    Sorry if this question has been already asked many times.
    I have been using Carene to design a pram a long time ago on a Windows computer. I likes it and it worked well for me. Apparently Carene isn't around anymore.
    I am looking for a simple software to design a Wharram-like 23' catamaran: symmetrical V hulls. I need the hull sides developed to trace them and assemble them stitch and glue.
    I do have a windows computer but it has a virus and I use it very seldom. I use Ubuntu 14.4.
    Thanks

    FreeShip works very well with Wine (windows libraries in linux).

    Thanks, I was not aware of Caeses. I'll try both.

    I've been able to run DelftShip on the Mac in Wine too without issue. It probably should run with Linux and Wine.
