*SailQube - Opti polyethylene school, complete

SailQube, is THE newest, fastest and coolest polyethylene dinghy, designed by Jo Richards!

The boat is suitable for everyone and is multi functional! It's an ideal practise boat for young sailors because of it's undestructable and unsinkable material. Because of the dimensions and styling, SailQube is also the perfect race trainer for the international Optimist Class.

The boat will be supplied in 3 options:
1) Hull complete with fittings
2) SailQube School complete ready to sail with school sail and school sleeve spars
3) SailQube Race trainer with Race sail, silver race spars and as an extra a ratchet block.

The boat is completely fitted with Optiparts / Windesign fittings, nothing else. So it is really easy for keeping spare parts, swapping things around etc.

The inserts for the ratchet block fairlead are already in the hull, so you can upgrade your SailQube school with a ratchet block.
