Pikanto designed by Graham Bantock are available, beside SAILSetc, locally in Croatia, Italy, Australia, the Netherlands, Brazil and the United States. So far, on European and World Championships, only those built in Croatia matched the performance of Pikanto boats built by the SAILSetc.
Pikanto performance on 2009 IOM World Championship in Barbados was outstanding. 13 wins in 19 races!
(without preliminary race)
Among mentioned 13 wins, 7 wins belong to boats which are not exactly the same as original. Those Pikanto  boats ued by members of CRO team are:
- Designed by Graham Bantock,
- Hulls have been built by Robert Grubisa,
- Outfitted with SAILSetc foils and fittings and
- Fine tuned by Zvonko Jelacic.
Final results: Zvonko Jelacic - World Champion,
Mario Skrlj - third,
Marko Matic - fifth and
Ante Kovacevic - eight placed

on World Championship. Not bad!

Option A

The hull is outfitted with "compartment" on the port side of the opening in which batteries and receiver are positioned. The idea is the same as for Option B. "Compartment" is opened on the upper side so you have easier access to the batteries and receiver but if you don't close properly the opening with sticky back Dacron - it is likely that batteries and receiver will be wet. Switch is installed on the boat. Fin is moved aft.
Boats based on this specification have been used by CRO team in the last IOM Worlds in Barbados.
Option B

Weights (winch, servo and batteries) have been shifted forward to be as close as possible in the LCG of the boat. Therefore, RC pot is situated below deck and deck opening is closed with sticky back Dacron. This opening must be opened each time you want to change the batteries. Switch is installed on the boat.
Fin is moved aft.

Colour of the hull
Curing temperature of the moulded part is 35-40 deg Celsius. Please see
http://pikanto-rg.weebly.com/instruction-for-maintenance.html for additional info regarding care of moulded items. Heat will certainly destroy the shape of the hull. Therefore black pigment is not available. 

Available colours are as follows:
(Note: As guide only. Boat colour maybe slightly different.)

Mazarine blue


Quill grey


Smoke grey
