The Origami Catamaran is a fun decorative origami design and really floats!
Here are my Video Stop Motion instructions on how to fold your very own origami Catamaran.
Complexity: Easy. Time to fold 15 min. 15 steps. Folded from a one Square origami white paper, about 20 cm x 20 cm.

The Paper Catamaran is a fun craft for older grade school children to make for a number of themes. Yes, the Catamarans will really float, but as the paper gets saturated with water, it will sink and be ruined. This can actually start a neat discussion about what made the ship float to begin with and then what made it sink.


This boat is the coolest boat ever, it is quite hard to fold so you need to to have patience but it worth the trouble because the result will be a awesome ship.
