  • Taipan 4.9 would be considered first generation F16 I would think.

  • According to the ratings a Taipan 4.9 with spin carries an F16 rating. This one does not appear to be equipped
    with a spin.

  • The ol 'Free Trailer' selling point.
  • is a great boat

    possibly has some factory support in Australia
  • All the pictures are stock factory photos-I would be weary.

    They are solid F16's, especially fast downwind as they are light, when converted to a spinnaker of course. There is some factory support from Goodall Design but not a ton. Finding used rudders/daggers would be tough for example.

    If you are looking for a bomb around boat, its a good choice but as they are light one must treat the hulls like A-Class hulls (they were originally derived from Boyer Mk. IV hulls IIRC). They will support more volume and take bigger waves.

    If looking for a competitive F16, probably best to focus on a Falcon, Viper or late gen Nacra F16.
  • Absolutely agree with Sam. Great one design cat and deservedly popular in Australia where there are lots of 4.9s. In the US it's kind of a rare boat, although a great one, but if you're racing one design and put a spin on it, it's an older F-16.
