I used to own Lizard of oz the first built Lizard cat. Now own Chameleon and used to own Kilo ( now The Visitor) for a short time. Faraway Thailand is a charter company with 2 Mumby cats - Mozart and Chameleon. Harwoods have set up in Cebu and are building 2 X Mumby cats. I actually set the Harwood Mumby deal up but have no involvement in the production.
Your right the Eastons and Lizards dont come anywhere near the Mumby cats. Tim's hull profiles are impressive with performance and sea handling

Cheers

Hoping you folks may be able to answer a few questions, some general, some specific!

Considering building a cat, somewhere between 42 - 48' leaning towards aluminum (have shop, welding skill and like idea of being able to wled on things like davits, etc.

Anyway.
- How do you think the material cost of aluminum compares with the glass kits?

- How much do you think the cost of essential items like rig, sails and engines, etc goes up in fitting out say a 48' cat, instead of a 44 or 46'er?

- I see the price for 13meter - 15 meter Lizard plans go for between $6500-8000AU$. Any idea how much plansa are for the Mumby 48 (or I believe there is a Mumby 46??) Is there a smaller Mumby??

Thanks in advance for any help!!

Please PM me for information.

I would prefer not to talk about business matters on the forum as the forum is more for passing on simple informative info. Your asking for more than that.

Firstly let me know if you intend building yourself or wish to have the cat built by others and you finish the interior etc.

I do have a secondhand Mumby cat for sale at the moment at way under the build cost.
