The 49er, Olympic skiff !
The Forty Niner is a thrilling dinghy, it reaches its maximum power from 15 knots of wind. It is the big brother of the 29er they share a very ergonomic and simplistic deck plan. The construction of the 49er does not use exotic materials (carbon, kevlar) which limits the price. The mast is now made of carbon whereas for the first versions it was a mixed aluminium and fibreglass mast. Its fibreglass hull is very robust and ages very well.
It has been the Olympic skiff since the Sydney games in 2000, it is an open and mixed series but at a high level the physical aspect of this boat does not allow the female crews to compete.
49er FX for women's crews
There is a slightly smaller rigged version for women's crews at the Olympics mainly. But this slightly wiser version is also a very good boat for amateur crews.

As the 49er is an Olympic boat, it is mainly the crews of champions that break down the second-hand market equipment. Thus, advertisements for 49er for sale in very good condition are regular, as is the case for the equipment, sails, mast and deck fittings.
