The DutchCat concept is designed from totally outside-the-box thinking, where the traditional method of design based on limitations was abandoned.
The DutchCatTwelve is available in two versions with different underwater ships: the Comfort version and the Sport version. This is a unique option in the market. The underwater ship of the Comfort version gives so little resistance that it is suitable to be driven 100% electrically.
Besides the electric version, there are diesel and hybrid versions available. In total there are 6 propulsion lines: one is 100% electric, three are hybrids and two are diesel powered. The much lower resistance of both ‘shoes’ means that compared to monohull ships, they use far less energy and are therefore very environment friendly.
A few other unique features of the fully complete and ready-to-sail DutchCatTwelve:
Extremely good cruising characteristics, certified at CE category B for 12 people (offshore)
Flat floor throughout aft deck and saloon
Up to 100% lower diesel consumption
Low maintenance; low maintenance costs
Customisable areas and kitchen
An unprecedented “open” experience and 360 degree view
