About us

Jan de Boer Catamarans was founded in 1976 as the European importer of (beach) catamarans. In early 2000 Chris Minnee - with great passion for catamarans from an early age - took over Jan de Boer Catamarans and has developed himself as “multihull” specialist since then.

Based on more than 40 years of national and international experience in the field of engineering / mechanical engineering, marketing & sales and yacht-building, with an extensive international network of leading naval architects and catamaran shipyards, Chris Minnee is your designated partner to advise and guide you in your orientation and decision-making in the purchase process of your catamaran or trimaran.

Specific wishes and requirements regarding the intended sailing area, comfort, technical equipment, desired layout and number of berths are essential when making a good advice for a client's dream-yacht.

Since the early 1990s Jan de Boer Catamarans has mediated in the purchase of leading major catamaran brands with dimensions from 40 to 100 ft.

If you are interested in "Custom - built" cruising catamaran yachts from 60 - 200 ft, we can be of service to you through our participation in CATAMARIS, a unique collaboration of 3 highly experienced specialists in the field of catamarans.

Since 2003, Jan de Boer Catamarans has also been closely involved in the development and construction of commercial multihulls:

  • fast catamarans for passenger water transport

  • special catamarans for - among other things - supplying windfarms at sea
