Falcon Marine’s Formula 16 and Formula 18 catamarans are optimally designed to allow sailors of all ages and skill levels to achieve top speeds in a safe and controllable manner.
The highest quality sailboats built for you.
The F16 class has quickly established itself as one of the fastest growing multihull organizations. This is primarily due to the class’s unique combination of performance and versatility. The design concept has and continues to prove itself.
On the race course, single-handed teams have shown to be equally capable of directly competing with crewed teams.
In mixed fleets the light weight and performance of the F16 allows it to be raced on an equal footing with other larger spin rigged boats.
The ease of rigging, moving and launching a light weight platform minimizes hassles on the beach. It also makes it much more likely that you will go sailing when the opportunity presents itself.
On the water the lighter weight of the F16 translates to performance. You have unmatched feel of the boat and of the conditions while sailing. Performance with less sail area means lower sheet loads, less tired crew and more fun for smaller and larger crews.
The Falcon F18 made its debut at the 2012 Globaltech World Championships in Long Beach, California as the newest F18 design.
The team at Falcon Marine has been involved with many different hull and propulsion design and development projects, but our previous sailing catamaran development experience has been with the very light weight of the F16 and A performance classes.We approached our F18 design from a very different perspective. While the F18 class rules do not allow for ultra light weight boats, it was important for us to have our design perform and feel like the other classes we have been involved in.
We build high quality carbon spars for a variety of boats including the F16 and V20 Osprey foiling trimaran.
While we are now widely known for our winning performance sailboats (F16 and F18), we got our start as a premier manufacturer of private label products for the industrial, marine, entertainment, transportation and aviation markets.
We continue to develop composite solutions for these industries and apply our knowledge base and manufacturing expertise to new projects for customers.
