What kind of sailboat is a Martin 16, and what are the features of this boat?
The Martin 16 sailboat was designed by Don Martin and has found success among many adaptive sailing programs. The boat can be sailed singlehanded (pictured right below) or with a companion (pictured left below). The Martin 16 uses a seat design to accomodate a wide range of disabilities, and an upgraded seat for those who need more trunk support is available (details below).
This boat is ideal for individuals who enjoy sailing and may want to partake in some racing, but are not yet at the highly technical and competitive level of the 2.4mR. The Martin 16 can also be equiped with steering adaptions such as joystick control and sip and puff systems (details below).
