Manufacturer Provided Description
The Maine Cat 30 is a lightweight, elegant cruising catamaran designed as the ultimate family cruising multihull. Her low profile and aerodynamic styling produce a "slippery" shape easily driven with a modest sail plan and small outboard auxiliaries. The Maine Cat 30 sails flat (very comfortable), has a draft of two feet (bring her up to the beach), and is a real sailing machine (light helm, points high, speeds to 12 knots). She is a delightful performance cruising catamaran with excellent visibility in any direction. All sail and engine controls are within easy reach of the helmsman. Her fine entry, buoyant ends, and excellent underwing clearance produce an easy, relaxing motion in a seaway. One can relax in the huge deck salon and aft cockpit areas of the 8-foot by 11-inch open bridgedeck. There are two styles of hard tops: the "original" more molded and enclosed top, or the "sport" hardtop. Both hardtops feature removable 40 mil acrylic windows to let in a cool breeze on a warm summer cruise. The hardtops provide 6-foot 4-inch headroom, and an optional aft full enclosure (with screens), converts the entire bridgedeck into an extra topside cabin. Enjoy sailing in all kinds of weather protected inside the pilothouse enclosure. Inboard facing companionway hatches can be left open or removed to provide easy access and generate a light, airy feeling below. Accommodations in the hulls are generous. The standard arrangement has two extra large double berths (57 in. x 6 ft. 8 in.) in the aft quarter of each hull. The port double converts to a comfortable dinette or perfect chart table. The galley is large, well ventilated, and provides ample counter space and storage. There is also a 44-inch wide single berth forward in the port hull. The master stateroom is in the starboard hull with hanging locker, changing area, and fully enclosed head with a shower. The interior has been kept very simple and elegant. Bulkheads and fabric headliners have been eliminated to provide an open, well-ventilated space, which is easy to keep clean. The Maine Cat 30 is built to the highest quality of workmanship possible. Skilled craftsmen follow a Maine tradition of building with integrity and caring for a job well done. This, combined with modern innovative designs and engineering expertise, produces wonderful sailing catamarans that will last a lifetime. The Maine Cat 30 hull shape has a beam to length ratio of 1:10 which yields a maximum waterline beam of 2 feet 11 inches when displacing 6,000 pounds. The Maine Cat 30 was designed with a large 2,000 pound payload capacity providing an extra margin of cruising comfort and safety. Buoyancy in the ends - the prismatic coefficient - is important to ensure the leeward hull is not driven under in a blow or "hobby-horse" in a short, steep sea. The Maine Cat 30 has a nice, deep forefoot and flaring topsides, which build up buoyancy rapidly when immersed. The deadrise aft is gradual and flattening in the underwater section. This provides ample reserve buoyancy when loaded and hydrodynamic lift at fast cruising speeds, under sail and power. Wetted surface has been minimized with computer aided fairing and hydrostatic analysis provided by AreoHydro using the latest version of MultiSurf. The rudders are protected with 9-inch "bumper-keels" which are not part of the main hull structural lay-up. The underwater foil on the Maine Cat 30 is a daggerboard in the starboard hull with uphaul and downhaul lines located on deck. The efficient daggerboard provides excellent windward performance and, since the boat only heels 3 or 4 degrees, the board does all the work. Shoal water sailing is achieved with the bumper keels providing the necessary lateral resistance. This arrangement is simple and saves the weight and expense of other more complicated systems. The fixed, balanced rudders are protected by the bumper keels located at the deepest section of the hull. The Maine Cat 30 is being built in female molds utilizing vinylester and polyester resins, bi-directional stitched fabrics, and vacuum bagged Core-Cell foam coring. All assemblies are finished with peel-ply interior surfaces and gelcoated to eliminate the need for expensive and heavy hull and deck liners. All interior cabinetry is vacuum bagged foam core construction bonded in place. Maintenance has virtually been eliminated with simple, elegant design solutions using composite materials instead of metals and wood. Additional strength and safety have been added to the hulls below the waterline with additional fiberglass reinforcement.
