Single trapeze racing beach cat, 16′ long, easy to build.
The QUATTRO 16 is a twin trapeze high performance racing cat that has proven faster than the Hobie 16 or Dart 18. The hulls are rounded V built using the “stitch and glue” plywood technique which results in stiff, light-weight hulls (two adults can carry a fully rigged Quattro up the beach).
Small skegs help tacking and pointing and protect the hull bottoms when beaching. A forward beam is used to stiffen the forestay. “A very easy to build, fast and successful racing catamaran” Boats and Yachting Magazine.
