2020 HammerCat 45
HammerCats: the next generation power catamarans: fast, elegant and fuel efficient.
The HammerCat 45 is the second model of a new generation of power-catamarans. Built by CarboTech Composites & Hammer Yachts, the HammerCat 45 features a sweeping “Carolina bow” and a lines that make her look going fast while sitting in a marina or at anchor.
The HammerCat 45 combines her good looks and sleek lines above the waterline with a very efficient and modern underwater body, featuring a stepped hull and a high tunnel for optimal performance.
Available in a variety of lay-out's with focus on sportfishing, diving, day boat or superyacht tender.
The HammerCat 45 offers you the choice to use the vessel to take your fishing buddies on a trip one week, do a family outing for 20 people the next weekend, and take your wife for an anniversary weekend all in one boat!
Seating for 15? Fishing? Diving? Barbeque? Cabin & head? You don’t have to choose, all of the above are a reality on the new HammerCat 45.
HammerCats are build as "semi-custom" with a wide variety of options / electronics / lay-outs.

HammerCat 45 lay out versions offered:
Lay out versions as show in pictures.
-Other center console power catamarans use a “quad engine” set up on their similar sized models and they weight up to 28,000 Lbs. The HammerCat 45 is build out of epoxy with vacuum fused e-glass, resulting in the “wet weight” of the vessel at 16,000 Lbs. This means that we can use half the horsepower compared to our competition and still get the same performance, yet ensuring the strength and durability required for offshore sport fishing.
-With twin 425 HP engines the top end will be >50 mph
-The HammerCat 45 is unsinkable: 60 cubic feet of XPS foam ensures that the HammerCat 35 will remain afloat if you hit a container / underwater object at 40 knots
-The carbon fiber hardtop of the HammerCat 45 measures 11’ x 16’ and weights just 250 Lbs., so there is no weight high up which can influence the ride in offshore conditions. The hardtop is much larger & wider than on most other sport-fish-center consoles so you and your crew are protected from the sun / elements.
-The HammerCat is built for longevity using construction techniques normally only seen on offshore racing yachts.
-Epoxy has three to five times the flexural strength of polyester/ vinylester resins making the HammerCat stronger, more durable, lighter and thus more agile, seaworthy, fuel-efficient and more fun to drive. Epoxy resin is 25 percent stronger than the polyester resin used in most boatbuilding, with higher elongation properties for greater durability.
-The construction methods and materials employed by Hammer Yachts create stronger, yet lighter hulls that require less horsepower than the competitors and enjoy far better fuel efficiency getting up to twice the miles per gallon of similar boats at speeds of 25-50 knots.
-The HammerCat 45 has classic timeless lines with her Carolina bow, flared hull and great curves.
