What is a kite proa? A Proa is an old well-proven fast boat concept from the Pacific islands. The Proa has one bigger hull and a smaller second hull connected with beams. Unlike most vessels, she does not have a front and a back – she is symmetrical. Instead of tacking or jibing, she shunts which is the change of sail directions. Well, a proa powered by a kite is a kite proa.
Why a kite proa? A Proa powered by a kite creates a sweet spot of great characteristics for a super versatile sailing boat.
