Catalina Expo 14.2 sailboat by Catalina Yachts
One of the Easiest boats to rig and sail – one of our most popular boats
here is a you tube video showing how the sail rolls around the mast
The design of the Catalina Expo 14.2 is based on the hugely successful Catalina 14.2. Having built over 5,000 Catalina 14.2s the Expo is intended as an alternative rig configuration for those new to sailing or experienced sailors who want to enjoy the fun of small boat sailing in a simple, non-technical fun boat.
The SmartRig system consists of a tapered carbon fiber mast and deck stepped Hoyt boom.
Just two lines control all the sails power.
One line controls the sail size, while the mainsheet line shapes the sail.
Strong, yet flexible, the mast bends in the gusty conditions instead of the boat heeling excessively.
Having far less weight than an aluminum mast, the boat is more stable, with less tipping. At the end of the day, just pull the furling line and the sail wraps completely around the mast.
The mast and boom are free-standing and have no wires or chainplates to work around.
This not only greatly decreases set-up time, but makes for a roomy, more comfortable, inviting cockpit. The one-piece aluminum Hoyt boom is up high and out of the way, with no chance of falling into the cockpit.
