AMD 14.8
Design Philosophy
The brief was to design a fast seaworthy catamaran with limited accomodation. Length
15metre maximum. Target Texel Rating 85. Example: the 20+ from Frits Dubois in Groningen,
Holland. This all within a limited budget
There are main ways to improve the capabilities of a catamaran, given length and
displacement. First one can lower the resistance and secondly increase the power of the
propulsion unit (eg. sails). Choosen is a combination of the two within a traditional sailplan.
A catamaran of 14,8 metres long, 8 metres wide at centres, sailarea of 120 square metres and
a L/B of 16,2 is taken as a starting point. Increasing the hull length with one metre would give
an increase in the daily avarage of 5 miles.
At the length of 14.8 metres a weight of 5 tons is feasable. Coupled with a sailarea of 120
square metres this will give a base-speed of 13.6 knots, if the area is increased to 150 square
metres the base speed is increased to 14.6 knots. This is an option but means heavier fittings,
mast and boom. The costs will be higher but the question is if it is effective. Reefing will be
needed earlier. To increase the base-speed I prefer to use extra sails, call them add-ons, like
a gennaker or jibtop.
To keep the cat as light as possible the hulls have no joinerywork except for the two bunks
(which are structural anyway) and the washroom and toilet. The accommodation is situated in
a pod hanging between the mastbeam and aftbeam. This pod contains a double berth, sittingarea, navigation station and the galley. The seat at the navigation station can be used as
berth.
When designing the hulls care is taken to create a small waterline width. The prismatic
coefficient (Cp) is average to high to perform well in the middle speedrange. When
optimalising the hull shape the interference between hulls is also taken in account. This is of
influence of the total width. The freeboard is kept at a minimum to reduce windage, costs and
weight.
The construction is due to budget limitations and building slot divided into two methods,
namely vinylester foam sandwich under water and the topsides and deck from marine ply in
the PCCB method. A horizontal bulkhead divides the hull vertically into two , creating a lot of
sideways stiffness and stiffening the boardcase. On this sole the forward storage space is
located and aft of the board case a bunk.
If the budget allows it the pod will be made from foam-sandwich, otherwise the pod will be
build from marine ply. The shape is such that the surfaces can be developed. Soles, frames
and stringers together with the PCCB building system all increase the stiffness of the structure.
The forebeam is made of an aluminium extrusion; the mastbeam is made from two large ,
commercially available GRP tubes, joined together. The aftbeam is a combination of marine
ply, and foam-sandwich.
The boards and rudders are made from foam-sandwich and some carbon.
The sloop rig is efficient and reasonable simple to control. A crab claw rig was considered as it
is more efficient per square metre, but it was also felt that it was a too big step at a time. A
120% jib was choosen for ease and also because any bigger genoa would not add
significantly to the driving force. Also was kept in mind that by enlarging the genoa a heftier set
of fittings would be needed, increasing the budget. In this configuration this jib will be sailed
quite comfortable into the higher wind speeds. and reefing will take place in the main. The
mainsail has a moderate roach to prolong life and reduce sheet tension.

HULL SHAPE, CONSTRUCTION and PROPULSION


HULL SHAPE
The stem is nearly vertical. Apart from being a pleasing one for the eye it is also a safe one;
for a given hull length there is a maximum of reserve buoyancy. To create a fine waterline
entrance the bow is V shaped. The V softens to standing ellipse, which flattens out aft to
provide buoyancy coupled with a good flat delivery. This also helps to dampen the pitching
motion. A moderate rocker is used to keep the keelline exit angle (delivery angle) low while the
turning abilities are not affected. The high prismatic coefficient (0.59) is coupled with a high L/B
ratio (16.2) to ensure low resistance at high speeds. The widest point of the hull is aft of the
Centre of Flotation, which gives sufficient loading capacity aft. The weight can be concentrated
aft what gives the catamaran an easy ride. The result is a hullshape that cuts easily through
the water, has a good ride and ample reserve buoyancy.
CONSTRUCTION
When calculating hull construction both the requirements of the CE norms as the Guide for
Building and Classing Offshore Racing Yachts issued by American Bureau of Shipping are
used as guidance. When practicable all laminating should be done by vacuum moulding.
The hulls and decks are built in a sandwich of 25 mm foam type HD75 with a glass/epoxy
reinforcement on both sides. Where needed aramide and/or carbon is added. The bulkheads
are made of 20 mm foam. Stringers, horizontal bulhead and frames are made from a foam
tophat covered with glass and epoxy. Where fittings are placed the foam is replaced by balsa
or plywood.
The layout of the hull is symmetrical apart from the galley. When building bulkheads, soles,
and trim they can be made twice thus saving production time.
Rudders are made of a stainless shaft with a foam/glass body. Boards are made of foam,
glass and epoxy. Carbon can be added.
Shroud plates are produced in stainless steel as we feel that it is safer and cheaper then
plates made of carbon/glass/epoxy.
To save money vinylester resin can be used on bulkheads and such, the drawback is that it
makes production complicated.
PROPULSION
The two outboard engines are placed as far forward as practicable against the mastbeam.
They are fitted on slides. This position and the fact that they can be lowered ensures that they
are always moving in deep water, even in high waves. The choice was for two 20 Hp engines
on petrol. As they nowhere near any open fire and are wel ventilated because of their position
the case of fire is very slim. Expected top speed approx 9 knots.
The steering gear is to be hydraulic.

