Gegenüber dem HAPPY CAT EVOLUTION hat der HURRICANE:

  • The HURRICANE has longer hulls than the EVO, making it even faster.
  • The hulls have an even larger diameter, offering even greater buoyancy.
  • Two reinforcing bow braces stiffen the hulls’ bows against even the strongest wave impacts.
  • The new steering system has two fixed lock-in positions instead of uphaul and kicking straps.
  • The mast foot ball joint optimises overall mainsail profile with easy mast rotation and also enhances propulsion.
  • The rotation limiter enables precise adjustments to mast rotation.
  • The six-fold roller block reduces main sheet tractive effort 6:1 and enables “sailing by hand”, even in stronger winds.
  • With the 3:1 jib halyard pulley, the headsail can be set with ease and maximum rigging rigidity achieved.
  • In addition, the HURRICANE also offers storage facilities in the stern for considerable luggage and a rear-mounted engine. (*)

EVO or HURRICANE?

The HURRICANE is the right choice for you if:

  • you require the maximum possible speed.
  • you need more storage space on board (e.g. for increased load capacity when cruising).
  • you want to fit a motor behind the stern canopy.
  • the price-weight ratio isn’t a consideration for you.
  • you always want the most modern and valuable model.

SPORTY SAILING

The HURRICANE is designed in such a way that it can withstand even the highest demands!

The Wavepearcer hulls with a convex water line along with the rigging coordinated with it allow mono-hull sailing even at a wind intensity of 3. Equipped with the trapezoid (*), amazing speeds can be reached at speeds above 4 Beaufort. And if capsizing should occur, a masthead float (*) prevents turtling and along with the capsize line (*) it is easy to put the boat back upright.

An HURRICANE is particularly of interest to active or former surfers. It has special advantages compared to a surfboard:

  • Sit comfortably instead of standing
  • Do not stand in the water - barely get wet
  • Stay on board even when the wind is abating
  • Cover broad distances
  • More sporty with people on board.

The HURRICANE - a speedy boat - especially for everyone who expects a high level of performance.

TRIPSSAILS

The HURRICANE is not only suitable for the beach or one-day sailing excursions but also for long-haul sailing trips.
Here a lot of space is usually required for luggage and equipment.

With a foredeck cover (*), the useful space can be increased by half. The cover is attached on the standard cross bar. It is even possible to climb onto it, sit and lie on it.

Mit dem Heckgepäcksverdeck (*) und der Heckstange (*) kann Gepäck auch am Heck verstaut werden.

In order to be able to sit very comfortably for hours, there is a cushion (*), which can be set in terms of seat hardness.

The Wavepiercer hulls ensure that the HURRICANE has enough buoyancy - even when it is heavily loaded on the foredeck - away from the tip and the foredeck does not dive down.

A standard commercial 2-person dome tent can be erected onto the trampoline on which you can get a restful sleep without contact with the ground, e.g. on a rocky surface.

Why not just try a multi-day sailing trip near the coast? You can go home by car or public transport.

UNLIMITED MOBILITY

can fit into almost any car

A particularly important aspect of HAPPY CAT is mobility.

The catamaran does not need a trailer nor an expensive berth. It is designed to occupy no more than 183 cm in any direction. That means the entire boat can fit into almost any car. If your car boot can’t fit it, you can always transport
the boat in a roof cargo box.

Because of its compact size, the HAPPY CAT is very popular piece of sports equipment among car and RV drivers alike. It fits easily into an RV and it’s a very fun activity on a camping trip. At home, you only need a small area for its storage.

Thanks to some technical innovations like the as the mast foot hinge, the HURRICANE can also be transported by a single person.

Assembly takes about 40 minutes by yourself. With practice, two people can bring this number down to
30 minutes.

Transporting the boat from the shore to water can be done alone thanks to the small slipping wheels (*) attached to the frame or with the help of a Happy Cat trolley (*).

THE HOLIDAY DREAM FROM THE SUITCASE

Transport in the car
Transport in the caravan
Fast assembly

To travel and be mobile is the desire of our generation. The same goes for sailing.

To get to know new areas and discover new sailing areas.

This is possible any time using a car, caravan or by public transport.

And the HAPPY CAT HURRICANE is always with you. No other boat has so many benefits:

Thanks to the small packaging volume, storage at home is really simple, because there is easily enough space for a HAPPY CAT in the cellar or attic.

The low weight makes the carrying on land by 2 persons very easy.

The transport is carried out in 4 bags.

The dismantled catamaran can also be transported in a 60 cm transport box on the car rack. (observe car regulations).

With a bit of exercise, the installation can be completed in about 30  minutes and the  dismantling in about 15 minutes. (observe installation instructions).

LOVE OF ADVENTURE

Discover distant beaches together with friends!

The HURRICANE is also perfectly suited for trips of several days.

The large trampoline surface, the bow deck and rear luggage deck provide enough space for four adults and equipment. The stern is capable of as much as 3 HP even when sailing.

The large trampoline is spacious enough to accommodate two adults in a tent.

Because of its resilient hulls, you can dock nearly anywhere without causing damage.

TOP QUALITY AND SAFETY - HIGH-TECH FRAME AND RIG

High-tech frame and rig

All special frame and rig sections consist of a high strength aluminium alloy and are anodized to be seawater resistant.

The centreboard,helm and fittings are made of high quality stainless steel and are stained to prevent aggressive saltwater corrosion.

HIGH-TECH RUBBER FLOATS

3-layer boat skin

The floats are made of 3-layer EPDM / natural rubber boat skin that has been tried and tested 100,000 times.

This guarantees optimum airtightness, top fire resistance and a long life cycle.

HIGHEST OPERATING PRESSURE = BEST DRIVING PROPERTIES

Thanks to the high operating pressure (0.3 bar), the floats are given maximum stability.

This significantly improves the solidity of the longitudinal direction wand torsion and makes it easier to stray the course.

7 -YEAR BOAT SKIN AND 2-YEAR TOTAL WARRANTY

In addition to the 7-years boat skin warranty, there is also a 2-year total warranty on the entire boat (the requirement is that the warranty provisions are observed).

DURABLE AND SUSTAINABLE

A HAPPY CAT cannot be beaten when it comes to sustainability. If looked after correctly, the boat will last for years. At the end of its lifecycle, all components can be recycled and the environmentally friendly rubber material used
to generate long-distance heat.

The construction of the HAPPY CAT HURRICANE conforms to ISO 6185 category VI governing manufacture according to EU regulations.

Approval to category C permits the use on large lakes, coastal waters, wind force to Beaufort 6 and respective waves.

The boat is supplied with the declaration of conformity as per EU regulation 2013/53/EU. That dispenses with complicated procedures regarding individual approval for the use of an engine.
