The DutchCat is a prime example of the Dutch yachting industry’s enduring ability to surprise. This innovative motoryacht with a double hull is spacious and extremely stable, impressively energy efficient and easy to operate. The global launch of the first DutchCat took place at the HISWA Amsterdam in-water Boat Show 2016 in Amsterdam.
The DutchCat is a stable, comfortable catamaran that features the renowned craftsmanship of a large network of leading Dutch manufacturers. Vripack Naval Architects translated the ideas of initiator Jan van Eck into a contemporary, functional design, while specialised suppliers provided the most suitable parts.
