    Latest issue of PROBOAT has an article about the race Around Vancouver Island won by a multihull powerboat in a proa configuration. The port hull is of much narrower beam than the starboard one where the engine is located.

    Does anyone here have experience with how the hydrodynamics of this system works?

    Don't know the one above, but here is another power proa . . .

    More Than Jzerro
    The power proa is from: 1 min. 21 sec. to 3 min. 24 sec. in the video.

    Thanks Angélique , that is what I was looking for. The photo in Proboat looked like any other catamaran.
