Dean Catamarans

Dean Catamarans for sale

Dean Catamarans, a shipyard based in South Africa, was under the ownership and management of father and son duo Peter Dean Sr. and Peter Dean Jr. Their extensive experience was cultivated in the unpredictable seas of South Africa, where wind speeds could fluctuate from 10 to 60 knots within minutes, and wave heights could soar up to 17 meters. This firsthand knowledge shaped their approach, placing a strong emphasis on safety and seaworthiness in every yacht they designed and constructed.

Dean Catamarans primarily catered to private owners with aspirations of ocean cruising, prioritizing safety and security in their vessels. However, in 2013, the company ceased operations. Nevertheless, Xquisite Yachts took over and continued the sailboat data legacy by introducing a modified Dean 5000 design at a different shipyard.
