With her flybridge, four cabins and 10 berths, the Catspace offers in 40 feet what many of her competitors struggle - or are reluctant - to present aboard a catamaran of 42 or even 45 feet...

The 4.1 is ending her career, soon to be replaced by a 4.2, while the 4.6 will take over from the 4.5. As for the very recent Bali 4.8 (see the full test in MW171), she will be presented to the public at this seasons boat shows. The largest model and the first powercat in the range - the 5.4 and the Power 43 - have seen slightly more modest distribution, but they have found their audience.

So, we had to wait until June 2020 to finally discover this original 40-foot boat, mainly aimed at charter.
