The A-Cat is one of the fastest single-handed catamarans in the world.Carbon fiber hulls and mast, in the sail most modern fibers. The A-Cat is a design class and only a few parameters such as maximum length, width and sail area (with mast) are given. Designers from all over the world have been attracted by this freedom and many have tried to build the fastest A-Cat. Many innovations from other catamarans find their origin in the A-Cat. The class is top modern and faster than ever before. Developers have managed to crack the 30 knots mark by lifting the 75kg light boat out of the water. But not everyone finds "foiling" so great, which is why there is also the classic version, the "floater", in addition to the "foilers". A fast boat needs not only the best hull, but also a good mast and a sail that meets the requirements. In addition to our standard sails, we can also build your individual sail in our sailmaker's shop and respond to your wishes. Details of construction, cut and material of your sail will be saved in our database, so that you can buy an identical sail even after several years.
Here you will find our range of A-Cat sails, from the classic cut to the state-of-the-art Decksweeper our offer covers the complete range.
All of our sails are specially tuned to the sailor and his equipment, deciding for it are:
In addition, we also offer spinnakers for the A-Cat for our lightweight wind specialists.
The sail for all foiling A-Class platforms with standard long rig.
The area in the top of the sail was reduced and added at the bottom to realize the maximum sail area.
The extended profile in the lower area brings the pressure point of the sail down, which simplifies handling especially when foiling.
The uncompromising sail for all ailing A-Cat platforms with short rig.
The shortened luff makes it possible to create a homogeneous surface with a perfect outline.
The low pressure point through shortened masts and deck sleeper UL makes the sail the first choice for all Foiler freaks!
The EC 18 is the simpler version of the LP 18 Membrane sail.
In this sail, we use a Pentex fiber, which is slightly heavier than the membrane cloth.Although the Pentex sailcloth is not designed with load-oriented fibers, it is still a regatta classic and used for example in the F18 class. Pentex is more durable than a membrane due to its higher weight.
Our recommendation for the budget conscious regatta sailor.
Our original model of the A-Class sail, radial sail cut made out of Apen06 Pentex.
Excellent all-round characteristics and the tough material makes it the first sail choice for leisure sailors.
Our A-Class Spi is the choice for many sailors in light wind areas, making the A-Class fun even with very little wind. The additional surface downwind increases the performance of the A-Class a lot.
Available in the following sizes,
The Spi can be equipped with snuffer patches or set up for Top-Down Furler system.
A suitable Spi-Kit (spinnaker pole, recovery system) is available on request!
