Designer: Hans Geissler
Manufacturer: G-Cat Mulitihulls, LLC
The G-cat line of beach catamarans is well known to the older generation of cat sailors among us. These boat have always been boardless, but they were considered very fast just the same. During the last decade the G-cat line moved out of view but the company is planning a full come-back ! And the new F16 model is the first to arrive at the market place.
The stirdy boardless design is especially attractive to recreational sailors who seek high performance combined with practical family use. The hull shape is unique in the way that it has alot of rocker and reaches deep in the water to give the boat good upwind performance. With this setup the boat is expected to do well in competitive F16 class racing.
