Cat600 PJOA - A little vintage catamaran for home-build

Create a notification for "Catamaran"

The deep V hulls, like the early Hobie Cats, do without daggerboards, and the small rudders lower and raise depending on the depth of water. The rig (crab-clawed sails, of course) is designed to ensure perfect course-keeping. Mini fins parallel to the surface reduce pitching and act as steps when you’ve taken the ground. A berth in each hull is provided; the trampoline can offer two extra places once the custom-designed tent is set up. Glued plywood construction takes a few hundred hours in total, but each hull can be completed in a week or two depending on your skill levels. The Cat600 is easily dismantled for transport on a trailer.
