Wooden Ships Comments on this Ian Oughtred Puffin dinghy
Puffin dinghy designed by Ian Oughtred as light easy to use sailing and rowing dinghy.
This example was built by a joiner in 2003 for himself and was finished to a very high standard. Since then she has been used approximately 7 times and has been dry stored the whole time so is in superb condition.
These dinghies are very light due to their plywood construction and so are incredibly easy to handle, launch and sail.
She comes with a complete inventory including a cover and trailer so is ready to be towed away and taken sailing.
