Back to the future. This catamaran is as modern today as it was when I designed the boat 1992.
The CORMORANT was designed for a Dutch customer. He wanted a fast and sea worthy boat but with sufficient space to use the boat also as an office.
The lay out speaks for it self. This is a very comfortable boat with enough privacy for everyone on board. See pictures.
Construction is plywood/foam/glass/Epoxy composite. Compare the weight to production catamarans and you will know why I design in this construction system.
It is a big project for an amateur. I reckon with 4000 hours to build this boat.
The boat was used for this purpose all the years. He made very fast Atlantic crossings with the boat and was living on board till 2010.
The boat is now sold and sails somewhere in the Caribbean.
The very complete plan consists of 54 drawings and a construction description.
Plan costs € 1800,-
The study plan includes speed prediction, dynamic stability diagram, list of material etc.
