    Hello my friends,

    That should be the catamaran hull model more common, but it is not easy to find their lines on the web. Not for an affordable price.

    (THE SMALL HULL, RIGHT / HARD CHINE )

    If you have these lines, I have several not used plans for exchange or we can negotiate a sale price, ok? ...


    Look at that beautiful catamaran. That is what I intend to build.

    You don't say how big a boat you want, what material you want to build in, or whether it needs to meet commercial codes. And most important, what you will use the boat for.

    But you might find my Skoota 36 powercat suitable, if fitted with a small cabin and open aft deck. You can build it in plywood or foam sandwich. Total displacement is about 4.5T

    Hello Richard,

    I really like their designs. I like so much that will bought the plans of your "Mustang" and am very eager to build it.

    In this case, note that the shape looks a lot like a downeast hull (twin v-hull), allowing even the stitch and glue method, though I choose to
    build with sandwich foam/fiber. I would really like to have a v-botton of the picture, and the flat hull (or small angle) amidships to stern.

    (30 ft - offshore - cabin as in the picture - no need to meet codes)

    Thanks friend,

    Im a little confused, it looks like you already have models so why not take the lines of one? Richards Scoota 36 would certainly be a good starting point though.

    Steve.

    Hi Steve,

    These models do not have chine. They are more specific hulls to sailcat and I want to build a 30 ft V-HULL powercat, exactly like one below:

    Thanks,
    Valter.

    They look more like powercat hulls to me and they do have a chine, I thought that was what you wanted the lines off.

    Steve.

    This hull (deep vee chained) will enable a rapid and dry navigation. Furthermore, the flat midship aft will ensure stability and allow the transportation of much weight, how are the load cats.

    I do not need all design of boat. The patterns stitch and glue to build only a hull would be enough. Let me know who can do it, have lines or patterns only for one hull, ok? :confused:

    Valter.

    Apart from the spray knuckle and the sheer line the photo you show of the boat coming out of the mould looks very similar to my Skoota 36. Deep chine forward to stop pounding leading to flat aft sections for lift and buoyancy

    If you email or PM me I will give you a quote for the drawings necessary to build the boat to the stage shown in the photos I linked to earlier

    Hi Richard,

    Sorry friend. It's true. Looking at these pictures I had not seen, is very similar to what we need here. I will contact you through the site for a study plan.

    Valter.

    I suppose many of the participants in these forum could make templates but would need to know in more detail what you have and what you need. For example, are you going to cut templates by CNC ?, do you already have ship shapes adequate for stitch and glue method or you just have some nice pictures ?, .....
    You say you do not need the whole design of the boat so we can deduce that you have already designed it. To have a part of the design means having nothing because the final stages of the design process can substantially change the final design.
    Clarifications, please to answer properly.

    What is the desired cruise speed for the boat, and the gross weight ? That would be the key to decide what is best.
