"The PDQ 32, designed by Steve Killing, is a small cruising cat and an excellent example of the volumetric diversity in cats. Essentially what you have in a small cruising cat is two tubes or tunnels - the hulls - connected by a big flat box, the main cabin. I call this the bridge deck. Laying out the bridge deck is no problem. The problem is extending the headroom athwart ships to give you comfortable access down into the hulls without stooping. The PDQ accomplishes this by layering the cabin trunk in two levels, one to provide bridge deck headroom clearance, and the other to get headroom in the hulls. There is no monohull equivalent to this design challenge." ~ Bob Perry
Moxie Cat is a good example of this popular pocket cruising cat. Well maintained and continually cruised this boat is ready to carry on and take her new owners for fantastic sails, quickly, safely and comfortably.

"This 32 foot cruiser has provided years of service to its three owners. It has traveled to the Bahamas and the Keys from New York to Maine. Off shore it is eminently safe and seaworthy. In shore it's foot draft allows travel in shallows not usually seen by yachts that sleep up to six people. The sixteen foot beam makes for a solid performer with minimal heeling. Moxie Cat is a cruising cat whose performance will match most monohulls twice her length. Using the 9.9 hp Yamaha motors cruising speed of six knots with a max of seven and a half knots are attained. Docking is easily facilitated with twin motors allowing the boat to spin in its own length under ideal conditions. Under sail Moxie Cat performs well especially off wind where double digit speeds can been attained. Tacking up wind is easily accomplished with the self tending jib and main. All lines lead to the cockpit and can be easily and safely tended, including reef lines, without having to go on deck." ~ Moxie Cat's current owner
"One of the things we like about PDQ boats is the quality materials and generally clean workmanship. A modified epoxy resin (AME 5000) and tri-axial knitted fiberglass fabrics are used in the hull and deck. The mast is supported in part by a carbon fiber reinforced deck beam. The hulls are solid glass below the waterline and cored with Klegecell foam above the water, an arrangement we think makes a lot of sense. Each hull has an air-tight compartment forward, which provides a measure of safety in the event of collision, and the keels also have sacrificial sections. Vacuum bagging is used for good bonding and glass-to-resin ratios. When you poke around in lockers, you don’t see a lot of unfinished glass. Pieces seem to fit. You get the feeling that care was taken in putting everything together." ~ Practical Sailor
