    Hi all craftsmen out there!

    Rather then writing this post as a reply to every job request that is listed in this forum, I will post my request here for you to reply to me. This makes it easier for me ;o)

    I am planning on building a 50-60 ft catamaran. The how and why is off topic here, but I have come as far a looking at several designs and study plans. I started working on my budgets and realized I will be needing help through out the entire process. I am thinking in terms of discussing the project from scratch, finding pitfalls, making cost analysis, hints and tricks on building, etc.

    The idea is to have the boat build near to where I live (Norway) as this will be my arena for the first few coming years. Many of the tasks I will be requiring from you can be done over the internet. Some of the tasks will require for you to come to Norway (or find somebody that can).

    This is a serious project. We have been planning this for some years now, and the time has come. If you feel this is a project you can work on then I welcome you and am looking forward to your comments and questions. Terms and conditions will be discussed in private.

    Welcome a board !

    PolarWind,

    What material are you building from mate, what design, this will determine to a great extent the person that you require.

    Nice! Congratulations.
    I'm envious.

    Curious, what is the maximum waterline beam of one of the demihulls?

    Thx Tomas. Not sure on the waterline beam but on the drawings I see the max beam is about 2,5 meter. With a Beam OA of 9 meter this is quite a lady. Can't wait to get my hands on the building plans ...

    Need to make my budgets first based on the study plans. That will be phase one of the project. And where I will be needing some help.

    Hi Polarwind,
    I'm an italian architect and yacht designer.

    I have not a catamaran package designs to show, but I sure can design YOUR OWN CAT custome (interior and exterior design) for your only working for a one off design!

    I'm working in a 30mt Power Catamaran concept together with a company and I will be pleased if you visit my website to know my nautic design.

    Waiting for your thoughts, comments and plans, I wish you a nice day and a lucky quest!
    Best Regards,
    Gian Paolo Nari

    The design only has value when it comes with feasibility/safety analysis, construction plans and specifications. Not pictures only...

    We have complete set of plans for the 60' cat referenced by topic starter, done to CE certification. Now proven and launched.

    Oops, these are famous Prout cats, I have one here for refit now. The molds are originally from Concordia and were modified many times... These boats had no engineering behind, hope Andery You improved them...

    Hi Alik; I do not know what is your precise understanding of by "engineeering" term.

    My understanding of term " engineering" related to the design and construction of Catamarans is : design and construction according to the Recreational Craft Directive and ISO Standards 12215 1-6 and the Relevant and or of the Lloyds Scantlings and Standards and Relevant Regulations

    I am not at all a buddy to Jack- ( Prout Catamarans Owner ) ;
    but I would however mention that in my opinion
    Prout Catamarans do not deserve your negative remarks.

    It is not at all my merit or my work in any way;
    but there actually is a lot of engineering in the Prout Catamarans
    wich are made by epoxy and vacuum infusion.

    To establish a Large Catamarans factory in China and to manufacture 70-100 ft ft vacuum infused hulls and decks and cabins is in itself a great endeavor wich in my opinion deserves respect

    I am no buddy to Jack but I do respect his work and his enterpreneurship.

    I can tell you I do have various sets of 40 ft- 60 ft Catamarans Plans from a number of international designers and or international design offices ; wich were drawn say before 10 years ago ;
    and who are with all consideration and respect
    in no way better that the Prout Catamarans/ if you are going to judge these design by its respect to the Lloyds Rule and or to the European ISO Standards


    Here couple images of the Prout Catamarans.
