Ad details :   Caravelle Autre marque for sale in Brest

English family dinghy Cornish Crabber LIMPET DINGHY (identical to the small sailboats Gazelle de Sables or Skellig, a sort of mini Caravelle) in perfect condition. Small, modern sailboat with traditional styling (maintenance-free). The smallest sailboat in the Cornish Crabber range. A rare, ultra-flexible boat. Simple, fun, light, stable and safe. With the charm and build quality you'd expect from a Cornish Crabber. A real little jewel that attracts all eyes and compliments on the beach!

Designed by a former Bentley engineer!

The Limpet is an ultra-flexible dinghy. It weighs the same as a kayak (55kgs) but can comfortably accommodate three people. It can take you for a day on an island with a picnic, or for a multi-day trek with a tent set up directly on the boat.

Model: LIMPET DINGHY Year: 2006 Builder: Cornish Crabber Construction material: Polyester hull (like 99% of pleasure boats, maintenance-free) and epoxy-coated wood finishes Maximum engine power: 3.5 hp Length: 3.00m Beam: 1.30m Weight: 55 kgs (can be easily launched on its own with a beach cart or small removable launch wheels not supplied) Sail area: 6m2

The Limpet Dinghy can be compared to a small Caravelle or a Skellig or even a Gazelle des Sables in France. It can carry up to 3 people on a family outing. The advantage of this dinghy over the Caravelle or Skellig is its low weight and compactness. Weighing just 45 kgs, it can be handled by a single person for launching. Small removable launch wheels are available to make launching on the beach even easier (not supplied). Storage and handling are also facilitated by its small size.

It is extremely stable for its size and weight. This stability means that children and novices can board in complete safety. The boom is high. It's unsinkable, and particularly easy to right alone in the event of desalination. So it's safer than older Caravelles.

Rigging is simple and easy. It is also possible to reduce sail area by removing the jib and moving the mast forward. Last but not least, masting takes just a few minutes, which means you can sail more often, for longer, and change water surfaces more easily.

It can also be rowed or motorized.

It can also be used to participate in rallies of old rigs and maritime festivals (Brest 2024, Semaine du Golfe du Morbihan, etc.). Sailing and rowing enthusiasts also regularly gather to sail together!

The Limpet Dinghy belongs to a special category of dinghies known as rando dinghies. This category is unique. They are not to be confused with the sporty dinghies so well known in sailing centers. The approach to sailing with rando dinghies allows you to concentrate on the pleasure of sailing, and forget all the worries and complexity that can be involved in setting up a more conventional sailboat (mast only possible in a minute, neoprene not compulsory, etc.). If you'd like to know more about this rando concept and discover other models, watch the video on YOUTUBE: PUFFINS TREK "comment bien choisir son dériveur de rando". Take a look at my other ads or my website Puffins-trek FR.

Possible options (at extra cost) : Combined road trailer and launch, awning, motor...
