45' Bridgedeck Cruising Cat

A 45' bridgedeck cruising catamaran

My popular 45' cruising cat design has been updated. It is roomier, with a cockpit sun cover. The flared hulls give much more room inside.

This popular 45' bridgedeck cruising catamaran is designed for blue-water cruising. This cat has serious offshore features, not just dock-side appeal.

Zeevonk, shown below carried passengers on extended Atlantic ocean tours.
