This cat-rigged sailing yacht was designed emphasizing simplicity and ease of handling. Obviously, this will appeal to a broader range of sailors than just beginners. This is an ideal single hander able to get underway in less than 5 minutes.
The hull form features good form stability and a high ballast to displacement ratio for stiffness. It offers enough power to avoid relying on crew weight to get to weather.
The rig is unstayed with a wishbone boom. No vang or traveller is needed with this rig. The only lines you will have will be a 2:1 mainsheet, halyard, reef line, topping lift and choker.
