More than half of all new Paper Tiger Catamarans are home-built by amateur builders. Basic woodworking skills and tools, enthusiasm and the willingness to ask questions are pretty much all you need to be able to build a boat.
One of the many great aspects of the Paper Tiger Catamaran class is the willingness to share information, so you don't have to feel like you are on your own when building a boat, even if you are thousands of miles from the nearest Paper Tiger!
We have an extensive network of people who are only an e-mail or a phone call away! Many of our members have built Paper Tigers, some have built several. Plus we have numerous articles available about how to build a boat, as well as hundreds of photos of the process from start to finish. We can also provide detailed infomation on how to fit out your boat to ensure that it is competitive with other boats. And we have many articles on how to sail the boat as fast as possible. And if you still have questions, we can put you in touch with any number of Paper Tiger sailors to find you answers!
