This beautiful high-performance catamaran is available for sale to a Club or individual. It was ordered and delivered direct from the factory to me.
It is the top-spec XL model which comes with Main, Jib, Assymetric Gennaker (stores in launch chute) and twin trapezes. It can be sailed in any spec from single sail, single-handed for beginners, or fully-loaded for high performance.
The roto-moulded hulls are beautifully finished to RS's usual high standards, and feature wave-piercing Dreadnought bows, and a new design of bull cross-beams that ensure the whole structure stays tight and performs well.
Aerofoil-type rotating mast with dedicated mast float at the head.
Very high performance - as the video shows - but can be sailed with main only, main & jib, main, jib & gennaker, single-handed or with two crew on trapezes. All-out fun guaranteed!
Comes on its own custom-built trailer complete with lockable gear box, which also houses the launch trolley. Can be easily launched off the beach.
The boat is in absolutely mint condition and has been stored indoors in dry conditions. Selling because plans for a local boat park did not come to fruition and I have been left with nowhere to stow the boat rigged, so it has had almost no use (other than a couple of test sails). The trampoline cover is still unopened in its factory wrapping.
Thus it is available at a huge discount compared with buying the boat from new - almost half retail price.
Can deliver to any of the main ports for collection in the U.K, for example Liverpool Birkenhead.
