Wharram Builders and Friends

A Photo & Discussion Forum for Wharram Design Enthusiasts

Hi I'm JL, I'm new to the site.

It's an honor to have the chance write on this forum. :-)

I'm about to build a Wharram.

What type and configuration you suggest for maximum speed performance?

Tiki 30? Tiki 38? Tiki 46? And what sails and rig type?

I would like to build a superfast ocean/coastal cruiser. I don't care much about comfort.

Thank you in advance for the wise answers ;-)

I'm not a fan of speed at sea, but I like to work well a sailboat. A few years ago, I designed and built the little brother of my future catamaran with similar dimensions to Tiki21 and the same spirit of construction. I have been at a gathering of wharrams compare with Tiki21 his qualities, and I must say, on equal terms, I was more powerful. I also always with the same small catamaran make the connection between two islands to the average of 8.5 knots. I refer you to my page on my blog with the photo of the little brother.

Je ne suis pas fan de vitesse en mer, mais j'aime faire bien marcher un voilier. Il y a quelques années, j'ai conçu et construit le petit frère de mon futur catamaran avec les dimensions similaires au Tiki21 et le même esprit de construction. j'ai pu lors d'un rassemblement de wharrams comparer avec un Tiki21 ses qualitées, et je dois dire que à conditions égales, j'étais plus performant. j'ai également toujours avec le même petit catamaran effectuer la liaison entre deux iles à la moyenne de 8.5 noeuds. je vous renvoie à ma page sur mon blog avec la photo du petit frère.
