Multimarine Manufacturing and Ben Rogerson Yacht Design introduce the Dazcat 1895.

11 March 2020


The new Dazcat 1895 blends an ultra-lightweight, thoroughbred cruising and racing catamaran with lavish contemporary interiors and creature comforts.

This new design is the latest creation from Dazcat in collaboration with Ben Rogerson Yacht Design (BRYD). Together the team have developed a new 60’ class racer-cruiser with the ideal pedigree for the Caribbean circuit, RORC offshore and performance world cruising.

The exterior hull design is rooted in the Dazcat DNA, incorporating traditional features along with fresh, modernised exterior lines. The signature coach roof and window profile transitions seamlessly into the assertive, aero-hydro-dynamically profiled hull and deck lines.

On deck, the Dazcat 1895 is optimised for shorthanded and fully crewed sailing. To maintain total control at high speeds, powered rewind winches for the main traveller, mainsheet, self-tacking jib give the helm fingertip control and the dagger boards are set up with on line drivers for easy deployment.


The helm is positioned with clear all-round views, and the twin wheel, direct carbon-drive steering provides ultimate response and control.

Ben Rogerson comments, “Working closely with Dazcat Design we set out to create a cutting edge 60’ design. We wanted to draw on the performance and design principles pioneered by Darren Newton in the development of the Dazcat range over the past 32 years.

The 1895 supports a powerful, yet controllable sail set with the ergonomically developed deck layout, enabling short-handed, fast family cruising and fully crewed, high adrenaline racing excursions.”

Exterior cruising comforts include an outside seating area, with a removable table for racing, covered by a carbon bimini decked with solar panels and a rain water harvesting system.

Below decks the Dazcat can be uniquely tailored to each client’s personal preferences, colours and materials.

The main saloon in the offshore sports cruiser model, shown as an example, provides plenty of spaces to chill out. A large U-shaped seating area and table can be converted into a day bed to sprawl out or relax with the family. The ethos behind the spacious, airy open plan design is to link the flow from area to area, giving a sense of light and free movement. The breakfast bar leads to a lower galley in the port hull which allows easy and contained food preparation, as well as full interaction with guests in the saloon. Galley options include a large worktop, built in fridge/freezer, oven, hob and microwave, with plenty of storage space.

Beside the galley, a double berth and sail stowage area sit forwards in the port hull, and in the aft quarter is a skipper/crew cabin with two single berths and adjoining heads and shower.

From the main saloon you step down into the starboard hull to the central navigation area with a navigator bench/day bed.  To the aft of this, there’s a spacious owners’ cabin which offers ample storage and an en-suite. A twin bunk room for guests or race crew members sits forward of the nav station, with its own heads and sail locker.

There are a multitude of interior styling options on offer, in different colours, along with various fabrics and finishes, including cloth and leather, wood or aluminium to create a modern and fresh space.

Integral to the values of Multimarine is the use of high-quality construction techniques, using the latest infusion technology with carbon/glass hybrid and foam core composite to create the best possible stiffness to weight ratio. Meaning, vastly improved power translation and high tolerances that are repeatable from boat to boat. The mouldings are produced by female CNC tooling to provide a yacht that is capable of far exceeding the competition.

An all carbon mast and boom, with hay racks and carbon sails are specified ensuring the rig is very light and very stiff. A top racing specification Antal mast track system and halyard locks are used to aid higher load sail handling. The spinnaker tack line is mounted to carbon spinnaker pole with the classic Dazcat V.
