Pedigree Cats Catamaran

Let us custom build your dream yacht

Welcome to Pedigree Cat Catamarans, Inc.

Mission Statement
Pedigree Catamarans will strive to be the best builder of custom power catamarans and sail catamarans, utilizing foam core with modern materials and procedures of composite construction.  

Partners
Gary Habersetzer started building multihulls in 1975 in Washington. 

In the late 70's, the first Airex foam core Trimaran in the USA, a TriStar 42' "Amenity" was built by Gary.  The designer, Ed Horstman was as excited as he was to build a composite Multihull and ended up writing an instruction manual based on Airex information in conjunction with ABS standards.  At that time, there was no one in the USA that was building Multihulls.

Before Gary finished "Amenity", designers and others were asking if he would build another Multihull, and hence was building composite multihulls.  Gary decided to continue building custom, one-offs and would only build from proven Multihull designers that would work with clients to give them exactly what they wanted, inside and out.  He has never built the same yacht twice and the clients actually get to design what their dream will look like.  They work with the designer to ensure structural requirements as well as weight and balance are as structurally necessary.

 He and his wife Kelly, and their felines, relocated to Raymond Washington in the early 1990's.

Pedigree Catamarans still uses Airex today and for now 39 years of building custom composite Multihulls in the USA.  We still use only proven materials, mostly made in the USA and that are ABYC, USCG, and EC standards compliant with accepted methods of construction.
