Ducky17 – the cadet of the model Ducky19.
With this catamaran you will have an excellent time on the beach. Your partner will also find a work to do at the catamaran, as this model already has a front sail, the staysail, and, by client’s demand, the model may be completed by an additional sail, the genakker.
As in case of Ducky19, with this catamaran it is possible to undertake complicated long term cruises in various water areas. But, unlike its senior brother, this catamaran has a rather simplified construction. It makes it lighter and makes the assembly easier to do, which is substantial for the crews of 2 to 3 persons. Assembling and disassembling are realized without tools.

For those who have already mastered the management of the catamaran in the basic configuration, and wants to get even more thrills, there is an additional sail – Gennaker. This is an asymmetric spinnaker, which is carried on the full course. Gennaker will significantly increase the speed. With such a sail, in a fresh wind, the catamaran is able to go into the gliding mode and accelerate to 20 knots!
In the production of our catamarans, we use only high-quality materials and components from the world’s leading manufacturers. The frame, mast and connectors are made of aluminum alloy, which has high strength and lightness, and also has high corrosion resistance in sea water. For additional protection against corrosion, all parts are anodized. Сenterboard and rudders of fiberglass reinforced plastic. Sail made of Dimension-Polyant dacron (170 g/m2) or mylar. All fastening elements are made of stainless steel. Hulls of two sections made out of Valmex, special PVC boat fabric (1000 g/sq.m).
