PANDORA'S CAT is an owners version that is immaculate throughout. Her knowledgeable, original owners took delivery of her new in France and they have cruised the world in comfort and safety. The condition and maintenance of the yacht is remarkable! She has new Trampolines and a brand new Doyle Stack Pack & Lazy Jack System. Her interior and exterior soft goods are perfect as are her soles and cabinetry. From bow to stern she shows like a new yacht.
Catana catamarans have been plying the world’s oceans safely and swiftly for 25 years and have proven to be one of the most popular brands of cats on the water. The Catana design team has consistently developed new and interesting features in their yachts to make them safe, stable and fast.
Catanas are distinctively Catanas, with a purposeful, modern look, and innovative hull forms. The builder has stressed safety and comfort in the design of the hulls and they offer unique shapes below the water to reduce pitching motion. The deep daggerboards greatly enhance windward sailing ability. The 50 has a carbon fiber mast, an aluminum boom, and advanced rigging systems that have evolved from the offshore racing fleet. The sail plan offers plenty of power yet the boat is meant for a cruising couple so hardware, sheet leads and winches are arranged to be convenient to the helm stations. The 50 is a performance sailboat first and a commodious home afloat second. With a beam of almost 26 feet, and high volume hulls, the cabin spaces inside are spacious and comfortable.
The owners suite on PANDORA'S CAT is the entire starboard hull with a large sleeping cabin, head, separate stall shower, washer / dryer and loads of storage. The guest cabins are fore and aft in the port hull. A huge pantry will hold ample provisions for extended cruising. The main salon is vast, with a dinette that can accommodate six adults and a galley suitable for gourmet chefs. The galley is located aft to port in the salon and a large opening window connects it with the cockpit for serving and entertaining. There is a comfortable forward facing nav station and the interior finish is modern and elegant. The views from the dinette are expansive and views from the cockpit are unobstructed by supports.
If you are looking for a floating home in which to explore the world in safety and comfort at high speeds, PANDORA'S CAT offers a proven and unique solution. As soon as you step aboard, you know the yacht was designed by sailors for sailors and she is configured to meet the rigors of the sea.

Catana's are distinctively Catana's, with purposeful, sleek lines and hull forms. The builder has stressed safety and comfort in the design of the hulls, which offer unique shapes below the water to reduce pitching motion and enhance windward performance. The 50 has daggerboards that greatly improve windward sailing ability. The 50 has a carbon fiber mast, an aluminum boom and advanced rigging systems that have evolved from the offshore racing fleet. Another very welcome feature of the 50 is the hard foredeck with anchor locker between the trampolines, making anchoring in any conditions easier and safer.
The sail plan offers plenty of power, yet the boat is meant for a cruising couple, so hardware, sheet leads and winches are arranged to be convenient to the outboard helm stations. The 50 is a performance sailboat first, and a commodious home afloat closely second. Of course, one can fit a lot of living space in a 50-foot cat, and Catana’s designers are masters at doing just that. With a beam of almost 26 feet and high-volume hulls, the cabin spaces inside are quite generous and comfortable.
The starboard hull owner’s suite on PANDORA'S CAT offers a spacious and airy, cross-ventilated sleeping cabin with a king size berth, head with sink, separate shower stall and vanity, and expertly crafted modern cabinetry revealing a huge volume of organized storage. The port hull guest staterooms are fore (a double) and aft (two twin berths), along with loads of additional storage.
The main salon is vast and bright, with a dinette that opens to accommodate six or more adults and a galley suitable for a gourmet chef, with plenty of solid-surface countertop, a double sink, and stainless appliances including three independent versatile fridges or freezers (just modulate the temperatures as you wish). PANDORA’S CAT has the much-preferred layout with the galley aft to port and a wide sliding window connecting it with the huge cockpit, a feature ideal for serving and entertaining.
The well laid out nav station is forward-facing, and while it is set aside, it’s still very much part of the living space. The salon’s interior finish is light, modern and elegant, with matching wood blinds throughout. The views from the dinette are expansive and the massive 180-degree cockpit panorama is unobstructed by supports. The convergence of these beautifully conceived design elements results in a truly indoor-outdoor living and cruising experience.
