CATBIRD 18 was designed as a shallow draft sailboat with cruising accommodations for two adults and one or two children. A Vee berth is forward and large quarterberth is to port. A self bailing cockpit and effective sprit boom rig combine to provide a capable pocket cruiser. Look for a design review in Boat Design Quarter (No. 3).
Glue and screw construction is 1/2" plywood and epoxy over straight frames. Plans include: materials, lines, construction, and sail plan. A full size frame plan is available.
Estimated cost for quality construction materials (not including power or sails) is $12000. This cost includes a high level of outfit and finish you can be proud of after putting the effort into building this fine boat.
