    Hi there,

    I'm writing from Germany and just bought a very unique boat built by AMF Alcort Division. It is a kind of Catamaran or Proa called Hillu, so no "fish name". I couldn't find any info about this boat in the web, it's like this boat does not really exist. Please find some pictures attached. I hope somebody can help me out, I'm happy for any hint where to get info about it.

    Thanks in advance for your help

    It's a Proa. Catamarans have two identical hulls.

    There are "Atlantic" and "Pacific" Proas: it depends on which hull is kept to leeward. (I've forgotten which is which). :eek:

    This one's "Crossbow", a very fast British racing Proa of the 70s :eek: :
