CATAMARANS 1300 & 1500 ALUMINUM CONSTRUCTION.

ALUMINUM BOAT PLANS - These plans feature simple STEP by STEP CONSTRUCTION - these catamarans can be built by any person with aluminum welding skills ... NO previous boat building skills are needed ... all  you need is to follow the plans and you will be able to build a beautiful aluminum catamaran for yourself and your family's happy days on the water.


The CATAMARAN 1300 & 1500 are designed for family use and the accommodation was laid out with that in mind. The accommodation layouts of both these boats are similar in all respects ... the only difference is that the Cat 1500 offers more spacious arrangement while the Cat 1300 will be a little less expensive to build and equip.

The aluminum building technique is well proven as Bruce Roberts has used similar techniques in building radius chine mono-hulled and catamaran sail boats since the early 1980'S.

The Cutter rig shown here is an easily handled arrangement and ideal for a family cat that is capable of cruising wherever you want to want to cruise.

The low aspect keels will give adequate windward performance and have the advantage of allowing these cats to be beached for anti-fouling or just to enjoy the beach with your family.

The study plans for the Cat 1300 & Cat 1500 cover many sheets of drawings and include all information on the aluminum construction methods, all engineering and rig plans together with STEP by STEP photos showing the aluminum construction methods as used in building Bruce Roberts Catamarans.
