REVIEWS SL 16
SL 16 catamaran, the next ISAF reference?
The SL 16 catamaran is one of the catamarans in the news at the moment, which is why we just had to test it and tell you what we think of it.
Who hasn’t heard of the SL 15.5 ? Well, Sirena has done it again with the SL 16 catamaran. Whilst the 15.5 is the catamaran the FFV chose for its younger sailors, the SL 16 catamaran is trying to win selection as the ISAF’s official youth catamaran.
Just for the record, Yves Loday designed the KL 15.5 in 1994; this catamaran came under the Sirena banner in 2002, becoming the SL 15.5 and undergoing a few minor modifications, such as the crossbeam inserts, new rudder blades… Then in October 2003, in response to the ISAF, who had established the specifications for its youth catamaran, Sirena and Yves Loday decided to optimise the SL 15.5 and presented the SL 16 catamaran.
