Our Story

Person on the Nutshell 26

Nutshell Catamarans, penned by Phil Southwell Design and built by Dylan Soares de Melo and his team at Further Composites, believe that life on the ocean should be accessible
to everyone.

The primary design philosophy of our boats is to meet that expectation, by allowing sailors and non-sailors alike to transition onto a life on the water in an affordable way. We have obsessed over simplicity and accommodating everyday luxuries, pioneering a green, hassle-free sailing experience.
