ABOUT US

 

We've been creating world-class cruising and racing catamarans since 1986. Production boats, custom builds from professional yards, and numerous home-built boats, some of which have matched the best professional yards for quality and attention to detail.

 

The technology of our catamaran construction kits has evolved in that time and we're proud to have been part of that evolution. Raku Catamarans draws on our experience and the skills and dedication of the professionals we've worked with. 

 

The designs, the people, and the range of resources associated with Raku Catamarans have been brought together to enable you to build a truly modern, high-performance cruising catamaran under your own command or totally hands-off by using the services of a professional yard.

 

Our work is design. Our passion is for elegant, efficient sailing equipment. Our mission is to put together the information that transforms ideas and concepts into real machines that enable memorable sailing experiences.

 

Our kit constructions allow you to select a sailing design that suits your style and budget. We also help you find a builder, or the technologies you need if you're constructing it yourself.
