30' Demountable Catamaran

30' demountable alloy-tube catamaran in developed plywood or composite.

This 30' demountable catamaran offers great performance, an easy build and full standing headroom. The aluminum tubes help with rapid construction.

The vessel above has the hard sheers option instead of the rounded shears. The mainsail has been drawn for both with a boom and boomless. The mast is a rotating extrusion. Notice the long boards that help it point and tack like crazy.

See the sliding tube option to get the cat narrow on the water.
