The TomCat 9.7 offers cruisers a perfect platform for safe and swift sailing. Unlike other multihulls of her price range and length, the TomCat 9.7 offers a 16' beam and proper bridgedeck clearance to handle open ocean sailing. The all-weather protection of the ingenious convertible saloon-bridgedeck provides 360 degree views and by retracting everything (centerboard, rudders and engines) she can sail in only 16" of water. Due to her weight-conscious hybrid-composite construction, centered weights and deep centerboard she also sails exceptionally well. There is no other small cat on the market which provides all of these features.
Best of all, you can trailer her with a special permit and she is built next door in Canada.
