As a result of experiments and searching, it was possible to create a unique design that combines the best qualities of inflatable and solid-body catamarans. Sensations from the control of this catamaran are similar to those from the control of a solid-body catamaran. At the same time, due to the small weight of the catamaran itself, even better dynamics are provided, and the low keel shape of the floats in combination with the two rudders provides excellent steering and control in all weather conditions.
Having such a simple design, the catamaran is assembled without the use of any tools within 30 minutes!
