We do however not produce charter cats so only sleeping for a maximum of 6 people.

Ya, I'd probably give both my testicles for a FastCat, yet, I'm not sure I'd be brave enough to really get her up to speed after that.

Gideon, you should think about getting another one of your FastCat's as a demo/charter cat. You could charge top dollar to have one in charter at a location of your choice (somewhere in the Caribbean?). More people seeing and trying FastCat's... more sales.
I'd probably pay twice the going rate of a similar sized charter cat to rent a FastCat for a week or two, even if it does only sleep six!

Hallo Solarbri , you are right I am sure but the charter market is not the market we are aiming for , I do the boat building for pleasure and enjoy to make the best possible product .
We try to make a very comfortable, safe , spacious and fast Cruising catamaran but that also means that unexperienced charter boat renters need lessons so they do not endanger themselves, A lighter boat with more sail area needs to be sailed conservatively so we reef sooner .
Do not ever give up your testicles for anything , just come and join us for a sail without cost or obligation just for the fun of it

Warm Greetings

Gideon
