Assembling a catamaran, installing electricity, setting up a mast, equipping it with ropes and other necessary equipment is a very expensive thing. It’s a complicated job, especially if you’ve never done it before.
In the beginning of July catamaran was brought to Yachting center in Izola. It took us 6 weeks to build the catamaran, to bring 12V electricity on it, to place the instruments and do some other necessary things.
Again, several old friends and new ones that I have met in Izola helped us a great deal.

Join the author on their nautical quest, and discover the joy of building and sailing your own boat.
The catamaran was built so quickly and finished thanks to sponsors:
In the Yachting center, we received a warm welcome. Nowhere else on the Slovenian coast there is such a working oasis. Here you can do just about anything and there are no visitors at all. It took us 3 weeks to put the catamaran together and make it ready for the first sailing. It was put together quickly and afterwards the work on small things has started: a 12V electricity needed to be set, 55 W solar panel enables enough electricity. So as far the electricity goes, the catamaran is completely self-sufficient.
