HAPPY CAT INFLATABLE CATAMARANS

Austria Flag EXPERTLY HANDMADE
IN AUSTRIA.

Happy Cat inflatable catamarans are lightweight, fast, versatile and extremely portable. There are other portable sailboats on the market, but none perform as well as the Happy Cat line of sailboats. They are faster, boat-for-boat, than any other portable sailboat on the market and the Hurricane Carbon has seen speeds greater than 20 knots!

Happy Cat inflatable catamarans are dynamic on the water, and can handle anything from high speed races, to all-day family fun. The ultimate open water journey. Happy Cat boats are constructed from the highest quality materials like eco-friendly rubber hulls instead of plastic, and anodized aluminum frames and mast. The innovative materials and attention to detail will ensure your Happy Cat is built to outlast many adventures for many years to come.

Innovative features that make Happy Cat one of the finest inflatable boat companies in the world.

Designed with performance in mind, the Happy Cat’s inverted bows pierce through waves with little resistance while also allowing for maximum waterline length. The rotating mast allows you to amp up the power like any good high-performance beach cat. The innovative performance sailing designs ensure that when you’re at the helm of a Happy Cat, you’re in for a one-of-a-kind sailing experience.

Solo Sailing
Adventures

Sailing solo on a beach cat can be tricky, as you typically need enough weight to counter the winds. The Neo is the perfect portable replacement for a high performance sailing dinghy with similar handling characteristics. This is our go-to recommendation for any sailor looking for high octane solo sailing without being overpowered.

Happy Cat History Image Happy Cat History Image With the purchase of the Semperit inflatable boat production in 1986, the Grabner company also took over the production of the first dismountable catamaran – the Semperit Kat. This catamaran has been in production since the 1960s.

HAPPY CAT

SAILING INNOVATION SINCE THE 1960s

Since The 1960s

With the purchase of the Semperit inflatable boat production in 1986, the Grabner company also took over the production of the first demountable catamaran – the Semperit Kat. This catamaran has been in production since the 1960s.

 

Who We Are

In 1986, Grabner purchased Semperit, which included taking over the production of the first demountable catamaran, the Semperit Kat, a boat that was eventually renamed to the one we know and love today, the Happy Cat.

The Happy Cat Story

In production since the 1960s, Happy Cat’s innovations are backed by decades of research and insights from recreational and professional sailors alike. The first catamarans were made of wood, but today’s models include parts made of aluminum and rubber, providing a lightweight and optimized sailing experience.

The most recent upgrade of the Happy Cat Evolution and Hurricane to a high-tech carbon mast shows that the innovative DNA of the Grabner brand will continue to push what’s possible in the inflatable catamaran space.

The Finest Handmade Inflatable Boats

Happy Cat boats are made from high quality, eco-friendly materials, and are handmade in the Grabner factory in Austria. The catamaran boats and hulls are made of a special EPDM/natural rubber boat skin that is easy to repair, The inner coating of natural rubber offers maximum airtightness so the air stays in the hose longer and you can do more sailing, and less pumping.
 

Happy Cat Story Image

It’s one thing for a boat of Happy Cat’s caliber to fit in two to three bags, it’s another to only need 30-40 minutes to set up and hit the water. Once you’re on the water, the right conditions can produce speeds of over 20 knots. A piece of paradise that only a sailor knows. Clear skies and a strong wind await.
