    Probably not a good deal. Interesting old cat though.

  • I'm guessing no sails. The Phoenix 18 catamaran has been discussed here before. https://www.thebeachcats.…ms/viewtopic/topic/12561

    QuoteThe Phoenix is a Rod Macalpine Downey design that is the little brother of the Shark catamaran that is still in production. Your boat is very likely made by Skene boats Ltd. that were located at 19 B Ceaser Ave in the west end of Ottawa. Don Skene who started Skene boats was well ahead of his time as I have been told.

    I worked at Skene boats in the late 70s and we produced the last Phoenix Cat for a customer who was replacing one of the first production boats. We used parts that were left over from other builds and old original parts from his boat in order to got the last one on the water.

    The boat sails well and is in almost every way a little brother of the shark cat (10x 20 platform). http://sharkcatamaranclass.org/

    There are not a lot of them left
