1997 wyliecat 30' Have sailed and own 35 ericson/allberg c&c 38 jeanneau just to name a few. I have never sailed a boat like a wyliecat that was that easy to sail , fast and easy in and out of slips in california marinas. All lines can be handelt in the cockpit no need for head sail spinnaker shrouds, easy. Great up wind down wind with the wishbone and shocker lines realy can flaten the sail!! the free standing mast will spill wind at 20 to25ktn before it is nessasary to reef, that is simple all from the ****-pit. The wyliecat is a true single- hand sailboat. Just sailed the 39 wyliecat just as easy only a lot faster and no crew needet they just come alonge for fun.

Pros:
Cons:

Fast, simple, good looking and a great sailor. Catboat rig with free standing carbon fiber mast and wishbone. The boat is stiff (55% B/D ratio) and I have not yet reefed her, although all sailing and racing have been on San Francisco Bay...the unstayed, carbon fiber mast and wishbone rig combine to depower the boat perfectly as the wind increases.

She is a fantastic one or two person racing boat, and a great day sailor for four to six. The interior is extremely functional for overnights...huge V berth, enclosed head, galley...although max headroom is around 5'8".

The boat can be bought as an outboard model, although nearly all have Yanmar 1GM10 diesels (9HP).

The boat is well built in Santa Cruz, CA by Wyliecats, designed by Tom Wylie. It points unbelieveably well, and can point with everything in it's size but an all out racing machine. Downwind it's extremely fast, all with no spinnaker. A one sail inventory reduces cost. I've owned many boats over the last 25 years, and this is the best combination of speed, simplicity good looks, great sailing ability, and ease of shorthanding of any of them.
