As the 1990s arrived Aquarius Sail teamed up with Bill Roberts of Roberts Catamarans to introduce the SC-22 and continue production of the RC-27, which Bill had developed on his own in the mid 1980's. The joining of forces between Aquarius Sail Inc. and designer Bill Roberts helped to develop the highest performance and quality catamarans available on the market today. Aquarius Sails has introduced Bill Roberts leading designs, in 1991 the SC-22/ARC-22, in 1996 the RC-30, in 2000 the ARC-21 and now in 2003 the ARC-17 . Throughout the 1990s and now into the 21st. Century the products built and designed by the team of Aquarius Sail and Bill Roberts has raised the benchmark in high performance sailing.
The name change of the SC-22 to ARC-22 in the year 2000 reflects Aquarius Sails philosophy of being committed to a strict one design fleet program. The superior performance of the 22 design has been demonstrated in both long distance and triangle racing venues since 1992. The decision to solidify the design was in response to the current 22 owners desire to level the playing field in the future.
