Category Description

A certain advantage of the dinghies is that they can be used in shallow waters, which is especially important if the yacht is used on inland lakes and reservoirs. The usefulness of the presence of a cabin, even on the smallest of yachts, cannot be overestimated – it gives the chance to have rest, to spend the night indoors or simply to shelter oneself from the rain. The lifted centerboard allows the yacht to approach very close to the shore, while the lowered centerboard provides it sufficient stability and safety while in the open water.

It is also convenient to transport a dinghy in a trailer, and it is not difficult to launch it. In winter or between trips, a small dinghy can be stored on a trailer in the garage. Perhaps for some, the compact dimensions of the dinghies will be a minus – they are made no larger than 30 ft by length as larger dimensions are not safe.

The dinghies can be equipped with both outboard and stationary engines, and some models have a quick mast lowering system to help them pass under bridges without any problems. The richness of the interior also depends, in many cases, on the wishes of the customer – for cruises, one will rather need a yacht with a full cabin, gallery and bathroom.

Yachts having the prospect of participating in races usually have modest interiors. The sailing equipment of the yacht is also "customized" for specific purposes. Many cabin dinghies are characterized by high speeds and small tacking angles. Among these boats, there are also pure racing models, which are used in competitions of the highest rank.
