48'  Outsider Performance Catamaran

A 48' high performance catamaran in composite construction. 
This 48' catamaran was being built in Tunisia by MCTEC.  It was sold in both daycharter and performance cruising versions.  MCTEC has gone quiet so I am offering the plans for sale at this time.  This design will be very competitive with the heavily marketed Gunboat, for example, but at a better price.
