Looking for cat designed for 1

How's it going y'all? I'm trying to find a catamaran between 32 and 42 foot designed with only 1 cabin. Something along the lines of the zeta 32 but not a powerboat. If anyone knows any I'd appreciate it. For the life of me I can't find any except the zeta.

Re: Looking for cat designed for 1

Cant think of any sailing cats with just 1 cabin. That would be a very unusual cat. Small mono is better suited to a single cabin layout.

Re: Looking for cat designed for 1

You could take a look at a Gemini. 2 cabins but the extra could easily be turned into storage. Narrow beamed and supposedly pretty easy to sail...

Re: Looking for cat designed for 1

Perhaps a Stilleto 27 would suite?

Re: Looking for cat designed for 1

Seriously, not a smart-ased questiom, but if the prime critera for purchase is "single cabin" why NOT a mono as BELIZE suggested. Im curious...is the aim to be more horizontal, more room, faster, ....honestly interested as to why your 'cat' preference.
If my question is a bit 'thread drifty' then forgive me please (one or both of you).
Off to google ZETA 32.
Thanks people x 2.
Brian.

Re: Looking for cat designed for 1

If you google the word "GAIASDREAM" go to images, see a PROA, the origins of which i think are south pacific indiginous. This particular proa was built by a Dutchman in northern NSW Oz. Doubt its for sale.
Perhaps this guys website may inspire you to expend your concept horizons a bit.
The pacific islanders have used proas since the year dot.
On "giasdream" the foot of the mast moves fore and aft on a track allowing 'rake adjustment' so great as to allow the boat to sail backwards (IF you REFUSED to turn around that is !).
ONE cabin......
As i recall this ship, as the Dutch call boats, has sailed the Pacific extensively.
Maybe, I you like the proa concept, you could find some for sale.
Just a thought but really, giasdream, as a sailing vessel should interest ANY yachtsperson Id think.
FWIW

Re: Looking for cat designed for 1

Get a two cabin boat and turn one into a workshop. Or a three cabin boat and turn the other into an office.

Re: Looking for cat designed for 1

Wow thanks so much for all the answers y'all. I'm so glad I made an account here. My main reason for one cabin is that I want as much interior room as possible. I love open concept cats like the helia 44 (sadly it's pretty far out of my price range) and I have no problem sacrificing an extra cabin if it means an open salon area. I guess they're few and far between though. I'm not hugely against monosails but I a million times prefer cats. Really what I care about more than anything is a cat with a big lounging area.

Re: Looking for cat designed for 1

It'll be 2 on board and I definitely don't plan on crossing any oceans. Only cruising around the Caribbean for us.
