American Sail Information
American Sail got its start in 1976 with the purchase of the Aqua Cat catamaran that has now been in production over 42 years and was recently inducted into the National Sailboat Hall of Fame. Our specialty for over twenty-five years has been making fun family sailboats from 8 to 18 feet. Over the years we have grown to offer many more sailboats in our line including a larger version of the Aqua Cat, the Dink line of tenders, and four daysailers that are the Aqua Finn, Pennant, American 14.6 and American 18 Daysailer.
The photo to the right is that of an American 18 Daysailer which an ideal small sailboat for those who are looking towards a roomy and comfortable daysailer which also has the added benefit of being designed for speed and performance. Incorporated features include a self-bailing cockpit along with a molded in drink cooler storage areas and three storage compartments, along with a kick-up rudder and centerboard and adjustable jib tracks. Furthermore the package includes Harken hardware and all stainless steel rigging.
As is the case with all American Sail products, the American 18 is carefully constructed of hand-laid fiberglass along with foam floatation making this a very durable and safe small sailboat. The wide beam and flat bottom style plaining hull allows for exceptional performance in a light breeze or in a heavy wind. This sailboats design allow for flat sailing with a minimal of heel.
