The Quattro 14 is a single-trapeze racing catamaran based on the Quattro 16.
Designed by renowned multihull sailor and designer Richard Woods, the Quattro hulls are built from sheet plywood using the stitch-and-glue construction method, making them stiff and lightweight.
The Quattro 14 has a hull shape similar to the Pixie, but with the addition of small skegs which help windward performance. It also has a larger, more sophisticated rig and a trapeze for extra speed and power.
This catamaran is for those who want to race, either singlehanded on the trapeze, or with two light crew.
The Quattro has aluminium tube crossbeams which simply bolt into the hulls to form a very rigid structure. The rig from an older beach cat can be used, to save time and money making a new one. Total build time ready to paint is about 150 hours.
The Quattro 14 catamaran plans include detailed specifications for building and rigging the boat. The quality and clarity of the plans ease the construction of this boat, though you still need to be confident of your plans-reading ability.
A complete materials list is supplied with the plans. All dimensions are in metric units.
