Featured Boat Of The Month

Sun Cat In Stock In San Diego

Clark Mills wanted to design a shoal daysailer that would rig and sail easily, quickly, and comfortably — as well as accommodate his family and friends.

The Sun Cat was designed as an easily driven, roomy day boat and overnighter with a shoal draft to gunk hole along coasts and in harbors not accessible to more burdensome yachts.

Outfitted with the Mastendr™ quick rig sailing system and (as installed on her little sister the Picnic Cat), the Sun Cat will provide convenient trailering and maintenance-free enjoyment.

Individuals who appreciate timeless design and quality fabrication, who wish to explore coastal waters and quiet creeks, and who demand value from a yacht, will warmly relate to the "new tradition" that the Sun Cat brings.
