With a superb specification and presented in first class condition, VMG is an outstanding example of the renowned carbon infusion Catana 42 performance cruising catamaran. She is seaworthy and fast, equally capable on ocean passages or on a sparkling day trip. She has many customised features that will not be found on other C42s. VMG is the perfect balance of sailing performance, looks, comfort and live-ability combined with ease of handling and maintenance.

High performance sails in Hydra Net® provide a powerful yet easily controlled sail plan. The unique hull design by Christophe Barreau and dagger-boards give excellent performance on and off the wind, exceptionally so in very light airs. Twin steering positions with all control-lines led back to the cockpit make her easily and safely handled by one person; she is forgiving even when pushed hard. VMG achieves remarkable speeds in winds under 10kts when other boats turn their engines on, and is equally able to tackle heavy weather.

The unique advantage of Catana catamarans over their rivals is their ability to carry the payload required for comfortable long-term independent cruising without sacrificing sailing performance. Time on board is a pleasure, there is space to relax and live comfortably without compromise. The interior layout works perfectly at sea and at anchor. In any weather the uninterrupted panoramic views are a wonderful bonus which cannot be under-estimated.

Since Catana have halted production of C42 and C47 models there will be few opportunities to purchase a modern catamaran with a rare blend of performance and cruising features. VMG is fully prepared and ready to start her next adventure.
