The Skoota 28 powercat has proven to be a great coastal liveaboard cruiser for a couple. We cruised ours over 6000 miles from the deep water fjords of British Columbia to the shallows of the Gulf of Mexico and the Bahamas. 

 And, because if its size, plus the fact that it was demountable, we were able to build it in a shed with a 10ft wide door and then,  after a few years cruising in British Columbia, transport it from Seattle to Corpus Christi in Texas on a normal flat bed trailer pulled by a pickup truck. No escort needed, just a wide load certificate.

 However, as always, there were compromises. the first being that it was definitely a "drinks for 6, meals for 4, sleeps 2" boat. So it isn't a suitable boat for a cruising family. The Skoota 32 and 36 are clearly ideal for that. But, apart from being much bigger, both are one piece boats which adds to the building and storage/transport complications.

 So the new Aegean 30 design is a development of the Skoota 28. Still demountable, still trailable (once demounted), but  now with standing headroom and single berth accommodation in each hull. 

The overall beam has been increased to near sailing catamaran width. So wave interference is less of an issue and so the hulls can be symmetric, which gives more interior and better load carrying. 

 The central cabin and cockpit are essentially the same as on the Skoota 28, but with extra freeboard the bridgedeck clearance can also be increased.

As on Skoota, outboard engines are used, so engine noise and smell is out of the accommodation and no rudders are needed (which always complicates the transom area). Furthermore, outboards make drying out on a sandy beach safe and  easy.  Twin 40-60HP give a top speed  of 16-20 knots depending on engines chosen while cruising at 10-12 knots.

 Plans are available for building in plywood. The first set has been sold to Greece, hence the name.
