65' Day Charter Catamaran

65' daycharter catamaran in alloy construction.
This 65' daycharter catamaran design is built in aluminum alloy.  It is USCG certified for 118-passengers.  I recently went to Key West to see how my design was faring.  Amazing.  They somehow figured out how to build three boats from one set of plans.  I'm impressed.  Visit "Atlantic Fury."
