The Catalac 9M was Tom Lack’s first venture into catamaran design.
This design was envisioned as the successor to Bill O’Briens venerable Bobcat Catamaran. They would be safe cruisers, aimed squarely at the family marketplace. Thought of as motor sailors because of the boxy design, these boats actually sail very well, don’t heel while sailing and with the 6′ 3 inches of headroom in the hulls, no one feels boxed in or forced to go ‘camping’.
The Catalac 9M was constructed with solid fiberglass, chined hulls with lots of rocker and deep “V” sections forward which flattened out at the stern. The combination of “V” hulls and rocker, eliminated the need of keels while providing what was thought to be enough grip for windward performance.
This particular Catalac 9M is in great condition and is well maintained, she benefits from a new Port engine in 2022 and rigging changed in 2019.
she is on her Berth (also available) in Weymouth marina and she is ready for viewing.
