Cat Boats, Newport is a 1901 Impressionist painting by American artist Childe Hassam. This work is located in the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
A cat boat is a type of single-masted sailing vessel with the mast set far forward. It has a single sail, usually a gaff sail, which is a four-cornered fore-and-aft rigged sail.
Cat boats are characterized by their simplicity and ease of handling. The mast is typically unstayed and is set up near the front of the boat.
Cat boats are often used for leisure sailing, and their design makes them popular for daysailing or cruising.
