What we wanted was a light, quick catamaran for two persons but one which does not capsize or fly a hull in strong winds and which has the largest deck space possible. The boat had to be strong enough to withstand habitual beaching and has lots of storage space to carry gear and provisions for extended camping voyages. A small engine to facilitate entering and leaving anchorages and to enable navigation on small rivers was required. Enter the Hitia 24. She is derived from the Wharram Hitia 17 design, dimensioned upwards to 21 ft and with 1 m (3 ½ ft) extra length added. The deck is on top instead of between the beams and thus level with the hull tops and is therefore completely flush. Resulting usable deck space is no less then 16 sqm. Rig is the wonderful Wharram oh-so-easy-to-handle soft wingsail sloop with a roller-reefed jib. A gennaker with "snuffer" for light down wind work comes as standard. The 3hp Yamaha engine is mounted just behind the mast, where it is at it's most efficient and does not snag the sheets. Although the engine is primarily meant for entering and leaving anchorages, the 12-liter remote fuel tank gives you 10 hours running time at 5 kts in flat water. The Hitia 24 is very easily driven. Her long slender hulls enable her to effortlessly reach cruising speeds of 8 – 10 kts. Lightly loaded in day sailing mode she will do 15 kts and more. The boat's draught is just over one foot (35 cm) so few places will be inaccessible. Overnight an igloo tent can be pitched either on deck or on the beach. With two anchors and plenty of rope (come as standard with the boat) she is well equipped for beaching. Prices vary by season, please inquire for more information.
