    Default Catboat Kit

    Anybody know of a company that offers a catboat kit? Something bigger that 14 feet or so. I've looked at the popular boat plans/kits offered by the usual companies. Traditional , single mast , gaff rig. As far as I can tell no one offers a kit.

    Are you familiar with the Bolger Bobcat? Simple enough to build, but if you really must have a kit you could hire someone with a CNC machine to make one for you.

    Instant Boat has paper patterns of the parts, for Bobcat, which is very close to a kit. Frank

    Length to beam isn't as extreme as a 'cat boat' and the aesthetic is slightly different but the Ebihen 15 & 16 is a CNC clinker ply kit which is pretty close in layout to what you're after.

    I do really like that boat . I know Viver boats from Clint Chase. That's a beautiful boat! I'll look into it.
