Polynesian Concepts 4

Does anyone know where I can get photos of Polycon 4? IIRC it was 60’ with a trampoline instead of a cabin. Thanks.

Re: Polynesian Concepts 4

Back in about 1984 I stopped by the Balboa Yacht Club. I was looking for a cat to rent, but of course they did not rent cats there. Harry Bourgeosie overheard us and asked if we’d like to go for a ride on his catamaran. He called it Polycon 4, and explained it was built by Buddy Ebson’s company Polynesian Concepts. He said he took it out once a week for Buddy. It was 60’ long, about 20’ wide, and the hull were 10’ high. The deck chairs were stored in the hulls, and mounted in sockets when in use. Between the hulls was a trampoline.
We went for a cruise in Newport Bay, passing a group of monohulls like they were standing still. Harry let me sail it for a while, what a thrill!!

Re: Polynesian Concepts 4

I guess no one has any photos of Polycon 4. I am curious to know if anyone has seen or sailed upon one of those large cats. Anyone?

Re: Polynesian Concepts 4

From one source:

"An avid sailor and love for the US Naval service, he donated four open ocean sailing yachts (named Polynesian Concepts I, II, III, and IV) to the US Naval Academy's Sailing Squadron in Annapolis, Maryland. "


Contacting them may be your best bet.
