The Atlantic City 24' Catboat is a recreation of the most famous east coast cruising catboat design, easy to sail with just one sail. She has a wide beam for stability and accommodations usually found only on 30'- 35' boats. You never have to leave the safety and comfort of the cockpit to raise or lower the sail. The cockpit alone can accommodate 10 people with easy control by a steering wheel.
This is a great cruiser even without the sail up. The 27 HP Westerbeke 3 cylinder diesel engine consumes very little fuel with a 3 blade bronze prop at speeds of 6-7 mph. The engine is monitored by alarmed meters for tachometer, water temperature, volts, oil and hours. Westerbeke engines are also made for the US Navy from their factory in the US.
Nantucket is home ported out of the water on a lift on Dauphin Island off the Alabama Gulf Coast. More pictures, detailed boat and engine information are available.
