Imagine owning a one-of-a-kind American classic that’s a blast to sail.
With its Sitka Spruce wooden mast / boom and fiberglass hull, the Kite’s a head-turner. Old meets new. Get ready for the comments you’ll get whenever you’re out sailing it. “What a beauty. I love your sailboat!”
Quick to rig & launch and easy to sail, the Kite’s an unsinkable Finn-like catboat that’s great for both new and seasoned sailors.
At one point it was such a popular class that there was a regatta in Newport called “The Flight of the Kites” with over 100 boats participating.
The flexibility of the spruce mast makes the Kite forgiving and fast. The sail is self-flattening with minimal traveler and downhaul / outhaul adjustments. It’s simply a lot of fun to sail.
Both boat and trailer are in great shape.
Feel the pride from sailing an American classic!
