Plans for the Amatasi 27

Wharram catamarans are based on the best of low-tech traditional catamaran design but incorporate modern features such as fiberglass coating for durability and modern sailing rigs for ease of management. The Amatasi 27’ was Wharram’s winning entry in Traditional Boat’s competition for an eco fishing boat. A double canoe design with bridge deck, it is low cost and requires few man-hours to build. It can be built from affordable and readily available materials. It requires only moderate carpentry skills and can be done with two teams building each hull simultaneously. This design, mimicking as it does the traditional boats of South Pacific, is perfect to present to our island nation partner communities. There is latent hereditary knowledge waiting to be revived.
