Re: Fiberglass Wharram Ariki Catamaran

We delivered the first Ariki to the owner in Titusville this last week. He will now build the cockpit and center decks as well as the rig, paint, and all of the systems. We built the hulls with decks, houses, beams and rudders. Here is a short video of the delivery and set-up.

Re: Fiberglass Wharram Ariki Catamaran

For the last 3 months we have been building an Ariki for a couple from San Jose, CA. We will be finishing this boat all the way to a very nice level of finish. Here is a video showing some of the features of the new boat. Ariki 48 Sailing Catamaran | Build Update | 8 September 2013 - YouTube

Re: Fiberglass Wharram Ariki Catamaran

Once we had the motors in hand we messed around with the cockpit mock-up to make sure everything fit and worked as well as it could. Then we started building the cockpit.

Re: Fiberglass Wharram Ariki Catamaran

David,
Great build I'm following it with interest, congratulations, very interesting build clips but thank you for placing the James Wharram talks on UTube.
Whether one sails a Wharram or not, very few could deny the impact James Wharram has had on sailing, I just had view them all, thanks again for the videos.
Cheers,
Mac
