Hi Martin,
The designer is Angelo Lavranos, a South African Naval Architect now operating in New Zealand. He is still commissioned by many South African boatyards to design yachts and powercraft which are exported all over the world.
Here`s a link to his web-site and the boat you are looking at in a bit more detail, if you have any questions you should contact Angelo directly.

Cheers
Steve

Are there any Kit Cats in the 30 foot range? I know that's small for a cruising cat but it's pretty big for a garage project.

Anyone else interested in this design, Proteus 10.6? Seems like a good choice for a home builder; easy to build, good accommodation, except that the deck cabin is rather short. The study plans show hulls with large volume and shallow draft and flat bottoms with boards. Might not be as fast as some of the more narrow round bottom designs with knuckles, but perhaps a good compromise between speed and sensitivity to load for cruising and ease and cost of building.

Any opinions? Anyone building or thinking to?

Tim,
THe Coral Coast 29 is not a kit cat but being chined construction it is pretty easy to build and has amazing level performance given its comfort and accommodation.

I have a friend who built one and I sail it now and then in Wednesday night twilight racing and for a cruising boat it does surprisingly well in the racing division.
It has two rear cabins with full double berths, The dining table under the bridge deck converts into another double. Plus a galley ,chart table, head and storage lockers.
It has a centre **** that will seat probably 6 with two standing that are sailing the boat. You are very protected in the **** with it coming up to chest height while standing. If I was going to build a cruising cat in the 30ft range I'd give it a pretty careful look.

Regards,
Phill

That sounds like a good boat for that size range! I also subscribe to Mulithulls Magazine which does cover some Austrailian cats, I will check my back issues to see if they have run a story on it. Do they have a web site? Thanks for the info.

Tim,
Try this, shows a pic with a pin head sail plan.
My friends boat has 3/4 rig with Wing mast and roachy main sail which is a much better option.

Thanks Phill, that looks like a lot of accomodations for a 29 foot cat! Looks a little boxy though with that big, square cabin top. I guess you can't have room inside unless you do that though. My only concern with that would be big waves crashing into that big flat side. Will the windows stay in it?

Tim,
You are right about it looking boxy but its looks are very deceiving. It sails much more like a race boat than the cruiser it is.
The boats have been used offshore quite a lot and I'm not aware of any problems.

If you were going to build a comfortable cruiser, when you look at the cost, accommodation and performance it would be hard to go past the Coral Coast 29.

Regards,
Phill
