What To Expect Onboard: Kiwi Cat was designed and built in New Zealand by ESPN TV Network for the filming of the 2000 America’s Cup and later, used again in the 2003 America’s Cup for its extreme stability, maneuverability, safety and comfort. Since 2005, the Dodsons have cruised Kiwi Cat to Alaska twice and spent 6 years cruising the Pacific Northwest with family and friends. Now, the Kiwi Cat is at home in the San Francisco Bay and Napa Valley. The Kiwi Cat is a privately owned vessel. It has twin-diesel Yanmars (230 HP/4LH-STE fuel injected-turbo-charged) which sets this vessel apart from all others of equal length. Built and designed by one of New Zealand’s most prolific catamaran designer/engineers, Alan Wright and Angelo Lavronos of New Zealand. The hull was designed for 3’ to 5’ seas to provide efficiency and enhanced platform stability for the 1999 and 2003 New Zealand America’s Cup Series. This vessel carried the Gyro-cameras for the Louis Vuitton series and AC finals providing excellent efficiency, stability, speed, and decreased roll. The camera crew enjoyed entertaining in the spacious design layout with comfort for all aboard and is now being used for private cruises on the Napa River and occasional transfers to/from San Francisco to wine country.
