The Catana 40S catamaran is a rare find, as these were the first catamarans built by Catana. Only 18 were made and 'Shaman', built in 1992, is hull #17. Designed for fast cruising, 'Shaman' is berthed in Coconut Grove, Miami in the USA.
Designed by Lock Crowther, the rounded hulls increase speed while the dagger boards improve upwind capability. Under high wind conditions this catamaran has reached 19.5 knots with the spinnaker, 17.5 kts using the jib alone, and 14.5 kts on a beam reach.
