The Custom 107 Catamaran project was started in Mannheim, Germany in 2016. It was a lifelong dream of a knowledgeable sailor to build a Catamaran that he could circumnavigate the world, and spend extended periods of time in the north and south polar regions, in safety with his family and a small crew. He chose to have the hull built at Hage & Knapp in Germany. Hage & Knapp is recognized as one of the most advanced welding companies in Europe that builds to exacting tolerances and would follow the strict classification requirements from DNV GL. The keel was laid in 2016 with progress to continue at a pace that was comfortable with the client. In 2017, the main engines, generators, bow thruster and additional engineering components were installed and protected to ensure their safety during the build process. The global pandemic halted the project until now. The client has decided it is best to sell the project now, so a new owner can work with the current design team, or bring in a new design team, to complete the project to their preferences.
Potential buyers would have the option to launch the vessel now and have it delivered to any shipyard of their choice for the completion of the project. LORIMA rigging experts has a complete rigging package available for immediate delivery for this vessel (not included in the asking price).
