Our lapstrake Captain’s Gig offers the look of traditional wood construction, but is built with modern, low-maintenance materials. It sails remarkably well, especially to windward, and the true wineglass transom and long keel offer excellent tracking, leaving a virtually flat wake. The Captain’s Gig looks equally at home on the deck of an elegant yacht or in front of a cabin at the beach.
In 1993, we flared the transom into a ‘champagne glass’ shape and increased the beam, which dramatically increased the capacity and stability. This is one of the most stable monohull sailing dinghies available.
