15' Classic Dinghy - Design 2596

Wood Wianno 15

This 15' dinghy was designed in 1992. Designated the Wianno 15, three boats have been built to this design in fiberglass and one in wood. The design was heavily influenced by the sandbaggers of the early 20th century. An interesting feature is that the free standing carbon fiber mast can be relocated in heavy air, configuring the boat as a cat boat. Once the bow sprit is removed, the forward mast partners is exposed allowing this reconfiguration and providing for the exact same sailing balance.
