Complete, clear and detailed plans to build your own Wharram Catamaran, that have often been described as a 'course in boat building'. All Wharram building plans are drawn for the first time builder, so anyone with a modicum of practical ability can build one of our designs. Wharram designs are all based on decades of actual building and sailing experience of the boats.

Wharram Study Plans are intended to help you decide if a particular boat design is for you. They provide more detail than is available in the Design Book. The most important part of the Study Plan is the Materials List, which will list the major boat building materials requirements so you can cost your project in your own area.

To celebrate the 60th anniversary of James' pioneering voyage west across across the Atlantic on Rongo, the first catamaran to do so, we are reprinting the original Building Plans of this design, which come in a presentation box-set including a photo book, stories of further voyages, plus a signed copy of James’ book 'Two Girls Two Catamarans'.
