Sailing a boat like the Wompus Cat is simplicity itself. She has just a single mainsheet and tiller to tend, yet with her wide beam she is capable of sailing fast and flat. Her generous cockpit offers plenty of room to bring friends without getting in each other’s way. In the cabin, there is plenty of room for comfortable and livable space, which is quite a trick in boat this size. The Wompus Cat is trailerable, and her draft allows her into shallower waters in your explorations. It’s hard to find an easier path to a full featured sailboat.
