A 43' power sportfishing catamaran in composite construction. 

It will be built of foam/glass composite. It will be very easily driven, taking only 7 hp per side to hit hull speed of 9 knots.  It will have inboard diesels.  The long, slender hulls and high bridgedeck will allow it to power through bad seas with ease. It has two elegant staterooms and a generous lounge area inside. On top is a full flybridge.

Length overall: 43'-0" (13.1m)
Beam: 21'- 5" (6.53m)
