Two access 2.13 boats

Access 2.3

www.accessdinghy.org

Designed and built in Australia, the Access 2.3 Wide can be sailed by a single sailor, or by two average sized adults. The steering is controlled by a joy stick in the centre of the boat. Sip and puff or electric technology can be added, but the program at RHYC does not currently have this technology. The seat is a hammock style and the sail is a simple single sail. The weighted centerboard and floatation tanks make the boat very stable and safe. It is an ideal boat for potential sailors of all ages.

Length: 7 feet, 6 inches
Width: 4 feet 1 inch
Draft: 2 feet 6 inches
Capacity: 2 persons (220 lbs solo and 275 double)
