The ICECAT 61 was born from the cooperation between ICE YACHTS and the Engineer
Enrico Contreas, father of the legendary catamarans Mattia and absolutely one of the most
experienced designers of catamarans.
Together Ice Yachts and Contreas began the Design and the Development of a new
generation of catamarans, and the ICECAT 61, a brand new multihull, characterized by
very pure and efficient line. This represents a complete re-design of the legendary "
SBANDATO" , the Mattia 56 that years ago, amazed everyone for the speed and
manouvrability, and was absolutely the reference for a cat of that size.
The lines leave little to the fashion of the moment, such as the bows completely inclined
backwards. We believe that a boat, which is in anycase a cruising boat, although fast
cruising boat, requires a convenient area in the bow, for example in order to recover a
mooring rope from a buoy without going crazy and this is the philosophy of our cat.
