Aspen Catamarans

Sept 29, 2020

Aspen Power Catamarans has completed the development and just launched an all-new 35’ Outboard Power Proa Catamaran. The new Aspen C108 expands on the company’s patented hull design featuring both non-symmetrical hulls and power that provide exceptional efficiency, tracking, and performance in all sea conditions.

Inspired in part by current adventure seeking Aspen owners who wanted the maximum in an eco-friendly cruiser that could also be easily moved to new cruising grounds, the Aspen team created the C108. By increasing the beam to 10’8” they kept the overall length under 40’ which greatly expanded the interior accommodation space while still allowing the boat to be trailered. A combined boat and trailer towing weight of approximately 12,500 pounds (Aluminum trailer) means the C108 can be easily towed by a standard ¾ ton or larger pickup truck. Ideal for snowbirds, Aspen owners have tremendous flexibility whether simply hauling out for the winter, or transporting their C108 to new and different cruising areas.

Aspen has created an expansive layout for the New C108. The large new salon has been finished with fine teak by Aspen’s experienced craftsman and has 30% more livable space than previous Aspen models. Full height wrap around Solar Guard windows provide exceptional visibility while underway from the 5 person C-shaped dinette and the twin Bentley helm seats, that keep both owners and guests comfortable. The 12ft long galley includes an oven-stove combo, microwave, stainless steel sink, and multiple Burmese teak drawers. The cabin space is unparalleled for a boat this size and includes three private cabins. Multiple hatches and portholes bring in ventilation and light when not running heat or AC. An expansive head with shower, and a master suite complete with a King-sized bed, showcase accommodations typically found on much larger vessels.
