Aluminum Catamaran Frame for Inflatable Paddle Boards.

Convert 2 paddle boards into an electric or sail catamaran..

Also can be used to install electric motor on single kayak, canoe or paddle board. See pictures for more details.

Great for pleasure cruising for 1-2 people or fishing. Heavy-duty set of 2 aluminum frames, designed to join together 2 inflatable SUP Paddle Boards to make catamaran type of vessel. Frames can be break down into smaller pieces for easy storage. Comes with transom on one of tubes, so that electric trolling motor can be installed on it.

Frame section with a transom can be installed in various ways, so that trolling motor can be installed in front, or in rear. In both configurations, location of transom can allow easy access to tiller handle of trolling motor for comfortable operation.

Various types of beach chairs or kayak seats can be installed on both SUPs for comfortable ride and enjoyment. If no D-rings available on a top of SUP paddle board to attach beach chairs, then chairs can be secured directly to frame tubes with tie downs.

This frame can also be used for DIY project of converting 2 inflatable SUPs into sail catamaran. Please note that this is DIY project, and we do not provide detailed instructions. However, having 2 frames joining 2 SUPs or kayaks. it become possible to mount sail pedestal and keel on a front frame, and attach rudder or oar to rear frame, so that to create sail catamaran.

Frames attach to hulls of 2 paddle boards, placed side by side, by running 44" long x 1.5" wide tie down straps under hull of each SUPs, and securing to tie down clamps. Bottom of frames has rubber layer attached to it, so that to reduce slippage. Once frames installed to both SUPs, there might be some play in movements, which does not affect functionality or performance of catamaran going under power over waves. To make frame more rigid, install it while SUP only inflated about 60-80%, pull tie downs firmly, and then finish inflation. Flash with fresh water after use in salt water. Apply grease to thumb bolt to make disassembly easier.

If installing electric trolling motor in front of catamaran, rotate tiller handle 180 degree for comfortable operation. To do that, remove screws holding top housing of trolling motor, rotate it 180 degree and then re-install screw back. If installing trolling motor in rear, do not install fins on paddle boards, to make catamaran more responsive for turns.

catasup padamaran standamaran supCAT

picture of a paddleboard featuring two pontoons and a deck.

June 26, 2022 Shades of green loaded with happy birds surround me on our deck. It's light at 0500ish. My coffee steams a bit. Life is good! As always, a supCAT starts with two pontoons and a deck. It includes a base set of ‘build to order’ features and can also include optional add-ons like:a variety of lengths and widths, several different wood species, ‘pinstripes’, a custom decal, hatches, and ‘one of a kind’ deck designs.

There's something about wood boats that is hard to quantify. For me as a builder, I love the smell when I'm working the wood into shape, the feel of a spokeshave as it moves across a piece of wood, and the look of the wood as it comes alive under epoxy or varnish. As a paddler, the feel of a wood boat as it slips through the water is very satisfying.

Pictures below are from the July 2018 supCAT splash. It handled well and felt great. As the pics show, this fourteen foot model nicely fits two people.

  • length - the supCAT pictured above is 14 feet long and 32 inches wide. 12 foot supCATs are possible, as are even longer (expedition anyone??) supCATs
  • wood - white pine (seen above), but western red cedar, redwood, even reclaimed barn board are options,
  • complementary pinstripe woods, e.g. purpleheart, wenge, bubinga,
  • a simple open deck. Plenty of design options are possible - ranging from hatches to built-in fishing rod holders!

Forward rowing, backward rowing, or SUP, the XCAT Row configuration does them all flawlessly.  

Xcat rowvista®.

With traditional rowing, you are pulling the boat backwards, and your line of sight is opposite of the direction in which you are traveling. With RowVista, you're pulling the boat forward, and your line of sight is forward so you are facing the direction you are headed, much like driving a car or operating a powerboat. You will feel the breeze in your face and you can row at a relaxed pace without fatigue. Moderately fit people can row much farther than they think with RowVista.

