Pooka is a very fast cruising open-bridgedeck catamaran designed by well known multihull designer Dick Newick. She was meticulously constructed by Peter Walsh of Argosy Marine in Westerly, RI. Peter is a graduate of the Landing School of Boatbuilding and Design in Kennebunkport, Maine.
Pooka has had but two owners. Her first owner's family of four cruised her at least six months of each year between Eastern Canada and the Bahamas. The current owners have cruised her seasonally in New England waters.
Pooka reflects her designer's philosophy of simplicity and seaworthiness. This approach is evident throughout the vessel. Her systems are easy to maintain and her accommodation plan is comfortable whether in port or at sea.
