Gata 78

Gata 78







The brain child of respected Captain Paul Hand the Gata 78 defines a new type of vessel.  She is not a Performance Cruising Catamaran; rather, the Gata 78 is a HIGH Performance Cruising Catamaran.  She bridges the gap between a dedicated Racing Mulitihull, and the existing Performance Cruising Catamarans on the market.  Capable of staying ahead of the fastest monohulls in the world on the race course, the Gata 78 still carries her crew in comfort.  Every detail on this boat has been born out of the experience of countless sea miles.  As world record breaking multihull sailor Brian Thompson explains, ” The Gata is a truly innovative design that will fulfill the most demanding need for speed, as well the pace, safety, and comfort for cruising.”
