Our Catamarans

After all, if you have a choice, why not ride on a thoroughbred?

Caribbean Catamaran Adventures has two high performance sailing catamarans for you to choose from – a bigger one and a smaller one, depending on how many passengers you want to accommodate and how much you want to spend. Each delivers a fantastic sailing experience.

Our Catamarans

Both of our  boats are constructed entirely of Bruynzeel marine-grade mahogany plywood, cold-molded, bonded and stabilized using WEST System epoxies. This costly boat-building technique, only used on large, one-off custom yachts, produces a much stronger, lighter craft than the conventional glass/polyester layups typical of factory production boats. On both our boats, the hulls are of lapstrake (clinker-built) construction, for both strength and beauty. Their interiors, in keeping with Peter Spronk’s “less-is-more” design philosophy, are bright, airy, uncluttered and functional, while at the same time they provide ample creature comforts and amenities.

About the Designer

Peter Spronk, a notable creator of fast and elegant catamarans, designed and built both Akka and Ikhaya. He built his boats to be capable of sailing the world over, but he most loved imagining them racing through the waters of the West Indies, where he spent the latter decades of his life. For over forty years, Peter and his wife Myrna built their reputations as legendary pioneers in the multihull world. When you step aboard Akka and Ikhaya, it is easy to understand why.
