The HAPPY CAT NEO is the perfect uncompromising boat for everyone who values the smallest possible packing size and the lightest weight when sailing, but also does not want to make any compromises.

Also ideal for solo sailors, 3 adults + 1 child, for young people and, in particular, anyone travelling with a camper/trailer.
Ideal for learning how to sail.

The HAPPY CAT NEO is ready to sail in 20-30 minutes from the car boat to the water.
Made of the highest quality down to the last detail.

The modern high performance sails have a balanced profile for light to strong winds. The “square head” or wide area at the top of the mainsail maximizes the sail and creates more power in the presence of light wind.In order to precisely adjust the mainsail and “square head”, the mainsail has a traveller which can be fastened in any position. The sail is cut on a diagonal to reduce wind resistance even on the lower area of the sail. Since there is no bowsprit, the sail exposes greater surface area and you won’t run the risk of hitting your head accidentally.

The mainsheet can be fastened in five different positions using a hook on the mainsail clew board.Additionally, the large viewing window at the bottom of the sail provides a erfect view in all directions in busy areas as a safety feature by helping to prevent collisions. These transparent areas are fibre reinforced to minimize strain and improve performance.Designed for increased elevation and faster speeds.Round profile frames.

CENTREBOARD and RUDDER BLADE

The centreboard and rudder blade are made of a very long, rugged aluminium profile which is foam filled to prevent water penetration. The laminar profile is designed to perfectly suit the passing water and produces
considerable pressure. This allows you to sail ‘close to the wind.’ Should grounding occur, these blades will automatically retract upwards. The centreboard can be fastened at any angle and stowed according to each wind speed and load.

The high speed rudder is positioned far back on the stern. That way, it is possible to steer the NEO in a stable and quiet manner. Much like a balance rudder, the braking swivels shift at the pivot point and automatically stop working at very high speeds. Thanks to this rudder, the CAT sails faster and can also be easily steered like power steering. If you let go of it, it is stowed for safety reasons so that the boat turns into the wind and comes to a stop.

Topping off the impressive NEO performance is its modern design and power house capabilities.
Swift as an arrow, it appeals to all ages.
