SC38 Sailing Catamaran

This boat is designed as cruising catamaran built in flat panels of sandwich (either foam or honeycomb). We use proven hull shape from our previous boats, and completely re-shaped the deck and cabin according to recent styling trends.

Options with low aspect ration skegs or daggerboars are available.
