Design No 401 (Composite construction E-Glass and PVC foam)
The novel beam system is based on simple, sliding beam parts.
The central accommodation supports the beam system and provides a
comfortable saloon for the off-watch crew or non sailing family members.
The hulls tuck under each side in the narrow condition. The rudder and
outboard operate in either the narrow or the wide condition.
The expansion and the raising of the mast can take place while underway
under outboard motor - for least time spent at the slip.
KISS KAT BUILD, using KSS
A mould table, resin infusion and full foam sandwich structure
ensure the best light weight structure in the least build time.
The mould table provides a smooth gel coat finish for all of the
exterior except the joins and round bilge of the hulls. KSS half
hull shaping and kit assembly is the approach. The whole of the central
platform is first laid out flat from the drawings. Bend lines and
curved area are treated to allow shaping, before completing the inside
skin. The saloon sides and top are bent from a single panel, to which
the bulkhead and the forward panel are joined. Openings, recesses for
windows and edge treatment for joining are built into the parts while
being infused on the mould table. KSS build is unique to Kelsall Catamarans.
