|WILDCAT CUDDY 24
|Now the do it yourself boatbuilder can save a bundle and still take part in the revival of the proven power catamaran concept with our trailerable Wildcat Cuddy 24 design. This boat offers the best combination of a smooth ride in rough seas at high speeds using modest power and minimal fuel. The advantages of power catamarans result from reduced resistance due to less frontal area of the narrower twin hulls, and a cushion of air compressed within the tunnel that adds to lift for quick acceleration while softening the ride.
In addition, the Wildcat Cuddy 24 is more inherently stable than monohulls, both at rest and underway. The slender V bottom hulls minimize pounding. Tracking is straight and true at any speed without roll, yaw, or lean, even when running before seas or with the wind abeam. Yet turns are tight, secure, and nearly flat even at speed. Because beam is carried virtually to the bow, the self bailing cockpit is huge, flat, and uncluttered.
A step over transom gate cut out leads to a diveswim step just above water level. The result is a spacious sportfisher, a super stable dive platform, or efficient user friendly workboat.
Hull construction is especially intended for the amateur either epoxy glued fiberglass covered sheet plywood or welded aluminum. Rugged but lightweight bulkhead type frames feature integral cross beams for strength. Full size patterns are provided for all hull forming backbone members and frame contours no lofting required. Sequential instructions cover all aspects of the design and include hull material listings.
