Big dreams of alizéen sailing & small budget

Photography of the construction of the catamaran KD- 980 - completion of the hull-302x202Small budget for this young couple with big dreams of alizéen sailing. In order to be affordable, the boat had to be simple to build and light.

The epoxy/plywood construction is unbeatable in this context.

KD 860 designed by Bernt Kohler, with whom we had already collaborated on the Duo 800 was very close our requirements. Customers wanted to have some more volume in the saloon, the kitchen and the chart table.

With the agreement of the architect, we could modify the plan and add 60 cm at the waterline, and also add a skirt, very comfortable in offshore cruising.
