Re: Tiki 36, Wharram design catamaran
The way that things worked out we have not built a Tiki 36, yet. We were commissioned to build a 47' Ariki. This is an earlier design of Wharrams that we( with Wharrams help and approval streched a bit and tweaked a bit and are building in foam cored glass. We have actually sold two of these boats now. We have built molds for all of the peices except for the beams at this point. We are having some engineering done before we build these molds. We are very excited about this vessel. The first boat will be delivered as a bare boat to be completed by the owner. The second boat will be at the Miami show in February. Here is a recent photo and a rendering. There is still no bridge deck saloon and it is still a shallow draft lightweight speedster. We can build this boat with mini-keels,or daggerboards or even centerboards. It will be a very comfortable boat for a cruising couple with occasional guests. It will not have three heads and four staterooms. It will also demount and ship in two 48' containers. We also are fans of Richard Woods designs. We are just now putting the bracing structure on the hull mold for the 32' Eclipse. This boat can be built as tube boat or with a bridge deck cabin. Peace, David
My freind Kevin Hutchinson is the artist. He measured the hull and house, and then drafted the hull and then painted it.
