Re: Tiki 36, Wharram design catamaran

I was on a 43' Wharram once that later crossed the pond. It pulled right up onto the beach at my beach cat club.

I was not impressed. It had very very little space for a 43' boat. The decks are not laid out in a way that makes the best use of all the space, there is no real bridgedeck, and the space in the hulls is very very small for such a large boat. Having a family in this boat would be tight, and I imagine a tiki 36 would be even smaller.

They are seaworthy boats, but supposedly the flare of the deep V gives some discomfort and possible control issues in a seaway.
