The Award winning R5 Catamaran is the perfect size for extended blue water cruising or a family live-aboard. The R5 is made of truly sustainable and circular materials such as recycled aluminium, FSC certified cork decking, leather-replacements from pineapple leaves and biological fabrics. And all-electric too.

The yacht is designed in two versions: the open cockpit and the closed cockpit live-aboard version, the R5-LA. The main difference is the sliding door that is placed further aft in the LA version. It creates an interior saloon space that allows for unique layout options which can be tailored to your needs.

Vaan operations are based on the principles of the circular economy. The yachts are mostly built from recycled materials and a Vaan yacht is almost completely recyclable itself. The hull, for example, is over 50% made of recycled aluminium such as old window panes, traffic signs, and number plates. Some parts of the catamaran even contain over 75% re-used materials.

The Vaan Catamaran serie will also feature two bigger versions, the R6 and R8.
