Happy cat Neo – Questions
Dear forum members.
It’s a great pleasure to read such serious discussions and smart and professional thoughts. I have 2 questions regarding my plan to buy a Neo cat.
1- I couldn’t find ananywherehe speed of the Neo. I am sure it’s slower then the Evo, but is it much slower? Does ananyone have speeds when sailing single or double-handed
2- I had a Smartkat catamaran for a few years. I am switching to Grabner because I think the quality is better. But I don’t understand how come the Smartkat is good for Beufort 6 and the Neo only for Beufort 4. It seems to me that it should be at least Beufort 5 and because of the better quality – even 6. I live in Israel and I liked to sail with the smartkat and with other small dinghies strong sea and I don’t want to worry about the Neo’s capabilities.
The reason for not buying the Evo is that most of time I sail alone and it seems that turning the boat after capsize is much easier with the Neo. But I still hope to sail fast so this is the reason for the first question.
Thank you very much.
