Kallima is a Catana 47 performance catamaran designed for long distance cruising and for speed. The Catana build gives a light and rigid hull, thanks to their use of “Carbon Infusion”, vacuum infusion technology combined with Twaron and carbon. This gives a shock proof, light and very strong build.
The interior design is the 30th anniversary edition with light coloured furnishings and an improved interior flow. The result is a luminous and modern finish.
It is difficult to find a catamaran that is better designed for cruising. The light structure allows for exceptional performance, so fans of fast sailing with be pleased. Boat handling is straight forward with Catana’s signature set-up bringing all lines back to several well-placed Harken winches in the cockpit. Sailing solo or short handed is completely possible. The electronics are all Furuno and there are 2 auto helm control stations. The sail plan allows for many different weather conditions: mainsail in hydranet, genoa, staysail, storm sail, gennaker and asymmetrical spinnaker … there’s a full suite. Safety equipment is up to date, and the boat is completely autonomous: 960W of solar, Watt&Sea hydrogenator, diesel generator, water maker.
Kallima’s current owners bought her new, replacing their Catana 42, and have sailed her as far as Alaska. What other catamaran would you imagine sailing this far north? Their sailing stories have been widely reported in the press.
Both the technical and the aesthetic aspects of this Catana 47 are excellent. You’ll be hard pressed to see that she’s a pre-owned boat. Catana’s policy of building only bigger models makes this boat all the more sought after and we expect she’ll find a new owner fast. If you’re looking for a catamaran that is incredibly well made, with a modern design you’ll quickly fall in love with Kallima. Contact us to arrange your visit!
