Devoti D-Zero Dinghy to Debut on Dublin Bay

10th September 2014
Devoti D-Zero Dinghy to Debut on Dublin Bay

#D-Zero – First there was the RS Aero to visit Ireland and now there's the D-Zero. It's another single-handed dinghy markque making its debut on Dublin Bay later this month when two of the Devoti made singlehander dinghies are launched on Irish waters and made available for demonstration sails.

The D-Zero is based on the Punk dinghy, the unique concept designed by Dan Holman. The D-Zero is a single handed performance dinghy, fully fitted by Harken, with a two piece carbon mast and an 8.1m2 sail, raised by a halyard, and a carbon boom. The hull is 4.2m long overall with a beam of 1.42m.

The Punk has already enjoyed considerable success on the UK dinghy racing circuit. Helmed by Dan himself, on PY 1050, the Punk has made a memorable impression at some of the UK's best known handicap events. Aimed at helms from beginner to expert, the D-Zero can be car topped or carried on industry standard compatible road trailers.

The Irish visit is being organised by DBSC dinghy sailors.
