The Alaskan 41 Power Catamaran is sophisticated & stylish with accommodation. Easy entertaining to suit live aboard cruisers.
Alaskan 41 Power Catamaran is a seaworthy passage maker, the Alaskan runs on very economical hulls, giving her cruising speeds of 16-17kts, and a top speed of 24kts pushed by just two 125hp Yanmar turbo diesels housed in separate engine rooms.
With such small Horse Power and very economical hull shapes the Alaskan has the fuel consumption figures to embarrass even the most frugal of monohull designs. Cruising at 16-17kts fuel consumption is 1.3ltrs per Nautical mile giving the Alaskan a range of close to 1000 sea miles. Sophisticated and stylish with accommodation to suit live aboard cruisers and well set up for very easy entertaining, this design suits a wide range of applications and can literally go anywhere.
Available in kit form with many parts pre-cut and our very latest construction plans with loads of detail, she is suitable for amateur or professional builders.
Sea Shanty 1600
The Sea Shanty evolved as an idea of Jeff's to create a large stable cruising platform, able to carry enough of the cruising toys to make it a real home away from home. The huge cockpit and multiple cabins make the Shanty into a real palace on the water. Motorbikes or a small car could be loaded via the aft ramp, if desired.
- A world cruiser, she has a generous payload to afford luxury.
- Not all of the internal furniture is built in, household items may be used.
- Moderate cruising speeds from 9-12 knots up to 24 knots.
- Combination of strip planking and flat panel construction.
- Fantastic for those that wish to escape it all and explore the globe.
