I worked on this cargo cat for the Caribbean over the winter. It is designed to be rock bottom inexpensive to build. It will be built using a developed plywood half hull mold. Instead of core it will be solid skin with triaxial stringers. Internals and connectives are epoxy/plywood.
At first glance it may look similar to the powercat 89 but except for the reverse bows, nothing is similar. Instead of flare it merely has a spray deflector.
I finally wanted to render it and Monday I will get back to plotting out everybodys plans.

I would be interested in a 12 metre (40 foot) sailing version of these hulls for a skippered daycharters. Let me know if you plan to design something along these lines or if you have a similar existing design that is USCG approved for 20 passengers in open waters.
I have many USCG approved ones on my website. This unit will not be certified.
Playing with fire!
Intermodal rules do not apply for boat to boat container transfer. Intermodal=max weight around 20 short tones and even distribution for container boat to road or boat to rail.
If some private idiot loads the container in a port and eventually gets transferred to your cat???? Uneven 50-70 short tones do happen (a few per thousand).
not boat to boat. beach to beach. not that am involved with that part.
