Re: Vendors for 50ft power catamaran

I've recently got a quote from a boat builder, but found out that he may be taking me for a ride. i am now looking for alternative builders. please see attachment for what we are looking for. 50ft Power catamaran. Below are some requirements that we have.

We need an urgent quotation for a 50 foot catamaran customised according to our specific needs:

· Hull should be strong enough to withstand the demands of African coastal and offshore waters – what is your recommended spec?

· Livewells

· 60 litre fridge boxes on all four corners of the main deck layout

· Full airconditioning in every compartment/ cabin/ room

· Portable bed in the control room

· A smaller saloon area

· A solid fibreglass roof with closable or removable windows (may be canvas)

· Bottom end of the hull should be black or charcoal in colour

· Engine: Should be highly reliable unit but not too powerful (fast) should be able to reach speed of up to 12 knots cruising speed and have a fuel capacity which should enable the boat a range of 2 200 nautical miles.

· The bow deck should have a six person seat instead of 8

· At least an 11 KW genset generator, if possible, 15 KW

· Both engine rooms should be sound proof

· Hydraulic diving platform at rear of the boat

· The rubberduck/ dinghy should have an aluminium/steel/ iron hull to protect against bruising in rocky areas

· Showers must have doors so that the toilets don’t get wet after showering

· 4 bedrooms (2 smaller rooms with 2 single beds, 1 larger room with double bed, other larger room with 3 single beds – bunker bed if possible, otherwise a single beds would do)

Re: Vendors for 50ft power catamaran

I think you need to start with a Naval Architect - or buy off the shelf (plans or whatever a builder currently makes) - and customise from there.

Personally I would not even bother responding to a request with so few specs - apart from maybe sending a very vague (and non-binding!) quote, plucked from thin air using the power of a wet finger! Time is money - mine is, if not also yours.

Re: Vendors for 50ft power catamaran

How about expected weight
Expected displacement
Engine size
General layout (how many cabins, bathrooms and people will be generally on board)

Re: Vendors for 50ft power catamaran

Have a friend who is considering selling his 95' custom built all aluminum power cat. Much bigger than 50' but it is already built and he may be in a negotiable state of mind.

Re: Vendors for 50ft Power Catamaran

There are a number of cat builders in South Africa. Africat is one that comes to mind. I do not know their quality level, though. They do export the U.S..

This site has a long list of powercat builders and designers. I would tend to avoid the ones from countries without an estabished boat-building tradition, though... good cats are not the easiest boats to build.

I am a registered marine surveyor and have a very good impression of the craftmanship of Mr Innamorati. The surveys I have done at his yard were highly recommendable. I can also help you if you are looking for a builder in South Africa.
