Cool.
Who built it, and where did you spot it?
Oram doesn’t list any Trimaran designs on his website Bob Oram Design

Hi Gord,

Bob Norson from The Coastal Passage Home Page sent them to me a few mths back.

The last pic I pulled off of Streamline Catamarans: Power Catamarans website. ( i'm 99% sure they built the green striper as well)

Sean, I think it was about 47 ft and I'm not sure of the powerplant, but for some reason 125HP for the green one sticks in my mind

I like the styling on the white one, that was what I wanted to have mine look like,(Classic) and I suppose with a bit of creative saw work, a few sticks and a bit of epoxy, could still get similar.

The financier wanted more the Schionning (modern) look.

Which style will look more acceptable with crab pots on the roof i ask?

NOT the Schionning

Dave

Streamline Catamarans identifies the last picture as:
“The recently launched Oram Designed 50 Tri Hull ("Liberator") on sea trials before delivery to the Gold Coast”

Yep, that'd be right for that one, she has the nice step job down aft, so there's an extra few feet over the green striped one.

The 50 footer was built by Streamline Catamarans. She's called "Liberator" and has a very upmarket finish, with pop-up plasma screens, leather seats, etc.
The one with the green stripe is a 40 footer called "Steamboat". She was built by Neil Bochow of Cool cats Coolkats to a nice, but less lavish standard. The 40 footer has a John Deere engine. Not sure of power output, but I can find out.

edit: the Coolcats site needs updating, the boat advertised there was sold quite some time ago and is currently cruising North.

Saw the green striped vessel at Townsville marina last year.
Following the success Bob has had with his 40ft pod cat ( Video of Bob Oram’s Power Boat « Bob Oram Design ) he has designed a new series of vessels the Upolo 10 and Argincourt 14

Construction of the first of the 10 meter power cats is detailed on this blog site

Re: New Bob Oram Design

Hello
For those interested,

I'm building the ORAM 10m Upulo powersailer cat WilPower, shown in early construction photos on Bob Oram's website.
It's about 10 months since those photos were taken and I hope to be launching mid Nov 2011.
WilPower will be moored at my home at Pacific Harbour, Bribie Island.

Re: New Bob Oram Design

Hi Wilpower,

I have observed construction of your vessel whilst also watching the 39C being built and had been obverving the construction on that build website site until it closed down.

I am keenly following as I believe you have chosen a great little vessel.


Good luck with the the fitout and launch.
Guess i understand the meaning of your name.
