    I'm looking for some premade catamaran design that I can use in Rhino, as I'm first using the program and I'd learn faster if I can play with some already made one.

    I assure you that if you try on your own, you will learn a lot more. When, after much work, do not know where to go, make specific questions in this forum. Believe me, if you do not suffer, do not learn.

    Do you intend to start at the end. People work hard, study hard, before attempting to design a hull.

    I love being useful.

    This presents a couple of articles I've found informative in the past. The first is by Richard Woods, the second taken from Terho Halme.
