South Africa’s Two Oceans Marine is building the country's biggest-ever power catamaran – a 110ft (33.5m) charter power cat designed by industry stalwart Anton du Toit.
The vessel has an upper and lower deck and a flybridge, designed specifically for day charters for large groups, the company said in a post on their website.
“The upper deck has plenty of casual seating, and storage space for snorkelling gear for the guests. The lower deck has dining seating for 100 guests, as well as plenty of storage lockers, fridges, freezers, chilly bins and bars as well as galley equipment fit to cater for 100 people at sea,” the company says. “Below deck are more storage lockers and five heads.”
The company has also announced a new 8.5m Magnum power catamaran for the fishing sector, the latest edition to their Magnum series that underpins the local tuna fishery sector. The new Magnum was launched in February, filled with high density foam and “built to endure the Cape of Storms”, the company said in a statement.
“The catamaran hull provides excellent stability with a dry and soft ride. The walkaround cabin, which houses the main control station, offers comfortable seating with excellent vision to the aft deck and a clear 360-degree view of the surroundings through toughened tinted glass,” the statement said.
Two Oceans is one South Africa’s leading custom catamaran builders in the leisure, custom and commercial market. The company’s range of Magnum power catamarans underpins the local tuna fishing fleet. Through their partnership with Du Toit Yacht Design they have produced several innovative boats, including the Open Ocean 750 luxury expedition catamaran, launched in September 2015.
