Stiletto 27: The Beachcat Grown Up
S27: Performance multihull meets trailerable, pocket-cruiser.
It’s hard to mistake the Stiletto 27’s appearance—typically with blazing topside graphics and aircraft-style, pop-top companionway hatches. It’s also hard for the average sailor to appreciate the sophistication of the Stiletto’s construction—epoxy-saturated fiberglass over a Nomex honeycomb core. There is probably no production hull built in the U.S. with a better strength-to-weight ratio than the Stiletto. And although the design is 40 years old, the Nomex honeycomb fabrication is still impressive.
