The Schionning Waterline 1480 Barrocka. Art and design.

It was suggested to start a separate post on this beautiful cat. I couldn't agree more. It is a thing of beauty and function in a world often caught up too much in only function.Barrocka

What comes off the Schionning drawing board are some of the most beautiful lines you'll ever see. The problem is that a given builder may cut corners in translating those lines into the physical vessel. Charter Cats SA would probably still be in business if they hadn't built the Wildcat to meet a certain price point and had instead built to a quality standard well above what they evidently felt was "good enough."

The vessel pictured in the thread-opening post is stunning. Well done!

That wing mast is a thing of beauty. I love the entry point for the reefing lines that run underdeck.

I mentioned this in your previous post but gasoline driven outboards shouldn't be seen as a negative as this boats means of propulsion. They are lightweight, replaceable, cheap, easily serviced, and you can swap out your dingy engine into the same well.
If the gas tanks are placed on the cockpit floor with venting directly down and out, it's incredibly safe and virtually foolproof.

yep, those native fishingboats, dugout canoes, birds and Customs black kickerboots will show it just as much respect as an 80% (but half the time to do) job.

But yes, very purdy

It is but you need a cat that can sleep 12 for charter service with 4 to 6 cabins if you plan on getting that loan from dad.

Or roll up your sleeves and build it. And no, it won't sail like a pig, either! Not as pretty as Barrocka, but safer to walk on the decks- 65 Foot Sailing Catamaran Design by Tim Dunn

Rolling up my sleeves as we speak-

Nr 1 so far... Looks very nice. I even like the steeringposition except the enginecontrols on the roof.

What is the price on a boat like this?

Who is the builder of this boat?

Yeah, but....but....but.... it could capsize, it can't go the windward very well, and ya know, it just don't look like a "real" boat.

Seriously, that's a pretty nice looking cat.

Construction by son's of designer

Performance On light days, if the wind is aft of the beam, with full screecher and main she has achieved 9 knots in 6 knots of true breeze. Most other cruising yachts are motoring in these conditions.

When the wind is up a little, she sails dry and flat, effortlessly averaging 200 mile days on passages and making short coastal trips a breeze, with minimal sail handling. In a good breeze she will excite hardened racers, frequently sailing in the 20's. Her best logged 24 hours is a staggering 352 nautical miles of the Tasman sea , sailed on autopilot with hot meals and children sharing the watch.
