This is a curvaceous and neat example of the traditional American catboat. She has been designed to give maximum usability and space in a 16' long package. There is plenty of room for storage and to fit the batteries for an electric drive pod. The drawings show a half-decked open boat but she could take a simple wood or canvas cuddy, boom tent and has room to sleep on.

The hull has plenty of form stability in her sections and ends in the lovely tumblehome bow of the traditional cape Cod catboats. Construction is for Cedar strip planking over computer faired moulds.
