Manufacturer Provided Description

An exceptional combination of speed, comfort and space! At 55 feet and over, the profile of the Catana 55 is noticeably longer and offers an increased amount of interior space compared with alternative models. The Catana 50’s big brother, praised for its comfort and performance by the best-selling US sailing magazine, is the ideal catamaran for long voyages with friends or family.
Built at the shipyard in Canet-en-Roussillon, France, it benefits from all the advantages of carbon fibre production, used as standard on the main partitions, roof, hull reinforcements and structural supports.
Whether you are sailing with friends or family, step on board, hoist the mainsail and experience the thrill of cutting through the waves at top speed on this exceptional catamaran. The Catana 55 combines the ultimate in safety and performance and guarantees outstanding levels of comfort for all its passengers.


  • The Catana shipyard has paid close attention to passenger comfort: everything on board is designed to make life easier for a large family or group of friends.
  • The beautifully practical U-shaped galley is ideal for preparing food and enjoying a convivial meal with up to eight people.
  • At night, the Catana 55’s double cabins (up to six available as an option) grant excellent levels of comfort. Furthermore, at 55 feet in length, the new Catana offers outstanding stability and increased resistance to pitching, for an even more pleasant voyage.


  • Thanks to its length and generous headroom under the nacelle, the Catana 55 not only offers excellent stability on the water but also shares all the advantages of the rest of the Catana fleet.
  • The instruments are all located in the cockpit, where the toerails, lifelines and handrails have been carefully designed for easy, unrestricted movement.
  • Such ease of access is a valuable asset when sailing in heavy weather.
  • Sailing close-hauled, tacking and reefing are facilitated, which, along with the electric winches, allow the helmsman to focus his efforts where they are needed.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
