The Quattro 14 has a hull shape similar to the PIXIE, but with the addition of small skegs (which help windward performance) and a larger, more sophisticated rig, and a trapeze for extra speed and power. Although many have been built over the years, very few builders have sent photos

As on the QUATTRO 16 aluminium tube crossbeams are used which throughbolt into the hulls forming a very rigid structure.

The QUATTRO 14 is for those who want to race, either singlehanded on the trapeze, or with two light crew (a youth trainer perhaps?)
