Pixie 14 sailing catamaran


Pixie sailing catamaran

The 14ft PIXIE is an entry level car toppable beach cat that has proved extremely popular, with hundreds now sold worldwide. It has often been built by Scout groups or as school projects. WoodenBoat Store markets this design. The PIXIE hulls are stitch and glue plywood and are assembled using slot together beams. No spanners, bolts or keys are required.

Complete assembly including rigging takes about 15 minutes. Each hull weighs about 45lbs (20Kgs) so is easy to cartop single handed. The rounded V hulls eliminate the need for daggerboards, making it easy to build and to sail off the beach. PIXIE is ideal for those new to boatbuilding and catamarans. It is also ideal for those who want a fun beach boat that sails well but who are not that interested in racing.

Also check out its racy sisters the Quattro 14 and Quattro 16 sailing catamarans, (also sold by Wooden Boat magazine). See more at my website www.sailingcatamarans.com
