Additional Details

General

Overview

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 electric outboard motors – beachable, higher pointing angles and less drag off the wind.  Gunkholers delight – 2′-9” draft

Very simple layout – lightweight Core-Cell cored resin infused interior cabinetry, cherry framed caned panel doors to allow great ventilation in cabinets avoiding mold.

High speeds – Under sail averaging 200+ miles per day.  Hydro-generate 1 kW to 2 kW per hour at 9 knots.

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 thermoforming 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.

Maine Cat's 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, and a number of upgrades to our standard Wrap Drive radial cut Dacron for owner looking for the highest performance.  All sails designed by Calvert Sails.
