Quinsea Legend on ebay.  Bottom

  • Sounds fast?

    This is a 12 foot catamaran with white planning hulls, no dagger boards are needed. It comes with a Skip Elliot designed Mylar main sail and a canvas jib for a total of 185 sq.ft. sail area. Trapeze and harness, Harken hardware. It is in excellent condition, fun to sail and very fast.

  • Check out that mast rake.
    24 foot mast on a 12 foot cat.
    6 inch draft (max).
    It has a higher sq. ft. of sail to hull length ratio than any beachcat without a spin.
    Sounds like a wild ride in the ocean (survival situation)!

    Don't worry - "The Quinsea doesn't heal over like other cats. It out performs boats twice her size"

    I hear you.
    If this were true, we'd have heard about his wonderful vessel before now.

    With six inches of draft I bet it falls right over with any heeling at all, due to having virtually no bite on the water at that point.

    It occurs to me that those hulls would be great for a pontoon bass boat. I wonder if that might have been the designer's experience. No experienced shipwright would have designed any vessel without significant rudders, centerboards or a keel that would track through the water.

  • Not to be an anarchist here, but some of the features....could work.
    Admittedly, I have never sailed one of these, and the hull design does seem like it would lend itself more to a bass boat.
    However, I did own an Edelcat, Savage 15 which had no daggers and it's rudders were no deeper than the bottom of the hulls. This (rudders) made it really easy to launch and land, and surprisingly nimble. I could easily pull a hull and it was very stable while on the wire. It was far and away the easiest boat to maintain a lifted hull and incredibly forgiving.
    Granted, the hull design was much more like what we all are used to, so I likely agree that the advertisement is more marketing hype than reality, but I just wanted to point out that a similarly (somewhat) designed rudder system on the Edelcat worked really well.
    Unfortunately, my Edelcat was broken up in a N'easter a number of years back. Images in the gallery here.

  • This boat probably was fun and fine for what it is, a low performance easy and fun boat

    I bet it didn't point to well, and would be a real nightmare in a strong current but fun and fine on a lake setting
