Big Price Drop! As is!!
ALYKAT is a modified owner version Catana 401. She has two staterooms and a very functional office (with a big freezer) in the port forward spot. If you go over her extensive inventory you will see she's a suitable liveaboard catamaran. Allykat is very fast, and with her overbuilt bulkheads, carbon rig and impressive suit of sails she will be one the best sailing 40' cats attainable!
Alykat sports a recent 2019 all carbon mast by Offshore Spars and 2019 Hydranet mainsail. The Catana 401 was introduced in 2000 along with the golden era Catanas that made the company's reputation. A well awarded design that has both the classic Loch Crowther influences mixed with Christophe Barreau's forward thinking ideas. Design features include asymmetrical hulls, tulip shaped bows, daggerboards, and extremely high bridgedeck clearance for her length. The Catana 401's innovations include total mainsail management from the safety of the cockpit via a two speed electric winch, wide clean flat decks with all sail control lines lead aft under the deck and no hatches to trip over. Catana's ocean view port lights provide excellent ventilation while at anchor. ALYKAT was launched in May 2000. After her commissioning and sea trials, she was shipped to Ft. Lauderdale arriving in June 2000. Her first owner, who was an experienced catamaran owner equipped her to be both comfortable and safe without sacrificing the performance of this design.
ALYKAT's second owner lived aboard with his wife for three years. The owner was an America's Cup and Olympic sailing medalist and a professional racing sailor. Because of his push for perfection, ALYKAT has been maintained and upgraded constantly. ALYKAT is the best performing, well-equipped and suitable live aboard or weekend cruising catamaran in her class. She's a rare privately owned yacht with no bareboat charter history and has operated as a Captained Day Charter operation by her current owners in the Newport, RI area, 

Owner's Notes: ALYKAT currently has a Jones Act operational for this boat, which is transferable to the new owners. This is a great option for those who want to place the boat in a charter scenario.

The two outer hull molds and one inner hull/bridgedeck mold are vacuum bagged using vinylester resin, cored with PVC closed cell foam with unidirectional cloth for outer laminate & Twaronâ aramid cloth for inner laminate.
The separately molded daggerboard trunks are laminated to be seven times stronger than the daggerboards. All bulkheads are cored with Nidacoreâ honeycomb core with carbon fiber on both sides. The spade rudders have self-adjusting JP3 bushings with Lecomble & Schmidt dual hydraulic steering coupled to leather rimmed stainless wheel.

The deck/coachroof is a one piece mold, vacuum-bagged using vinylester resin, cored with Nidacore? honeycomb with unidirectional cloth for outer laminate & Twaron aramid cloth for inner laminate, and molded diamond pattern non-skid decks.

The deck to hull joint is bonded by fiberglass creating a seamless waterproof and rigid structure. 2007 a foam cored fiberglass hard bimini top was added to cover the entire cockpit and built strong enough to walk on. This custom hard top is molded with crown to match the lines of the boat and coated with non-skid on the top. The top also has rain gutters and a very efficient rain catchment system built in.

Custom lower profile fiberglass halyard tunnel under the bridgedeck in 2009. Increases bridgedeck clearance, reduces waves noise, much stronger tunnel and new rollers to reduce halyard friction.

Constructed from a mold built and installed by Bennett Brothers Yachts.

In 2009 ALYKAT had a major refit at Bennett Brothers Yacht Yard in Wilmington, NC in conjunction with Bruce Marek Yacht Design Firm. ALYKAT had all her bulkheads rebuilt to double their original thickness and strength. In addition, she had all her interior wood work related to these bulkheads redone as well. ALYKAT comes complete with professional marine certification from Bruce Marek Yacht Design and Bennett Brothers Yachts certifying the work and the structural integrity of ALYKAT. She is truly the strongest Catana 401 in the world!

Manufacturer Note
The design of the Catana 401 leaves nothing to chance; everything has been thought out for pleasure, convenience, and safety. The ten interior layout versions offered with the Catana 401 allow the boat to be ideally adapted to a specific navigation program. A truly comfortable chart table, facing forward with the electrical panel and all navigation instruments, shares a salon for six guests. The table is large and user friendly thanks to its panoramic view and its position in relation to the salon. The cook participates in the life of the salon and cockpit through a large sliding door and window. The galley is very practical for serving both the salon and the cockpit.
The owner’s head is vast and well ventilated, with shower, washbasin, and toilet. A gigantic trampoline with a woven mesh specially developed by our design office provides comfort and safety unheard of on other catamarans The ground tackle is stored out of the way, the two helm stations are exceptional, and the cockpit is ergonomic. 

The lifting daggerboards give better windward performance than a monohull and allow extraordinary speeds when reaching. Once raised, they offer indispensable safety in heavy weather.

Your team delivered on every mark. You’ve got an amazing broker in Mark Wattrus and I’m confident you will have continued success moving forward together. He was available 24/7 whenever I had questions. We had a great initial visit on the boat and his marketing plan and photos were superb

— Jimmy

I bought a yacht that I had never seen. I did this because I trusted my broker Andrew Holland. It was not an easy job for Andrew, as I am an experienced boat builder and owner of previous yachts, but work in West Africa. Imagine how hard it was to communicate what I was looking for. Andrew came up with exactly what I wanted. He dealt with time delays, all my questions at odd hours, and was there for the survey. He reported honestly and professionally. After buying the yacht, I arrived at the boat on a Sunday night, after dark, after travelling from West Africa to the Caribbean, and found it was better than expected. He never pulled punches and made me aware of shortfalls. I expected to spend my one month leave working on the boat, but actually spent less than one week, and was able to spend 3 weeks sailing – wonderful bonus.

Thank you Andrew for putting up with all my questions, all my worries and all my crazy out of the time zone concerns – you were totally professional, but also I know that if and when we meet up, it will be like a friend finally meeting. You are always welcome on Aseka.


— Beverly Cory

Outstanding company with professional subject matter experts. If I were to buy or sell cruising sailboat, particularly a catamaran, Andrew would be my go to broker.

— JT

I have been sailing since I was a child and attended Massachusetts Maritime Academy. But when my wife and I began the process of purchasing an ocean cruising/racing catamaran, I realized that this is a world unto itself. Obviously, we needed to find someone knowledgeable to help us make an informed decision. More importantly, we needed someone honest and willing to put our interests before his or her own. I was lucky to work with Phil Berman at The Multihull Company. He repeatedly shunned the fast buck, choosing instead to work the long road to connect us with the “perfect boat”. I would be glad to recommend Phil and his company to anyone planning to purchase or sell a performance sailing machine.

— Eric Boutiette

Andrew Hodgdon was our broker when we bought our 2018 Lagoon 450F in Antigua in April 2922. He provided great service and was very attentive to our needs. We would highly recommend Andrew and the Multihull Company.
