The 2015 Catana 47 “Zoi” was originally purchased with nearly every possible upgrade and then sailed from France to the US where we sold the boat to her second owners in 2018.
The second owners spared no expense outfitting the boat to take them and their two young children around the world. They did a shake-down cruise to the Bahamas in 2019, returned to the US, did an additional $100k plus in upgrades to the boat in Florida and three months later the boat was dropped off its stands when it was getting a bottom job. The previous owners successfully fought the insurance company for the right to walk away from the vessel, and the insurance company then sold the vessel to the current owners who completed and documented all repairs..
From November of 2021 to March of 2022, the current owners worked to make the boat structurally sound and all systems working properly. In March of 2022, ABYC surveyors were hired to survey the boat. The boat was determined to be properly repaired and as structurally sound as the day she was built (survey available)
The boat was splashed on July 5, 2022 where work continued on additional systems that needed attention. In November of 2022, the rigging was inspected and deemed in good condition. (Survey available) On December 10th, 2022 the current owners set sail with her to the Bahamas and onward in their journey.
The current owners have now completed their journey’s with “Zoi” and she is back available for the most discerning sailors looking for a carbon-infused performance catamaran.
With its outstanding performance and excellent standards of safety and comfort, the Catana 47, now more than ever, is the ideal boat for your first round-the-world trip, whether you are sailing single-handed or with a partner. Superbly remodelled by the Catana shipyard, the new version is almost 700 kilos lighter, with carbon fibre used as standard for the main partitions, roof and numerous structural supports. Imagine yourself at the helm of an ultra high-performance catamaran, with the power to maintain high average speeds over long distances. Timed at almost 25 knots during its initial trials, the Catana 47 is fast, light, robust and exceptionally easy to handle, giving both helmsman and passengers a remarkable sensation of speed and acceleration.
A perfect vessel in which to explore any of the world’s maritime pathways.
