The Unicat 2.4 is a stable, and practical dinghy, designed for use as a tender or for fishing. The innovative inverted vee hull is very stable, easy to row, fast under motor, and can carry up to 3 adults safely.

The Unicat can achieve planing speeds with only 3hp.

The Unique cross shaped seating allows correct distribution of passengers to keep the boat correctly trimmed for easy rowing and a dry ride.

The seats provide sealed bouyancy to keep the boat afloat if swamped. Watertight storage is provided for small items such as cellphones and keys.

With a weight of only 35kg, the Unicat can be carried on a roof rack, or the back of a utility vehicle.

Construction is stitch and tape plywood, sealed with fibreglass on the outside. This method is light, quick, sturdy, and results in a low maintenance boat. Construction of the first boat took 2 weeks of afternoon and evening work. Fairing and painting took a further 4 weeks.

The plans are very skimpy and I am having a hard time getting any questions answered.
