The M-16 has always been the people's scow. From its nimble
handling and easy sailing characteristics the M has developed many of
the finest sailors yet provided fun enjoyable sailing to the family or
the most competitive of sailors. It is solid and relatively easy to
sail, however it is more advanced than a Sunfish sailboat. It is an
excellent craft for family crews and younger sailors alike.
The M16 is perfect for 2 moderately sized people to race or pleasure
sail. The boat has all the sail-handling adjustments of a modern sloop
and a scow hull design that makes her very fast and lively. The M16 is
quick to respond and in some windy situations can be exciting to sail.
With that said it also can be fun to sail on days of moderate wind to
just enjoy the wind and sun on most any lake. The M16 has a minimal
draft and can be beached for picnics etc.
This is a clean / solid boat
and will return years of fun and entertainment for a small investment
versus purchasing new. You must see this boat to appreciate the
