FISHING

The Growler 710 VT Fishing has been designed specifically for those interested in a fast, practical run-a-bout for fishing. A hard-top cover provides much needed shade when out on the water, as well as plenty of space to work while remaining extremely stable in even the largest swells. She has excellent load carrying capabilities, and can be loaded with equipment and passengers more so than other boats of similar size. Or perhaps just to bring home all the fish! The reduced size bi-mini reduces interference with rods and casting. A small fridge can be installed, and theres plenty of rooms for eskies.
Floor space is kept flat with one step forward to maximise the room when fighting a big catch. The Growler 710 VT Fishing is the ultimate fishing machine!

Growler 710 VT
SPORTS

The Growler 710 VT Sports is the ultimate run-about for waterskiing, wakeboarding, or simply taking out friends and family for a day on the water. With plenty of seating for 6 passengers, or more should you require – you won’t have to leave anyone at home. Perfect for loading the camping gear and taking off up rivers, creeks and inland waterways, as well as extremely seaworthy for those adventures that take you out into the ocean swells. Easily beached, just raise the outboards or anchor and swim from the transom. Depending on your needs, a small 12v fridge (and port-a-potty) could easily be fitted to keep the beer cold while lazing on the beach. This is a new take on the ‘bowrider’ style, with good looks, extraordinary speed and fantastic fuel economy.

CUDDY CABIN

The Growler 710 VT Cuddy is our third option for the ultra-efficient registered VT (Vapour Trail) hull shape used on the 6.5m platform. She boasts a surprisingly roomy cabin, with a double berth from which a table extends to create a dinette if required. A small fridge, small gas cook-top and port-a-potty can also be installed if desired. This little weekender is perfect for inland lakes or skipping out to the islands at a top speed or 45 knots (depending on engine choice). Exceptional ocean going ability is a key feature. The Cuddy can also be trailered and stored in the driveway during the week. Built from balsa-core Duflex panels, this tough little cat is perfect for those weekend trips with friends and family or a romantic retreat with a partner.

"I’m based in Malta, a small island in the Mediterranean. I’ve worked aboard luxury yachts for the past twenty two years.

I’ve wanted to refit, or build my own boat for a few years now, and took up a correspondence diploma course in Yacht and Boat building through MTA during the first Covid lockdown two years ago.

I’ve been aware of Schionning Designs International for some time, and know they have a good reputation from some of the Australian and South African crew I’ve worked with.

After contacting Robert and Tarryn about the 650VT I asked if it might be possible to lengthen the design a little, with an emphasis on increasing the usability of the foredeck / bow rider area - something that Robert was very helpful with.

After confirming the plan, the materials for the build arrived at my workshop in early April. First thoughts - what have I got myself into! But so far, with help from the design team at Schionning and a reasonable amount of research elsewhere I think I’m making good progress.

Reasons for building my own boat - and this design in particular.
1) I like the benefits a catamaran give over a monohull.
2) I had a particular layout in mind that I wanted to use.
3) The SDI Growler 710 VT is the perfect size for the workshop that I have. Ultimately, this is a test to see if I can complete a quality end product. The ultimate plan would be to work on designing and building something with a couple of cabins that my wife and I could use to tour the Mediterranean and beyond."

Prowler 1500

SDI Prowler 33 Cruiser Power Catamaran - SDI - Schionning Designs International

Prowler 1500

The Prowler 1500 is a semi-displacement power catamaran design, following a more traditional style in comparison to some of the more modern power designs such as the Growler Series.

The bows have been kept quite square and sharp, and the cabin features large wrap around windows and angular styling. The foredeck runs forward to the front of the bridgedeck providing a wide spacious area for sunbathing, enjoying a glass of champagne or giving storage space for dinghy or other cruising toys.

The layout is open plan and offers a surprising amount of interior space and accommodation due to the Prowler’s wide hulls—significantly wider than that of her Alaskan sisters. This extra width does allow a little more freedom when configuring the layout and combats the ‘stuffy' enclosed feeling that being down in the hull can bring.

The Prowler 1500 is a large displacement hulled cruiser that will sleep 4-6 family or friends comfortably.

Radical Bay 1060

Radical Bay 1060 Catamaran - SDI - Schionning Designs International 3

Radical Bay 1060

The 1060 would make a fantastic small cruiser and couple safely carry you and your crew to any tropical destinations.

The Radical Bay 1060 is the bigger sister to the 8000, and provides that little step up in accomodation, space and performance. Again a standard rig is an option, however the composite bi-plane carbon masts are still the recommended configuration.

Unlike the Radical Bay 1060 has a spacious hard-floored cockpit with ample seating for all the family and friends and comes with the option of either single aluminium mast or bi-plane rig.

The Radical Bay 1060 has a very usable interior with a tidy galley area, a head and shower aft port-side and accommodation for 6 people - 2 double and 2 single bunks. A small dinette doubles as the second double bunk with a fold down dining table.

The Radical Bay 1060 utilises strip planking construction to provide a cheaper, quicker and easier build. The boat can be transported in a shipping container in three sections should transportation be necessary. Whether you're looking for a simple, fun weekender or a light live-aboard, you cannot go past the Radical Bay 1060.

Radical Bay 800

Schionning Designs International Radical Bay 8000 Exterior CAD Renders

Radical Bay 800

Schionning Designs Radical Bay 800 is a small weekender or coastal cruising catamaran, that still has enough sea-keeping ability to cross an ocean or two. The bi-plane rig provides amazingly easy sailing. which truly must be witnessed to believe.

A standard rig is an option and is at the owner's discretion. There are a number of Radical Bay 800's on the water, and many have done very well in racing events in Australia and Asia.

For the Radical Bay 800, I have chosen a simple hull form, with a vee section forward to stop slamming running aft to a flat exit to reduce hobby horsing. The asymmetric hull shapes as used on most of our designs benefit the boat in a number of ways.

The layout is surprisingly comfortable for such a small cat especially with good speed being kept in focus: the fwd bunks are comfortable and an aft "double" can easily sleep two friendly people. I have added a cockpit in each hull, the cabin offers some protection but mostly to have a comfortable sitting position with good visibility protected from those annoying unexpected splashes that sneak up through the tramps now and again.

She is definitely the future, an amazing looking, fast, exciting, simple and cheap to build cat. No such thing? True until now. She is a very safe, easy to handle coastal cruiser, a little cat a couple could live on for months at a time and yet easily demounted to transport anywhere if sold.

Schionning Designs International presents the Arrow 1201 Catamaran,

The Arrow 1201 promises the same sailing experience and performance of the 1200 version yet with a revised interior and cockpit giving more options.

The Arrow 1201 has the same layout to the Arrow 1280s : 4 berths and 2 heads. Other layout options include twin owner’s hulls, or Stbd owner’s hull with Port guest hull, or 5x berths & 1x head/shower. See more details showing the 3 cabin version with stbd owner’s hull and port guest hull. The helm options are: Central Raised Helm (shown), bulkhead helm (twin or single), or dual tiller steering. The Stbd berth has been widened to be a full queen with great volume inside. This required a reshaping of the cockpit compared to the Arrow 1200. The Navigation table is now cleverly in the saloon allowing closet shelves below in port hull.
