RS CAT14

This boat takes the enjoyment and handling associated with beach cats to a new level. Stiffness and balance defy the cost-effective durability of the RS CAT14’s construction – making the boat perfect, not only for training and recreational sailing, but also as a true performance pathway class. We’re excited – and we think you will be too! The design protected system for joining the beams to RS CAT hulls gives increased stiffness compared to other rotomoulded catamarans, with the added bonus of allowing the boat to be disassembled quickly for storage or transport. Durability : Convenience : Excitement – the hallmarks of the RS CATs.

WHAT THE SAILORS ARE SAYING…

Unbelievably stiff platform, proven fittings and systems from the CAT16, a fair amount of buoyancy in the hulls, can carry weight easily on top of being a junior boat. RS has got a winner here!

Nico Honor

Why change a winning formula? The RS CAT14 picks most of the characteristics of her big sister the RS CAT16 launched in 2014. The RS CAT14 is adapted to a wider range of use to allow youth and adult sailors have a lot of fun, with a minimum of constraints linked with set-up or care. It’s robust, ergonomic, well-built and easy to handle – the second Cat made by RS is clearly a success. To handle without care!

To me the RS CAT14 is much more than the little sister of  the CAT16. The 14 is small enough to go singlehanded – even with jib and gennaker. And its big enough for a full family cruise with two adults and a child. The 14 feels stiff like a GRP-cat and tacks lively like a dinghy – totally different to these low volume ‘long-keel’ beach cats of the 1970s.
