Comet Duo

At 12 feet the Comet Duo is a fun dinghy for learning to sail or single-handed recreational sailing. She is relatively light at 88kg, making her easy to manoeuvre and fills a gap between family sailing and junior dinghies.

The mainsail has slab reefing and the boat comes with a furling jib, so there is plenty of scope for beginners and single-handed sailing. The boat does not have a spinnaker.

The Comet Duo will trail easily and is ideal for outings. This is a dinghy for recreational sailing, not competitive all-weather sailing. She is available with a pad for an outboard engine and oars as an option. A fun boat for inland and harbour sailing.
