VAAN R4 - The latest 42 masterpiece
A completely new brand, VAAN catamarans are high quality Dutch/EU built sailing catamarans that offer genuine pleasure of sailing performance.

Unlike most cats, the Vaan R4 does not have a large, fixed roof over the cockpit. Instead, we created a bimini that can be installed and removed in a matter of minutes. People in the cockpit and at the helm can be protected from the sun when desired. But for colder regions, steering in the sun is now also possible. It makes the R4 great for the Mediterranean, but also for a trip up north.

The R4 is designed for active sailors who are looking for more space than a monohull offers. The cockpit and saloon are at the same level, and there is very little heeling. Your guests, friends and family can enjoy all the comfort, luxury and space while you are at the helm enjoying their company.

The design of the R4 is based on circular principles from the start. It is mostly made of recyclable materials and it is almost completely recyclable itself. The hull is made of more than 50% recycled aluminium like old window frames, traffic signs and license plates. Some parts contain even more than 75% reused materials. Aluminium also has an excellent track record for its strength, safety and flexibility.

The Vaan R4 is all-electric, including the propulsion. You can choose between 2 Torqeedo FP10¿s or 2 OceanVolt SD15¿s, which offers hydro-generation allowing you to recharge the batteries while sailing:
