Merlin (but not Merlin Rocket) or Bravo it is the same 2-3 person dinghy. It is avaliable in Germany, Benelux and Poland. The boat has three versions: 7 sqm, 8.5 sqm and 10 sqm of sails (jib and mainsail).

It is perfect as for beginners as for more advanced sailors.

I wonder if anyone has ever seen or sailed this boat in UK or another country?
