'Ohana (meaning "family" in Hawaiian) is a one-off custom designed sailing catamaran. She was professionally built in Holland to the highest standards by M&M Boatbuilders. She's designed to travel the world safely, sustainably and in comfort and she has already sailed half way round the world to reach her current base in Auckland, New Zealand, via extensive exploration of the Caribbean and Pacific islands.

Above decks 'Ohana has a very simple sail plan and clean lines. Her wide decks give plenty of space to walk around and lounge in safety and comfort.  Her cockpit is built for offshore sailing and is comfortable and secure with plenty of seating.

Below decks 'Ohana is clean and modern.  Entering from the cockpit the first thing one notices is the space! She is wide. The main saloon features a large seating area - the perfect spot to entertain, read, play games or enjoy a large meal. The navigation station is located just forward to starboard and most of her operations can be controlled from the comfort of this interior station. There's a fully equipped galley (kitchen) with gas cooker, oven, fridges, microwave and everything else you would expect. All of this is up in the main saloon area with fantastic views across the water on all sides.

Down below there are two large staterooms with full queen size beds (one en-suite), another double cabin and a single bunk. There are two showers, two toilets and a well equipped workshop. The mechanical spaces are located in two separate engine rooms at the rear of the boat.  Ohana carries everything she needs to travel the world right down to making her own fresh water! She has air conditioning to keep you cool through summer in the tropics and there's powerful heating to make sure we stay cosy on expeditions to colder climates.

Construction

Built to high standards for light weight and strength with considerable use of high tech composite materials.  The hulls, bridgedeck, coachroof and bulkheads are cored with divinycell foam.  Epoxy resin is used throughout with multi-axial, uni-directional and bi-axial fiberglass cloth for strength.  Kevlar is used throughout on both hulls and rudders with carbon fibre as well to reinforce high stress areas and all stringers.  Ohana is light and tough!
