Multicap Caraibes Punch 1250

Hi,

I am in the process of buying a Kat for liveaboard and long term cruising. Plans are to leave Europe, cross the Atlantic towards the Carribean and than further away.

During my inquieries I just came across a Punch 1250 made by Multicap Caraibes. I have never heard about this model or manufacturer.

Is there anybody around who could share his experience with me?

Best regards
Klaus

Re: Multicap Caraibes Punch 1250

Pretty reasonable thing - from one report I have received, I haven't sailed one, but have been on one and spoken with the owners at length. Looking at the design I thought it appeared to have slimmish easily driven hulls, and in fact was a "small" 12.5 meter boat. Which is a good thing. I think they were a strip cedar build - (but could be wrong) The one I saw was half way through a circumnavigation.

Performance wise I would expect It would sit closer to the chris white/Mark Pescott end of the multihull spectrum than the lagoon end.

Thanks,

I have read in a test report that the main berths have only a width of a 1,3m. Is this possible? Do you remember anything?

I can't contribute much, but I do know that the Punch cats were built in Plywood/Epoxy. I do own a Plywood/Epoxy cat myself built professional in 1988 and love it. Very forgiving and easy to repair.
