It was 20003 when we began developing our products. Being passionate sailers we wanted to construct our own special sailing boat. It should not only be easy to transport but also should it have an excellent sailing quality. As catamarans are able to sail high speeds we decided on this category of boats. We began with the construction, produced a prototype and tried that one out in the water which seemed to be shaping up well and looked promising. Soon we started to refine all the details and give the catamaran it’s modern design. The only thing missing then was it’s name. But that did not take us very long to find the perfect name smartkat which is put together by the words smart and a german short term for catamaran. 20006 we finally founded the smartkat boatbuilding and marketing distribution. We started to introduce our special construction at big fairs as at Interboot in Friedrichshafen and Boot in Düsseldorf and we could experience much awaken interest for smartkat. Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung reported about smartkat as well as various television networks.
