An elegant 16′ catboat suitable for great daysailing and overnighting, designed by Tony Davis, and featured in either fiberglass or wood.

The 16-foot Lynx is small enough to single-hand easily, yet the cockpit seats four adults comfortably. Its cuddy cabin is fitted with 6-foot 2-inch-long berths and a portapotti. It’s a great place for kids to hide away or for the captain to nap at anchor. Of course, it’s also ideal for dry storage of gear. The Lynx’s forgiving qualities and incredible sense of stability mean it performs well in open water, but it’s most at home on bays and inland waters. It can be sailed in depths as little as 16 inches, and can even be sailed right onto a beach. As long as the transom remains afloat, it can be pushed off again.

The 16-foot Lynx in modern fiberglass comes with custom finish, teak, mahogany or oak trim, spruce spars, bronze fittings, coaming and rails, ash and mahogany tiller, traditional oak mast hoops, spun Dacron halyard and sheets, cuddy cabin with berths and cushions, room for portable head, and positive flotation.
