Dinghies & Day Boats

We have a large and varied fleet of sailing dinghies & day boats available during lessons or for hire for your own adventure. Each craft have their own merits depending on the sailor’s ability and the weather conditions at the time. We will happily help guide you to a boat that will be suitable for your requirements to enjoy your time on our stunning waters.

Due to the shallow waters between the islands on Scilly all of our day boats have centre plates rather than keels and are essentially large dinghies so still possible to capsize, and some are capable of having an outboard engine fitted. Our day boats for hire offer the experienced sailor a fantastic opportunity to explore the islands. Due to changes in demand etc we only have a few day boats now available.

Please get in touch if you would like more information, or if you need help choosing the best boat for you. Let us know your experience (include boats you are used to sailing), what you would like to do, and how many in your party and we can help recommend the right boat for you.

Please look at our “Experience Required” Page for further info on hiring boats from us.


Other dinghies in our fleet include GP14, Laser, Hobie 15. If you do not see a class of baot you are keen for below then ask it maybe we do not have it listed for the web page.
