Wooden Ships Comments Uffa Fox Flying 10
The Flying 10 was designed in 1948 by the great Uffa Fox as a smaller companion to his highly successful Flying 15. This boat was built in 2017 by Loftus and Johnson based in Scotland and exhibited at the 2017 RYA Dinghy Show where she won Best in Show.
An immaculate boat built to the highest standards and in ‘as new’ condition. The design is extremely clever as she can be easily handled by a child sailor but can also easily take 2 adults and be a testing and rewarding boat for an experienced dinghy sailor. The fin keel design offers a different and probably more rewarding sailing experience than that gained in a centreboard dinghy.
She comes with a custom road trailer and all over cover so she is a complete package, ready to go and be used. She is so good you would almost want to put her in the living room and stare at her!
