Pedigree Cats, Inc.
Bloomfield 75 Sail
We will use this cat as a basic plan and modify it to give us what we want in looks and performance. The designer has agreed to work with our concept artist, and PCI will work with all the structural needs of the designer as well as the weight and balance required to make this cat perform. Her planned empty weight will be 40,000 lbs and fully loaded about 77,000 lbs. This won't be the fastest rig out there, but she will have good performance and will not race her, unless you try to pass us. She will be painted in silvers, darker on the side lower areas and lighter on the top side. The windows will all be glass, solar reflective bronze, dual pane insulated while cooled by chilled water and heated by hot water. A 1800 gpd water maker, an 11.5 and 13 kw diesel gen. sets are also on board.
Planned cruise speed will be 15 mph, using twin 315HP Yanmar diesel engines pushing 3-blade full fethering props from PYI. The rudders will have the lower section made to break away before any real damage would be transferred to the rest of the steering system.
Since this to be a motorsailer, full feathering props are a must. The sails will all be roller furling, the main has not had the furling chosen yet nor the head sails, but the main winch will be self tailing and electric.

These floor plans above will give you and idea of some of the ways this cats interior could accommodate, ours will be a bit different to work for us and our life style. A large kitchen is planned, taking up about 25% of the main salon with seating at the bar around the cooking area. There will be 6 staterooms (2 crew qtrs) and 7 heads, 3 bars Mostly drawers and appliance garages very handy for the things used almost daily, but you want out of sight. This is another reason to pick a designer that is not only reputable in multihulls, but will work with you on what you would like. We have had some very talented concept artists, out there. This take a bit of time, several sketches with input from us, tweaking the response of what looks great and things that may need to be changed a bit. The final perspective, in color, in the water will be something to see.
She will have at least one Lewmar bow
thruster 14.7 hp with over 500 lbs of thrust. The engine controls will be
electric, one up top at the helm and one on each side on the aft deck also with bow
thruster toggles. This allows one or two people to dock her, plus
a lot of safety when approaching a refueling dock that is crowded and
the wind is
blowing a bit. We have also went down between marina slips with
full control comfortably (other cats) This cat will have a
minimum range of 1,000 miles at about 15 mph cruise speed, tank age accordingly, slowed to 10
or 12 mph or so, 3,000 miles and more. Some times you just want
to pass the fuel station that charge an arm and leg for fuel, can't
blame him, he just waited
6 month delivery to his little island and really doesn't want to part
it now that he has it.
We will have a keel shown here, a ramp on the each hull to allow loading of Waverunners and 15' shore boat into the hulls aft. We have found that some times we have had need to launch fast and maybe while underway. Our planned system is easy and will allow to motor up and while in gear, go forward, hook on the strap and use the hand control to activate the electric windlass to pull her up into the hulls as the boarding steps are raised. The shore boat is a 15' center console. Two million candle power remote control spot lights up front, ELT, VHR, GPS, sounder and lots of goodies to have fun all day.

Love the wide hulls here and inside and the ease of getting into these large engine and machinery rooms. No bed boxes shown here under the bridge deck, a 45 deg. angle up for early entry steps down into the hull.
Even though we have be planning this cat for years, we are just now spending time really putting to paper what we want and where inside. We are not die hard sailors, racers or going around the world non-stop. We don't plan storm sailing, but have been known to get caught in them so we have a Parachute Sea Anchor on board.
This cat may not please everyone in the way she'll look inside and out (won't be white with a blue boot stripe either) but it will be what we want and what we have been building for 41 years, clients get exactly what they want, inside and out.
Check back once in a while and you start seeing what the artist is working up for the exterior looks, now the 86' on our site.
