65' Term Charter Catamaran

A 65' term charter catamaran in composite or CM plywood. 
This 65' term charter catamaran can be  built in either in composite foam/glass or the rapid CM technology for plywood/epoxy. It is arranged to carry 49 passengers on day trips or 12 for extended voyages. This cat has 6 staterooms, plus crews quarters.  The main cabin is very spacious.  The first vessel, pictured above, is working in the Caribbean.

I understand that two are also sailing in Lebanon now.
