The Rebel is a one design class sailboat. All Rebel hulls are produced from the same mold. Rebels are built to the class rules and cannot be changed or modified by the boat builder unless authorized by the Class. This is the basic definition of all one design class sail boats.

The Rebel Sailing brochure shows photos with the typical crew of two, but the Rebel can also be day sailed with six passengers in the roomy cockpit. With its large steel center board, it is extremely stable and always comfortable to sail.

Rebel specifications;
Overall length - 16' 1 4"
Beam - 6'  7 1/2"
Draft - 3'  6"
Sail area - 166 Sq Ft
