TOUCHWATER Sharp
          V-hull sport catamaran made of aluminium

For everybody loving the unique V-hull feeling in the waves:

The  TOUCHWATER Sharp

The modified V-hull profile of the TW Sharp provides the required buoyancy also in challenging conditions. And the slender wave piercing bows enable extra smooth ride.



Single-hand rides are greatest fun with the una rig.
The robust underwater hull without fins makes handling the boat extra safe.

TOUCHWATER Nano
          Compact single-hand beach catamaran with una rig

Concepted to be extra manageable, the TW Nano is sporty fun at the beach. Increased planing characteristics of the semi-planing hulls allow for a very compact design. The adapted geometry provides the required uplift and special agility.


Quick manoeuvres are easy with the una rig and the boat is handled almost as flexible as a sailing dinghy.

The wave piercing aluminium hulls are equipped with robust bionic shaped fins.

To achieve extra stability the hulls are designed with the same material thickness as the larger TOUCHWATER cats. That's why the TW Nano isn't lightweight but provides extra strength for hard conditions.

By its small size the boat can be kept space-saving and transported by trailer easily.
