About

“Chris White’s design is brilliant. Unlike all other catamaran designs I know of, Chris’s Atlantic cats feature a waist-high cockpit forward of the pilot house and right behind the mast that you walk into from the pilot house through a full-size door. Catalyst’s pilot house is the perfect complement to its forward cockpit. Now that I’ve been living in it for a while, I can say it is the best “room” I’ve ever owned, a combination of living room, study, office, observation perch, and (its designed functions) inside steering station and navigation station.” From Sib Reppert aboard the Atlantic 42 “Catalyst” in the South Atlantic, June 2001

Additional Information

The comfortable fast cruiser. Cruising World Magazine, Boat of the Year “Sailing with my children we reached 21 knots boatspeed under main and jib in about 26 knots of wind, it’s incredible”. Dave Penfield, ATLANTIC 42 owner.

  • The ATLANTIC 42 offers cruising sailors benefits and features unmatched by any other catamaran on the market. The ATLANTIC 42 is a thoroughbred cruising catamaran perfected by 500,000 miles of ocean sailing experience with her ATLANTIC CATAMARAN sisters.
  • To realize the true potential of the cruising catamaran the ATLANTIC 42 is built with premium materials and techniques in order to yield a durable yet lightweight cruising yacht. And she performs! Whether upwind, downwind or across the wind the ATLANTIC 42 will delight her owners with crisp handling and consistent speeds in the teens.
  • The A-42 also excels below deck with a sensible accommodation plan designed for comfortable long term cruising.
  • Compare the ATLANTIC 42 feature by feature to any boat from any builder and you will see why we think that she is the most advanced cruising catamaran available.
  • BETTER CRUISING ACCOMMODATION
  • Pilothouse steering station, all weather comfort.
  • Larger and better equipped galley.
  • Pilothouse navigation station with a 360 degree view of the horizon.
  • Built in workbench and tool storage.
  • Larger double berths, 6’8” long 60” wide.
  • Separate, easy to clean shower compartment.
  • BETTER SAFETY
  • Unobstructed forward visibility from both steering positions.
  • Less crew fatigue with pilothouse design.
  • Center cockpit design provides maximum crew protection in heavy weather.
  • Reduced possibility of navigational errors with chart table adjacent to helm.
  • Wider overall beam resists heeling, rolling and capsize.
  • Collision bulkheads forward and aft in each hull.
  • 100% buoyant structure, the A-42 is completely unsinkable.
  • BETTER PERFORMANCE
  • Daggerboards dramatically increase windward performance and improve steering under all conditions.
  • Lighter weight through modern construction materials. Weight is EVERYTHING in catamaran performance, heavy cats are slow. The ATLANTIC 42 is 30% to 50% lighter than similar size cats from other builders without sacrificing strength. This translates into average sailing speeds being 20% to 40% greater than most catamarans. The maximum attainable speed is often double that of many production built cats.
  • BETTER DURABILITY
  • 100% vacuum bagged epoxy/glass construction. (Epoxy is far superior to polyester resin in durability, water exclusion and strength).
  • All hull to deck joints are spanned with epoxy/glass reinforcing and will never leak or crack.
  • Exterior finish in AwlGrip ™ provides far better gloss retention than “gel coat”.
  • BETTER HANDLING
  • Revolutionary center cockpit design puts the helmsman where he can see forward and SAIL the boat. Sheets, halyards and reefing gear are all within easy reach. The ATLANTIC 42 has a deck layout DESIGNED for single-handed or short handed sailing.
  • LESS DRAFT
  • 2’8” draft allows cruising where others can’t go. A shallow “bumper fin” permits beaching and protects the props and rudders from severe damage in event of accidental grounding.
  • Interior Layout features midship cockpit for easy short handed sailing. A full visibility pilothouse is aft of the cockpit which includes a duplicate steering station with engine controls and instruments on the starboard side, a deluxe navigation area to port and dining table aft. Lounge and dining table aft. Fully equipped galley is located in the starboard hull adjacent to the pilot house. A double cabin each with Queen size bed is located midships in each hull. A single cabin is forward in the port and starboard hull. Each hull contains a head, a separate shower compartment is located aft in the port hull.

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.
