Product Description

Amazon.com

Ordinary hard-hull catamarans have significant drawbacks: most require trailers, maintenance, and storage space, are difficult to master, and are generally quite expensive. The Sea Eagle 12-foot inflatable SailCat, by contrast, is simple and fun for beginners and families to sail, with a cost that's roughly six times less than a traditional catamaran. Unlike other catamarans, the SailCat uses a lateen rig, the simplest and easiest-to-use sail rig design around. The lateen rig sports just two lines--one to raise the sail and one to trim it--meaning new sailors, including pre-teens, will return from a day on the waves with smiles on their faces. It's a marked difference from traditional rigging, which is a confusing web that beginners can't hope to handle confidently without years of practice and expensive sailing lessons.

The SailCat is easy to set up, with a patent-pending folding frame that incorporates rugged but light aluminum slats and slide-in underbars. To use, simply unpack and unroll the SailCat--the whole thing packs neatly into two bags that store in your car trunk--inflate, and go sailing. As the hulls inflate, air pressure will clamp all the components tightly together to make the SailCat rigid and tight as a drum. You'll go from your car trunk to out on the water in less than 12 minutes.

Tipping the scales at just 97 pounds fully rigged, the SailCat is easy to transport when packed in its bags or even fully rigged. But don't let the full weight fool you, as this is one rugged little sailboat. You can sail anywhere with confidence in the SailCat, from rivers to ponds to the ocean. The hulls are made of 1,000-denier "crocodile hide" material--the same used in Sea Eagle's high-performance Sport Runabouts--while the mast and hardware are made of nautical-grade, anodized aluminum, a highly specialized alloy that combines light weight, tremendous strength, and a high resistance to corrosion even from salt water. Best of all, the SailCat requires only a light hosing at the end of sailing season for maintenance.

Other details include three aluminum cross benches, 45 square feet of sail, a foot pump, two cushions, and an oar set. The SailCat, which holds up to four people (up to 1,000 pounds max), measures 168 by 60 inches (W x L) and offers a wind rating of 0 to 25 miles per hour. It's also backed by a three-year warranty.

I have a home on a bay on the Caribbean Ocean side of Mexico in south of Playa del Carmen and Cancun. I wanted a boat requiring limited storage needs and the ability to walk out of the house and launch without the hassle of taking to a marina, or stated another way, I just wanted to walk to the beach, drop it in the water and go. This boat perfectly satisfies that requirement. Hobie cats are too large as my house encapsulates my entire property so there is minimal room. But when I came across this boat on my trusted Amazon with the ability to transport on a plane on my next trip and for under $2,000, I was intrigued but concerned there were no other reviews.

Having had the boat a week completing assembly and 3 sails I think I'm qualified to give an opening opinion. First, assembling this boat is actually fairly simple. BUT, the instructions are WOEFULLY inadequate. I have no sailing experience and was able to put the boat basically together. But I called one of my sailing charter friends to finalize the assembly particularly with the sail. The problem is the setup is different than what you might expect. So with a weak instruction manual and minimal experience you start to guess how the boat should go. The best thing we did was open the website where the video has the boat sailing and stop it repeatedly so we could see the boat constructed and then mimic how to do it. Even still, when finished we were missing two small rope parts to attach parts of the sail and we "thought" we were missing bolts to mount the keels. After waiting a day in rural Mexico to find the keel bolts we discovered that the inadequate instructions which didn't mention the keel did not need bolts.

There is a new version of this boat that is VERY different and a lot better. I'm not saying this is a bad boat, just that the new model is much improved. The new model if much, much, much faster. Unfortunately, both models have the same name: SailCat 14. The old model has the more multicolored sail (white with red, blue and yellow stripes) while the new better model has a 2-tone blue sail and the oar steering. The oar steering is preferable to the old model's rudder. You really need the oar for better control when coming about.

Wow were you as pumped up about getting this thing as I was after watching the infomercial from sea eagle? Then seeing the videos on youtube of the old man grinning as he sailed by sealed the deal for me.

After buying the sailcat (new version w larger sail and wider base) I attempted to put this together according to the instructions. The instructions were small (2in x 2in)black & white pictures that were taken from a distance at poor angles. Totally useless pictures, the written instructions were hardly any better. I had to call the support reps from sea eagle to translate the names of the parts and to explain the poorly written instructions. After the initial 2 hours assembling the base I decided to pack up and take it for a launch.

If you do not have a garage to store this in with at least the base assembled you will have to disassemble it (time consuming) for storage and transport. I'm a muscular guy, and this thing is a pain in the a** to move around. Very heavy bags. If you do it yourself count on making 6 trips between your car and the boat launch area, not to mention from the house to the car and then back from the launch to the car, and then from the car to the house or storage area. This is a total of at least 24 trips carrying heavy bags. This is very exhausting. Not exactly my idea of relaxing fun on my day off.

I like how the video shows the whole thing up in no time on the water with the one guy by himself. This is pure B.S. carrying this thing around is a two person job. With two people it still takes at least an hour to assemble before being ready to be put into the water.

Looking at the components I tried to account for the high cost of this boat. Aluminum boards, rubber inflatable buoys, and a sail. The whole thing should be no more than 300-400. $2000 is a complete ripoff.

I would not recommend this boat to anyone, especially after the headache i went through with it.

You've been warned.

First off, I bought this originally through amazon only to be shipped the wrong one. Let me tell you, sending it back is a pain in the butt too. I was very disappointed but Amazon did pay me for my inconvenience. I ended up not trusting to buy again so I paid more by purchasing directly through sea eagle so i know I would get the right one.

Now to start with the CONS:

This thing is friggin heavy and bulky. Holy crap do you ever need at least 2 people to help. Setting it up for me was actually not nearly as bad as some are saying on here. Perhaps the directions got better or because I have boating experience. However, if you plan on assembling it and taking it out for the day, and taking it apart for storage, you better start working out. This thing is HEAVY and a pain to move. You better have a storage area near by or some serious folding carts to help move. With the multiple bags some at least 100lbs, the battery, motor, etc this will be many trips and you will feel like you just lifted weights all day when everything is said and done. I live in a condo and stored it in my closet. It fit fine but I will have to get a storage on site to put it in. If you can, keep it assembled and store in a garage or something.

The other problem is the valve. I don't understand why they wouldn't have a cut off valve inside the air chamber! ie when you pump the pontoons up and take out the pump to seal it half the air comes out. You have to be really quick not to mention it makes me nervous when i am out on the water if the cap comes off you are going down in less than a minute. I made it work but they could have made it easier by having a seal to prevent air coming out when you unplug the pump.

YOU CAN NOT HAVE 4 GROWN ADULTS ON THIS THING OR YOU WILL GO UNDERWATER.
