Ducky15

Inflatable sail catamaran Ducky15

Ducky15 is a all-purpose beach catamaran.

If sailing extreme is not your priority and you rather need a multifunctional catamaran that you can easily operate on your own, then you should pay attention to this model. It has a reliable neat design, that was proven over the years of production. A spacious trampoline and a large load capacity will comfortably ride your family or friends. The catamaran is not overloaded with sails and has no boom, which provides additional safety in a strong wind.

Additionally, an asymmetric spinnaker – gennaker can be installed on a catamaran. It is an effective sail for downwind courses.

Also outboard engine with a power of 3.3 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.

DESIGN
FRAME AND TRAMPOLINE
  • The frame has a unique resilient design. At peak loads, pipes can rotate in joint units. This feature allows to withstand heavy alternating loads without damage and makes the frame very reliable and durable
  • The minimum number of frame elements provides low weight and quick assembly
  • The frame material is lightweight, durable and corrosion resistant aluminum alloy
  • All aluminum parts are anodized or powder coated for additional corrosion protection in seawater
  • The main trampoline is 1.8 x 1.9 m in size, spacious and comfortable
  • There is a cargo net where you can place people or luggage
  • The shrouds form a guard railing of main trampoline. This is additional safety and a comfortable support for the back when sitting
  • The side pockets are convenient for keeping a lot of things, including oars
  • Trampoline material is durable PVC net that allows water to pass through and prevents the puddles formation
FLOATS
  • Highly efficient float shape provides minimum resistance and maximum speed
  • Sharp stem makes wave travel smooth with minimal splashes
  • Each float has two sealed sections that provide added safety
  • Fast and convenient fastening to the frame with straps
  • The floats material is a durable boat PVC fabric with 1000 g/sq.m weighing
  • Extra bottom reinforcement for harsh environments usage
CENTERBOARD
  • Centrally located
  • Necessary area, good elongation and profile ensure effective movement of the catamaran against the wind
  • It has an automatic system of protection against damage when running aground or into obstacle
  • Regulated degree of immersion into water of the centerboard makes it possible to move against the wind even in shallow water
  • Сenterboard material is glass composite
RUDDER
  • Centrally located
  • It has an automatic system of protection against damage when running aground or into obstacle
  • Tiller extension allows to more effectively place your weight for balancing of catamaran heeling
  • Rudder blade material is glass composite
SAILS
  • There is mainsail
  • Large elongation, shape and profile of sails provide a high efficiency
  • An additional sail for downwind courses is the gennaker. It doubles the total sails area
  • There is no boom, that is important for the safety
  • There is Wishbone for effective sail setting
  • Sail material is Dacron or Mylar
MAST
  • The mast is rotatable, that improves the efficiency of the sail
  • It is held in working position by shrouds and stay
  • The mast consists of three sections
  • The mast float protects against the full capsize
ACCESSORIES
  • Catamarans are equipped with blocks, sheets, stoppers and other parts from leading manufacturers

ADDITIONAL OPTIONS
GENNAKER

Gennaker is an asymmetric spinnaker for downwind running including beam reach. A catamaran with gennaker significantly increases the speed, and in a fresh wind it can reach the hydroplaning mode. Recommended for advanced users.

OUTBOARD MOTOR BRACKET

Motor bracket is designed for mounting of outboard motor with extended deadwood (long shaft). Recommended engine power - 3,3 hp

TILLER EXTENSION

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).

SIDE POCKETS

Side pockets are designed to store small items, clothes and other things. Standard oars can be kept there also. The pockets are made of micro-net. They are attached to the cable-stay of starboard and port side, forming a kind of cockpit that additionally protects from wind and splashes.

MAST FLOAT

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.

SAIL FEEDER

There is useful option that significantly simplifies mainsail hoisting. It directs the boltrope into the mast track and eliminates sail jamming.

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.

PARKING COVER

Parking cover protects the catamaran from the sun, rain, dust and dirt.

SAIL NUMBER

Number is made from a self-adhesive dacron. The standard symbol height is 300 mm. The cost of one character without sticking is 2 euros, with sticking - 3 euros. Drawing of individual logo is also possible.
