It started 20 years ago in Belgium, in the lovely city of Ghent, near the water. Brazapi was the name of the shipyard.
Several Brazapi-catamarans where made in Ghent, but the high Belgian wage cost forced us to look out for another location.
After moving to the Paradise Island, Sri Lanka the name Brazapi became Barramundi. People were trained, boats were built, but pirates made export very difficult. Security measures against pirates became an exorbitant additional cost , so the export stopped.
During these years a good collaboration was growing between Erik Lerouge , Franck de Rivoyre and Jan Verroken.
Based on on a solid basis of years of experience and a lot of expertise, an adapted shipyard has been built in Silistra, on the banks of the Danube, this in cooperation with Elica Yard founded by Elica-Elevator.
Elica Yard is built to reach a high level in composite building for 2 series of catamarans: The Elica series : a Power 50 and 60 feet, a 40 feet sailing yacht for relaxation and leisure and The Dondra range which stands for fast sail catamarans to live in and sail wherever.
Silistra, the location of Elica Yard, makes the transport over the Danube to the north of Europe, and over the Black sea to the Mediterranean, and wherever further, easy.
For those cases where transport is still too difficult or too expensive we developed a Dondra puzzle–catamaran that can be send in normal containers and put together by the owner in about two months.
