Re: Catalac 10m

Thanks all. Maybe I'll get up to speed eventually.

That's my website.

I've been on lots of catamarans and all the Catalac models. I'll answer any questions you might have.

As for a vintage Catamaran vs a new boat, the answer is performance, and styling. Older boats are full of Teak and/or mahogany, while newer boats have little wood in their interiors. Newer boats are lighter (cored hulls and decks) and faster.

Thanks thesnort. I did find this today: http://www.catamaransite.com/inspection.html

I'm still trying to find the differences between older and newer cats.

Very solidly built catamaran. You could jump up and down on one and it would feel like an anchored cement dock. It was either this or the 12 meter that was laid up extra, extra thick in fiberglass. There's another forum or two out there where an owner or two could give you more specifics. I've been on the 8M and the 9M. Tons of cockpit room on those, so I imagine the 10M is similar.

Catalac 10m

Did some searches and found some info. Seems to be a decent older cat. I'm not seeing any comparisons with newer cats nor what kind of problems these cats have esp over the long term. And info will be appreciated. Thanks
