|Designed to Formula 28 rules, “TIGRE” also meets the NZMYC 8.5metre class rules
Constructed from composite strip planking, marine ply, foam, fiberglass, and small amounts of Kevlar and carbon fibre this craft was built for club racing and short term weekend cruising. Some experimentation in hullform, crossbeams, rig profile and layout has been applied here in an attempt to get improved allround sailing performance.
The 860kg dry wt combined with a length/beam ratio of 59% allows hull flying in moderate conditions, all aimed at better windward speed and angles.
There are a generous amount of sail/rig adjustments making it a real enthusiast’s catamaran, not for the beginner.
Basic accommodation consists of a single berty fwd in each hull, a removable chemical toilet,and tiny galley.Headroom is to NZMYC 8.5 rules (max 1.6m in main cabin area).
Motive power is by a 15hp outboard in a central pod behind the mast. Motor and pod fold up for extra clearance
This catamaran is not recommended for amateur construction.
