Nikki

A new age for youth sailing

Nikki is the first foiling dinghy designed and built for young and lightweight sailors. 

Ideal for fun, thrills & competitive sailing, this is the boat we all wished we had when we were younger and learning to sail.

The hull is simple, stable, robust & unsinkable, as well as being quick and easy to rig and launch.

Steering is direct, light & responsive, so you can develop your skills early-on for high performance sailing and foiling.

Nikki has wings, planes upwind & down, glides low & fast and foils on all points of sail including tacking and gybing. 

Stable & safe, Nikki can also be sailed without lifting foils, making it highly versatile as an all-purpose dinghy, suited to beginners, for foiling training as well as having very impressive foiling performance for fun and thrills.

Develop your foiling skills early in life

And then you have the ability to attach hydrofoils... Nikki is the first fully foiling production dinghy which is particularly suitable for young and lightweight sailors.

The simple foiling system dramatically reduces the chance of 'crashing' as experienced with many other foiling craft. So more people can enjoy this amazing experience.

The fully adjustable wand allows you to start low to the water surface, gradually flying higher as you gain skill and experience.

All systems are designed with safety in mind. You can quickly and easily lower the boat to the back to the water in an emergency.

 

The fully retractable foils can be easily clipped on or off, all by the push of a button. There is no need to tip the boat over when rigging or launching.

Safe, simple and easy to sail

Nikki has been designed to address as many safety aspects as possible including:

 

- Fully adjustable ride height with safety release

High visibility colours on the sail, wings and foils, so others can easily spot Nikki from a distance.

- Clamps on both centreboard and rudder box, to hold foils in position when launching.

- A mast lock, so that if Nikki capsizes, the mast won't fall out.

- Capsize righting ropes as standard, so any weight sailor can easily bring the boat back upright.

- Padded boom pad to reduce the risk of head injuries.