If you want to be able to row forward and sail at the same time, choose the RowVista System from the dropdown menu on the left and add an XCAT Sailing Kit from our accessories below.

XCAT RowMotion®

The XCAT RowMotion uses a classic reverse rowing motion—the way that it’s been done since rowing was invented. The stable catamaran design provides a smooth safe ride on the water while an adjustable stop limits movement to the rear so that you can row without using foot straps. This is extremely beneficial if you want to row in flip flops or barefoot in the summer.

The XCAT RowMotion is available with or without oars. Choose the option that best suits your needs from the dropdown menu on the left.

The XCAT is a super stable platform for stand-up paddling. This boat can easily be walked around on and even surfed in waves. This is the perfect boat to SUP with a friend, especially for longer distances in coastal waters.

If you want to use the XCAT Row like a stand-up-paddleboard (SUP) choose the XCAT SUP from the dropdown menu on the left.

Boat Capabilities

Xcat row innovations.

Designed with rowing in mind, the XCAT is built to excel at rowing while providing an unparalleled platform that can withstand coastal conditions and constant powerboat wakes.


Optional Tiller-Fix keeps the rudder off center to countersteer paddling from only one side of the boat.

HDPE hulls are ultra durable and can handle hard groundings or collisions with underwater obstructions.

Self tensioning trampoline material saves you from unnecessary lacing for a faster assembly.

Anodized aluminum frame is corrosion resistant and will keep your boat looking new for years to come.

Extra wide platform is ultra stable. The XCAT can easily tackle big waves and rough waters.

Long and narrow hulls are fast through the water allowing you to reach high speeds with less effort.

Wide catamaran design lets you row in rougher conditions.

Low to the water design keeps you in touch with the water.

Concept2 oarlocks allow you to use our oars or your old C2 oars from college.

Fully adjustable positioning for oarlocks, roller seat and foot stretchers.

RowVista system has swinging oarlock that allows the oars to swing inboard of the boat for coming alongside docks or other boats.

RowVista is designed to allow the same motions as traditional rowing, but the boat moves in the direction you are facing.

Not the right sailboat for you? Let’s find your perfect boat.

XCAT Row Features & Benefits

The world’s first hard-hulled catamaran that can be transported on the roof of your car and assembled in 12 minutes—all without sacrificing quality or performance.

High-Quality Textilene Image

High-Quality Textilene®

This high tech material is used for the trampoline. It is UV resistant, hard wearing, breathable and self tensioning. This material is comfortable enough to sleep on but firm enough to comfortably stand and walk around. It is also durable enough to bring a large dog along without worry of damage.

Motor Mount Image

Motor Mount Included

All XCAT boats include a motor mount attached to the rear crossbar. This mount can handle up to a 3 hp outboard (Red Beard recommends either the EP Carry or Torqeedo 1103CL). If you don’t want/need the mount, you can unbolt the wooden motor mount from the crossbar for a clean aesthetic with reduced windage. Check out the XCAT Extra Crossbar With Outboard Bracket .

Bow Net Storage Image

Bow Net Storage (Optional)

This optional bow net and bowsprit allows you to store gear without cluttering the main trampoline area. With a rowing only XCAT, you will need to purchase the rowing version of the Bow Net as it includes a bowsprit.

Included Bags Image

Bags Included

Every XCAT Row includes two high quality padded storage and transport bags. One holds the trampoline and the other has wheels and holds the crossbars, oars, rudder (optional) and most other accessories. There will even be room left over to hold a sailing package as well.

Oar Blade Feathering Image

Oar Blade Feathering (RowVista)

The RowVista system allows easy feathering by rolling your hands forward. There are hard stops at the feathered and square positions to make rowing easier for newbies and relaxing for advanced rowers.

All Carbon Sculls Image

All Carbon Sculls (RowMotion)

Our all carbon 2 piece oars feature Martinoli grips and an adjustable cuff to accommodate any size rower.

Anodized Aluminum Frame Image

Anodized Aluminum Frame

The high quality anodized aluminum frame resists dings and dents as well as being very resistant to seawater and UV degradation.

