- This design is for a basic catamaran that offers more
than two floats connected by aluminium beams. It is to be cruised or raced
in harbour or coastal conditions but have the potential to be taken offshore
for short periods by 3 to 4 people. The concept was to have the downstairs
layout of a bridge-deck catamaran with forward end of the floats having a
single bunk which would double as stowage. Aft of here would be the toilet
and vanity compartment which doubles as a ensuite for the main double
cabins. Aft in the port hull is a 'U' shaped galley while in the starboard
aft is a 'U' shaped dinette that drops for another double bunk.
- The deck layout is tidy with the permanent prod attached to the fore beam but running past to the main beam. There are a series of hatches in the forward end of the main beam opening up stowage compartments. The headsail sheets and halyard control lines lead to winches on the cabin top above the double bunks.
- The companionway hatches are just behind the main beam
which exposes you to a solid tramp and cockpit area. This could have a bimini
top over it to create a sheltered area in all weather.
- The cockpit is open plan with two seats in the middle
but outboard against the floats, these have gas bottles and stowage
under them. Forward of the helm station is the gennaker sheet winches
and fwd on the beam are the traveller and mainsheet control lines in
easy reach of the helmsman.
- The transom hung rudders have boarding platform and
steps for easier access in and out of the dinghy.
- Auxiliary power is either outboards positioned under
the solid wing-deck with hatches above or diesel saildrive units up to
20hp each side under the helm-station floor.
