Well, here in the states the wholesale distributor, ATOMIK has just released it’s catalog page and opened up ordering for their new catamaran which is based on, and shares some parts with their DF65 monohull, which seems to have been accepted by a lot of sailors - here, the UK and down-under.
The new catamaran is about
660 mm/26 inches in length
400 mm/15.7 inches wide
1117mm/44 inches in height (not sure if from bottom of blades - or just the mast)
With the mast at 44 inches, there is a little room to add sail area since the current size is a bit smaller than a typical “A” rig for an RG65.
Weight at 1050gr/37 oz looks to be a bit on the light side, and I am wondering if it has enough mass to “punch” two hulls through a tack in wind and waves? Time will tell. It does come with all radio gear and transmitter, and requires 8 AA sized batteries in order to begin sailing. I did put one on order for myself to see and compare. Also want to review the M65 Class rules to see where the performance of this boat will be under performing against an all out M65 multihull. Cost delivered using “standard shipping” here in the US (about 4-5 days) is $189.00 How it performs will be the answer if this becomes a big hit like the DF65 - given a lot of sailors that count on a lead keel might have issues and will need some time learning to sail this. If my review isn’t very positive, this one will earn a spot in my grandson’s fleet.
