Fantastic reaction to the RS CAT16

RS CAT16 in action Martin Wadhams
The RS CAT16 was launched in September and is already the winner of two prestigious sailing industry awards in the USA. Sailing World magazine has voted the RS CAT16 it’s 'Dinghy of the Year' and Sail magazine named the boat as 'Small Multihull of the Year'.

These awards reflect the fantastic reaction from everyone who has seen and sailed the CAT16, including professional boat testers and experienced sailboat fleet operators, in Europe as well as North America. Initial impressions have been great, with the RS CAT16’s unique new assembly technology and game-changing design features. Once afloat the usual comments are that the boat feels much stiffer than expected of a rotomoulded catamaran and performs beautifully – quick, responsive and manoeuvrable. It simply does all that you want from a boat of this type...and more.

Constructed from RS Comptec PE3 rotomoulded construction system, using the highest quality polyethylene materials, the RS CAT16 will be highly durable making it particularly suited to training and beach centre use. The easy and sparkling handling also makes the boat ideal for recreational sailors and on the pathway to high performance catamaran racing.

Rig options include mainsail and jib only, a gennaker and single or twin trapezes. So whatever your aspirations, the RS CAT16 can be specified to match.

The RS CAT16 is the first multihull in the RS Sailing range and is available around the world via the RS Dealer network. You can find full details of the boat at RS Sailing and locate your nearest dealer on the website’s World Dealer Finder.

You can also see the RS CAT16 on the RS Sailing stands at the London and Dusseldorf Boat Shows in January.
