PRESS RELEASE
AFRICAN CATS has started to build the new
FASTCAT 605 GREEN MOTION
This new sailing catamaran will have:
• retractable electric motogens
• retractable swing boards
• standard build in Basalt fibre thru epoxy resin infusion
She is being built in our new factory in Durban harbour.
This performance cruising catamaran will have a weight of
less than 13 metric T. ready-to-sail and in the optional carbon
version less than 11.5 T.
She will be all electric with Lithium Ion batteries
used for propulsion and house batteries.
There will be no gas on board.
Recharging will take place in 3 ways: wind, solar
and with the electric motogens while sailing.
Diesel generators can be built in optionally.
The hulls are already taking shape on a male
mould and once the hull is ready a female mould
will be made of this hull.
