Wharram himself boarded our Tiki 30 for the first time and remarked to Hanneke, We need more boats built like this. We are frequently asked at boat shows if this is a Wharram knockoff or people will say you know this reminds me of a Wharram. I have not seen a Wharram finished as nicely as ours. Onne van der Wal saw our boat in Miami 2years ago and arranged to use it in The Exumas for a couple of weeks for a vacation with his boys. He can pretty much trade photos for the use of a boat with any builder, he liked ours. What other new 30' catamaran can you buy for 100k? Sure we cost more than most other Wharrams, we should dagnabit. There are many used Wwharrams floating around for 10-30k but not ones you are going to be proud to show off to your friends.
