The Laser 2000
One of the best selling double handed dingies on the market. The Laser 2000 is a very well thought out boat that combines a safe family sailing boat with some of the more exciting aspects of sailing such as the gennaker. For those family sailors who are finding the plod around the harbour a little tedious, this could be the anser. The 2000 is designed for comfort and the deep cockpit and gentle contour of the deck into the seating are just two examples of their consideration for the crew's comfort. Their is some stowage forward and the furling jib comes as standard. The boom is high, the hull designed to deflect spray, the rudder is nice and responsive and the layout is very sympathetic. Yet the 2000 gives a performance that is exciting and takes advantage of Laser's pedigree for performance design. Whether you are rigging the boat for a begiiner, with a reefed main and furled jib, or competing with the elements with the gennaker flying, the 2000 is compatable.
