Broker's Comments

The Catalac 8m is a versatile and comfortable catamaran combining comfortable living accommodation with good performance. This example has been well cared for by her current owner.
The boats had a stellar reputation for build quality and seaworthiness. Close to 1000 cruising catamarans were built by the Lack family, 600 of them were Catalacs, making them a cruising catamaran success story as well as one of the pioneers in multihulls.
This one is competitively priced at £24,950 and well worth a viewing.

This Catalac 8m has been personally photographed and viewed by Phil Key of Boatshed Torquay. Click here for contact details.