Foam Filled Hulls Image

EPP Particle Foam Filled Hulls

This foam provides structural support to the HDPE hull skin material but also makes the XCAT unsinkable.

HDPE Hull Skin Image

HDPE Hull Skin

Think plastic cutting board material, it is weatherproof, impact resistant and dirt repellent. These hulls are easy to clean and can withstand hard groundings on an oyster bed, even though the boat floats in ankle height water.

XCAT Row Technical Specs

sup catamaran kit


Sail it. row it. power it. go ahead, it’s your move..

The XCAT combines versatility, portability and performance in a way that no other boat on the market can. The XCAT Row is perfect for achieving your fitness goals, or use it on your next river or lake rowing adventure. You can maximize the XCAT’s versatility by powering it with an optional outboard motor, or add a sailing kit to XCAT RowVista for the ability to row and sail at the same time.

XCAT Sailing Kit Add-On

If you want the best of both worlds with the ability to row and sail your XCAT Row, this is the accessory for you. The Sailing Kit has everything you need to start harnessing the wind.

  • When combined with an XCAT Row model you can row it or sail it to your favorite fishing spot, or have versatility for your next adventure.
  • Easily switch between rowing and sailing in 60 seconds without any hard work or tools.
  • Easy to sail system allows novice sailors to “learn the ropes” without a large risk of capsizing. If you can’t get back upwind, just drop the sails and row home!
  • Recommended Hiking Seats option allows you to stow your oars behind the seats keeping the trampoline clutter free.

Accessory Kit Includes: Mast, Mainsail, Genoa, Bowsprit, Rudder and all running and standing rigging.

XCAT Sailing Kit Image

ePropulsion Motor Electric Inboard Motor with Mount

The XCAT is a lightweight expertly engineered watercraft, and what better way to power it than a lightweight and expertly engineered electric outboard! This motor configuration was expertly designed for the XCAT. This motor is easily deployed and retracted via uphaul and downhaul control lines and features a bluetooth remote throttle for easy use! This motor is also great for motorsailing out of a narrow creek to help you get out to the big wind and water faster!

  • Ready for use and folded up again in a flash (can even be used to cheat on tacks)
  • almost invisibly integrated due to its slim design (no need to mount on the outboard mount)
  • very light, no negative effects on weight trim when sailing (other outboards leave the starboard side of the boat heavier than port)
  • collision protection (folds away in case of grounding)

Runtime Range at full power: approx. 5 miles - runtime approx. 70 minutes | Range at half power: approx. 12.5 miles - runtime approx. 5 hours

Choosing the right accessories to make the ultimate xcat row.

XCAT Accessory

Roof Rack Accessory Kit

This bundle of accessories is the perfect kit if you plan to transport your XCAT on the roof of your car. Roof rack not included—but it does include the necessary straps, pads and pegs to secure your XCAT.

XCAT Accessory

Bow Mesh / Front Trampoline (Rowing)

This front trampoline is fantastic for keeping the main trampoline clean and clear for rowing! It can’t carry a person, but it can carry about 70 lbs of gear and supplies. This kit includes the trampoline and the bowsprit. If you elect to add a sail kit (which comes with a bowsprit), Red Beard suggests buying the Sailing Equipment Set which includes the bow mesh instead of this accessory.

XCAT Accessory

Center Beam Seat

This seat is a great way to add a padded seat to the center of your XCAT. A good comfortable way to seat a passenger while rowing and keeping their weight center-ship.

XCAT Accessory

Launching Cradles

The Launching Cradles are the easiest to use as a solo sailor and are perfect for launching and retrieving from concrete boat ramps and moving the boat over hard ground like dirt. It struggles a bit in super soft sand.

XCAT Accessory

Launching Cart with Balloon Tires

This upgraded Launching Cart comes with purpose built balloon tires which makes moving your XCAT on soft sand much easier.

XCAT Accessory

Sailing Equipment Set

This bundle of sailing accessories includes: Hiking Seats, Bow Mesh, Tiller-Fix and Hiking Straps. All of these are highly recommended for sailing on the XCAT and the Hiking Seats allow for easier storage of oars when not in use.

