I was looking at boat that are advertised for sale
when I came across this one:
40’ Cat-Ketch 1978
Builder- J. Grube
Designer- Paul Kotzsebue
Ballast- 5,200# lead on fiberglass
Keel- foam core
fin built with hull
, lead ballast bolted in place.
Apparently it is similar to a Freedom Ketch
with the foremast located right at the bow. I am not familiar with this at all, but it is interesting.
Does anyone here have any experience with this type of boat or can anyone shed some light on the builder/designer of this particular boat?
It sure seem like the advertised displacement
is very light for this size of boat. I would like to find out more on this one. As I have mentioned, I doubt that I will ever be able to afford a Cat so I will keep looking for a bigger monohull
Thanks again for everyones patience with my questions
