This production catamaran is one of our most popular Dazcat models. Combining sleek good looks with phenomenal power and a high level of comfort, it is easy to see why she is popular with cruising and racing enthusiasts alike. Why choose between them when you can have it all?

 

Whatever you want from your catamaran - racing inshore or offshore, cruising locally or heading on out into the wide blue world, the Dazcat 1195 can outperform its rivals for speed, comfort and good times ... The 1195R has a taller carbon rig for racing.

Each Dazcat 1195 is hand crafted by composite engineers and boat builders who understand the exacting requirement needed to produce a very strong but lightweight structure. Combined with clever design and material processing, this makes this model, and all other Dazcats, half the weight of a standard production catamaran, with the strength to race offshore. Only high quality materials and equipment are used.

 

Materials include protective 65PA gel coat, Isothalic resin with multi-axial and uni-directional engineered fabrics. Core material is PVC foam for the hull structure, wet-deck, bridgedeck canopy and bulkheads. Interior finishes include gel coat, painted, timber, and lined surfaces in the hulls.

 

Carbon reinforcements for the bridgedeck and beam bulkheads, and Kevlar hull reinforcements.

Female vacuum moulded. Carbon daggerboards, rudder stocks and foils, and spinnaker pole and seagull striker as standard - new for 2013.

It had to be sailed easily single-handed and, most importantly, the boat had to retain its sailing performance even with a full complement of passengers and all their cruising kit on board.

 

There were four predecessors to the final design and on each boat we developed our ideas. Most of the research was done on our own Dazcat 1150 Drama Queen, which has the same hulls. The design for the prototype 1195 was a collaboration between the owner Rupert Kidd, Derick Reynolds, Nic Bailey, DQ’s owner Simon Baker and Darren Newton. Rupert had sailed everything from racing trimarans to 50’ Outremers around the world and he wanted a boat that could do it all, but be a lot easier to handle, and so the D1195 Sueños was born, and launched in 2010, in time for that year’s Shetland Round Britain and Ireland Race.

 

In 2012, having two to build, we undertook a design review and, as we wanted to push both the performance and improve the interior even further, we made a few small changes which are now standard; these include the new carbon bowsprit and V-style seagull striker with synthetic rope bridle, which allowed us to slip the forestay position forward and add half a metre to its length, increasing the jib, reacher and spinnaker sizes, giving us a little more power.

 

We made new tooling for the dagger boards and rudders, which are built in carbon. The rudder system is now cable-steered, to increase the feel of the boat, making it very responsive, and the full-carbon rudder stocks and blades are semi-balanced with endplate foils giving a fantastic feel to the helm that I’ve not experienced on any other boat.

 

Selmar Spijker, recent addition to the Dazcat design team, was tasked with the review of the styling and interior. With his input we have re-profiled the side and forward saloon windows, creating a slightly more aggressive look as well as increasing the view forward form the saloon. Inside we have also built full tooling for the interior units to reduce weight and improve finish, creating a very modern, contemporary style. We also used some lightweight timber finishes and doors for the locker storage, which really sets the interior off nicely against exposed carbon and painted finishes.  The main saloon door has also been changed to a sliding carbon framed Perspex door so it stows away nicely and looks very elegant.