SAILPLAN, RIGGING and FOILS


SAILPLAN
The size of the sail is such that a good performance may be expected, without early reefing.
The combination of 120% genoa, wingmast and main with moderate roach will insure this
performance without undue strain on rigging and hull. When the wind increases the genoa is
dropped in favour of a selftacking blade. The running rigging is kept as simple as possible.
Where practicable the halyards and controllines are led aft. The areas of the sails are related
to each other. Roller reefing of genoa is anticipated.
MAINSAIL
The mainsail is fully battened. This sail does not have an extreme roach. This lessens the
forces on the sail and prolongs the working life of the sail. The pull on the sheet will also be
less which makes more leisurely sailing. Four reefs are fitted and reefing is aided by
lazyjacks. If required a so called maindropsystem can be fitted. The area of sail reefed with
each succeeding reef does increase as the wind strength increases proportionally. The top
of the mainsail is made of a heavier cloth to facilitate sailing in heavy weather. This acts then
as a stormtrysail. The sail is fully battened, the spacing is such that in the top there are
relatively more battens. The result is that one can use less battens.
SOLENT (BLADE) JIB
This is an efficient high aspect jib kept for the mast. Sheeting is done on a curved track for
selftacking. The sheet is lead from the traveller to a block in the mast at the first diamond and
from there to a winch on the mast. This avoids having a sheet running over the trampolines.
The traveller controlline is lead back to the cockpit.
GENOA
Choosen is 120% genoa to avoid backwinding the wingmast. The power from such a sail is
amazing as she can be carried up to high windspeeds. Not fixed on roller reefing, she has to
be changed for the Solent jib. If a jibtop is often used it may be a good idea to use roller
reefing just to clear the genoa out of the way so the jibtop can do its work properly.
GENNAKER
A gennaker is tacked from a sprit, approx. 5 feet long. The cut of the sail depends on the
expected use by the owner. This sail is expected to work from 60 apparent. This sail is
expected to be used up to force 6, depending on crew.
JIBTOP
Tacked from the sprit not from the end but somewhere in the middle as this sail is used to
provide upwind power at light winds. We do not want her to induce leeway. Is flown from the
masttop.
STORMSAILS
A stormjib of approx. 12 m2 is designed. This sail is probably not needed.
SPARS
WINGMAST.
The engine of this catamaran. Built in stressed plywood or Strongplank. The rigging
consists of a forestay, two topshrouds (backstays) and one set of diamonds spreaders. Two
halyard winches. Main, jib and gennaker halyards and jibsheet are lead to the cockpit. Ducts

for cables, tricolour navigation/anchor light. Spreader lights. Steaming light. Fixing point for
wind direction/speed indicator, available from NKE (www.nke.fr). The weight of the wingmast
is not lower to that of an aluminium mast.
BOOM.
Aluminium. To be fitted for Lazy Jacks and a rack can be fitted. To have two lights to
illuminate the deck for parties.
Stoppers for reefing lines. Reefing winch.
LEEWAY PREVENTION
Two boards are fitted for optimum performance. A Naca 000 foil is used throughout. They
are constructed of foam, epoxy, and glass. Glass can be replaced by carbon if wished by the
client. Sacrificial tip. To increase performance assymmetrical boards can be fitted. These can
If required be angled to act as Bruce foils.
The rudders are of the high lift type foils. They are balanced. The rudder shaft will be tapered
to save weight. Provision for emergency tiller.

REMARKS
PERFORMANCE (calculated with K-Designs software)
A daily average of 334 miles (alumunium mast) can be expected. Comparison: The Lagoon
47: 246 miles, the Gold Coast 53: 284 miles, the Outremer 50: 288 miles, Outremer 50 Light:
301 miles and the Lexline 49: 295 miles (calculated with facts from brochures).
Reefing is expected at 18 knots apparent wind.
The Texel Rating is estimated to be 87.
SAFETY
The following safety measures are incorporated:
The first 240 cm of the bows of each hull consists of four watertight compartments.
The first bulkhead is a collision bulkhead.
The space under the storage room sole is a watertight compartment/crash zone.
The aftbeam is partly used as airchamber.
Escape hatches are provided for.
Concept, construction and execution in accordance to EC requirements category A.
By carefully locating the storage spaces it is avoided that the structure comes under
undue strain due to possible overloading.
The calamity pack can also be reached when capsized.
FITTINGS
When large journeys are planned one has to choose good fittings. Harken, Frederiksen and
Lewmar are three good brands with a large assortment of fittings. Further more is it
advisable to use blocks and carriages with ball bearings, so that all handlings still can be
done after five days of storm when the body condition is low. Selftailers are a good help,
when sailing shorthanded a must, although care should be taken that the lines are not
secured in a jammer and on a selftailer at the same time. The halyards and reefing lines are
lead to winches on the mast. The chainplates will be executed in stainless steel.
BUILDING TIME
It is helas not possible to give a precise time as it depends very much on the capabilities and
possibilities of the builder. Alexanders Multihull Design makes the drawings of bulkheads
and building moulds on full scale, just as those of rudders, daggerboards and/or keels. Both
side view and section are supplied. These drawings on full scale are made on shrink free
Mylar. More expensive than paper but it has the advantage that it does not tear so quickly
and does not change shape during the production period. If specially requested the interior
can be designed in CAD/CAM drawings to have the various parts cutout on computer
controlled milling machines. This way the production time can be shortened.
