Aspen’s C120 delivers unparalleled performance and range with all the comforts and accommodations cruisers want.

Sometimes you want to have your cake and eat it too, but is that possible? Aspen Power Catamarans thinks it is. The Aspen C120 combines performance, range and fuel economy with a remarkable amount of living space and accommodations all in a smooth riding 40′ package. So how do they do it? The first step is the advanced design. Aspen’s patented power PROA hull design allows a single diesel engine (Volvo Penta D6) to propel the boat to a top speed over 27mph. Even more impressive is that at 17.5mph the boat burns only 8.45 gallons/hour, better than 2mpg yields a range of 410 miles (with a 10% reserve.) What this means is that Aspen owners can take their boats safely and efficiently anywhere they want to go. In fact, one Aspen owner recently took his new Aspen C120 over 10,000 nautical miles from Seattle to Annapolis on its own bottom. (Aspen 10,000 Mile Tour)

Another benefit of Aspen’s PROA cat design is the smooth ride they provide. The hulls remain in the water while cruising, so they slice through the seas. The carefully contoured tunnel is specifically designed to cut through seas directing water aft along the twin hulls as it does. This eliminates the slamming that many boats exhibit when they encounter waves at speed. The ride aboard an Aspen is smooth and efficient no matter what the conditions are like.

Performance often comes at a price, which is typically fuel burn, or accommodation space, or in many cases both, but not on the Aspen. We already established that Aspens can cruise at speed and remain fuel efficient, but that is only part of the proverbial “cake” that boaters are looking for. Living space is another area where the Aspen C120 excels. The Aspen C120 has three cabins including a master forward with a King Size bed and its own head with a separate shower compartment. The VIP is a queen, and there is also a twin bunk all with separate access. A second full head with shower is standard. The fully appointed galley has a gas oven/stove, microwave, deep stainless-steel sink, and an abundance of storage. A spacious salon features seating for 6 or more in air-conditioned or heated comfort, a flip down flat screen TV, and a main deck helm station with twin seats. The dining table can lower and convert to another bunk, and the surrounding seating can be optioned to recline electrically. Pull-out bar stool seats in the adjacent cockpit and a counter connect through an opening window to the salon. The cockpit is complete with additional seating and a teak table, bar fridge and provides access to both the swim platform (with a dinghy lift) and up to the optional flybridge. The flybridge not only has a fully functioning second station with a bucket helm seat but is a great congregating area with plenty of seating and a teak high-low table. The catamaran layout of the Aspen C120 has the square footage and accommodations of a vessel 50’ or greater all in a manageable and efficient 42’6” x13’10” platform.



Aspen delivers speed, fuel efficiency, range and offshore seakeeping performance, all in handcrafted and well-appointed forty footer with an abundance of accommodation space and features. All Aspen’s are proudly built in Burlington, WA, USA. The Aspen C120 really does allow boaters to have their cake and eat it too.
