Full specification

Iain Oughtred Grebe dinghy built by the owner in 1998.

The Grebe is an attractive dinghy that is easily rowed by one or two people.  The design is also a delight to sail, this boat has a standing lug rig on an unstayed mast so is particularly easy to rig up and handle.  The sail is loose footed so there is no boom to hit unsuspecting children across the head.

Complete with 2 pairs of oars, rig and road trailer.  A very attractive boat that is easy to maintain and a joy to use, the perfect solution to getting afloat simply yet in a proper looking boat.
