Cruising Multihulls

36' Cruising Catamaran

A 36' cruising catamaran in developed plywood or composite.

This 36' cruising catamaran is intended to be a pocket ocean cruiser. Construction can be the rapid CM construction in plywood/epoxy or with composite hulls. By despensing with the typical large bridgedeck house, this design gives better windward performance and better safety in hideous sailing conditions.

Up on the main deck it has a pair of queen size berths 5'(1.52m) x 7'(2.13m) ahead of the cockpit. Down in the hulls find a galley aft on port and office/nav station aft on starboard. A lounging area is amidships on starboard and a dining area is on port. Each hull has a head forward of the beam, and a single forward of that.

Deep boards and kick-up rudders give superior handling and pointing.
