So rare that  I’ve lost contact with this boat. Hate to delete this ad though because it’s such a cool boat. I’m going to leave it here for historical references.

$300k in price reduction since June 2014!

I’ve been a huge fan of Power Catamarans for a long time. They’ve certainly proven themselves over the past thousand years or so on the Pacific Ocean. Remember the Kon Tiki?

A little Catamaran history:

Cat’s became very popular in the early 60’s. Marinette even built a production model out of Aluminum (the perfect material, both light and strong) back  in 1962. With the advent of plywood Rudy Cheoy  built some big sailing cats that cruised the world during the 60’s and 70’s.  A custom power cat- over 100′ was commissioned and built for a yachtsman  in Miami Beach back in the 60’s too.  There’s always been a demand for big Power Cats, but few builders building them. NOW with the advent of high tech glass and coring- the time is ripe again. And enter  Catman Cats, Inc.(Felix Herrin) in Urbanna, Va., who built several yachts that tickle my fancy. Hopefully you’ll agree with me, that there’s no bigger, nicer boat built in 2009 for only $799k (now $599k as of 3/15).  ALL were custom built on order, therefore you will find differences in the layouts, engine packages, etc., between the 54’s.  Rare to find one the brokerage market.


Mares- out of Rio De Janerio entered the catamaran field full throttle in the early 90’s building big FAST diesel cat’s out of fiberglass.   I was fortunate enough to broker and sell both a 54′,and a 50′ Mare. These boats were FAST and fun. Fuel was  also cheap back then- the 54′ would cruise at 30 knots, and the 50′ actually hit 50 mph!   I also had the privilege of touring a 90′ Mare Cat here. WOW.    Wide beam makes for huge interior volume, and gigantic deck spaces.    Mare’s later focused on building super fast 38′ ers- leaving a gap in the power cat market for a long time, although I understand they might have a new big one in build as of 10/13.   Prout, A British company built some large quality power cats- but they went out of business in the early 2000’s.   Unfortunatel not many large cruising power cats have been built since that time. Sure there’s been Endeavour 44’s, and a handful of custom (rather ugly IMHO) big one’s of Tenant design, but until the Crosswaters by Catman came along- Nothing I could enthusiastically offer my clients.

Built in the  USA –   Only a handful of Crosswaters were built, but for my money they are THE boats to buy in this size and price range.  Modern electronic Cummin’s engines offer smoke free, quiet and excellent fuel economy.

Nauti-Gail II is well equipped for coastal cruising and island hopping.  There’s an optimum balance of tank capacity aboard: 1,440 gallons of fuel, 220 gallons of fresh water, 220 gallons for grey water and 154 gallons for black water.  She has plenty of dry storage capacity all throughout the boat.  There is ample room for additional equipment, should you so desire.  Nauti-Gail II has a cruising range of 1,400 nm at 14 knots.Clean design- great visibility. ONLY 180 hours since new.


Nauti-Gail II provides exceptional performance in many ways.  Her twin 380 HP Cummins QSB (computerized) common rail electronic engines with 194 hours propel her at an 18 knot cruise with very high fuel efficiency, burning only 13 gallons per hour per engine.  These engines are smokeless and quiet (80% less than mechanical injected Cummins)due to Aqua Drives which are constant velocity joints, that reduce vibration that normally would be transmitted through the vessel.   The bulbous bows flatten the bow wave reducing drag and further increasing the vessel’s speed, efficiency and range.


uh, hell yeah!

Now THIS is what I call a master stateroom!


master head

The VIP stateroom;


The stacked washer and dryer

no shortage of elbow room in the guest head either, is there?

This is the guest stateroom.

This is a quite large and “complicated” (different from your standard monohull layout) so you really need to study this drawing to see where everything is. This is a sistership Catman, and shows a day head on the aft-deck. This boat doesn’t have that, but otherwise is very similar.


Big and beautiful, and in a yacht no less!
