The Catana 431 was designed by naval architect Christophe Barreau and the Catana design office Catana S.A. of Cedex, France. It was introduced in 1998 and is currently marketed as the Catana 43 Ocean Class. The model has been popular in Europe and the Caribbean and a few of these models remain on the charter market as well. ''Sailing a catamaran is about comfortable sailing, which means no heeling or rolling. It is about pitching control and smooth passage in heavy seas. An excellent beam/length ratio and hulI inclination give a CATANA outstanding static and dynamic stability. The hulls are tilted outwards on a Catana, thus no more heeling.''

The design of the Catana 431 leaves nothing to chance - every aspect of safety and comfort has been thoroughly thought out. The salon and chart table occupy the forward part of the bridgedeck. Around the big U-shaped salon, eight people can dine in comfort, just opposite the pleasant, well-ventilated, and well-equipped galley, which faces the cockpit. Both the owner's cabin occupying the whole starboard hull and the two guest cabins in the port hull are vast, bright, very well ventilated, and finished to Catana quality. The owner's head is large, well ventilated (by a giant porthole), and includes a separate shower, washbasin, and toilet. 

The ergonomics of the decks and cockpit are exceptional. The winches for genoa and spinnaker sheets, the daggerboard controls, and the furling line fall nicely to hand. The automatic reefing system and the tender raising system allow the helmsman to do everything without leaving the shelter of the cockpit. The passage from the cockpit to the transoms is an invitation to swim. The bathing ladder and the freshwater shower transform the teak trimmed steps into genuine platforms for relaxation.
