Welcome to Barramundi
Building light and strong catamarans, which sails well and can confront the high seas in all safety is no easy task. Experience is needed, thinking, designing, strong ideas, lots of expertise in a lot of different fields.
A lot of man-hours and first-class materials. We decided to base our catamarans on the designs of Erik Lerouge and on our own building experiences and knowhow that we also enquired from third parties. To acquire that experience we worked either in close cooperation with others, either we got it by acquiring other yards. We build a dedicated boat-yard in a country where labour is affordable.
This to be able to accept no compromise and finish the boats at a quality that would be impossible to achieve for that budget in Europe..
Our People form a team, They are not a bunch of individual labourers just hired for short periods, but young talented people carefully chosen an trained to do a good job on long term contract Today we employ already nearly 70 persons, and there number is growing every month. We made difficult choices, Not always the obvious ones, or the most easy ones, but we thought them over and over, and discussed the problems, until we where sure they where the right choices.
These choices which have to unable us to build, different and better but still for a reasonable price. We build for clients that wants to sail the world, be safe under whatever condition and those who want to sail faster then the others. We discussed for hours and hours which our clients certainly when the clients take the time to visit us.
They put their everyday experience into the boats, which help to make it catamarans which are really made for what they are going to be used for: for travelling, pleasure and adventure, for living and sailing.
