Dazcats make you smile
There's something special about them that creates the feel-good factor. Perhaps it's the fact that every aspect of the boat is expertly and precisely hand-engineered, based on design principles drawn from personal experience to develop a boat that just works as it should - a creation in understated perfection.
At 42.5 feet (12.79m) and a length to waterline beam ratio of 13-1 but still weighing-in at 5 tonnes, the Dazcat 1295 is a truly comfortable and elegant family cruiser that has been optimised for performance sailing. She has proven that she can not only provide safe, comfortable and enjoyable family time but also win on the RORC and MOCRA inshore and offshore race circuits.
The design of this boat has been developed using direct race experience. At Dazcat Design, we believe that applying the experience and research gained from racing also makes for a better cruising boat. Typically of our Dazcats, the shallow draft allows you to venture where others can’t, opening up your cruising possibilities and ability to escape to quieter spots. All Dazcat boats, while built to take the severe punishment of racing, are combined with the signature design-philosophy of both comfort and great looks. This along with her comfortable, spacious accommodation and ease of handling whether shorthanded or fully crewed, make her the ultimate racer-cruiser.
To reduce component weights the boat features carbon parts including the beam, bulkheads, rudders, dagger boards, bimini, spinnaker pole, with options for mast, steering wheels and davits. Engines are shaft driven Nanni 21hp motors with a pair of 100-liter fuel tanks giving approximately a 300m mile range. These are centralised to optimise weight distribution for comfort and performance.
Internally there are three double cabins with a central galley in the starboard hull, overlooking the saloon and across to the nav. station. The saloon seating and table convert to a day bed or fourth double.
The electric flush head and shower are placed forward in the port hull. There is full 1.95m headroom in the forward heads and showers.
Internal finishing is carefully hand-faired by skilled craftsmen and is complemented with trims and linings of your choice.
The Dazcat 1295 is a very exciting boat and competitively priced for the high standard of construction, personalisation, equipment and specifications. Available for delivery at the end of 2021
