The Enterprise is a good family or two handed dingy. It is a little smaller than the Wayfarer, which makes it a little lighter to handle on land but a little slower and smaller to sail on the water. This is a well proven dinghy which is safe and seaworthy. She might not be the fastest dinghy on the water but she sails very nicely and has a main and jib. The Enterprise has a roomy cockpit and an ample cuddy in which to store spare clothes etc.

This is a very good seaworthy sailing dinghy with a big following and a dedicated owner's association. You can enjoy the Enterprise whatever your age or weight. The older boats are wooden whilst the newer versions are mainly fibre glass, although you can still opt for a wooden version. Good sound sailing dinghy.
