Welcome to Dazcat Designs, a world of custom catamarans and trimarans built to race and cruise. Dazcats are tested rigorously and have competed in many events, achieving class and overall wins in the Fastnet, Transatlantic, Round Britain and Ireland races and many others. They have cruised the world in comfort and safety, and are built to the highest standards to be light and strong, taking you wherever you want to go.

Our experienced and expanding design team have been designing, building and sailing multihulls for the last 25 years and work from first principles, challenging convention. We work closely with our clients, offering a one stop shop design and build service with our sister company Multimarine Composites. Because most people dream for years before buying a boat, we want to ensure the experience is one you will remember for all the right reasons, and that you get what’s exactly right for you. WHATEVER you want from your multihull, Dazcat will deliver.

A speedy tour of what we’ve been up to for some of our 25 years. We have many more videos of races, sea trials and events to share, including last year’s Triangle Race, in which we had 5 entries in the MOCRA class, and 2011’s Fastnet Race.
