Small WIG craft like the Flarecraft or Airfish are legally classified as boats (ie no pilot's licence) but the vehicles are much more like airplanes than boats and require a pilot's skills to fly in inclement conditions.

What I find particularly interesting is the fact that an owner of a power vessel (and 5 previous ones) would commit to a new vessel design with a sailing rig on it!! I applaud most all attempts to resurrect the motorsailer concept, as I feel it has been a sorely neglected subject in this modern boating world. But here I would like to offer an alternative solution to satisfy that owner?s requirements. With reference to the subject of stability look at the massive efforts and expense on MitSeaAh. Please excuse me just a moment while I digress to consider the fuel needs of these big engines.
Per the requirements for 10 guest (5 staterooms) plus owner, and lots of deck space, I don?t think there is much doubt this can all be achieved in the catamaran; and in very nice privacy manner.
Excessive beam is the one attribute of a catamaran most sighted as a negative aspect, particularly in finding docking space. As I look back over this letter I almost feel the need to apologize for the negative overtones I?ve conveyed on MITseaAH.
Sounds like this bucket in Cat form would have to pass up on St Georges , the great spot to stay in Bermuda , as the channel in is quite narrow. Shame to miss Doubble Diamond Ale , and ICE CREAM, in the same shop , only to have to put up with the commercial port with the great view of the cruise ship sides. Location: St Augustine Fl, Thailand Monohull Motor Sailers, Motor Sailors Several of my postings on this subject thread had been rather critical of a couple of new motor sailer designs.
The new generation of motorsailers might be the biggest design evolution since the Bermudan rig.
But why bother with a Capsizing Cat ?, when the same building costs will get a FASTER monohull boat , although longer. Originally Posted by brian eiland Several of my postings on this subject thread had been rather critical of a couple of new motor sailer designs. Just finished reading two articles you wrote on motorsailers, and I can tell you are ?hooked? (to use a fishing term) on them as much as I am. Adding a bigger and bigger engine (or twins) is not the most efficient solution, although it does more truly exist as a MOTORsailer. The crux of the problem is when we try to overcome some basic laws of nature in trying to push the monohull form pass its ?hull speed? in an efficient manner, whether power or sail. In the ever-continuing effort to define the term motorsailer, I particularly liked your Supreme Court Justice quote, ?We know it when we see it?.
Dashew?s vessel is not a motor sailer as it has no rig, but it is an honest attempt at efficient cruising under power. Location: alameda CA Methinketh perhaps Brians' just a bit of an unprincipled, opportunistic ****, but then again, that's just based on a very cursory and not-very-well-researched impression.
One thing I especially like about the FPB design is the use of two booms for a simple sailing rig (never waiting for swing bridges, no useless windage aloft) and doubling as stabalizer outriggers.

I just feel the motor sailer concept as a whole has been sorely neglected, and needs some OMMPH added to it. I know how long many of us preached the multihull concept in the early days only to combat many naysayers.

Location: Ontario Canada I considered a reply to Yokebuttocks (his handle says it all) but like his ilk in the amateur radio world the worst thing you can do is acknowledge their presence.

Two such deep-V hulls, connected by a deck that usually includes a cockpit or cabin, comprise a catamaran, the most popular multi-hull powerboat.Three hulls make a trimaran, which are more common in sailboats than powerboats.

They are designed to navigate many different types of waterways so you can pursue many different species of fish. Generally very simple craft, featuring riveted or welded aluminum hulls and bench seating, they can be operated in fish-friendly places - shallow water, coves, inlets - not many other boats can reach.
They can float and run in water less than two feet deep and are ideal for fishing with two to three people on board. Designed by internationally acclaimed Roger Hill, these off shore power catamarans have economy, safety, comfort and speed.

Not if the flying boat can hover, fly in surface effects and fly like an aerial sports car, it can also land on land.
As yet I have been unable to find suitable plans and in fact can find very little on Wave piercing Multihulls.
I simply pointed out that the hydrofield is not a wave-piercer by any stretch of the imagination. This unusual and challenging design is receiving quite a bit of boating press at present, and apparently a lot of interest at this past years? Ft. I really can appreciate the extraordinary efforts on the behalf of the creators of this vessel. A 15 ton lead bulb, suspended on a stainless fin keel (total 24 tons), that pivots up on precision-machined bearing blocks from a 21 foot draft to 7.5 feet. Luxury can be provided as well, particularly with attention to light weight construction as desired by the multihull vessel, and utilized on MitSeaAh.
But in this case I detected an owner willing to ?moor? his vessel in front of his home, and I imagine he might be willing to do so in Bermuda, Newport, Nantucket, etc when available dock space is limited, or NA on short term notice. On the contrary, I really appreciate the efforts of her creators to solve the problems and produce a very unique new yacht. This posting counters that negativity, and introduces a real good article on monohull motor sailors I ran across as I was researching MITseaAH. Motor sailing is the dark secret of most cruisers; ask any cruiser how often they run the engine while sailing and the answer may surprise you, given that they are on a sailboat, designed to make way without the use of an engine. This is the dark secret of cruisers; with the larger engines now being put in cruising boats, cruisers often fire up the cast iron gennie whenever their speed falls below, say, four knots. As you said, ?A big engine will only mean you will be able to maintain speed in adverse conditions: You won't go any faster? I think you made a very important observation, ?Accept that the virtue of a motorsailer is that you can make higher average speeds, which is done by eliminating the slow speeds and continuing to make decent way even in the absence of wind?. There seems to be an increasing demand by the public for just a little more speed than that offered by the truly efficient displacement trawler.
I think this is particularly applicable to the increase in both sailing and powering performance available with the multihull planform over that of the monohull.
Here also in the strictly power category the multihull form will present a formidable challenge to the monohull form?.just look at the variety of power cats already unfolding.
I'm just a little annoyed that it's not my own design, because he has come to so many of the same conclusions I have, for the same reasons, and much the same solutions. Stabalizers, sometimes called paravanes, have much potential for offshore yachting and deserve more attention and development.
By using only the windward one I'm told that the drag is approximately cancelled out by the increased righting moment, plus the boat heels less and rolls a lot less. Well now some of us feel the need to preach the motorsailer concept, and particularly the multihull addition to the concept. However if I ever got the urge to go wandering around the world again I would probably choose something like Dashews Unsailboat. One of the nicest things about motoryachts is that shady aft deck where you can put tables and chairs and sleep there in the tropics when it's too hot to be inside.