XCAT Accessory

If you’ve elected to add the Sail kit to your XCAT Row, then this mast float will be your best friend on that fateful day that you do capsize. This float prevents the boat from turtling and makes righting the boat very quick and easy.

XCAT Accessory

The SUP paddle is fairly self-explanatory and stores perfectly behind the optional hiking seats. Red Beard recommends this plus the Tiller-Fix if you opt for no outboard or rowing system. This paddle is collapsible to a small paddle or a full length SUP paddle.

XCAT Accessory

The tiller-fix is a super simple contraption that essentially holds your rudder off to one side. This can be used to hold your course while sailing or to countersteer a solo SUP paddler.

XCAT Accessory

Standard with the XCAT Row RowMotion or RowVista options, but also can be ordered separately. This is a great bag to carry and store your running rigging in, to keep it from getting tangled in transport.

XCAT Accessory

Dry Bag - HIKO

This waterproof bag easily mounts on rowing boards or the XCAT bow net. Includes additional shoulder belts for use as a backpack. Size is 18" x 12" x 6".

XCAT Accessory

Stainless Steel Anchor

This is a beautiful stainless steel folding anchor that will give you some peace of mind when it comes to docking your XCAT. Includes a length of line appropriate for anchoring in waist deep water.

XCAT Accessory

These fenders are cleverly upcycled, spending their former life as seats. These fenders will help protect your XCAT from damage when rubbing against anything such as another boat or a pier. This is just for one fender, so if you think you need more, be sure to add more in your cart.

supCAT cataSUP padamaran standamaran

I've always liked the look of catamarans and the quiet of canoes and kayaks. So several years back (maybe more), I put one foot in front of the other and carved out some prototype supCATs, each one better than the last. Until finally I had one that was 'good enough'. Four ounce fiberglass went on and soon enough that supCAT got wet. It was a delight! Here are some pics in the wild, on a two day float down the Wisconsin River over 2019 Labor Day weekend. Still have this board. Pure pleasure.

What to call it? supCAT is my favorite, but cataSUP and standamaran work too. padacat? Two pontoons and a deck. Call it what you will, but it floats, it paddles and it is a joy out on the water! There's more at supCAT boards website still here! - and it's June 24, 2022

Lush colors that cut through the water. A spacious deck that can easily hold more than one paddler, or even a paddler and a sitter. Tie downs and hatches allow for more options.

cataSUP options

  • I am happy to build you your own custom craft. There are several different options, perfect for a few conversations via email or phone calls to plan out.
  • Much like the idea behind the wavetrainSUP paddle kits, a supCAT kit gives a DIYer the materials to indulge their vision and not have to worry about all the table saw-based ripping and cutting. Kits contain all the precut wood and materials needed to make a cataSUP.
  • For those with the tools and the inclination, I am also developing a set of plans such that you can take the rough lumber and rip it into the materials you need to build your own catamaran paddleboard.
  • Finally, I am working through a new build in front of a video camera. The net result of this will be a video tutorial laying out everything a DIY'er needs to go from concept through completion of their own cataSUP.

Live watersports catamaran sup.

It’s not a completely new design, but LIVE Watersports bring the catamaran SUP to the touring, adventuring, fishing and expedition side of SUP. What do you think of the design?

The dual hull design brings a lot of advantages compared to the traditional SUP. More deck space increases stability, allows for more capacity (up to 700lbs on some boards!) and provides versatility from SUP fishing, touring, expeditions or windsurfing. There is less surface area in the water which also enhances speed.

What do you think of the catamaran design? Have you tried one before? We would love to hear your comments below.

Bad idea! Just what I wanted, a sup that will get tangled in any debris in the water by gathering it in front of me caught between the two front hulls. Better idea is for a single front hull that splits to a dual hull starting about 2 feet back of the nose.

