The Paper Tiger is a 14 foot (4.3 metre) catamaran, normally sailed by one person.  It is fast and easy to sail, and is widely sailed in New Zealand and Australia.

Paper Tigers can cost anywhere from a few hundred dollars to $15-$20,000 new, but a competitive club boat will typically cost $2,000-$5,000.  You can buy a cheap one and gradually bring it up to competitive grade, provided the hulls are sound.

A road trailer is recommended.
