The sailingmarket has been waiting for this plastic Catamaran. The Playcat was designed by Melvin & Morelli and is perfectly suitable for beginners, sailing schools and holiday renting businesses because it is tough, strong and simple. However it sails like a proper Catamaran, something unique in plastic boats. The Playcat is as well the perfect craft to bring with you on family holidays.

The hulls are made of moulded Polyethylene with extra thickness on the skegs to give the boat long life on the beach. The Playcat is light and can be easily handled on a beach trolley. Beams are smoothly moulded into the hulls so that all sharp edges are removed. A single boomless mainsail made of long lasting monofilm gives control through the mainsheet and the traveller for all points of sailing.

You only have to raise the mainsail, hook on the main blocks and you are away!

On the one hand sailing schools and holiday resorts still want a boat that sails like a Catamaran. But on the other hand they want freedom from worry, low repair bills and clients returning day after day for another sail! That is exactly what they will get with the Playcat. Just wash it down with fresh water every evening and the Playcat will be ready the next day again, ready to work for you. Therefore the Playcat is the best investment a sailingschool can have!

Moreover, for a family the Playcat offers sailing for a serious lower price than it has to pay for “glass” hulls. The plastic hulls are there to do a job and the Playcat does it very well. Plastic hulls are not better than “glass” they are just different!

The Playcat can be seen in clubs and resorts all over the world. Just go out there and have fun.