Now thats an idea… cool

The 18 Best Fishing Paddleboards | Awesome SUPs for Angling

  • by Chris Klenner
  • September 3, 2020 September 21, 2021

Grouper on the SUP

Fishing SUPs (aka fishing paddleboards) have been steadily growing in popularity over the last decade. SUP fishing readily embraces a light gear philosophy – making it one of the best grab and go options out there. A cooler, rod, and some light tackle are all you really need, and can fit, for a great day paddling on the water.

Most sups are fishable; but fishing paddleboards, or rather SUPS built specifically for fishing, have a few key features that add some critical functionality. Our list below, a subset derived from our master sup database, shows the current market for fishing paddleboards. A deep dive on the most expensive and most affordable boards will give you a better idea of what your dollar buys. And finally we’ve put together a few tips to consider to help you find your best next board.

Most Expensive Fishing Paddleboard

Live 2 fish l4 expedition.

sup catamaran kit

The Live Watersports family features two high-end fishing paddleboards: the L2 and L4. Both feature catamaran style fiberglass hulls with premium gel coating that provides a glossy and durable finish. The L4 Expedition is the larger model and boasts some impressive specs. 14′ long with 8 square feet of deck space and a 700 lb capacity puts the L4 Expedition at the top of the pack for not just fishing paddleboards, but almost all paddleboards. At 34″ wide the L4 can still be easily paddled and is surprisingly fast thanks to the low wetted surface area.

When it comes to angling the L4 doesn’t skimp out; this rig is ready to take on all sizes of fish. Ten different gear tracks adorn the perimeter to provide anchor points for gear, rod holders, and other accessories. The recessed stern shape naturally lends itself to motor placement. With the Live Watersports motor mount you can easily throw on a low thrust trolling motor for longer distance voyages. The stability on this SUP is nearly unparalleled thanks to its twin hull design. If you take a dip fighting a redfish on this board well, that’s on you.

The L4 Expedition weighs in at 65 lbs, which is hefty for a SUP, but isn’t even a tenth of its total capacity. This is an awesome option for serious fishermen looking for exercise. And it’s perfect for those who want to bring along some extra gear, or a companion. This fishing paddleboard can easily support two people without crowding them; which means you’ll have no excuse not to bring your spouse or kid. The L4 Expedition costs $2,699 and is made in the USA in Clearwater, Florida.

Most Affordable Fishing Paddleboard

Kaku kayaks kahuna.

sup catamaran kit

The Kaku Krew down in Tarpon Springs Florida are known for producing some wildly innovative paddlecraft. Largely geared towards flats and inshore fishing Kaku’s built a respectable lineup of watercraft that often blurs the lines between kayak and paddleboard. The Kaku Kahuna borders hybrid territory and this design offers some great advantages over water.

The Kahuna measures in at 12′ long with a 34″ beam and is built using a rotomolded HDPE process comparable to most kayak makers. Integral skeg fins and board-length chines on the bottom offer stability and superior tracking. Up front a small hatch provides dry storage and hull access, while the stern features a power-pole insert which can also accommodate after market motor mounts. Gear track on each side and an EVA foam mat with some gnarly graphics complete the package.

All of these features add up to an extremely approachable fishing paddleboard at a great price (drops to $650 on sale fairly often). There are some downsides to consider though: this board is heavy; lugging 70lbs a couple hundred feet will have you shopping for a cart in no time. The weight capacity on this is also fairly low at just 300 lbs. Approaching that limit causes the board to sit low in the water which means wet feet. If you’re above 200 lbs you should definitely think twice.

All in all though this is an awesome board for lighter paddlers who want a stable and durable fishing paddleboard. If you ever get tired standing you can add on a Larry Chair to convert the Kahuna into a hybrid kayak/sup. Give the Kahuna some thought if you’re looking to break into paddleboard fishing for less.

Our Pick For The Best Value Fishing Paddleboard

Sea eagle fishsup 126.

