The current generation Catana 42 exemplifies all the attributes that has made Catanas so sought after by bluewater sailors wanting the enjoyment of sailing a performance cruising catamaran in total comfort and safety at sea.
The Catana 42 shares the same hull design features dating back 30+ years ago which include asymmetrical hulls, tulip-shaped bows, and daggerboards. And the current model shares the same well-proven deck layout as earlier models since 1998 when the innovative sail management system and clean uncluttered decks were introduced.
LILLY (hull #32) is an owner’s version with a number of Catana custom features including additional wardrobe lockers in owner’s hull and a deck hatch in each forward cabin (port bathroom / starboard stateroom) for much improved ventilation. Plus all thru hull fittings and deck hardware were sealed with epoxy to prevent moisture migration in the closed cell foam.
LILLY had a number of original components such as mast, standing rigging, all electronics, and other AC equipment replaced in late 2015. And in the 2nd half of 2018 the original Volvo Penta D2-40 engines were replaced with new of same model due to original engines not meeting US EPA Tier 3 emission standards.
