The Cat Flotteur 42 is a robust and seaworthy catamaran designed by Michel Joubert and constructed in 1996 at the renowned French shipyard Prometa. Bearing the French flag with VAT paid in France, this vessel boasts a Strongall construction featuring thick aluminum plates, offering exceptional durability and safety for ocean crossings. The hull, with a bottom thickness of 12mm, sides of 10mm, and deck and superstructure of 8mm, ensures sturdiness.

Noteworthy features include a unique ability to navigate shallow waters and access beaches for maintenance, facilitated by 20mm plates under the keels. The 12.80m length, 6.45m width, and 1.20m draft provide a spacious and stable platform for cruising.

Powered by twin Yanmar 4JH4 54 hp engines with SD 50 sail drive transmissions and 18″ J-Prop feathering propellers, the Cat Flotteur 42 offers reliable and efficient propulsion. The sail configuration includes a 3 reef full-batten mainsail, a Genoa on a new Profurl furler (2019), a hank-on Stormsail on a second forestay, and a spinnaker with a sock.

Equipped for off-grid living, the catamaran features 1000W solar panels, a 400W wind generator, and an 800Ah AGM battery bank (6 months old). The power system includes a 1500W pure sine inverter and a secondary 300W inverter at the chart table.

In terms of navigation and communication, the vessel is well-appointed with GPS, VHF radio, AIS transceiver, SSB radio, radar, depth sounder, and wind indicators. Two autopilots ensure reliable course-keeping.

For comfort and convenience, the Cat Flotteur 42 incorporates a 12V watermaker producing 24 liters per hour, and its epoxy tanks store a total of 400 liters of water. The spacious interior accommodates 10 people across four large cabins, each equipped with ample storage. Additionally, there are two heads on board.

Completing the package, the catamaran includes a 3D Tender dinghy with a Tohatsu 18 hp outboard motor. The overall condition and seaworthiness of the Cat Flotteur 42 were last assessed in a survey conducted in 2019.
