Ducky13 is the smallest in the Ducky catamaran family. It is intended for both children and adults who want to get acquainted with the fascinating world of sails. This is an ideal “toy” for outdoor activities, absolutely safe even with minimal control skills.
The laconic design of the Ducky13 frame, the absence of cables, a free-standing mast make the assembly process as simple as possible, fast and tireless. Even a beginner can assemble it in 25 minutes! When disassembled, the catamaran is very compact and can be easily transported even inside a passenger car. Depending on the configuration, the weight of a fully equipped catamaran starts at 35 kg.
When designing this catamaran, special attention was paid to safety. Rig is done so that when wind is getting stronger the mast will bend and drop the extra air off to prevent rollover. In сase of strong gust of wind, it is enough to release the sheet and the sail will get into wind-vane position by itself. If catamaran somehow capsized and the sail laid down on water, then the float on mast will serve as additional protection against a complete rollover. The crew is able without assistance restore the catamaran to an even keel. The absence of a boom in rig is another feature that makes catamaran injury safe.
Large size of trampoline – 1.8 × 1.8 m, will allow the crew to comfortably accommodate and can serve as an excellent platform for sunbathing on the shore.
Also outboard engine with a power of 2.2 hp can be installed on the catamaran. For this, in the additional equipment, a motor bracket is provided, which is attached to the aft beam.

OUTBOARD MOTOR BRACKET
Motor bracket is designed for mounting of outboard motor with extended deadwood (long shaft). Recommended engine power - 2.2 hp
The tiller extension is designed to control the tiller from a distance. This is a useful option that allows more effective heeling balance and maintain accurate catamaran trim (loading of stern or bow).
The mast float is an inflatable tank that prevents the catamaran from turning the mast down. The float will keep catamaran in “on a side” position and will facilitate the righting of the catamaran to an even keel, in case of capsizing. It will not allow the mast to sink into bottom and prevent possible damage. The mast float is streamlined. If necessary, it is easily mounted and dismantled without the use of tools. Fixators included.
BOTTOM HULL PROTECTION
An additional strip of fabric glued to the bottom. It is recommended for severe operating conditions, such as: a shore with sharp stones, mollusks, and other cutting and piercing elements.
