Quick Overview

Want to pass the entire fast lane? The Wild Cat is your ticket for all-out, hold-on-for-dear-life thrills. The project began when Hobie Cat Europe tasked a panel of world-class sailors, naval architects and sailmakers to create a cat capable of dominating F-18 racecourses. High-performance touches include wave-piercing bows, an integrated wing-mast section, high-aspect ratio daggerboards and rudders, dual trapezes, a spinnaker launching and retrieval system, and seriously fast hulls. Whether you’re ready to take on the F-18 scene, or simply looking to taunt your local harbormaster, the Wild Cat has speed to burn.
