Ducky13 – the smallest in the Ducky catamaran family.
The smallest model in Ducky family designed both for the young and adult wishing to get acquainted with fascinating world of sails.
It is ideal “toy” for active recreation on the water, absolutely safe even under minimal handling skills.
At development this catamaran we have paid special attention to its construction which has possible minimum of assembly details, and in turn this reduce assembling time of catamaran until 20-30 minutes without tool using!
No ropes. Free standing mast excludes the probability of catamaran overturning under strong wind . The sheet is let off and the sail sets as a weather-vane on its own.
As you are tired to ride or feel like to sunbathe you can get the must out of the socket in few seconds and turn catamaran into soft cot. Trampoline – 1,8 x 1,8 mWhen disassembled and packed for transportation Ducky13 represents one 1,8m long pack of 10 tube elements and another one with floats, rudder, centerboard and sail.

Additional options Ducky13
Floats with shaped stems have more streamline form that enhances their hydrodynamics. In practice catamaran with such floats has more soft move and better speed as compared with standard floats by reason of the reduction of head resistance. You could feel this advantage especially in the case of windward running against short steep wave. These floats are recommended for achieving more high speed and better results.
Outboard bracket is aimed for fixing a motor with prolonged part. The recommended engine output is 2,2 h.p.
Tiller extension is aimed for steering tiller at a distance. This is useful device for more effective heeling and keeping with accurate trim difference of the catamaran (stern and stem loading).
The float on a mast is the inflatable capacity which doesn’t allow a catamaran to turn over a mast down. Such float will hold a catamaran in situation “on one side” and will facilitate catamaran restoration to equal Kiel, in case of capsizing. He won’t allow a mast to butt in a bottom and will prevent possible damages. The float on a mast has a streamline shape. In case of need, it is easily mounted and dismantled without use of tools. Complete with a float there are fasteners.
Number on a sail from a self-adhesive polyester fabric. A standard height of symbol is 300 мм. Cost of single character without gluing is 2 euros, with gluing is 3 euros. Drawing an individual logo is possible.
As an extension an outboard engine of 2.2 PS capacity can be mounted on special transom board braced to stern seat.
The frame, mast and connecting units are made of anodized high quality aluminum alloy. Profiled centerboard and rudder of fiberglass reinforced plastic. Sail made of Dimension-Polyant dacron (170 g/m2). All fastening elements are made of stainless steel. Float cases of two sections made out of Valmex, special PVC boat fabric (1000 g/sq.m).
