Oddball Catamarans

I often see catamarans for sale that don't belong to the usual mass-produced group and wonder if anyone on this forum has any experience with them.
For starters, I've seen this one come up occasionally:
https://www.yachtworld.com/boats/199...n-900-3611277/
and then there's this one:
https://www.yachtworld.com/boats/199...e-36--3654587/
Any knowledge of either of these?

I don’t know anything about those two, but check out Kennex 445. A design that is still decent today. Kennex as in, the company that also makes tennis rackets.

The Sable 36 has the hulls of the Iroquois and a modified bridgedeck cabin........hell the whole boat was modified.

There are a lot of homebuilt Catamarans out there.

Everyday is a school day. Not come across either of these before. Don't think there is a connection with either Iroquois or Witness.


The Evazion 900 is very unusual as it is pretty hard to build a cat that small out of ali without it being very thin or very heavy.

The Carlson Ultimate Concept was a Iroquois knockoff. The Carlson Sable Iím 90% sure is the Witness knockoff.
No doubt I could be wrong

Both have plenty of bridgedeck clearance! Could be: Witness 35
