Kirra is a high performance offshore cruising/racing catamaran. She was designed by Ashby & Morelli Yacht Design and professionally built in WEST System by Concept Marine in California. She was one of four Concept 41s built. Her owner reports that "Kirra" cruises comfortably at 14-15 knots and has been sail at 22.5 knots.
The Concept 41 is a pod cabin design with the pod housing 2 x double berths, a chart table and a compact galley. The hulls contain 4 x single berths and a head. She has a fractional sloop rig and twin outboard auxiliary power. She is equipped with dagger boards and a kick-up rudder system which permits beaching.

Kirra is fully demountable, which will allow over the road transport to her new owners location.
If you are looking for a very fast catamaran with compact cruising accommodation and the strength to withstand offshore conditions, this could be the boat for you.

Design and Construction
The design and engineering analysis for the Concept 41 still resides at Morelli and Melvin in Newport Beach, CA. Gino Morelli has indicated that the boat could be USCG certified for charter if desired as she was built in the USA and the hull scantlings are adequate. She has space for about 35 people on her decks and trampoline.

The Concept 41 is a hybrid catamaran. Her structure consists of the two hulls, 2 x crossbeams, 1 x forebeam and a central pod cabin. There are separate entrances to each hull and to the central pod. She has a large trampoline forward. Kirra is fully demountable, which allows overland transport on a flatbed truck.
Kirra has high bridgedeck clearance, a large net forward and relatively low windage. The bows are high Pacific style and are designed for surfing in large waves without burying.

She has 2 x 1998 Morelli designed balsa core, carbon fiber reinforced fully retractable daggerboards and 2 x underhung rudders with a pivoting kick up system that allows the boat to be beached. The rudders automatically kick up upon striking an obstruction.

Hulls are constructed of cold molded in the WEST System using 5 x 1/10 layers of fir and WEST System epoxy resin. The exterior is fiberglass covered and painted.
