original use requirement called for this design of
a 32' powercat cruiser to be a mobile office between
the Hawaiian Islands. It had to be economical, but
serious enough for inter-island travel in any weather.
Then the owner would live aboard until the job was
done. It has what has become known as Glacer Bay hulls,
though it was designed in the late 90s when those
were not so well known. The hulls are semi-planning.
The rounded deadrise gives a smoother ride in the
rough stuff, and better performance at slower speeds.
If I were building a power cat, I think this would
be my boat.
began as a 32' design, but evolved into a 35' with
quantium inprovement in the spaces with just three
more feet size increase. The high bridgedeck clearance
lets it keep driving in bad slop. Construction is
foam/glass. Power will be a pair of 3 series Yanmars.
am assuming the plans price will be around $3,500
if I can get more than one order. The plans are completed
through design development.
