Location: Sept-Iles, Quebec, Canada Looking for aluminum sailing cat plans I am looking to purchase building plans for a 37' to 45' aluminum sailing catamaran. I am having difficulties locating any sailing aluminum catamaran plans and I would appreciate if any body can give me any leads on finding some plans or some experienced designers. If I can not find any genuine aluminum cat plan, I am also thinking about a hard chine plywood to aluminum plan conversion. Noting that your discussion took place some time ago - I am eager to find out, if you actually did build the aluminium hulls. When I was seeking fir an aluminium catamaran plan, I was working as a consultant in naval architecture and one of my clients was seriously interested by an aluminium cruising catamaran. At that time, I had access to many aluminium building shops in my region and I started to do a feasibility study for this customer.
In general, most peoples will agree that an aluminium catamaran becomes interesting in a length over 50ft. After searching, I found out that there are almost no plans available for aluminium catamaran shorter than 45ft so the project of my customer had a rough start.
I really like these three designs and I would consider building any of them for my personal needs in about 10 years but at the moment, I am leaning towards a 32ft weekender catamaran build in foam composite. Peter Francois Lucas is a French Naval Architect that has designed at least two Aluminium Cats, with plans for amateur construction. If you read all the comments, you will see that an aluminium version of the boat is also available.
