Choosing the right one

Laser Pico happy customer

No one sailboat does it all—but just one sailboat can provide you the fun you imagine and more. Choosing the right one is key, and it's a two step process.

Step one

  • Know yourself, and think about your needs
    • What size person will use it most?
    • How many people might be in the boat at any one time?
    • Do you plan to transport and rig it alone?
    • How big is the body of water on which you plan to sail?
    • If you live on a lake, will you be mooring or beaching?
    • In the even of capsize, might you be alone?

Step two

  • Learn the pros and cons of four basic sailboat types

    Just as there are different types of cars: sub-compact, sport, sedan, mini-van; there are different types of small sailboats. Each has advantages and disadvantages.

We know boats. Intimately.
