I own one. It's a 2007 model, (first year).
I'd be open to selling it as I spend most of my time on my keelboat now. I've always wanted to take it around Ontario and launch it on some smaller lakes, but I have never got around to it
I have a video somewhere sailing along with a flock of birds near a rocky point. Some landed next to me like I was their.... It was surreal. And that's where it shines, calm waters near shore. It's a silent mover.
I have taken it out in 25 knots and while it was fun downwind, there was no way I was going to sail it back to my launch point - thankfully I got a lift back up the beach. That is to say that it does not point well.
And it is wet, wet, wet in those conditions.
In 10 knots it is a joy in protected waters. In any sort of chop - it becomes frustrating as the waves kill speed.
I have maxed out at 9 knots. 5 is average.
The mirage drive is fantastic.
It will not capsize in 25 knots, but the ama will bury.
The newer models are much better than mine - dryer seat, better sail, larger ama's, bigger rudder - so they will point much better.
They are very durable. I do not treat mine well.
Assembly on mine takes about 20 minutes - the newer ones are better. But heavier.
It's 16 feet long, so it's a bit of pain to transport.
It draws a crowd wherever it goes.
Storage is a bit whacky.
You can furl the sail and drop the mast en-route in 20 seconds to get under a 10 foot bridge - this impresses bystanders.
When you unfurl the sail and get moving you will think it's the most amazing thing in the world. You are sitting in a chair 2 inches above the water. And then you hit a wave and get wet.
