Rapid-Construction Multihulls

26' Proa

26' cruising proa in developed plywood.
This 26' cruising proa was originally designed for the gifted industrial designer Mike Schaat. Unit #2, shown above, has the unstayed Aero rig which I believe is the optimum rig for a proa.  The design is CM construction in plywood/epoxy.  Unit #2 is shown sailing in Finland.  It has a large queen size berth under a pop top.
