Crazy looking but efficient design

If you don't mind sleeping in a hole, this one makes fuel. SIAP

Welcome to the forum! Think there's a lot more internal room in my 45' trawler and it will fit in a narrower slip.

A very very strange novelty. It's not really even a legitimate catamaran. It's an absurdly long but narrow monohull with two pontoons stuck out to the sides. I'm not sure I'd give $8k for it, much less $800k. I looked and looked for redeeming features and never found any.

That's because it is a trimaran, similar to a cat only with an extra hull

It floats doesn't it? OOPS, on second thought I think I'll agree with
you.

But it claims to be a catamaran. Yes, it's a trimaran but neither extra hull is of any functional use. It's like a boat that wouldn't float, or couldn't handle waves or something so at home someone decides to try these two pieces on it. I think there's a good reason you can't find Stuart Catamarans today. I suspect this was the only one ever built.

More like outriggers on a Polynesian canoe. Or on local boats in Philippines, in Boracay or El Nido .

Agreed...though the nmpg would be nice. It takes all kinds I suppose.

Surely an impractical boat, unlike all our (TF's) boats.

Gee, there is even space for a second dinghy!

Wonder how those side pontoons can handle a hard hit on a dock.

Thanks. Long time lurker. Signed up some time ago to contact a member about his boat.

Probably should have made my first post about anchors.

The concept is a long skinny hull can be driven to high speeds with less power. A narrow hull is less stable (unless BIG like a carrier) so the amas keep it upright.

With no sail load the amas can be quite small, like training wheels.

With fracking , the way to" drill here drill now" without fed permission the price of oil is low enough for folks not to bother with "efficient".

As I started reading that sentence I expected it to end with "an extra long tail."

So imagine all those pictures taken when it was first put on. Wonder what it looks like now.
