I have been studying multihulls for many years, and this is my first complete catamaran design for sale. I have also designed a 40′ cruising trimaran. The Sharpie Cat hulls are of very simple design—long, narrow, flat-bottomed—for high speed, strength, and simple, inexpensive construction. Most of my designs are posted on my website, www.parker-marine.com.
