Although, I assume some of his designs were still built within the last 20 years?

There's more room aboard than we can justify for just the two of us. Galley down with three full sized double cabins and a massive saloon. Watermaker, washing machine, solar, diesel and wind generators, we tend to generate more electric than we use. Currently heading along the north coast of Spain.

Ive seen a few Quasars around, but never sailed one, but expect they do well with all that water line length.

I also like the sail plan on the Quasar, and other Prouts, cutter rigged, smallish main, lines lead very directly to cockpit. Much better sail plan for cruising use IMHO, than the monster main sail more typical on most modern cats.

Piver, Lock, even Hughes used a similar center hull on their trimarans, can't beat a double chine trimaran, even today.

Having sundowners in the cockpit when I turned around and saw the 93' Chinese tri dock in our O'ahu marina. The skipper was doing a solo friendship run between SF and Shanghai (?). He was lost overboard about 600 miles north of Honolulu. The HUGE boat can reach 35-40 knots!

Just took a look online at this one: http://www.yachtworld.com/boats/1991...e#.WDRD959OlnE

Narrowish hulls, low profile, she looks quick! So very different to what's come later. Shame the small ones aren't made anymore!

Hi Multihuler,

I owned a Piver AA31 (double chine) modified with Cross keel and rudder. It sailed very well for the times, but hobby-horsing from all the rocker was a bother in choppy conditions. I'll take the hulls of Nice Pair or my own boat any day. OK, maybe the Shockwave could use a bit more bouyancy in the bows. At 20kts there wasn't a lot of freeboard left

And congratulations on finishing R2AK

Cheers,

Re: Of the last 20 years, the Classics of the Cruiser multihulls?

To add to the list:

Gerard Danson Outremers
Schionnings
Erik LeRouge - more than a little influence on Manta?
Switch 51

A +1 for the Atlantic 42

And our own boat, though certainly not production, seems to be widely admired.

Cheers,

I am a bit chuffed owning both PDQ 36 #97 and a Danson Outremer 45 .they both started from the same place reasonable accommodation set against performance . The 45 is a passage maker and the 36 is a coastal cruiser .I like them both . Jdazey did you by the 48 that was in Stuart FLA . WE looked at it and what a beautiful boat ! my favourite Chris White design

Yes, we're did. We in the Lower Chesapeake now doing refit kinds of things with hopes of voyaging next Spring. Stop by if you're in the neighborhood.

Cheers,
