    I have found this catamaran concept design in Pinterest which is made by Robbert Das, a famed marine illustrator.
    Are there any boat which was made according to this concept? It seems to be a nice classical design.

    One of the larger Wharrams would be closest match.
    Pretty hard to engineer a boat from “concept” drawings.

    @redreuben Thanks for your reply.
    Yes I see that Wharrams designs are very close to this design.
    I see a basic difference from Wharram's design is, Wharram's designs have plywood shell/skin on the hull but this seems to of a heavy plank/solid wood shell.

    The basic difference is Wharram is an actual design and the other is a picture.
    I believe there has been some of Wharrams ethnic designs done in planked timber.

    @myszek yes, the boat Kaimiloa looks pretty similar. Thank you very much for the information...
