Sunfish Sailboats Will Make You Smile

Sunfish Sailboats are still one of the best little sailboats in the world.  Some may discount this little mess about boat as a toy but you will find lots of great racers drawn to the many regattas each year. The Sunfish happens to be the most popular recreational sailboat in history. Its classic design, unmatched stability and sailing ease are enjoyed by all ages. You will love the lightweight hull.  No need for a trailer, this boat is easily car topable. You have to admit that those sail colors are a lot of fun.  I have had a great time sailing the Sunfish.

If you’re drawn to competition, check out the race version.   Included are an outhaul, cunningham, race-sail with window and quick-release gooseneck. The International Sunfish Class sanctions more than 1,000 racing events each year.

From the Laser Proformance Website here are some of the Sunfish Features

  • Convenient storage space in the back of cockpit for extra gear or a cooler.
  • Patented kick-up rudder for effortless beach launches, landings, and shallow-water sailing.
  • Self-bailing cockpit.
  • Lateen-rigged sail automatically de-powers when hit by a gust of wind.
  • Single control line with the mainsheet makes sailiing the Sunfish a simple pleasure.