The latest doubling of the crude oil prices might just spur more developments in the motorsailor arena. They were really challenged to develop solutions to a tough number of requirements by the client.
Special hydraulics to raise and lower the keel, as well as special hydraulic vaporizing considerations to account for the ?accidental grounding? of this huge assembly. I believe it has been estimated that MITseaAh will burn about 60 % of her fuel load on this 25kt dash out the 630 miles from Newport to Bermuda. He has the toys onboard, and the nice stern boarding platform to make this connection with shore readily accessible. I can only hope the next time they are presented such a challenge, that they give some consideration to the catamaran vessel form. This was written by Greg Jones of BlueWater Sailing magazine so I will not copy it to this posting, but rather give a couple of brief excerpts, and then tell you the site address were you can read the full text if the subject interest you. But the reality is that regular use of the engine is almost a necessity, even with good and fair winds. Sailboats only have to sail, but motor sailors have to perform well with two very different motive forces. This allows them to plan their voyages with greater accuracy as regards arrival times and passage durations. In other words bigger engines for faster top end speeds aren?t the answer in defining the monohulled motorsailer, even thought the marketing guys would have you believe so. So now we see more and more twin-engined trawlers, with greater and greater HP, that in reality are going beyond the definition of trawler?they are becoming motoryachts in trawler clothing.
Alternatively we can look at pushing longer slimmer shapes that exhibit less hull speed resistance. There are still many boaters that are unwilling to accept these very compelling attributes. The choice between multi and mono for a motorsailer is a matter of tradeoffs as I see it, each would have it's own merits and would be a matter of preference.
When stuck in the heavy seas after a blow with no wind, there were times I would have paid anything to have a set of those aboard.
I guess I just spent too much time in the past selling the multihull sailing concept, and now feel a need to push the motorsailer, mono or multi. Dashews design would be a good choice if you planned to do a lot of miles offshore, and wanted to visit places where moorage is scarce. I always liked mooching a cold beer from people on motoryachts when it was 50 degrees C down below in my keelboat. Anglers like catamarans for their high-speed performance and fishing stability, but they also make great sport boats, performance boats and even cruisers.Fans say catamarans handle a bit differently, but insist that learning to drive one is easier than mastering a conventional mono-hull boat. Cayman Island Angling Club is a member of the International Game Fish Association and the Billfish Foundation. Take your family and friends out for a cruise on any one of the 3 models and you will be sure to enjoy generous and pleasant accommodations.
There was also a very good, extensive article & illustrations in the Apr 04 issue of Yachting World. Primary among the reasons for this, apart from driving the boat, is the need for electricity. When done right the solution results in a boat that is comfortable, relatively fast (or at least consistent) and has more room than a comparably sized sailboat.
In the sail mode we have to space these slimmer hulls apart some considerable distance to get stability to carry the sailplan.
I'm attaching a drawing of a very good type of stabalizer which seems to be unknown outside of the west coast of N America, but has been used successfully on sailboats. On the other hand for off the beaten path places where beam is not a problem, the cat is the hands down winner. The wave piercing hull seems to be gathering momemtum and from what I understand gives a better rough water capability as it lengthens the Keel.
Now I'll post a letter I recently wrote to the creators of the new 156' MitSeaAh motor sailor.
All of this is totally unnecessary on the big catamaran, as it gains its stability by a spread-out- form, saving tons of weight, cost, and complication, and damage potential.
At an average approaching $3.5 per gal (between here and Bermuda) this trip will run about $428K per one way trip.
While some cruisers run their genset instead of the engine, it is still nice to get that extra few knots out of the boat, and the engine prefers to have a load on it, so why not engage the prop and get to that palm-lined island a few days quicker?
I think some of the renewed interest in the motorsailer concept is the result of these observations?so they say lets add some more OOMPH in our sailboats. But wait a minute, in a motor sailer our back up propulsion source is the sailing rig, so twin engines is overkill in most situations. I think this discussion is more closely related to my original posting that started this thread. Plus we don?t need stabilizers at all, nor their complications, particularly those autogyro-controlled flaps on MITseaAH.
With a design that provides an easily driven hull and adequate sail area, the boat will derive maximum efficient speed from each. I have come across only one intentional design that functions thusly(not yet built to my knowledge) and have seen the Sail Rocket take flight(unintentional accident). At the 127' upper limit it would look ?in proportion? (aesthetics) on a catamaran from 100 to 120 feet. And we might have been capable of maintaining a higher average transit speed in adverse conditions. And its lower center of effort (than a sloop) could allow for the use of a smaller beam to maintain sailing stability.
