BahiaLaser Bahia

Suitable for two or three adults or two adults and two kids. This is the ultimate boat for day sailing. 

The Bahia is stable and easy to sail, but not at the expense of performance. A spacious cockpit, inboard seats, and controllable power allow the sailor to feel safe and secure throughout the ride.

Should you capsize, the Laser Bahia's mast head flotation will help prevent an inversion making it easy to right.

The boat is equipped with an easy-to-launch asymmetric spinnaker, a roller furler jib system, and a trapeze.

Perfect for a day sailing and exploring around beautiful Middle Harbour. 



RS Zest 

The RS Zest is one of the most versatile sailing dinghies ever built. It is extremely popular with sailing schools in Europe.

The Zest is suitable for one adult, two teenagers, or an adult with one or two kids. It can be used as a single-hander or two-up with a jib. 

Quick to rig, easy to reef or right from a capsize, easy to beach, fun, and confidence-inspiring, this is a boat that can be sailed by everyone.

The Zest is great for beginners and lots of fun for intermediate and advanced sailors when the wind gets up.

The boats are stored close to the water's edge so you can be out sailing with minimum fuss.
