Her high-performance capabilities and open, airy spaces have made her a favorite for private charters and liveaboards.
Yacht is available for sale as well as the business in Key West.

General Design Theory – lightweight – high performance – simple to sail and maintain
Open bridgedeck – better visibility, better looking and great air flow
High Fineness ratio – length to beam ratio close to 12:1 when kept light.
Flared hulls with protective “shoulder” – drier ride and huge interior volume
Retractable daggerboards and engines – beachable, higher pointing angles and less drag off the wind. Gunkholers delight – 29” draft
Very simple layout – lightweight interior wood furniture cabinetry, easily added and deleted components to fit requirements of our racers, day-sailors or live-aboards.
Modular build – ship components inexpensively anywhere in the world and do final assembly near home waters.
High speeds – Under sail or power our goal is averaging 10 knots
Auxiliary power – Single Honda 50hp 4-stroke outboard extra long shaft, power trim and tilt with bow thruster.
General Design Parameters:
Design to be single-handed. Fun to sail and out-perform all current cruising catamarans on the market. Comfortable, safe, easy to sail and affordable.
Build the lightest structural components possible by thermo-forming Core-Cell PH core and resin infusing 100% vinyl ester resin in female molds. Finished boat is 2 hull and deck units, capped bridgedeck platform, rig and roof and you are ready to go sailing in an ocean capable, high performance cat. We are offering a very simply equipped package to keep the price as affordable as possible. We offer a host of options you can add yourself in time or we can install at the shop during the initial build. Our goal is to get you out on the water sailing as economically as possible, before you start adding “stuff” you might be able to live more comfortably without. Every piece of equipment you add requires maintenance and time taken away from sailing.
Hull Shapes are designed to maximize the interior volume, minimize the waterline beam and keep spray down and off the deck and windscreen. The nicely radiused chine and “shoulders” we designed provides almost 6 feet at the maximum beam of each hull, yet the waterline maximum beam is only 38” when she is fully loaded to 12,400 lbs. Our chine is over 12 inches above the DWL and will provide very little resistance or interference for our racer owners and huge additional buoyancy for our loaded-up live aboard cruisers in large seas.
Our approach to the rig design is also going to offer our owners a number of choices to fit their skill level and cruising area. Our standard rig will be a Selden fixed fractional rig with furling self-tacking jib and fully batten main similar to our MC 41 setup. Options available will include pole mounted free furling screacher, flat top mainsail, jib boom, and rotating aluminum mast.
Our solution for economical, lightweight and inexpensive auxiliary power which is easy to access, eliminate drag while sailing and avoid lower leg corrosion will be an outboard engine. The design includes a single 50 hp 4-stroke fuel efficient outboard engine housed in a nicely faired nacelle. The engine has power tilt and it fully retracts clear of the water
Maine Cat 30 owners have been using outboard auxiliary power since 1996 and it works.
