Tabu- A Planing Sailer

  • Availability: In Stock

Designed by William Jackson

By combining new materials with improved techniques of water dynamics, this sports sailer brings about a new concept of high-in-the-water speed sailing

Speeds of up to four times faster than conventional sailers of comparable size are possible with the "Tabu". To achieve this speed, it rides over the surface instead of forcing its way through it. It performs much like the outriggers made by the Polynesian Islanders whose handmade craft often exceeded 20 mph. Several years of research have gone into designing this sailer. By following the designs given in this article you can build a craft just like the one that we came up with and proved to be a successful planing sailer.
