Comet Zero

Comet Zero, a proper little dinghy…
An eleven footer that can be a one-sail dinghy you can row and motor, or a surprisingly fast asymmetric spinnaker junior racer.

Great for beginners. A handy size and light weight, the new Zero can be sailed and enjoyed by everyone. Comfortable, roomy and uncluttered, the standard Zero is beautifully simple with a stayed mast and single sail.

A pivoting centerboard is a lot more forgiving than the daggerboard usually fitted to small dinghies. All round “sit in seats” and a low cockpit floor give a great feeling of security, compared with some other beginners dinghies. An optional furling jib and the addition of toestraps raise the speed and excitement.

The Zero is not being built at present but there is an active second-hand market and boats become available on the For Sale section of this site
