Horsepower vs Weight ratio: Hammer Yachts builds power-catamarans which are 40% lighter compared to other vessels, which means that a HammerCat needs half the horsepower to get the same performance. Speed is mostly about horsepower vs weight ratio, the same with sports cars, bikes, planes, you name it. There is no reason for a quad engine set up on a HammerCat (though it can be done). We still get the same performance, yet we run very fuel-efficient with an amazing range.
We started Hammer Yachts in 2018 as we felt that the current offering of power catamarans were not what power-cats should be: elegant, high performance and fuel efficient. We felt that the power cat market was ready for a new concept and we assembled a team of experienced professionals resulting in the first HammerCat 35 being completed in 2019, a full-on production line for this model in 2020 and the first HammerCat 45 going into production in 2021.
Hammer Yachts builds up to 12 HammerCat 35’s per year, and each one is different. We can build the HammerCat 35 as a hard-core sport fishing vessel with tuna tower / live bait wells / coffin box /etc. Or we can build the HammerCat 35 more as a family day boat with seating for up to 14, U shaped seating forward, large coolers / iceboxes / dive door / dive ladders. Or we can mix and match to build a boating platform ideally suited to your needs.
Design and features:
The HammerCat 35 is the first model in the next generation of power catamarans. The HammerCat 35 is the first power catamaran to have gorgeous lines: a sweeping Carolina bow line normally only seen on mono-hull sport fish yachts. The HammerCat 35 combines her good looks above the waterline with a very efficient and modern “wave piercing” underwater body, featuring a double stepped hull for an amazingly soft ride in offshore conditions.
All HammerCats are 100% epoxy composite construction with a standard carbon fiber hardtop. We use top of the line materials and the latest technology to ensure a strong and stiff hull.
