The New Hartley 15 or H15 is the latest of the Hartley Boats exciting range of Rotomould training dinghies. Just like its stable mates the H15 is very easy to manage and delightfully responsive.  Particularly suited to those in the early stages of sailing the Hartley15 is easily rigged and sailed with a 2 or 3 sail plan. It can be sailed single handed or with up to 5 crew which makes it ideal for training schools. Comes with a choice of Symmetric or Asymmetric spinnaker.

This dinghy comes from the same design stable as the hugely successful Wayfarer and Wanderer and offers an even more compact version at 3.35m (12') which makes it very easy to handle both on and off the water by just one person, however it is CE certified for up to four and can be easily reefed or rigged with a spinnaker.



Based on the successful design of the classic this modern upgraded Wanderer has all of the great versatile features of the Wayfarer in a scaled down version. Measuring 4.27m (14') this beauty provides a comfortable and stable training platform for up to 4 adults.

The new Mark IV Wayfarer is CE certified for up to 6 adults, this 4.82m (16') classic dinghy is the all round favourite of sailing schools and resorts. Very versatile it can be rigged for sailing with symmetric or asymmetric spinnaker options with or without trapeze wires.

At 3.6m with a beam of 1.3m the Byte hull is built of foam sanwich GRP and weighs in a just 45.5kg. The prefect step from novice to performance sailing, the Byte shares the same hull as the Byte CII however this version has a Dacron sail and simpler rig to make it more affordable and better suited to the rigours of the training enviornment. When the time comes for a more challenging experience the Byte can easily be elivated to the high performance Byte CII by simply upgrading the rig and sail.
