World Wide Sailor

OverviewSpecifications

The World Wide Sailor is the best-selling training optimist dinghy in the world.

Its strong yet light Trilam PE, UV-resistant hull ensures an excellent sailing performance.

The World Wide Sailor sailboat has been especially designed for training sessions, with its extra reinforcements at vital points in the hull. The optimist is easy to handle, will always stay afloat and is self-bailing. After capsizing there will be hardly any water left in the cockpit, making the dinghy extremely safe and efficient during training sessions.

CHOSEN BY PROFESSIONAL SAILING SCHOOLS & CLUBS AS THE BEST TRAINING DINGHY IN THE WORLD!

We have boats in almost 50 countries around the world. Who’s next?
