An extract "We were soon under way and it was fascinating to see how easily she slipped through the almost mirror sea. She handled well, tacking without hesitation and answering accurately to her helm

She's a thoroughly modern, practical catamaran with sufficient design flexibility to appeal to anyone looking for performance combining style with comfort."

An extract "Overall the Sagitta proved a comfortable boat at sea with an easy motion even in the lumpy conditions (25 - 35 knots of wind and sometimes a bit more). Altogether she makes a very attractive boat....easily ran up to 14 knots on a reach despite not increasing the sail area once we came off the wind"

From a used boat description "Her first owner was a marine engineer who oversaw the construction in Cape Town in 1994, and then sailed her from South Africa to Brazil, and then up through the Caribbean and the Bahamas. Her second and current owners sailed her from Ft Lauderdale to the Chesapeake Bay. Fully loaded she has reached 21 knots in a 30-knot wind"

And from a singlehander who crossed the Atlantic "2800 miles in 21 days. I was single-handed, so some nights when the wind dropped, I left just a small amount of sail up and didn't bother myself with speed. The main issue I had to deal with was slowing the boat down"
