85' Day Charter Catamaran


Proposal for an 85' term-charter sailing catamaran.

This sailing catamaran is a miniature ocean liner. Its mission is to carry 16 passengers on extended sailing voyages.  It features 8 staterooms on the main level.  Crew quarters are in the hulls.  The common area has a large bar and dining area.

It is to be constructed from foam/glass.
The design uses flat panel construction throughout virtually the entire vessel to save construction time.

This cat has dagger boards so it still points to windward very well.
