We’ve got plenty of experience in engineering and construction using this method,” explains Can Soyaslan, the shipyard's founder, “We have designed and built molded wood yachts that are now more than 30 years old. To date, we have produced over 100 boats and yachts.” Soberly named CAT63, the catamaran features a modern design with strongly inverted bows and a superb standard of finish. The drivetrain chosen (2 x 110 HP Yanmars) guarantees a cruising speed of 8.5 knots and more than 10 knots at full speed. The 60 kWh of lithium batteries on board and the 3.44 kWp of solar panels should allow you to be self-sufficient when at anchor, i.e. without recourse to a generator or the engines.
