The Aqua Finn is an ideal performance daysailer for use by both the inexperienced sailor and the seasoned skipper. It is designed for multi-person use or family situations where a durable, simple sailing craft is desired.
The Aqua Finn is an exciting accomplishment in the world of small daysailers. It is designed for the sailor seeking sailing performance, simplicity, and durability. This is the ideal boat for training, rental, or resort use with features not available in other competitive daysailers of this size and price range:
A cockpit large enough to accommodate two adults with an adjustable hiking strap and an aft cockpit drain.
An all aluminium spring loaded kick up rudder system which is designed to hold the rudder blade in a locked down position yet will kick up when beaching.
A rudder constructed of aluminum for durability, which includes a tiller extension and rudder lift system to raise or lower the rudder blade from the cockpit.
The high performance hull design features a high entry bow with a roll "v", which is designed to lift the bow of the Aqua Finn through the waves and allow for greater performance from the planing hull.
The hull is constructed of handlaid fiberglass utilizing a sandwich core of "coremat". This new type of construction generates stiffness in both hull and deck not normally achieved through conventional fiberglass layups. In addition, the stiffness of the "coremat" construction is light weight which makes the boat faster and easier to transport by cartop.
