Skeeta is the very latest, ‘3rd Generation’ foiling dinghy that incorporates all-round performance.
Thanks to Skeeta Foiling Craft, who designed the Skeeta, sailors now have the option to foil safely and comfortably on a boat which is stable and user friendly in both foiling and displacement modes. Whilst being fast, exciting and capable of foiling manoeuvres when up in the air, the boat also has excellent handling and stability in displacement mode. Due to all of these qualities and the wide wind range for sailing, the Skeeta is the ultimate all round foiling dinghy.
The Scow Hull
Skeeta's hull shape has been optimised for both foiling and displacement sailing and through more than 50 years of in-house scow development by Skeeta Foiling Craft.
Skeeta's foiling system is a culmination of more than 20 years' development with freely-pivoting foils.
Skeeta's wings can easily and quickly be removed in less than five seconds.
The high-performance, over-rotating rig is the product of many years of development.
Nikki is a brand new dinghy purpose built by big kids, for kids and lighter sailors.
An innovative, exciting new project enabling sailors to gain adaptable sailing skills and the ability to foil from a young age.
Nikki is a fully open, modern scow designed for learning to sail, foil and competitive youth sailing.
Its simple foiling system dramatically reduces the chance of 'foil crashing', as experienced with many other foiling craft, making it much more accessible to the wider public.
Nikki’s wings are very simple and being installed or removed in seconds.
The two-piece carbon fibre mast has different length mast bases to suit the sail size.
Tips & Tricks
At GP Watercraft we recognise that although sailing a foiling boat both exciting and rewarding, we are also aware that it is a new aspect to the sport and sailors may need some extra help understanding the basics before getting the huge rewards from dying above the water.
This is why we have included a tips and tricks section on the website, enabling you to get quick access to some top tips on everything you need to get going.
