What is it? We'll tell you what it is - catamaran world domination! Seriously, has sailing ever seen such an explosion of these things? And while you are busy answering that, answer this: What is it?

From space. The mother cat lies somewhere in an old, abandoned yard and lays eggs. Someone should go on a mission before this continues.

These things are to be seen every where. Made popular by mostly fat older women that do not like to heel. No anchorage or body of water has been spared. Caribbean charter boats are almost all cats now. The charterers drive them around like trawlers since most of them are not real sailors. They take up twice the space at boatyards and marinas, and require twice the fossil based resources to build. Catamarans are ubiquitous. Bullshit marketing gone wild...not to mention they (cats) are generally unattractive vessels, but the Newbie consumers obviously think they are sexy. In another 20 years our shores will be littered with the abandoned hulks of these houseboats.

A "FAT Cat" with so much windage it doesn't even need sails living proof that odd people who mate with monkees can design multi-hulls.

Obviously some of these posts haven't taken the time to look at Schionnings specs. The standard version is 15.45 M LOA, 7.8M BOA ,a L to B ratio of 16.8:1 and 5000K disp and been clocked over 25kts. The cruising version I expect to be slower if it follows the same design differences between the 17 and the 17C with slightly more disp and less L to B ratio. Goes to show opinions are like AH's everyone's got one but nobody bothers to keep and open mind..........until that cat whizzes right by them. I've owned everything from a Macgreggor 36 , Stiletto 30 and an Offshore 40 and would love to have this cat!

There's nothing like the thrill of level sailing at 25knots.........................

New schionning 17c g force.
The 15 gforce Mojo and Chill Pill are realy cool and very fast boats. I doubt there is a cruising boat out there that would come close to these 2 in speed.

No masts. Funny bowsprit. I guess a kite boat.

Offshor sailor writes the essence: one great cat. Friends aboard their own homebuilt Shionning are 3/4 around the globe, just doing it. Wyzass comments are entertaining, but salutes to the Adventurers out there, cat or mono, just living our dreams.

Once the monohull lobotomy we are born with is reversed, the awakening sees all those with functioning grey matter eventually wake up:

Level fast sailing.
No wasted lead being sucked out of the planet to keep boats upright based on the most backward physics.
Overpriced marinas charge on length, so why park a triangle when a cleverer person will park a rectangle there and use THE WHOLE BERTH.
Chicks love lying on nets, not sticking heads through strangling lifelines with bruised butts.

Even the most diehard skiff/dinghy/leadmine champions are eventually moving to fast comfort for the fun years so they can pull the sabot mums off the lifelines while there is still life in them.

The Schionning above is one of many leaders in the game, and a couple about to be released from McConaghy China factory will lift the game even more.

Level and Fast.

This is obviously the latest G-Force Schionning design following on from the 16 metre cats 'Mojo' and 'Chill Pill' with the only difference being they have radically changed the cabin. It is such a shame that a highly esteemed design office such as Schionning Designs can not be original. This new cabin is an exact copy from the Stealth Design Cats now being built by Asia Catamarans. The Cabin design on the Stealths was created 8 years ago is the signature feature so really disappointing Schionning have stooped so low. Get original guys!