Tricked out FS126

Sea Eagle has a long-standing reputation of delivering premium inflatables at approachable price; and the FS126 is no different. This inflatable fishing paddleboard measures 12’6″ long with a beam of 38″ and sports Sea Eagle’s distinctive hunter green color scheme. The 6″ thick FS126 inflates to 15 PSI thanks to a drop stitched core to provide an extremely rigid ride. Underneath 3 removable skeg fins assist in tracking; while up top a camo EVA foam deck pad provides traction for both paddling and reeling in some whoppers.

One of the hallmarks of an awesome fishing paddleboard is its versatility; and the FS126 delivers in spades. This fishing SUP can be rigged with just a pole and paddle. Or you can add a swivel seat, trolling motor, and rod holders for more adventurous outings. 14 D rings running along the port and starboard edges offer tie down points for paddle and rod leashes. And bungee up front is handy for stowing tackle boxes or a dry bag. We’re also big fans of the built in measuring stick and the paddle pocket up front.

sup catamaran kit

There are a few different trim levels for the FS126, but all of them come with a backpack (for storage), pump, repair kit, paddle, and soft bow box. The base package runs at $899 and Sea Eagle regularly runs free shipping promotions. At this price the Fishing SUP 126 is an incredible deal; you won’t find a lot of comparable packages anywhere near the same level of quality. Higher trim packages add in accessories like seats and motor mounts, which you can purchase separately, but are more attractively priced with the board. If you’re itching to get into SUP angling, and on a budget, then definitely consider running the Sea Eagle.

Smooth, Silent, and Stylish: The Dragonfly

sup catamaran kit

The Dragonfly 13’6″ is not your typical fishing paddleboard. This paddleboard was designed from the ground up to be smooth, quiet, and dry. The sharp entry bow breaks and flat side boards enable the 13’6″ to silently coast through the water; no board-slap to spook the fish. The raised lip around the cockpit, along with a slight rocker and backward tilt, provide splash over a clear path back to the sea. Paddling the Dragonfly 13’6″ starts dry and ends dry in all but the roughest waters.

Built using composite fabric and resin Dragonfly’s SUPs are durable but light. At just 45 lbs the 13’6″ model can support up to 420 lbs which is more than enough for sturdy passengers and big payloads. The hollow core provides plenty of buoyancy as well as convenient workspace for running wires if you decide to motorize.

sup catamaran kit

These boards are prized and sought after because of their reputation as some of the best made fishing paddleboards out there. Dragonfly’s are available around the world, but if you’re on the east coast it’s worth a trip down to Vero Beach to check them out. If you’re gearing for a board your friends will be jealous of then you’d be hard pressed to find one smoother than Dragonfly.

What to Look For in A Fishing Paddleboard

First and foremost to paddleboard fishing is a stable platform for throwing a line out. Stability in paddleboards can be accomplished a few different ways; chines, catamarans, or most commonly – width. Extra wide boards offer greater surface area to balance a load and resist against shifting forces. All around and even yoga type SUPS typically offer better stability and are good choices if you’re in a pinch. Wide boards simply aren’t as fast; but that’s OK – you’re fishing.

Most SUP anglers prefer quiet boards for the simple reason that noise spooks fish. And when you’re sightcasting and a fish goes, it’s gone. Board rocker and bow shape have a profound effect on the noise level of a board. Flared up bows are great for coasting over waves and keeping balance. But they also have a tendency to accentuate the dreaded Hull-Slap. In mild to moderate winds small waves will slap against the underside of your board producing vibrations which will send your prey swimming. Boards with steep entry bows and v shaped hulls will help reduce or outright eliminate hull slap.

Room To Grow

As you develop as a paddleboard fisherman you’ll want to adapt your setup. A board that provides a flexible platform to accommodate different setups is critical for long term satisfaction. The inclusion of gear track, D-rings, bungee, and scotty mounts on a board gives you the ease to switch up your config easily. While modifying a SUP is possible it’s also a bit more delicate than with a kayak; water that seeps into your foam core isn’t getting out easily. Boards with baked in accessory points are easier to adapt and grow with.

