Nutshell 26 interior going in

The Nutshell prototype is being outfitted with galley and heads. The engines for the prototype are 15HP diesels.

Pics from before the intro

The Nutshell prototype is nearing completion. The hulls, deck, bridgedeck and coachroof are from female moulds. Also hatches, transoms, liner, space-frame and ceiling beams. Looking good.

Happy 2022! Hulls are complete

The hulls of the prototype are now complete and ready to receive the bridge-deck. They’re looking good in pure white. Further finishing is required and the moulds will be polished for the first production hull. In the meantime we will start installing systems and testing the de-mounting system.

There aren’t many catamarans designed in this way and the usual problem is you end up with tiny little cabins and squashed bathrooms. With our route you get a queen-size island berth with wrap-around views, an en-suite shower and a separate loo, … Continue reading True getaway for a couple (plus one)
