The CATANA (in which they also find the associated company Bali) Group has two production sites in France, at Canet-en-Roussillon and at Marans in the Charente-Maritime. This enables the CATANA yard to control every stage of the build of its models. From research and development, to building and finishing, to delivery and hand-over.
With the prestige of a famous brand, whose reputation grows a little every day, our clients benefit from the fruit of 30 years’ experience in boatbuilding as well as the dynamic skills of our teams.
The men and women of the Catana Group share a passion for using the most advanced and most environmentally friendly technologies to help realise our clients’ dreams.
A passion for quality Yachting is our vocation, and combined with our know-how, we have developed industrial tooling without equal, to the benefit of innovation.
We continually strive to offer our clients the best in marine construction and the best possible service at every stage, so they have greater enjoyment and security sailing on all the oceans of the world.
Construction qualities aside, this new project strikes for its very innovative design where the keynote is represented by the livability of spaces.
The choice to place both the pilot station and the dinette on the same level is a direct consequence of this concept. The solution was already adopted on the Catana 62 and 70 . However, we think that, introduced on the 53-footer, it seems to be more valuable because it’s just on smaller sizes that it expresses all its potential.
Not only it results into a considerable livability and the possibility of creating a unique large open space when the door which separates exteriors from the dinette is open but it also improves the livability of the two helmsman stations.
Characteristics distinctive to the brand
Good bridge-deck clearance and high freeboard for comfort and safety, inverted bows to improve performance while reducing loadings, curved foil-type daggerboards to help avoid the risk of “tripping up” and to optimise the pointing angle, “crash boxes” forward and aft to make the boat unsinkable.
In order to offer such performance with this level of comfort and features, CATANA has called on the major equipment suppliers for the technical aspects, and component manufacturers for the interior finish. All so that the best of their products is combined with CATANA know-how.
Performance, safety, longevity, innovation, finish, attention to detail – these are the principal characteristics of a CATANA.
Going further with speed
This symbolises CATANA’s desire to come up with more than just speed. Few builders can claim to offer their cruising boat fans a boat which is at the same time innovative, fast and luxurious, without compromising its seakeeping qualities. This is where the company bring together the three elements it holds dear: Performance, Safety and ultimate Comfort, the combination of CATANA values which produces unique boats. For more than 30 years and more than 650 models built.
