FASTCAT 445 GREEN MOTION
AFRICAN CATS builds comfortable lightweight performance leisure catamarans through epoxy resin infusion for sailing enthusiasts that demand the highest levels of performance, comfort, speed, security and reliability. The secret? An innovative approach to boat design and construction that spans the gamut from materials and techniques to beauty and ergonomics.
FASTCAT 445 GREEN MOTION built in basalt, carbon, Kevlar, and PVC foam with epoxy resin infusion and equipped with GREEN MOTION propulsion/generation system is the first fossil free sailing catamaran. At the helm of this sleek Lavranos design you will be amazed at the ease with which you can cruise along in the mid to high teens. When the Motogens* are retracted the drag decreases and the actual sailing speed increases because no sail drives, props, prop shafts or shaft supports are in the flow of the water and the result is even less energy used.
Check out the details of this design and see why we believe it is the break-through catamaran in this size range without diesel usage.
FastCat 445 Green Motion World Cruiser has all equipment needed for luxury and comfortable cruising. For those who do like a sportier, lighter and more basic version of the FastCat 445 we developed the Sports Cruiser with all needed equipment for long distance cruising like autopilot, GPS, chart plotter, VHF, Tri Data instruments etc. FastCat 445 equipped with the retractable Green Motion system for propulsion and generation is the first fossil free sailing catamaran.
