Wharram Catamarans are built with the principle of flexibility. These Stone Age boats use rope everywhere other yachts use stainless steel.  All five crossbeams, which are connecting the hulls to each other, are lashed to the hulls with ropes. The shrouds holding up the masts are rope. The centre decking is all lashed with rope to the beams. Modern rope is a superb material. We trust in LIROS ropes for all lines, shrouds, lashings, halyards and sheets on board.

Rocna Anchor
» www.rocna.com

We are equipping both catamarans with Rocna anchors, each boat carries a 15kg main anchor and 10kg spare anchor. The Rocna anchors have been tested by independent yacht magazines and came out best. Though they resemble the German Bügel anchor they are superior in performance. As we may have to ride out a hurricane, we want the best.

"Released in early 2005 and representing the very latest in modern anchor design, the Rocna is a New Zealand developed "new generation" marine anchor. Its features include instant setting and superior holding power on most seabeds. The design is intended to address the issues that plague more traditional types, such as poor setting reliability and lack of roll-stability, and has achieved #1 results in recent major comparison testing."

Both catamarans have no hand rail. We are sailing 60 cm above water without guard rail protection. Therefore safety is for our crew most important. So we trust in SECUMAR life jackets.
