Hull
  • Constructed from hi-tech composite (polyester and fiberglass) foam sandwich creating an ultra-lightweight hull, that is more durable and easier to maintain and repair
  • Self-draining cockpit with rear dam is carefully designed to hold water after a capsize to stabilize the very light hull before it drains out
  • Non-skid on the wings for grip while trapezing
  • Sand blasted deck for greater grip while tacking
  • Aluminum safety grab (and foot) rails for skipper

Control Lines
  • Gnav system to open up cockpit and better control leech tension
