Designers of unique, safe and stable double-canoe style sailing catamarans.
James Wharram is the pioneer of offshore multihulls, making his first Atlantic crossing by catamaran in 1956 and the first ever West to East North Atlantic crossing by multihull in 1959. His designs are based on 60 years of practical, hands-on experience of building and ocean-sailing catamarans.
Designs from 14′ – 63′ are available for self-building in ply/epoxy with very detailed, easy to follow Plans. We now also offer the new Mana 24 trailer catamaran as a CNC ply/epoxy kit, produced in Cornwall.
Several franchised yards offer professionally built Wharrams.
Thousands of Wharram catamarans can be found in all parts of the world.
