The Atlantic 42 is not in production, but it can be built on a custom basis.  Contact Chris White for more information.  And check our brokerage listings, occasionally one is for sale.

The A42 is the smallest of the Atlantic cruising cat line, and has a loyal following.  Owners love her ease of handling, efficient use of space and ocean-going capability. The pilot house, forward cockpit, excellent galley and sleeping cabins are classic Atlantic Cat.   About 17 have been built and are still sailing.   

"Chris White's design is brilliant. Unlike all other catamaran designs I know of, Chris's Atlantic cats feature a waist-high cockpit forward of the pilot house and right behind the mast that you walk into from the pilot house through a full-size door. Catalyst's pilot house is the perfect complement to its forward cockpit. Now that I've been living in it for a while, I can say it is the best "room" I've ever owned, a combination of living room, study, office, observation perch, and (its designed functions) inside steering station and navigation station."  –  Sib Reppert aboard "Catalyst" in the S. Atlantic, June 2001

"Just a brief thank you note to you and the whole crew at Bongers. I am absolutely delighted with Traveling Light; I'm sure there is no boat that could have made our trip easier or safer. The feeling of confidence which one has even when banging along at 12 knots has to be experienced to be believed. Tim says he will never be able to sail a monohull again."  –  Randall Griepp, April 2002
