Unknown cat

Hi first post on this forum. I saw a cat today in Cartagena Marina Spain and really liked the look of her. Her name was Dr Martin or Dr martun with a German flag around 35-38 ft, she had a aft cockpit that ran across the full width of the boat and had three separate entrance ways, it looked like the bridge deck cabin was self contained, she was steered by a connected bar, had transom rudders that lifted. Wish I had taken a picture.To my eyes a very sea going boat. Can any one help with model type. Thanks

Re: Unknown cat

The Edel cats don't have lifting transom hung rudders, that I know of. Also the Edels don't have a cockpit that spans the entire width of the boat. Possibly a custom build?

Re: Unknown cat

Thanks guys but it is none of the above suggested. The cockpit was well protected by the super structure which flowed from centre pod to hulls giving a monocoque design, the three campanionways all faced aft with the cockpit running right across the yacht. It just looked right,not top heavy. If it was a custom build it was done very well she appeared to be make of grp. John

Any chance of a photo? That would help a bit.

Re: Unknown cat

Yep. True said lifting rudders are not too common on mass produced cats. Maybe a custom or a conversion.

The first cat produced by FP in the 80's. Quite a bit different than what's being produced nowadays!
