the deck itself. This results in a stronger boat that weighs less, much in the same way as an integral body of an aircraft.
