Project Description

Global developed a lightweight, easy to sail, dinghy in conjunction with G-force Yachting.

All components were vacuum infused to ensure consistency in weight and quality.

Specifications:

  • LOA: 4.31m
  • Beam: 1.43m
  • Mast height: 5.98m
  • Hull weight: 72kg
  • Hull: Resin infused, vacuum bagged FRP (fibreglass reinforced panels) with honeycomb core.

Key attributes:
Cost effective, simple, fast, and stable.

The objective of the Rebel project was to create a high performance, low cost dinghy, which would attract more young people to the sport of sailing. While the novice finds it easy to sail in the standard configuration, the upgraded boat provides an exhilarating sail for the experienced sailor.
