The Sage Marine Pocket Cruisers are modern designs created by Mr. Jerry Montgomery, known for his sailboat designs of the 1970s and 1980s. The lapstrake hulls provides rigidity, tracking, wave deflection, and are a style trademark of Jerry’s designs. The Sage 15, SageCat and 17 are designed to be safe and seaworthy. Fractional sailing rigs provides performance and versatility. An overall light boat weight makes for easy trailering. The Sage 15, SageCat and Sage 17 are sophisticated enough for experienced sailors that might be downsizing, but simple enough for a beginner.
