RAKUSU was the boat show sample when they introduced the 1260 model. It immediately made Cruising World “Best Cruising Catamaran under 50 ft” in 2018.
It is a brilliant design with a very large living space when the innovative “Trifold” cockpit door is opened. One very special aspect is the there is no plywood used in the construction, just infused Vinylester and foam core construction.
RAKUSU is easily single handed with most of the controls leading to the helms and a self tacking jib.
RAKUSU is currently being shipped to West Palm Beach and will be available for viewing soon.
