- "You can put powerful engines on a sloop racer, but if the chassis doesn't have structural integrity, the whole thing falls apart."
- ―Jacen Solo
A sloop racer was a type of pleasure craft, presumably designed for racing. These vehicles could have powerful engines and lightly built structural frames, both features that aided speed, but it was necessary to balance the two in order to achieve a viable design.
Behind the scenesEdit
A sloop is a type of sailboat particularly associated with racing. It is clear from the context that a Star Wars "sloop racer" is a motorized vehicle, but it is not clear whether it is a boat, an aircraft, a spaceship, or even a ground transport.
