Sailing catamaran TIKI 38'
RB Power &
Sailing has been requested to
build a Tiki 38 based on the
well known and appreciated
design of James Wharram.
During the construction, the owner of the project, an
Australian gentleman, decided to deeply modify the structure, redesign the
hulls and building in cedar strip planking instead of plywood as foreseen by
the original plans.
The boat has been completed with honeycomb decks, honeycomb
sandwich interior and furniture.
The final result is a much lighter vessel, that is floating
about 5 inches above the expected designed waterline.
This construction has been an experiment and a "one of a
kind" project for the Yard.
