Description:

The PIXIE is an entry level car toppable beach cat that has proved extremely popular, with hundreds now sold worldwide. It has often been built by Scout groups or as school projects. The American magazine "Wooden Boat" market this design alongside its bigger and more racy sister the Quattro 16. The PIXIE hulls are assembled using slot together beams. No spanners, bolts or keys are required.

Complete assembly including rigging takes about 15 minutes. Each hull weighs about 20Kgs so is easy to cartop single handed. The rounded V hulls eliminate the need for daggerboards, making it easy to build and to sail off the beach. PIXIE is ideal for those new to boatbuilding and catamarans. It is also ideal for those who want a fun beach boat that sails well but who are not that interested in racing.

This is my home-made 14' Pixie catamaran (Sally) on Lake Macquarie, New South Wales, Australia. It was crazy windy and clearly I'm an amateur!
