The most professional of all HAPPY CATs, is now even more powerful! This version with a high-tech mast made of 100% carbon, weighs 6 kg less and offers attractive advantages: Sensationally light, only 21 kg per bag. Even more stable sailing on one hull through later tipping point. Very easy lifting after capsizing. Even better mainsail profile due to lower bending curve.
WARNING: This catamaran makes sails addictive!
Carbon mast: Light as a feather!
The HURRICANE is now available with a professional carbon mast. An absolute recommendation for sailors who set high priority to best sailing performance as well as sailors who often sail on big inland waters and at sea. The mast section is drop shaped and equipped with a track for the main sail bolt rope. Made of 100% carbon fiber for highest stability at lowest weight.
Benefits of Carbon Mast
Beside the futuristic appearance more differences exist between the standard aluminium mast and the carbon mast version:
- Mast 6 kg less weight
- Easier to carry: Max. weight only 21 kg instead of 29 kg per bag
- A tailor made cushioned carrying bag is included in the carbon mast version.
- “Smoother sailing behavior”: Sailing on one hull is more stable, the tipping point occurs later.
- It is more easy to right catamaran after capsize because of lower mast weight and certain mast buoyancy.
