New: Canting keel sport boat... the CQ-6!

This boat was made with one goal: To bring the most advanced sailing technologies together in a compact, well-priced performance sports boat. The CQ-6 is easy to handle with the thrill of sailing a true canting keeler. The boat planes at low wind speeds. The design is extreme but the boat is very stable due to its wide and powerful hull shape. - Comes with Carbon spars, High aspect fin keel with lead bulb. The keel can be lifted for transport and storage. Push button controlled electronic/hydraulic canting keel and Twin rudders- Check it out at http://www.linqboats.com/

Linq Boats will launch the worlds first open canting keeler at "Boot 2009" (Dusseldorf, 17-25 January)
