dsigned: 24ft bluewater cat
Loosely inspired by MingMing II, I wanted to make something that would be a good cruising boat underway, and in a variety of conditions. I've come to believe that most modern cats are overly beamy, so I tend to aim for a 3:1 L:B ratio as opposed to a 2.2:1. The idea is to have a cat that's sea kindly, quick, and that can fit into a standard monohull berth. This cat in particular is roughly the same dimensions as a J-24 (albeit quite a bit lighter).
