Have you ever sat on a beach, looking longingly at a blue water playground and wishing you were out there?
Now sailing is for everyone who wants to enjoy playing on the water. Funboat is so easy, if you can ride a bike, then you can do it. Get ready... it'll take just minutes. Slide the sail along the mast, pop the mast into the boat and the rudder on the back. And then you're off, enjoying every minute, looking back at the beach at people wishing they were out there with you.
Just who can sail Funboat? If you can ride a bike, you can do it. Age is immaterial. And like a bike you steer and go... except on the Funboat the wind does the work for you.
Design and Development
Yves Lodey and Reg White joined the in-house team to help design the Funboat. The design brief was for a boat that would be easy to sail and addressed the barriers people had when learning to sail. The result is a boat that is ideally suited to beach and holiday sailing due to its ease of use and low running costs.
The shape and design of the Funboat means maximum stability, ease of sailing and fun for all:
The shape outside - Funboat's shape means there's lots of stability wherever you sit. Far more than on traditional sailboats. It also means that the Funboat slices through the water.
The shape inside - There's stack's of room inside.
The headroom - The boom is very high. Which means lots of room underneath. And no need to bump your head.
The shape underneath - Most small boats have a centerboard that needs to be lowered when going afloat - and raised when coming back. Funboat's unique shape means there's no need for a centerboard. So no hassle leaving or returning to the beach.
The Funboat comes as standard with a Dacron mainsail. The boat also benefits from the unique reef system that can be operated when afloat. The mainsail simply furls around the mast – simple as that! There are no knots to tie.
Two piece aluminum mast. To go sailing you simple slot the two piece mast together, feed the mast into the luff tube, clip the boom on and go.
Fitted throughout with Holt fittings for durability.
