Hull Contruction & Design

The Africat 420 is characterized by an 8" wave breaker running the full length of the catamaran hull.  This design feature creates a comfortable ride and reduces the pounding in choppy waters by ensuring there are no flat surfaces between the two pontoons.  The keel is molded as part of the hull construction and, being at the lowest point, protects the props and rudders when underway in shallow waters.

The Africat 420 is constructed of the highest Vinylester and Polyester Resins. Layered materials are bound to the hull core through an adhesive process using vacuum-bagging, ensuring elimination of trapped air. This process creates a stronger and more unified core. Additional layers are then applied, particularly below the waterline, for added strength.  All bulkheads are vacuum-infused using Divinycell foam and excess resin removed for a strong yet light bulkhead.
