Holopuni OC3 Sailing Outrigger Canoe
All Holopuni Canoes are individually handcrafted by skilled canoe builders using high tech composite materials to ensure light weight, strength and durability.
The Holopuni OC3 SAIL has been designed with the demands of ocean sailing in mind. It has a great rocker for surfing waves and riding swells. The equally spaced iako and amas allow for sailing in any direction, including close reaches.
The optional dagger board increases directional stability, and the ama flotation enhances hiking and supports trampoline loads.
The Holopuni OC3 Sail incorporates reinforced iako mounts with the iako attachments raised an additional 3" on both the canoe hull and ama. This provides for additional water clearance when sailing in rough seas.
Two 15' matching sailing amas provide flotation and support for hiking out.
The Holopuni Iako-Trimaran set uses 2 amas that are rigged out at an equal distance from the hull. This is our favorite and recommended sailing set up.
Our iako design was created through years of R&D and consultation DGS WaterSports.
All canoes are hand-built and custom-made to order.
