Anyone have experience of these cats?

Google terhohalme Catharsis 27. Terho is a Fin, four of these cats were to be built at a trade school, and the design looks like what you are looking for.

Malcolm Tennant GBE - Great barrier express. 8.5m

Malcolm Tennant Multihull Design Ltd - Great Barrier Express



Malcolm Tennant Turissimo 9. Similar to GBE but more space, probably the one I would go for.

Malcolm Tennant Multihull Design Ltd - Turissimo - 9



TENNANT TURISSIMO 9 boat details - BoatPoint Australia

There is a Turissimo 10 too which has quite a lot of room but is way over your length requirement and costs a lot more.
