Altair

Altair
11.9 m[39'] cruising catamaran

The "Altair" is a serious cruising boat and as such has a generous full load displacement which allows for a good load carrying capability without compromising either the height of the wing deck off the water or the boats performance. It will likely float a little high at the launching but I am sure that the average owner will be able to sink it down to its designed waterline within the year. Boats of this design have made a number of successful ocean passages.

Booklets on construction of such items as glass fibre underwater foils,  composite beams and wing masts are provided with the plans. Booklets also cover the various components and construction techniques such as stressed ply, strip plank cedar composite and strip plank foam that are appropriate to the particular design you have chosen. They also deal with setting up mould frames, flat panel and ply/foam/ply construction and vacuum bagging and resin infusion if you plan on using those methods.
