This cleverly designed seagoing 11 metre CRUISER, WilPower, is a Bob Oram design, built as a motor sailer using ATL Composites balsa/epoxy "DUFLEX" sheets. Roof is epoxy/glass/foam.
Bob Oram began the build and continued supervision of his experienced son Sam, his friend Ben with final completion by Bevis Bryant.
Registered in water January 2012 but only fully fitted out in early 2013.
See Australian Multihull World, Sept. 2018 for details of the build and detailed description of the boat.

In 2013 I motor-sailed from Bribie Island to Lizard Island in FNQ and back - living my dream - but that's another story!

This catamaran is essentially two narrow canoes, 10m waterline length, with a spacious boat built above and between them weighing in total only 3 tonne.
The shape of the bows (cf Americas Cup Cats and Brisbane city cat) reflects the modern trend to wavepiercing fine entry hulls and a full 10m waterline with low wetted area. This provides easily driven hulls with very little wash at any speed.
Above a chine the flotation comes into force and creates the large internal volume.
Twin 60hp Yamaha 4strokes provide plenty of power.
Cruise 8 -13kts, max 17kts.
140L fuel X 4,200L X 2 water
12v Hot water system.
A perfect boat for picnics, family cruising, and Coastal Passages and is set up for easy single handed use economical to motor/ sail up to 15kts in all usual boating conditions.
Designed to beach on sand and dry out. The 7.5m mast lowers forward easily (using the sail sheet winch) enabling passage under low overhead structures such as trees or bridges.

Moored, Bribie Island.
