LIGHTWAVE Catamarans

“We cannot discover new oceans unless we have the courage to lose sight of the shore” – Faulkner

Lightwave Catamarans cater for the adventurous sailor with exotic locations in mind.
Centralised weight dispersion, excellent beam/ length ratio, and impressive bridgedeck clearance are critical design factors to the proven success of the Lightwave sailing catamarans.

The long, sleek hulls provide extensive storage and tankage areas. The deck layout and sail systems are configured for ease of handling while shorthanded.
Offering greater comfort in the ocean, relatively fine, seakindly hulls provide ample reserve buoyancy to carry a live on board payload.

Lightwave Yachts offer a choice between fixed keels and daggerboards.

Lightwave Catamarans are fibreglass composite cruising catamarans with modern style and fitout, desirable performance characteristics and extended live aboard capabilities. The construction of these exceptional vessels, from the systems integration, engineering, together with all interior joinery and furnishings, fibreglass construction and fittings, is designed and built to world class boat building standards using materials of the highest quality.

Priding itself as an industry leader in multihull design & building, Lightwave Yachts is at the forefront of new technology releases in the arena of superior local and International marine products. The choice and specification of all equipment and fittings is to be made with consideration to practical, safe and functional seamanship, which complements the state-of–the-art design and processes incorporated into the construction of every Lightwave.
