The Sunfish is one of sailing’s best known brands. Unmatched in simplicity, its user-friendly design continues to combine performance, economy and fun. Its lightweight hull, kick-up rudder system, and maintenance free design affords easy launching and retrieval. An ultimate beach craft, the Sunfish holds its resale value due to a robust construction, highlighted by hard chines and a flat underbody. The lightweight dinghy offers six sail color options, can be stored almost anywhere, and is a snap to car-top.
Laser PICO - Built for family fun.
With its simple reefing system, spacious cockpit, and high boom the Pico continues to be a popular sailboat for all ages and abilities. A roto-molded hull provides a strong, buoyant structure that is superbly stiff and stable. Both the jib and reefing mainsail are removable. The high boom provides ample head room and highlights its spacious, self-draining cockpit. Easy to handle, a snap to rig, the Pico provides a rapid learning curve for single-handed sailing.
The Bug is the newest addition to the Laser Performance family. Excellent hydrodynamics and outstanding upwind performance push the Bug into the future with ultimate off-the-breeze sailing. The unique hull is a combination of performance and style in a stable platform. Overall, it is a sailboat with superior downwind control.
The Bahia’s versatile design provides a great platform for leisure or racing. A spacious cockpit, high boom and storage box caters to the family or up to five adults. The Bahia comes standard with durable Dacron Main and Jib sail. With a simple addition of a trapeze kit and a hoist of the gennaker, you’re off to the races!
The Vago offers a single-line launch and retrieval system for the gennaker as well as interchangeable sails that don’t require extra rigging. Its high boom, GNAV vang, and cockpit design support both hiking and trapeze options.
The Club FJ is a tough, agile performer for beginners to elite sailors. The Club is a fantastic choice for clubs and junior programs looking to introduce young sailors to double-handed sailing with a spinnaker. Our Collegiate version (no spinnaker) is the most popular boat in college sailing; more collegiate sailing teams in North America sail our FJ than any other double-handed sailboat.
The Club 420 enables young sailors to learn teamwork, trapeze and spinnaker techniques that simply can't be learned in single-handed boats. Safe for beginning sailors and quick enough to keep collegiate All-Americans interested, sailors graduating from the Optimist class will find the C420 to be manageable and a lot of fun.
It includes the impressively light and rigid hull of the Z420 plus all the go fast goodies that make it an ultimate speed machine. Just a few of these features include the tapered mast, fat head laminate sails, adjustable jib leads, fully adjustable mast ram and high aspect ratio foils. The OMEGA is the speediest and most fun collegiate boat on the market.
