Still no feedback on the Suncat
Sending a reminder...

I did however get some feedback on my Prout query :
Quote:
"Event 34:- A move on from the 33 with modified hull and new deck. More beam and new stern profile. Interior updated as can be expected from the newest of your list. Increased aft cabin size including full double berth. In performance term , in my opinion the aft cabin mods ruined the sailing performance of this boat. Increased build weight and reduced flow through hulls and nacelle which again was increased to improve internal space."
Someone here to acknowledge or contradict this

If this is true one is be better of choosing an older (and cheaper) Prout than the Event...

Thanks !!!

search goes on

Someone went to have a look at a Prout Event for me, it was priced attractively but apparently all required work would bring her far above my budget...

I keep on looking...

I might plan a boatseeing trip to France soon (might go to the UK as well)...

Some of the boats we want to have a look at (and your impression on any if you know these boats is appreciated as always)...
Sea Cat 34 I have no knowledge about this boat, anyone
Hobart 900 & one Hobart 900 needing some TLC
Cité d'Aleth II which might turn up being too small in accomodation but seems to be an excellent sailor...

Maybe add a visit to a Comanche too but I am not sure about the size of the berths, reason for which we dropped the Iroquois of our list...
This Comanche is located south of Spain, a bit far away, eventual visit should be planned separately...
This Comanche and this one are over my budget, this one is closer to budget and all in France so maybe worth the detour...

As you might imagine, I'm pretty busy now trying to gather as much information as I can...

Lack of sidedeck will drop this of our list anyway, more interior space but no easy way forward...

While we're at it, trying to identify this "Toulbao" Catamaran too...

Any idea's somebody ?

Got some feedback on the Toulbao Catamaran.
Amateur built, architect Fleury.
The ad is all but clear and the pictures are not recent... It is in worse condition than described and needs a lot of tlc. Only one engine is fitted, the other one is removed and needs to be refitted, all mast, rigging and outside parts have been removed and need to be refitted. He mentions a new sail in the ad, from the mail I understand this might not be the case.
Only one interior pic in the ad, probably prior to the dismanteling. As now the interior has been completely dismantled and only partially rebuilt, electrics, electronics, etc, all needs to be reinstalled.
Looks like they bought the boat to rebuild it a few years ago and now quit this project as they might have underestimated the workload and associated costs...
The very same reason why I don't want to get involved in a total refurbishing or building of a boat myself.
Maybe something for amateur boat builders to finish what they started, not for me...

Thanks for the hint M8...

Looks like an open bridgedeck so we'll pass, might be OK for the pacific but around Europe

John Hitch Catamaran

OK, different from the Crowther ...

I just came across the John Hitch Catamaran below, it was listed in New Zealand for NZ$124,000... (not for sale anymore)
This is not a lot of money for a 41 ft catamaran...


I had never heard of John Hitch Catamarans before... (probably because he's from the other hemisphere )
Anybody knows this catamaran or John Hitch ?

As I am looking for a Catamaran it might be worthwhile for me to look at his boats if one comes on the market... As long as it sails correctly off course
It does not appear to have keels so I guess it must have swing boards (dagger boards would be visible when beached) or asymmetric hulls, anyone ?


Thanks !!

Looking at one of the other pictures in the ad :



That looks like deep V hulls ...
Don't they imply very bad windward ability
