CIGALE 15 QR

performance aluminum sailboat

Experience the thrill of performance sailing with the Cigale 15. Discover the advantages of its aluminum construction, hydraulic lifting keel system, and efficient deck layout.

Fast and elegant, the Cigale 15 is built using 100% aluminum to ensure your safety.

The hydraulic lifting keel system allows owners access to shallow water areas, giving them the advantage of finding secure anchorages without sacrificing performance.

The efficient and simple deck layout allows a short-handed crew to sail the full potential of the boat without any effort. 

The combination of the lifting keel and the standard carbon mast are major assets for efficient and comfortable performance sailing.