Overview on the Best Fishing Paddleboards

SUP at Sunset

We expect that Fishing SUP’s will continue to grow in popularity as more and more people begin to embrace a lighter and faster fishing philosophy. And with that the limited number of dedicated fishing paddleboard models should blossom with more innovative and exciting designs. We’re personally holding out for a SUP with integrated motor well – a board that incorporates a Bixpy and integrated electronics would be pretty schwifty. Let us know your favorite paddleboard fishing rig and tight lines!

SUP / Catamaran Hybrid

What do you get when you cross a SUP with a catamaran? This video showcases the result. The inventors call it a "Standamaran". Watch this unique contraption racing down the Sacramento river in the 100 mile long California 100 race in June 2016. The board is a custom prototype Blue Planet board with two 18' long hulls.

FastCat12™ Catamaran Reviews

I did a ton of research before I pulled the trigger on this boat and it paid off. My first trip was in San Diego in mission bay and the boat was perfect. My self and father-in-law fished the bay for a week with no issues and were blown away how stable the boat was and received a ton of compliments. The 5hp mercury outboard compliments the boat.

I love my Seaeagle 12 Fast Cat. Use it almost everyday in Florida. Customer service is great. Had a valve leak and they sent me a box and had it back in a couple of weeks with shipping time. Just the right size if I need to deflate it and store it. Great ride and just a solid built boat.

Boat is really great. I got all the extras with electric pump, seats, bimini etc. Sets up pretty quick and easy. I went with an electric 83lbs thrust motor and batteries ( 24 volt). I can run for hours! Great to take on vacation with us. We have an RV and like to bring the golf cart and the boat once deflated takes up no room at all.

The unit fits all of our needs. It is very stable with two passengers. Plenty of room to carry a cooler. The sun shade does act like a sail in the wind but you just make the best of it. The electric motor allows one to do some fishing and not have to stay in one spot for any time. Overall, good quality, came in a timely manner and was fairly easy to assemble. It definitely takes two people to move around when inflated.

Catamaran Stand Up Paddle Board (SUP)


Introduction: Catamaran Stand Up Paddle Board (SUP)

Catamaran Stand Up Paddle Board (SUP)

This is a fiber glass catamaran stand up paddle board or simply SUP. SUP boards are more related to a boat like construction rather than a surfboard. The sport of stand up paddle boarding came about in the era of surfing. It is a much larger board used along with a paddle in a standing fashion, to explore, race or surf. The shape and weight will be more determining of what the board is suitable for. This particular model I designed for a fast, long distance, touring style. My board is 12'6" long by 28" wide and weighs around 30-32lbs. The catamaran shape is great for a more stable board. I have not surfed with it as of yet and it is not suitable for a race that has many turns due to the lack of surface area in the rear (the method used to turn a sup is shifting the weight to the rear, raising the nose). Hope you enjoy! Btw:  Eventually I would like to create these completely hollow. If you like what you see, I would appreciate any help. Below is a link on how you can help. Thank You!!!

Step 1: Foam


Buy Blue insulation foam. Panels are 4x8 feet and about $14. You will need 3-4.

Step 2: Cut Foam

Cut Foam

Once you have traced a design you like, sketch it on the foam. Measure twice cut once!!

Step 3: Place Pieces Together

Place Pieces Together

Before any glue is used, place the pieces together to make sure they fit correctly.

Step 4: Glue


I used water resistant glue since it will be glassed later anyway.

Step 5: Cut Upper and Bottom Parts

Cut Upper and Bottom Parts

Once the basic shape is glued and pieced together you will need to make the top and bottom of the pontoons.

Step 6: Glue


Once it is fitted and glued. Begin shaping. I used 150 grit sand paper.

Step 7: Second Pontoon

Second Pontoon

Repeat the steps for the second pontoon.

Step 8: Middle Piece

Middle Piece

Join the two pontoons.

Step 9: Deck


Add a deck to stand on.

Step 10: Shape


Shape using sandpaper. Take your time.

Step 11: Get Rid of 90 Deg Corners

Get Rid of 90 Deg Corners

I added a rounded edge underneath to ease with glassing.

