|Large scale Catamaran Hull
A scale cat modeled from the original 3D CAD data supplied by full-scale manufacturer Mystic Powerboats & Design. MHZ holds the exclusive license to produce the C5000 cat as a model. The C5000 has inspirational roots in the famous Tencara catamaran originally designed by Michael Peters. The Tencara cat is offered by MHZusa as our CT03. Mystic and Callan Marine cooperated in a gasturbine refit of a 55 ft Tencara cat. This Tencara cat was the first offshore catamaran to exceed 200 mph. After a serious flip at Key West' world championships in 2004, Dave Callan commisioned with Mystic a new 50 ft cat inspired by the Tencara boat. Extensive finite element calculations were done to ensure the required strength for extreme conditions. The Callan 50 has topped the 210 mph mark since. In 2005, the Callan 50 was renamed Mystic C5000. With a recent 1st place overall at the 2008 Key West SBI/APBA World Championships by JBS racing, the C5000 is building it's legacy fast.
While the 2008 World championship full-scale boat is outfitted with twin TM1800 Extreme Turbines, ours will take two SPM-5 Jetcat gasturbines. Alternatively, a Zenoah G260PUM, CY26, or RCMK Evo 254 Normal Rotating and Counter Rotating engines in each sponson will provide adequate power. As with the full-size examples, optional airscoops on the deck will provide the extra space to hide the sparkplug. Using a twin inline engine in each sponson will also fit but will not raise the power-to-weight ratio significantly. Of course, twin electro-setups (Lehner 2080 or even the 3080) with 2 x 30-40 cells or the newer 12s to 14s LiPos have been used successfully with the C5000. Using two our custom Trimax C5000 drives, patterned after the original BPM drives allows trimming the thrust with drop-dead scale looks. Our replica of the original rudder, further enhances the scale looks of our C5000. The three-piece hull has been joined "wet-in-wet" from the factory for optimal strength.
The hull is hand-laid epoxy glass, incomparable to weak ABS or heavier and less strong polyester fiberglass. A separate handlaid and gel-coated hatch overlay from which a window frame can be cut is included in addition to a poly carbonate window insert.
