Cruising Multihulls

65' Cruising Catamaran

65' bridgedeck cruising catamaran in composite or CM epoxy/plywood.

Several of these massive cats have been built. The first 65' bridgedeck cruising catamaran was built of CM epoxy/plywood. Two were built in Lebanon from foam/glass. One version has a sunshade over the cockpit. Several interior options have evolved, but all carry passengers in comfort, speed and safety. This design has also been used for term charter.

Advanced rig design and deep boards let this cat point and foot like KHSD cats are known for doing. The design is optimized for short-handed sailing.
