Broker's Comments

The Catalac 9M was Tom Lack's first venture into catamaran design. He commissioned John Winterbotham of MG Duff LTD to design the Catalac 9M in 1968, forming part of a range of cruising catamarans which eventually ranged from 8m to 12m. All were built at Lack's yard in Christchurch.
His design was envisioned as the successor to Bill O'Briens venerable Bobcat Catamaran. They would be safe cruisers, aimed squarely at the family marketplace. Thought of as motor sailors because of the boxy design, these boats actually sail very well, don't heel while sailing and with the 6' 3 inches of headroom in the hulls, no one feels boxed in or forced to go 'camping'.

The Catalac 9M was constructed with solid fiberglass, chined hulls with lots of rocker and deep "V" sections forward which flattened out at the stern. The combination of "V" hulls and rocker, eliminated the need of keels while providing what was thought to be enough grip for windward performance.

The Catalac 9M was in fact a huge success in the marketplace and 255 boats were built over two decades. They hold their value very well, as does the entire line of Catalac boats. There are never more than a few boats for sale world wide at any given time as their owners have a difficult time finding a larger boat with the same level of quality and performance.

This example has been out the water since 2004 and is ready for someone to take her on and bring her back to her former glory.
The mast is cabin stepped in a tabernacle. These were designed be raised and lowered single handed.
Very good accommodation, well laid out and ideal for family cruising.
