Sail Cat AG 49’ - Inverted bows made in Brazil

Create a notification for "Catamaran"

The hulls are relatively fine, and the Divinycell PVC foam infusion construction is well mastered by AG Catamarans and its owner Amilton Gutierrez, who has been building boats for over 40 years. Ultimately, displacement remains comparable to that of mass-produced boats of the same size, as does the sail plan, which is somewhat limited in area by the self-tacking jib. This Sail Cat AG 49 should therefore be perfectly suited to long runs under gennaker (over 2,070 square feet / 190 m² after all!) when let loose. As for the finish, we haven’t yet had a chance to check it out ourselves, but the images we have are very convincing in terms of the general care taken in this project. Two Sail Cat models have already splashed and three more are in build. Layout plans suggest 3 or 4 cabins.
