Jimmy Skiff

 The Jimmy Skiff™ is light enough to be cartopped or hoisted onto the deck of a larger cruising boat. And even though she weighs less than 100lbs in rowing trim, there’s enough room and capacity for three adults or a family of four.

Under sail, the Jimmy Skiff™ exhibits perfect balance and impeccable sailing manners in light or fresh breezes. The "leg-o-mutton" sail is quick to set up and strike, with only the simplest controls, making the Jimmy Skiff a perfect boat for beginning sailors. The traditional sprit boom means that the crew will never get whacked in the head during a surprise jibe.

The basic kit is the rowing version. Add the optional sailing rig kit, and you’ll have the components for the mast, boom, daggerboard, trunk, and kick-up rudder. The sailing rig can be retrofitted to the rowing kit at any point, even long after completion.
