Built by Gibbs Boat Company, this exciting catamaran was designed by J.R. MacAlpine-Downie & Dick Gibbs and this design won the “Yachting One-of-a-kind regatta” of 1963 held in Miami Florida. Rod MacAlpine-Downie is known for his Chrysler Bucaneer and Mutineer designs, but he really was deep into multihull design early on and his famous Hellcat in the 1960’s won the International Catamaran Challenge (which by the way, proved to be her best on the wind). Hellcat “Thai” was first to the weather mark beating well sailed Ravens, Thistles, E Scows, FD’s and others in the Yachting One-of-a-kind 24 mile event. Another outstanding feature, besides performance of the Shark Cat is the fact that she can be folded in the middle bringing it to a 5’3” width to be placed on a trailer and ready for the road without permits.  In a matter of 5 minutes the boat can be expanded and ready to step the mast and then launch. Boat has been in storage for a few years.  Not used anymore.
