Utilising our skills and expertise of 40 years building Olympic and International Championship winning boats, we are proud to present the Ovi Optimist. Already we have had great success in Europe, with 11-year-old Mele taking the event win at Mindener Optibecher in Steinhude, Germany last weekend.

The boat boasts unrivalled weight distribution, confirmed by it's swing test results, N1 foils and optimised mast step positioning. As you would expect the fit and finish is second to none, with all boats built by hand here in the Tynemouth factory.

Prices for hull only starting from, £1860. For more details go to www.ovingtonboats.co.uk
