Manufacturer: Falcon Marine LLC
Designed by Phill Brander and Ian Marcovitch, the F16 Blade was developed specifically to fit the F16 rules. The F16 concept was developed to be extremely fast, light weight, gennaker rigged boat that is not only competitive with much larger designs, but fun and easy to sail. The Blade takes this concept a few steps further by utilizing advantages in modern hull shape technology and adapting a few other of the designers’ own innovations to truly optimize a lightweight 5 meter (16′-4″) platform.
