Included here are detailed bid and estimating plans for a half dozen small cruising catboats, from 17' to 22'.

They present a practical and functional approachstrong to catboat design. There are both keel and centerboard cats. The keel cats, with no centerboard trunk intruding into the cabin, and even those that do have a centerboard, have plenty of room to work around it in the cabin.

All have cabins and cruising accommodations, and have classic, traditional styling. Alternate rigs are also included for some of the designs, plus there are photos of the completed boats.
