The class appeals to home builders and the boats are very easily transported. Essentially a box rule with minimal constraints. A 65 Class will usually be made almost entirely of carbon fibre - hull, foils, spars and fittings.
BOATSetc is your source for high performance pre-preg carbon RC sail boats. We can provide hulls, kits through to ready to sail boats.
The SAILSetc designed 65 named ARGON performed very encouragingly in its first season winning the 2012 Gold Cup and the Euro Cup in the following year. ARGON also won the GBR championship in 2013 and 2014. Like the other SAILSetc boats made using pre-preg carbon it has the fin box and mast tubes incorporated into the primary hull moulding thus ensuring consistency in geometry and saving weight.
