Skoota Power Catamaran Designs
Woods Designs specialise in the design of power catamarans for both home and professional builders.
At Woods Designs we have always believed that designers should build and use their own boats. As a result, since 1980 we have built a total of 18 catamarans, ranging from a 14' beach cat to the 35' performance cruising catamaran Banshee. Boats have been built in sheet ply, foam sandwich, strip cedar as well as several catamarans built using grp moulds (that have also been built by us).
Most have been built in our garden, and all with very limited tools and boatbuilding skills. So we know at first hand the problems that home boatbuilders face. The resulting boats have been used as full size test bed for new ideas, while, of course, building the boats ourselves helps ensure that the plans are fully detailed and that backyard builders can build them.
We also built the prototype Skoota 20 power cat in our garage for our own use. However we had the first Skoota 28 professionally built for us in 2012 to use as a coastal cruising boat in N America.
If you do not want to build yourself and are interested in having a catamaran built for you then a number of yards round the world build our catamarans on a one off basis, please contact us for more details.
