James Wharram design, Tikiroa Pahi 26.
A fantastic and well built example of a James wharram design.
Built in Austria 2009 by Helmut Pichlmaier, an Austrian boat-builder.
It must be noted that Helmut modified the original design, adding extra height to the cabins.
This can be seen from the photos, it gives standing room midships of both hulls.
The boat comes with the original plans in German, materials list and rigging plans.
Hulls and decks +
I repainted the hulls, decks and beams 3 years ago with Joltun 2 pack epoxy paint.
She has a 50 cm draft, unladden.
Each hull has two berths with a simple matress on each.
Under each berth are storage lockers.
Rig and Rigging +
The rig is a wishbone rig, with the mast stepped on the middle beam.
The running rigging and standing rigging are in perfect condition.
The wishbone boom does need repair.
Masthead light and wind gauge.
Main sail, Stay sail, Blister, Genoa and Yankee.
The sails are in mint condition.
Made to order by Jeckels.
Good as new.
Tohatsu 9.9 hp long shaft 2008.
Perfect condition, running very well and regularly serviced.
Last serviced 2021.
3x12volt batteries run a very simple 12v system.
Nav lights, internal lights, hummingbird 700 series nav plotter, depth gauge.
I would recommend the new owner to fit a small efficient solar panel for charging.
Ground Tackle +
CQR anchor >br>
Small grapnel anchor
Chain approx 20 metres, lead rope 30 metres.
4 mooring snubbers and mooring warps.
HH life jackets x 4.
Galley & Plumbing +
No through hull fittings, therefore no plumbing.
Keep it simple. Think camping on the water.
No galley equipment included.
Galley area itself is very basic.
Currently ""Bucket and chuck it".
Jerry cans for water.
There is a samll dingy and 2.5 hp honda outboard engine, not included in the price.
However, if the new owner would like to purchase them seperately, I am open to discussing this.
Lee Boards +
The catamaran sails very well as she is.
However, the builder did not include the lee-boards in his construction.
They are not essential, and many people leave them out.
The plans contain all of the drawings and materials to construct them if wanted.
I have been working as a professional wooden boat builder for the past 20 years.
I surveyed the boat myself when I bought her in 2017.
I have completed all of the maintenence repairs myself.
There are a few jobs to do on her before she is ready to sail.
I was going to complete those tasks myself, but I do not have time. Therefore, I am selling her below her market value.
Jobs to be done (from owner) +
There are a few small jobs to be before she goes in the water.
The after-most beam and boom both need repairing.
Also, the hardware (locks etc) to the hatches need to be refitted. I did not get a chance to that since the last paint job.
In the end, there are some small pieces of repair and touching up, but nothing major.
Nothing that a week's work would not do. I think that the price reflects this.
Owner Comments +
Probably the most notable sail, for both me, the crew and the boat, was the journey from Fredrikstad, in the east of Norway, 420NM to Hardanger Fjord, on the west coast of Norway.
It really put our little vessel through her paces and she proved to be a very sea worthy vessel and fast under sail.
We clocked 11 knots on one passage.
She now sits on her road trailer, under a ventilated tarpolin, in Muros, Galicia, Spain.
She is available for viewing by appointment only.
