Proteus 10.6m Sailing Catamaran
This Lavranos Marine Design is a perfect small family ocean cruising cat. It is designed to offer a sufficient load carrying capacity to do ocean crossings with a family, at low cost and capable of amateur construction with a minimum amount of labour and skill. This simple, strong, fast, comfortable and cheap boat is also aimed at being practical & enjoyable for local use. She is also small enough for easy shorthanded use.
The interior consists of four berths
(two doubles + 2 singles), a saloon settee, a practical galley, and a toilet compartment, all with standing headroom.
She is configured with two machinery and keel variations; A 4 stroke 20HP outboard on a hinging nacelle is fitted for economy, as is tiller steering, with "kick up" rudders. The other choice is that a saildrive "single cylinder baby diesel" can be fitted, as can fixed mini keels.
The rig is the simplest possible, with a pair of cap shrouds and headstay triangulated, single diamond. The sail inventory is essentially a mainsail, a roller furler jib, and a storm jib. Optional: Genneker.