Step 12: Glassing


Add fiber glass. Use two part epoxy.

Step 13: Add Fin Boxes

Add Fin Boxes

After adding 2-3 layers of fiber glass prepare fin boxes. Research angles for the size you are building. Also add any leash holds or net holds at this time.

Step 14: Paint


Design a color scheme and begin painting base color first.

Step 15: Design


Continue with your design scheme. I chose a post apocalyptic look.

Step 16: Glass/epoxy


You can finalize with a thin 4oz fiber glass to seal the images or glass with epoxy alone. Add the epoxy with a brush and add 3 layers total. Let the epoxy sit for 3 hours exactly before its cured to add the next layer.

Step 17: Help Support Us!!

  • Duflex Kit Construction in 9 Steps


Duflex Kit Construction Step.1

Step 1. Kit Design

Work with us to finalise the details of the design you have chosen including any design options or additional modules to be included in the kit.

We will determine the laminates, the number of panels required for each laminate, create the cutting files and prepare a quote for the kit if it is not already priced.

Once the design details and pricing are confirmed you are ready to place your order.

Duflex kit construction Kit image-01

Step 2. Unpacking

2. The kit arrives at your workshop door, usually by container, as a stack of 1.2m x 2.4m routed composite panels ready to be joined. The shipment will normally include additional reinforcements, resins, and ancilary products as specified.

Unpack the shipment and stack the panels out of the way of the space where the panels will be joined.

If you have purchased a joined kit many of the panels will already be joined up to the length that can be shipped in a container (12m).

Duflex Kit Construction Step 2 image-02

Step 3 Joining the Panels

Set up the work space where the panels are to be joined.

The panels have a scarf join called a Z join that facilitate the join without needing tapes.

The joining can be done with a heated Z press that cures the epoxy join quickly. Alternatively they can be joined with clamping pressure.

If the panel are are being joined with the Z press you will need an elevated work bench the full length of the longest panels you are using. (image below).

If you are joining them with a clamping technique the space can be on the factory floor.

A nesting booklet is provided with the kit to show how the panels are joined (right)

Duflex kit construction Step 3 image-01

Joining the panels with  clamping pressure

Step 4 Stacking Joined Panels

Once the joins are cured the panels are stacked to one side until they are needed for the job. The inividual parts should not be cut free of the panels until they are required.

Bulkhead and floor panels will be needed before the hull sides and cabin top so they should be left to the front of the stack wherever possible.

Diuflex Kit Construction Header image step 5.

Step 5. Separating the Parts

When assembly is ready to begin the individual parts are separated from the panels by cutting the joining tabs. It is likely you will be building onto moulded hull bottoms that have been built from strip planking or another method of building moulded components. The process for building moulded components is described in another article.

Duflex kit Construction Step 5 Image-01


As the joined panels are assembled onto the job you will need to apply glass tapes to the joins as specified in your plans.

Panels can be surfaced and coated inside and out with high build while they are on the workshop floor to minimise fairing time once they are assembled to the boat. The paint on the panels shown here has been kept back from the edges to provide a good bond for the tapes.

Duflex Kit Construction Assembly image-01

Smaller items such as steps, seats and dagger cases are nested into the kit and for the more complex parts diagrams are provided to assist with the assembly process.

Duflex Kit Construction Header Image Step 7

Step 7. Interior

Interior kits can be ordered with the primary kit, or they can be ordered later when final decisions have been made about the interior arrangement.

A compromise solution is to order the interior as a set of plain planels that can be cut to shape on site after finalising the layout.

Duflex Kit Construction Step 7 Image 2

Step 8 Fairing, Painting, Hardware Installation

8. The DuFLEX construction process goes a long way to minising the amount of fairing that has to be done, but inevitably any boat that has not come out of a female mould will require some level of fairing and surface preparation prior to painting. 

The fillers and resin systems required for the fairing work are normally supplied as part of the kit.

Hardware installation is the same as for any other form of construction using high density core inserts or consolidated laminate in way of fittings.
