Catbird 16′ Launched.

Finally I have time to post photos of the Catbird 16′ that I built in 2010. The owner launched the boat earlier this year and was very pleased with the results. He was kind enough to forward on these photos.

As you can see she rides quite high when empty but the owner says she settles right down when the crew are aboard.

Since her launch she’s been sailing around Galway Bay, the Lake District in England and now calls Scotland home. There’s even talk of her entering the Great Glen Raid next year.

She has drawn many admiring glances from other boaters wherever she goes and with her matching tender she really is as functional as she is pretty. The tender fits neatly upside down in the cockpit for trailering.

For information on pricing and to discuss having your own custom boat built why not give Tiernan a call at +353 (0)28 38973 or +353 (0)86 158 69 37 or contact me via email.
