Isotope and Cheshire Catamarans
Rigged, sailed, righted by one person.

The Isotope and Cheshire are performance catamarans. The balanced design makes it possible to fine tune for maximum performance - all of the equipment is there as the sailor's skill level grows. Many safety concerns are addressed with hull flotation [], foam inside the top of the sealed mast, and a righting bar. Also available is a removable pocket on the top panel of the mainsail in which a piece of foam flotation can be inserted.

Isotope CatamaranQuality. Our two sailing cats, the Isotope and the Cheshire, are built per order so that each boat is what the owner wishes within class specifications. Our crafts are manufactured with reinforced molded fiberglass hulls and equipped with the best marine hardware. The thoughtful design and workmanship assures the owner's satisfaction and earns the boats the reputation of being the "Smart Cats."
