"The best most stable exhilarating dinghy on the market!"
The Wayfarer is a high quality, hand-built in Derby (UK), G.R.P. dinghy suitable for all the family. At just under 16 foot, this spacious dinghy can comfortably accommodate up to 6 adults although for racing you are only allowed a total of 2 crew.
Its excellent handling characteristics ensure that beginners quickly gain confidence and can relax and have fun sooner, but for more experienced sailors the Mark IV Wayfaerer racer is a sheer delight at club racing or the challenges of the very competitive racing circuit.
The foam sandwich construction, of the Mark IV, provides excellent stiffness, long-term durability and very stylish lines. G.R.P. is easy to take care of which enables the Wayfarer to be maintained at a very high standard for many years.
The Wayfarer is a very versatile craft with a vast range of options for training, cruising and racing. It can be rigged for one purpose eg. cruising and later re-rigged to a different configuration eg. racing to meet changing need or interest.
The Racing Wayfarer is constructed with speed and agility in mind and provides an exhilarating three sail performance under spinnaker. This boat is very suitable for racing on short or long courses on inland and coastal waters. There is an active Wayfarer class association that provides a full schedule of racing events locally, nationally and internationally.
