  • Exceptional sailboat design by Jo Richards, especially for those looking to enhance their sailing skills and eventually compete.
  • Stable and durable triple-layer polyethylene hull that does not compromise performance.
  • Extendable aluminum carry handles slide from transom drain ports (optional upgrade).
  • Optional integrated wheel makes the Bug a breeze to maneuver around the boat park.

The Bug comes with your choice of standard 3.8 m² Dacron sail mainsail, which allows for the perfect boat setup for training and learning. The Bug also offers a more advanced sail plan with the Bug Race version for bigger and more advanced young sailors.

Product Reviews

  1. Great fun, plenty of room to grow with the boat.

    Posted by Mike on 24th Jul 2016

    Had a couple of Bugs for a couple of years now. One small adult and one child (age 8 when we got them, 11 now). We have both rigs for both boats. The Standard Rig is easy to sail and reef if necessary. The Race Rig is lots of fun, keeps you on your toes and very responsive to sail controls. We race in a handicap fleet and the only downside is the lack of a One Design series or championship in the UK. We've even rowed them from our local lake out onto the river and into town for ice cream! Very happy with these boats.

  2. Best boat for a 7 year old around!

    My daughter has been sailing her bug on her own since she was 7 and LOVES it! It handles well, is incredibly stable and whips the Opti's in her fleets' behinds (which she loves even more!). Just gutted she seems to have the only one in New Zealand!!! Send some more over here Laser! She has no-one to race and she will be devastated when she has to move to an old tub of an opti!
