    not professional but I have drawing the plans with sketchup
    length 16m hight 5,3m beam 4,7m

    before making the male hull (i think with PUR laminate with vinylester maybe epoxy) i will start with the stairs, swimplateau, trunk etc. I want this one with the best gelcoat on the market just building a female hull

    and so i can check the materials and how its work before i start the big works

    It looks like a good candidate for capsizing.

    All that work on a cad package and not a clue as to what hydrodynamics you might be interested in. The image provided doesn't offer much by way of how she's shaped, but what it does tell me is she's going to roll, like a $20 ****** at a frat party. I'm not even going to comment on structure, as the global loads alone should force you to consider professional help.

    Howabout you read a couple of boat design books cover-to-cover before you buy your first batch of resin and fiber.

    i'm still thinking for building a cat or trimaran is more easier about stability and thinks like that (i want only have a good project :) )

    also when the oil is gold prices, just a little works and we can sailing with the cat

    Drawing is not designing. A vessel can be designed without ever doing a drawing.
