Black Cat, Dudleys own boat

Affordable Performance.

This one was for me! For the first time in my professional design career I was the client. I drew her to be the type of boat that I enjoy - light, responsive, fast and fun.

She also had to be quick to build for only one or two people and fit a terminally ill wallet.
Launched in 1995, I have crossed the South Atlantic three times on her and experienced a run of nearly 250 miles in 24 hours and a top speed of nearly 22 knots.

~ More conservative version, with masthead rig and shallower keel. More info.
