The Fantail Series is available in three configurations; The DS (Daysailor), WE (Weekender), and the ST (Sail Trainer). All three feature classic good looks, “sit in” not “sit on” sailing, efficient high performance and a “green” sailing experience.
The Fantail strikes the perfect balance. Not a “retro design” or white-knuckle race boat, the Fantail is a well-mannered, high-performance contemporary design with classic lines. Offering a fine entry, tall rig, deep fin keel, retracting carbon bowsprit and high-aspect spade rudder, the Fantail sets it self apart from the competition.
On-deck, the Fantail series features a large and comfortable “sit in” cockpit. At nearly 9-feet long, it offers room to stretch out or share with a few guests for a quiet evening sail. In addition, the cockpit seats are contoured with high seatbacks for comfort, while the traveler is aft for the best mainsail trimming position to keep the cockpit clear and uncluttered.
The interior of the DS and ST offer the essentials: sitting headroom, 48 qt. Igloo cooler with 12 VDC refrigeration, AM/FM/CD player, a portable marine head, two seats, a double v-berth with convenient storage for day-sailing gear, and simply detailed, curved varnished trim. The Fantail WE offers additional headroom and trim detail, a simple galley unit with alcohol cooktop and sink, and a marine head with holding tank, ideal for that quiet weekend get away to a favorite harbor.

The Fantail DS and WE:
The Fantail Series is available in three configurations; The DS (Daysailor), WE (Weekender), and the ST (Sail Trainer). All three feature classic good looks, "sit in" not "sit on" sailing, efficient high performance and a "green" sailing experience.
The hull form is a contemporary shape without extremes, designed to deliver predictable and rewarding performance. She has a fine entry forward with plenty of hull volume in the topsides to properly balance the full aft sections. Through her mid body the sections are vee'd for a sea kindly motion. Running aft the sections are broad and flat for great stability and off the wind performance. The freeboard must be carefully balanced to provide adequate sitting headroom below, a dry ride on deck and exceptional good looks. The Fantail strikes the perfect balance. The Fantail is not a "retro design" or bare bones, white-knuckle race boat, but rather a well- mannered, high performance, contemporary design with classic lines.
On deck the Fantail series features a large and comfortable "sit in" cockpit. The cockpit is nearly 9 feet long offering plenty of room to stretch out or bring a few guests along for a quiet evening sail. The cockpit seats are contoured with high seatbacks for comfort. The traveler is aft for the best mainsail trimming position and keeps the cockpit clear and uncluttered. A self-tacking jib with double ended 2:1 sheets led aft provides efficient yet effortless upwind sailing. The sprit for the asymmetrical spinnaker is under deck with all controls led aft to the cockpit. The DS and WE are both elegantly trimmed in teak highlighting their classic sweeping lines, while the ST is finished with low maintenance materials befitting the ruggedness required for sailing school use.
The fractional rig is large yet manageable, featuring a self-tacking jib for efficient and effortless upwind sailing. A sail area to displacement ratio of 26 guarantees rewarding light air performance. Balanced by 1200 lbs. of ballast in a very low center of gravity bulb design, the Fantail will also stand up to a breeze. Off the wind, extend the sprit and set the large asymmetrical spinnaker for maximum performance without the need of a large crew. The Fantail DS and WE are fit with a carbon pocket boom with integral mainsail cover and lazy jacks for convenient mainsail handling. Efficient performance and ease of handling are the hallmarks of the Fantail rig.
The Fantail Series are built with low HAPS resins and processes that not only provide great physical properties but are also environmentally conscious. The Fantail continues to offer a green advantage as a daysailor/overnighter with non-polluting electric propulsion. Enjoy quiet motoring out of your favorite harbor in harmony with the environment. Electrically powered by a Torqeedo 2R Cruiser motor with remote forward/reverse and throttle allowing you to power in silence with only the sound of the bow wake. Once under sail, enjoy a cold beverage and some nice music, completing the perfect sailing experience. Dockside, the batteries are charged with the standard, efficient ProMariner charger that maintains both the 24 volt engine system and the on board 12 volt bank. If kept on a mooring select either the solar panel charging system or the wind generator system so your Fantail is always ready to go.
